just as his sisters before him.. food prints in his daddy’s + Papa’s Bible!
our last full day in the hospital and I was finally feeling “good”. getting out bed and walking the halls was so beneficial in my recovery with Baker and the twins, but this time it took me so much longer to get out of bed.
I cant get enough of that hair!!
we didn’t have guests that last day..aside from Ashley + Grayson making a quick stop that evening to bring us dinner. the hospital food is actually really delicious, but both of us were kind of over it.
PLUS it was also the best to watch Grayson with baby Brady
(his big bro status changes in just a few short months)
..speaking of auntie and uncle j.. the girls had THE best time with them while we were away at the hospital. Ash + J graciously took our brood of babes for a few days and treated them to the most fun. they loved every minute of it!
bathtime! Baker and Grayson look SO big in this picture.
where did our babies go!
we had a few other visitors while we were in the hospital:
Brady’s Nana (my mom)
Duke (my dad)
Teresa (pseudo grandparent and BB’s best girlfriend!)
..and Amy came to visit, too!
finally friday came and we were busting out of that hospital joint!!
we were so ready to get home to those three girls with our baby boy.
we arrived home around 5pm on Friday evening to a busy house of excited girls. Baker was beside herself with excitement and we literally made it three steps into the door before she was insisting on seeing her new baby brother. we sat his carseat on the counter and let the big girls and Baker hop up there to see him again for the first time since they met him just a few days before. the only way we could peel Baker away was to promise her first dibs on holding him.
once again she floored us with her sweetness and interest in Brady. I didn’t, for one second, think my 20 month old would understand at all whatsoever about her new sibling and I prayed it would go okay and not a complete disaster when we brought Brady home. oh but I was totally wrong.
she’s been amazing with him.
..and of course the twins are totally smitten!! looking back at these first moments home with Baker the twins have grown SO MUCH!
recovery continues. everyday I’m doing better and better. I know I’m not the first mama to birth four babes via c-section, but man this time was so tough. I am finally feeling much better and have been able to stay off the pain meds for the last couple days. I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I don’t know what I would do without Jordan and his amazing fatherhood role he plays so well. he has been home for almost 2 weeks with us and he lets me sleep when Brady sleeps and has taken on full care with the twins and Baker while I and tending to our newest tiny one. I have loved every moment of watching him interact with all of our girls. I couldn’t do any of this without the help he gives.
