Since I had a c-section, we stayed at the hospital for four days. I remember when Christopher was born and we were ready to get out of the hospital and home as soon as possible. This time, I was excited to stay as long as I could-- it was like a vacation away from the noise and chaos of our house full of kids!! Grandma and Grandpa came to the hospital several times while the kids were in school so that they could play with Ellie in peace and quiet! And sometimes they came to visit after school so that all the kids could come too.

It's so fun having a newborn again-- you can just cuddle them all day. Or at least you can until they need to head to the tanning bed.

Such a pretty, squishy baby
