Considering I'm adjusting to life as a new mom with a newborn at HOME, I'm putting a lot of pictures on here instead of words so I don't have to think too much :) After 8 weeks in Charleston, we made the journey back to Columbia on Saturday. I still can't believe we're actually home, and we made it through this. I know it's going to take a while before it actually hits us what all we went through. It's amazing how there can be fleeting moments where I almost forget that she had open heart surgery and spent 5 weeks in the hospital now that we are home. We are so incredibly thankful that at this point we get to treat her as a regular newborn. How great is it that my worries now are when is she due to eat again, how much sleep will we get, will I get a shower today, and how many outfits will she go through in a day?? One day I'll hopefully be able to put into words my thoughts about how far we've come - just not yet.
Funny moment yesterday - I told Andrew that I needed to run to Target for a few things, and he said he'd go with me. Then we both went, "Oh yeah, we've got a baby to take care of and can't just run out!" On the feeding front - Adeline is definitely working on a double chin - way to go baby girl!
Adeline has an appointment with her cardiologist tomorrow and pediatrician on Thursday. I think I better pack her diaper bag now or who knows what will make it in there in the morning!
