We're Home!

We made the trek home today! Everyone is doing so well. We were released at about 11:00. When we got home we introduced Jace to the dogs. They are doing quite well actually. You can tell that then know he is special. Once they got used to his smell -- they really have left him alone. It was difficult because they haven't had much attention since Sunday night. They have missed me completely and just wanted to be loved. I am grateful that they are getting along so well. When everyone was settled, Joe called his parents and they brought us lunch. We had a nice visit -- complete with rootbeer floats! (If you know Wayne ... this won't surprise you). It was time for Jace to eat, so I went upstairs. Sweet Ann unloaded my dishwasher for me. Jace must have been starving because we were feeding for over an hour. In the mean time, Ann and Wayne needed to go. I felt bad that I wasn't there to say goodbye -- or that they couldn't stay longer. They will be here on Monday though to help us out. I am so grateful for such a loving family that supports us.

I'm glad you all made it home today! This is when the fun really starts! I remember when we brought Abby home from the hospital she fell asleep in the car, so we left her in there while we ate lunch. She was still asleep when we were done and we just said "Now what?" Good luck figuring it all out...it's an exciting time!

Yay! I bet it feels great. Good luck with everything, I am sure that you are going to be great being a real parent and all. You basically parent how many kids at school? He is beautiful!

Yeah! He is such a cute boy! Mom got some cute photos. Seen them yet? I do so like the lovely boy. And isn't it nice that he can only cry so loud? Nothing to a 5-year-old's enraged cry, I tell you!

So glad all is going well, including with the dogs! I think our dogs would have jumped all over the sweet thing! At least yours are well behaved. I'm glad everyone is healthy and doing well.
