Sorry that I have taken so long to report. It has been a crazy time being back home with Nathan. There is so much to do and so much to learn. Not only when it comes to him, but when it comes to Meredith and I because now there is an extra person in our house. It is fun, but it is a challenge.
Today was “people come visit” day and it got a little taxing on both of us. I left to go for a walk with my Aunt Mary and left poor Meredith by herself. I think I am going to make a sign that says, “Maximum Baby Visit 15 minutes” because he doesn’t really do anything and in 15 minutes you can see him and hold him and get whatever level of the delivery story that you are comfortable hearing. Or if that rule doesn’t really work then I want a “when the next person arrives you must pass him to them and make your orderly way to the door” but that doesn’t fit on a sign as well.
Meredith and I let him stay in the nursery while we were in the hospital so last night was our first night with him. We were blown away by how awake he was. He is like his daddy with his mornings and nights confused. Right now he is sleeping though, and Mommy and Daddy have a new rule. If the baby is sleeping then at least 1 of us must be sleeping too, because if not we are just wasting an opportunity.
I know that proud papa’s are a dime a dozen, but here is one story that I have to tell. At 5:30 this morning Meredith woke me up and said, “You have to take him.” My first thought was “I do NOT want to get up” and then she put him in my arms and he was awake with is dark eyes looking up at me and I was ready to get up. I mean how could I resist such a pretty little face.
