We left the hospital yesterday at one to come home with our little girl. It's so strange how you can enter a place a family of two and leave as a family of three. When we got home, I think I was a little ambitious and decided to get on the computer, cook dinner, put things away...before long, I was on a downward spiral. Around 6pm I kind of lost it - physically, emotionally, and mentally. The exhaustion was a little more than I could handle. But, God granted us a few hours of sleep last night (and I mean a few). They were just what we needed to get through another day at home. Annelise is doing so well! She's breast feeding like a champ - which any mom out there knows can be such a frustrating time the first few days home. She didn't sleep much last night, but dad and I are happy to have enjoyed a much needed nap today. The weather here in Michigan in blizzard-like, so its been nice to be inside a warm house together. We're spending lots of time snuggling our little one. I've been told you can't spoil a newborn - although I intend to try. Keep praying for health of Annelise - and for my quick recovery. Each day is exponentially better than the one before. I'm sure you'll be seeing many new pictures/videos soon!
