7: After two sleepless nights in the hospital, we finally got to bring you home! The sun was shining, the sky was perfectly blue, and mommy & daddy were beaming as we put you in your carseat to take you home. We left the house with two and now were returning as a family of three. Feeding, diaper changes, baths, rocking, swaddling, and praying became a regular activity in our house. Your grandparents couldn't wait to snuggle and love on you and they all made special visits to see you.
