Last evening Whitney brought Eliza home. She got to spend her first night in her bed after 2 1/2 months in the hospital. According to her mom, she slept very well. Whitney heard her (really) cry for the first time as they got her ready to go and they were transferring her into her car seat. She loves being held and I think she was frustrated by the commotion involved in moving her from the hospital crib to the car seat. She must have been thinking "what is going on?". But she was easily calmed down.
She's such a sweet baby. I can't wait to see her in her home environment. We have Allison for a few days while Whitney settles in with Eliza and gets down the first few feedings without nurse assistance.
Lucky for me, Shelbie was on hand when Allison met Eliza for the first time. I wasn't able to be there so it was really important to record this sweet first encounter. I think having this clip will be important for Allison and Eliza as they grow.
I'm so excited Eliza is home with her family. Thank you all for your prayers and comments. So many of you have cared about our new little baby and I wanted to share this special moment with you.
