Leaving the Hospital and Firsts

Wednesday Feb 2nd (her due date) we left the hospital.  It was a beautiful day and unseasonably warm.  Although, I was ready to go home and be with my family I will miss the luxuries of the hospital.  Like room service- which by the way the food at Rex is WONDERFUL!  We even got a meal for that evening as a parting gift.  So nice!
My mom stayed with me at the hospital and we had so much fun and it was kinda like a slumber party.  I know that is strange but our nights with Cailyn were not bad and we got to talk and talk about everything under the sun.  I love my mommy!
The time had arrived and it was time to go home.  Here we are ready to leave and take her home.

How SWEET! LOVE these photos! Glad to hear Rex takes such good care of Mommies! That is where I was born, ions ago. Of course, it is probably a lot nicer now! What great photos of your newly expanded family! Can't wait to meet her!

Ha! The first time being disappointed by NC State basketball made me laugh. Hinton and Elsbeth have learned that lesson too. Actually, I've had 32+ years of that lesson.

Cailyn is beautiful by the way!
