We're home!

It's been a big day! We are now settling in at home. Busy, busy! There are lots of girlie clothes to wash not to mention everyone else's laundry that's been piling up while we were gone. I think I've found my new passion :)

Going home was emotional for everyone. Bittersweet for us. We had a wonderful hospital stay bonding with Eliana's birth family. Coparenting was pretty nice! Darren and I got naps in and time to ourselves to go eat and shower. Now reality will set in and we'll be on our own.

It's been fun to introduce Ellie to more of her grandparents today. We look forward to having more visitors this weekend.

Update on the weight gain: It was most likely a problem with her initial weighing. That makes so much sense! She weighed 6lbs 8 oz last night. The 3 oz weight loss was much more normal! Her little tummy is still so tiny! But she's nursing great!
