Everyone's story is different, and my story is that it was so much fun and a great adventure. There was no complications and Dexter arrived really quickly so I wasn't uncomfortable very long. We stayed at the hospital 3 days before going home. Our favorite nurse was our night nursery nurse who would make sure we woke up to feed Dexter. Her name was Natalie and the 2nd night we discovered that she was also a Red Raider so of course Dex wanted to have a picture taken with her for his baby book. This is screen shot from Preston's phone so the black bars are showing still. Need to get him to send me the original.
If we ever have another kid, we will be using this hospital again. It didn't feel like a hospital at all! My parents came into town so they were there to meet their 4th grandchild! They look so happy in this picture, I love it!!
Sunday my sister and the cousins drove into town for a quick visit. Driving back on Monday. It was so great to have them here even if it was just for 24 hours. The excitement of the kids faces when they came into the apartment was worth it! They were so happy to meet little Dex and hold him.
The rest of the week has been very busy figuring out how to juggle everything. We are getting it down, but it still has its moments of "whoa...what do we do now?" It has taken me 4 days to finish this blog, so who knows when I will write next. Here is a selfie with Dexter!
