There is no place like home! Now don’t get me wrong. 5 nights in hospital has its perks like having delicious hot meals 3 times a day plus snacks and all of your tea made for you. Lots of baby cuddles, family and friends can visit for cuddles too and a chat. That is the nice part. But by day 3 or 4 I am usually busting to go home and for this stay it was no exception.
We were a bit last minute with the carseat so of course we didn’t have the correct extension strap for the capsule to go into the car and despite a last minute trip to the shops at night still didn’t have the correct one. But the great thing about being baby number 6 is that we had 2 baby carseats to choose from so we managed to have another baby seat in the van just after midnight. Retro daddy arrived at 8 expecting to find me packed and ready to go. I think we’re all adjusting to newborn time as I was in my pjs feeding and still had to pack. By 9am we were on our way home. Despite a few tears at the first 2 sets of traffic lights, our little guy fell asleep the whole drive home and it just so great to be home.
I have so many photos to upload and tomorrow I’ll share the birth story which just happened to be the most relaxed and straightforward c/section I’ve had. There is nothing like the feeling of having a baby and it still doesn’t matter whether it’s your first or sixth or another number. It’s as precious as anything and we are just loving another member of our family. And would I do it again? Absolutely.
Anyway it’s pouring with rain now and for the next few days so we are just going to bunker down and enjoy some home time. Everyone is glad to have their little brother home and the littlest two are non stop snuggling into me and wanting to hold ‘the bubby’. We’ve also had our first chip passed in to lawson’s bassinet just in case he was hungry! So I’ll be working on the eyes in the back of my head that have had a week off………………….
