We had this awesome chair that had a broken spring in it so it was super loud when you sat down and got up and tried to rock :p Jim was just about ready to settle in for night one. Neither of us wanted to put her down….and I’m pretty sure we haven’t since 🙂
My poor parents! The original plan was for them to arrive on Saturday, May 23rd. But then I went into labor on the 16th. They immediately ran around their house in Phoenix packing up and raced to the airport. They got on a direct flight from Phoenix to Tulsa that was supposed to arrive at 10:05pm. But then their flight left 40 minutes late…which put them directly in line with the tornadoes that we were dealing with, so they were redirected to land in Oklahoma City….and then they didn’t have enough gas to get to Tulsa…so they had to refuel….and then they had let everyone off the plane to use the bathroom so they had to corral all the passengers back on…. They finally arrived in Tulsa around 1am, still had to get a rental car and drive to our house. They pulled in the driveway around 3:30 am and were at the hospital with breakfast in hand by 8 am. Talk about a whirlwind!
Later that afternoon my best friend Lauren arrived! She stayed until late that evening AND she ventured out and got me some delicious dinner. For some random reason(residual first trimester craving?) I really really wanted a coke to drink and all the hospital had was Pepsi(NOT the same) so she hooked a sister up.
During their visit Abigail put on a fabulous puppet show from behind my privacy curtain. Haha! She made up one story and she recited “I’ll Love You Forever” along with my mom as she read.
The next day(Monday) was discharge day, but not until that night. We didn’t have any visitors at all that day(just one right before we left!) so Jim and I had a super lazy day in our room just napping and snuggling and watching tv/social media. It was actually pretty nice!
Welcome to the real world, sweetheart. Where they spell your name wrong on your very first day of life.
We came home on Monday night around 7pm….but I have another post about that coming later!
