We’re Home

We’re home! After staying five nights in hospital, Phoebe and I got to go home today. It’s so nice being in your own home isn’t it?

This is really a quick post to say that we are doing well. I am really tired. Actually I’m deliriously exhausted because I can count on two hands how many hours of sleep I have had over the last five days since being in hospital. Phoebe likes to stay awake all night and has made herself well accustomed to my bosoms, sometimes wanting to stay attached for hours on end. Last night was the first time she slept for 3 consecutive hours from 1am to 4am and while I felt good getting those 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep, I am still catching up on the previous nights that I’ve missed.

But it is what it is and I am loving the snuggles on the chest and I am cherishing each moment. I thought I’d share a few snaps of the girls meeting their sister for the first time and Jacob and I getting Phoebe ready in her new Safety 1st Infant Carrier (gifted) that arrived late yesterday afternoon in time for our departure from hospital. Who says the youngest gets the hand-me-downs?

I might be a little quiet on the blog over the next couple of days and possibly weeks. I may not post anything to do with plumbing because the only plumbing I’ve been thinking about lately is my own. 😉

I do have a sponsored post that I wrote before Phoebe’s birth that will be up tomorrow. And I am taking part in the Family Lens Challenge using a loaned Olympus Camera. I can’t wait to share the photos with you.

Thank you to all of you for your wonderful messages of congratulations on Phoebe’s birth. You are a beautiful community and I loved reading each message before and after Phoebe’s arrival.

Don’t forget that I am still running a give away where you can win a $100 Red Balloon Voucher.

Tell me, has anything exciting happened to you in the last week? Any tips on getting a newborn to sleep at night rather than through the day?
