Gracie Girl got to come home from the NICU yesterday on her 2 week birthday!
Daddy has never driven so slowly in his whole life.
We are so happy to have her home…
…And are very very sleepy. We are. Gracie is not. Gracie is too excited about her new digs to sleep.
The pupperz are adjusting well. Or adjusting at least, Bernie kind of seems like he has had a psychotic break of some sort. Riding a major wave of anxiety.
Bella is so protective, like Nana from Peter Pan ‘cept lit’ler.
Now we are going to start trying to transition back to a new version of reality.
Thank you all so much for your support during the toughness. Now it is time for the JOY!
** UPDATE: I have already received one comment about this so I wanted to clear it up before I get 20 more. The pillow already came out of the crib, the stuffed animals are securely attached to the bars of the crib- one is actually a noise maker- and the bumpers will be coming out as soon as she gets a little stronger. Thank you for the heads up, we have the crib safety thing under control, but we certainly don’t want to do anything to hurt Gracie Girl. Which became evident last night after the 1000th time I tip toed in there just to make sure she was still breathing.**
