Welcome Little Pumpkin!

Monday 1pm–Social Worker called Croi.  We have a 3 day old  baby boy, mom can’t take him home from the hospital. Will you?

Croi said, “I’m gonna call Erat, but I think we’re going to say yes.”

Croi only said to me, “I think this is our baby.” I said, YES! (okay, then she told me a few sentences.)

Spent four hours at work, shaking, so excited. How can you prepare for a week away from work when all you can think is… baby boy!

5pm–Meet at home, install carseat, check it again, drive to hospital.

5:30pm–Walk up to the nurses station and see the most beautiful baby boy. I’m not biased 😉  All the nurses said so. I said, “We are here to pick—-is that our little pumpkin?”

Parenting fail #17–didn’t bring coming home outfit.  The nurses gave us tons of stuff, but didn’t have any newborn boy clothes. Or newborn clothes at all.  He came home in a 6 mo. sized sleeper with pink hearts. And a crocheted hat in the shape of a pumpkin. Yeah, he’s gonna love those pictures one day.

Brought him home.

Have spent 3 days staring at him and letting dishes and laundry pile up.  And I can’t think of a better way to spend my time.
