Home from the Hospital

I had mixed feelings about coming home from the hospital.  On one hand, they take care of you and the babies so you can rest.  On the other hand, they come in and take your blood pressure every 2 hours so you can't rest.

All in all, we couldn't wait to get home with these babies and get them in their own clothes and in their own beds.

They may have been born on the same day, 1 minute apart, but they are completely different. 

Jane is mini me.  She is feisty, knows what she wants and wants it right away.  She's a cuddler, hates baths, hates getting her diaper and clothes changed, loves eating and being swaddled.  She loves her hands and always has then on her face somewhere when she's sleeping.

Ethan is a lot like Dave.  Calm, curious, and content. :)  He is my little quiet boy - he is content to just look around and hates being held on your shoulder because he can't see what's going on.  He falls asleep within 5 minutes of starting a feeding, hates baths and hates diaper and clothing changes.

Here are some photos from our first week home:

Ethan's lip is even better In person - it is so cute. They're so tiny and I miss holding them already!!! But y'all look great- and I'm so glad you're home with your mom there. What doesn't that woman do??? She's so fabulous!! Just like her daughter and davey-pooh. The pic of jane snuggled into Dave ps is my fave.

I'd like to discuss some kind of co-habitation arrangement where you can be our future baby photographer. Please contact me to work out the details.

Gorgeous pictures, gorgeous babies. Love it.

They are beautiful! And as well documented as I expected. One of life's simplest pleasures is falling asleep on the couch with a newborn cuddles in your arms. I love that picture of Dave. Hope you're doing well :)
