We Survived!

Our first night at home with Carter was a success... although I only received 2 hours of sleep. He is a really good baby but he learned quickly that if he cries I will hold him. So he sleeps very soundly as long as he is in our arms or next to us in bed. As soon as I put him in his bed, he gets cranky. I think he has learned that he is king of this house. He claimed our bed as soon as he got home:

Here are some pics of us as we prepared to leave the NICU. I can't believe he spent 54 days there. The nurses and doctors are so amazing... they took such good care of him and I know that he was loved and cuddled with when we were not able to be there.




And finally, here is proof that he will sleep in his bed at times. (Usually when we are wide awake!) Isn't the sheet adorable? It was made for him by his Aunt Jackie.




For now, that's all I have to say. I've got to go spend time with my boy!

I was thinking of you all last night and wondering if you were up - you could have called I'd have been up what with the different time zones. :) I'm so glad everything went well though Carter has obviously learned quickly that you are a soft touch. ;) Hope you get a bit more sleep tonight! Xx

I was thinking about you guys, too! I'm so glad it went well. I could never put Cameron down, so we co-slept with him for a looooong time. I LOVED it! :)
