Our first day/night at home with Maeci....

Well I wrote this post once but for some reason it didn't post....
Our first day home with Maeci went pretty good. We are all just trying to get settled in and get a routine started. Brad has been busy doing alot around the house and getting stuff putt away...he is such a great husband and dad! Oh yeah and he is taking care of me since I am a little layed up from the surgery!Camden is starting to adjust a litte better. He does not like it when she cries really loud...like during her bath last night! He got very upset because he didn't understand why she was crying!He held her for the first time last night and fed her a bottle...boy did he love that!! He has been giving her lots of kisses and hugs:) Maeci slept alot during the day yesterday and I wasn't sure how last night would go. She went to sleep around 7:30 and I finally woke her up around 11:00 to nurse her before I headed to bed. She went right back to sleep so I went to bed thinking this could be a long night since she had slept ALL day. She woke up at 1:00 and she took a couple oz. of formula and went right back to sleep and slept until 6:00 this morning! I about died that she slept that long! I figured she would be up for the day after I fed her. Nope she ate and went back to sleep and is still sleeping and it's 9:00! I know it's the first night but I hope she continues to be a good sleeper! I will probably have to maybe wake her up one more time in the night to nurse since 5 hours is a long time to go without me nursing or pumping. And she really needs to really eat every 4 hours since she was losing some weight in the hospital and newborns just need to eat more often! Well the rest of the household is getting up so I better get going!
