The family came home yesterday. I never did make it back over to the hospital on Wednesday. Honestly, I didn't trust myself to drive or be able to walk that far. I have what I call Noodle Days in the first place with the fibro where you feel so weak, tired and limp you're like a noodle. Well, I was dropping things and limping about--definitely weak with relief--LOL! Good Lord! You'd think I had had the baby--ROFL! Anyways, I stayed home for some R&R time and got some decent sleep finally Wednesday night since the worry and euphoric adrenaline rush had subsided. :)
So last night I went over for a couple of hours for a quiet visit. Ian was sitting with Mama.
He does have dark hair with a little curl in it.
He likes being loosely swaddled and sleeps a lot. (Must remind him of his old familiar cramped quarters, eh?)
I got to hold him for over an hour! He may be sleeping with those eyes closed, but he makes little noises the whole time...and faces...and he jerks and wiggles about. I told him that maybe he's going to grow up to be a talker like his Gramma Rita. ;)
Then Dagan took Ian so he could wake up the sleepy guy so that Leah could feed him so they could try and get some sleep. You just never get much sleep in the hospital, so Dagan and Leah were very tired. (Dagan had stayed the whole time and slept on this fold out chair in the room.)
Big babies are apparently more content to just sleep, I guess.
Dagan rubbed Ian's arms...
... and ticked his cheeks.
Doesn't he look like he's laughing here?
He finally made his sucking mouth but he never opened his eyes--LOL! I bet he'll sleep through the night pretty soon. Hope so, anyways. Gramma took off for home. I'm planning to go back again tonight for a short visit. Dagan had the week off from work, so Leah's not alone. Such a great team they are.
Karma's been exhausted, too...
...from me being gone so much--LOL!
(She sits by the door--no lie!)
We're all adjusting to this huge shift in our lives. ;)
Well, Caroline is coming this afternoon because I had to reschedule from Tuesday. The short cooler spell has passed and it's gotten hotter (85 today) and sticky humid. Had to close up yesterday and put the AC on again. I'm sure over the next few weeks things will fall into some kind of a routine. Bye bye for now from one delighted grandma! :) :)
