Today we brought Colin home. He's doing great! He's lost a bit of weight and was at 5 lbs. 10 oz. (losing about 8 ounces). They aren't too worried, but we'll be going to the pediatrician a day early. He's eating awesomely now, and I have to say I expect breastfeeding to rock (since I can't do it overnight, I get to sleep…
Anyway, here are some things heard around the house today.
Daddy: Baby Colin is going to come home with us today. He's going to be with us forever.
Rachel: Forever?... … … Oh.
Or, as Rachel was in her rocking chair:
Grandma Candy: Has Rachel ever rocked so hard she's fallen backward?
Rachel goes falling backward in the chair. Don't worry though, she hopped right back up and rocked so hard she almost did it again.
Then there was:
Daddy: This morning Winnie went into Rachel's room and woke her up at 6:30.
Daddy: I can't wait until Rachel can turn the knob and leave the room, so we can close it at night and not have this problem.
… 7 hours later …
Erin: Rachel, stop screaming, go have a time out in your room!
Lots of screaming ensues until to door is closed tight.
Erin: Hey, how did you get out of your room? Did you open that door yourself?
All around, be careful what you wish for.
Then my favorite (though it began yesterday instead of today).
Mommy: You've held Colin for a while; can Grandpa Ed have a turn?
Grandpa Ed: Thank you.
10 seconds (at most) later
Rachel: Ok, my turn again.
I know there were more I missed. But these were certainly the most fun. I have the best daughter EVER!
