Night Owls

Little Miss Baby Ella is asleep in my arms. It's our fourth night home from the hospital. She's so incredibly precious, but she has her days and nights confused. I am hoping for some good stretches of sleep. It's still early -- almost 1 am, so we'll see how the rest of the night goes. I know it will take some time for her to get switched around.

The last few days have been a blur. I always am asking what day it is. Outside of wanting more sleep, Mike and I are just soaking up how wonderful it is to be Ella's parents.

Mike goes back to work tomorrow. How I wish he didn't have to go back. As usually, he's been amazing and has taken to fatherhood quite nicely. He's probably changed more diapers than me, since I handle the feediings, and he is always helping comfort her or entertain her. I love watching them interact. It's apparent that I will be the bad cop. There is no way he can say no to her.

We've been blessed with many visitors. My mom left today -- it was so hard to say goodbye, but my brother Justin and SIL Brandi arrived today and will be with Ella and I tomorrow.

Okay this little one is out -- maybe I can get at least an hour sleep as the next feeding should be around 2:30.
