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.
