Comming home

Every one woke up in a much better mood.  Sara Beth was on a feeding schedule that was working for both her and Heather.  Heather and I were feeling like real parents.  Similar to how a relationship grows stronger after an argument, our feelings of parenting grew from the turmoil of the previous day.  

Sara Beth took her hearing test and passed it (of course) and the nurse commented on how good she was.  Apparently most babies are not happy with the experience, but Sara Beth was calm through the whole process.

We got the discharge papers for both Heather and Sara Beth.  Both were healthy and ready to go.  Heather got out of the hospital gown and into some regular clothes.  We put SaraB into her going home out fit, and she just looks adorable.  I know I have to say that because I'm her father, but I don't think my bias plays any part in it.   She is just that good looking.



Another father told me that the drive home from the hospital is a very stressful thing.   Sara Beth slept though the whole car ride, but I was convinced that every car on the road would run into us.  I went home driving more cautiously then I have since I got my drivers license.   Of course we made it home just fine.
