We have been so spoiled these past few weeks with lots of friends coming back showering us with gifts and dinner. I think I have only had to cook 2 times since Charlie was born. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family!

Charlie's First Bath

Charlie was such a good boy for his first bath. Not nearly as angry as Jack and Drew were at this age. There is nothing better than the smell of a clean baby!!

Uncle Jimmy sent Jack and Drew some birthday gifts from the Masters. Drew loves the Masters hat...but will only wear it backwards. He is too cute in his new hat!

Birthday celebrations

While everyone was here to meet Charlie, we had a belated birthday celebration for Drew, Spike and Miller. Drew LOVED the cake! He got a great farm set from Mim and Miller and an awesome play grill from Pa and Mimi.

Thank you Oma and Opa

Oma and Opa sent Charlie and I a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

Going home!

All bundled up and ready to go home.
First time in the carrier. He didn't even fuss when I put him in. What a sweet boy!

Well, after 2 sleepless nights at the hospital, I had had enough and was ready to go home. Let's just say that my experience at UK this time was not great. I had wonderful experiences at the hospital with Jack and Drew, but that was not the case this time. It started with a bad IV experience, continued with epidural issues (I now have 1o needle holes in my spine that hurt like crazy - I have pictures but won't scare you with those!) and then while being transferred to my hospital bed from the OR my epidural fell out (without anyone knowing) and I did not get the good shot of pain meds to get me through the worst of the pain from the c-section. So, needless to say, I was in some pain and playing catch up with pain meds. I had a wonderful nurse the first 2 days but that is about the only nice thing I can say. I got tired of people coming in every half hour to poke me and Charlie. I was tired of reminding them to bring me the pain pills (I was in a lot of pain). And in general I was over the whole thing. I begged the doctors and they agreed to let us go home a day early. Finally, we were discharged and I got to rest at home.

Lots of family and friends to meet!

Charlie was a very popular boy in the hospital. He had so many new people to meet and loved all of the attention. He is such a lucky little boy to be loved by so many special people already!

Jack and Drew meet their little brother.

As you can clearly see from the pictures, Drew was excited to finally be a "big brother" and not the baby any more. Jack was a little more tentative, and just wanted to be with his Mommy. After I got them back to the house, Jack started to talk about his little brother Charlie a little more, so he'll come around soon!

Dad brings them in from daycare.

Drew, being a very sweet boy.

Jack's presents helped... a little bit.

Drew's attention was briefly held by his Curious George book.

"Get me outta here!"
