We have survived the first days at home!

Ellison is doing great! Ellison is 4 days old and today is our second day at home. She has her first pediatrician appointment this afternoon. Our first night at home was a little rough because of some "gassy" issues- Connor and I each got about 2-3 hours of sleep that night but she was worth it. She has had several visitors over the weekend and spent some quality time with her grandparents. Last night she was an ANGEL! She got on a schedule (which I know it won't necessarily stick) but she woke up consistently every 2 hours to eat with mommy and then daddy had diaper duty and she would go right back down without a fuss and sleep 2 hours. I got about 5-6 hours of sleep and Connor probably got more like 6-7 hours. We feel a little more refreshed this morning. Right now Ellison is sleeping in her swing getting a tan through the window because of a little case of jaundice. Connor will return to work tomorrow so we are going to enjoy this beautiful day together. We uploaded more pictures since being home onto the same snapfish album if you want to check them out (the link is included in a blog below). Have a great day!

Ellison looks great. Catch up on your sleep when you can. Take care of that little bundle of joy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you & your family.

Connor, take your time getting back on the courts. Hope to see you there before too long though.

Your racquetball buddy,
