First Day Home from the NICU

Today is Addah’s first day home from the hospital NICU! Lakin isn’t sure what to think. She didn’t get to see Addah in the hospital, as she was too young to come into the NICU, even for a moment. All she had seen was a polaroid photograph that a nurse took for us, and the pictures that we took.

I don’t think she really understood the concept of “you have a baby sister” until she saw the baby coming home with us. She’s excited and fascinated and a big help, running to pick out diapers for her sister when I change her. It’s such a good feeling, having all of my little family in one place!
