Hospital - Day 4

Today was our last full day in the Hospital. We had some good feedings but they are taking longer since we strip the kids down to wake them up - probably at least 1.5 hours per feeding that we do each 3 hours (from when you start). I think Husband would agree that: (1) My boobs are far too "on display" at all times, (2) breastfeeding (despite my warnings) is way harder than expected and (3) he has to help out more than he thought he would. And he's very good at helping.

Poor Ned did not have a good day today - he was circumcised. I didn't really care whether he was or not but it was important to Husband. We did a family trip to the nursery to check on him - Penny came too (in her bassinet - they don't let you carry your babies around).

Here is some video of cute Ned noises (with me encouraging Penny to eat in the background). He makes so many funny faces that we often hand him to visitors so they can stare adoringly. Penny is a super peaceful sleeper and she loves to sleep on me - as shown in our nap photo. Grammy also came for a visit and I included a photo of her with Penny. Grammy insists hats off in photos - grammies can be very opinionated!

Love the video and the pictures. You guys are doing so wonderfully! Lots of changes already - congrats on the feeding success!

It's funny now to think that you worried about not feeling Ned move around in utero. He's got quite the stretching and kicking routine going on in the video! They are so adorable. Today you get to take them home!! Good luck!!

Look at Ned go!! That's awesome :) And I love the picture of you and Penny sleeping...isn't that the best when one falls to sleep on your chest?

Sounds like you guys are doing great.

Nothing like curling up with a cuddly baby on your chest. *sigh* You all look great and I love the video of Ned!
