Over a month ago now, I posted all about Burke's entrance into the world and promised more on our hospital stay. I will keep it as brief as possible with mostly pictures!
Overall, it was a wonderful stay. Minus the whole c-section thing. Recovery was bad. There's just no other way to say it. Getting out of bed - O.M.G. worst thing I've ever had to do. Lets just say there were a LOT of tears shed. I spent the next 3 days pretty much in my hospital gown eating hospital food while so many friends and family members came to visit. See:
For all my friends and family members who were not able to make it -- get ready to be flooded with pictures of Burke from the first few days of his life!
This is Dad's favorite picture he says :)
My dad, Grandpa, is loving his first little grandbaby!
Brennan's dad, Paw Paw, loving his FIFTH grandbaby in 3 years!
Brennan's mom, Maw Maw, loving on her newest little addition to her grandbabies
Some proud grandparents!
I spent the next 2 days pretty much in my hospital gown eating hospital food while so many friends and family members came to visit. I did get out of my hospital gown on the third day and into my normal clothes. "Normal" meaning pajamas. Duh. See:
Yes I have a double chin and no makeup and I am sportin' the hospital gown --- get over it! lol
The little SwaddleMe swaddler is amazing. He sleeps in one every night!
Plus: look at those lips!
First time in his carseat headed home for the first time!
Burke is meeting the pups!
He's just so little!!!!
Hanging on the floor with the pups
Little bitty boy in a big crib! Yes, he's been in his crib since day 1 and I wouldn't change it! I love that he's in his own room and own crib!
I love his little smiles!
I just love his little wrinkles on his head!
Headed to his one week doctors appointment! I was so happy to get out of the house! I wasn't cleared to drive for the first 2 weeks post-delivery so unless Brennan took us both out - I was inside the house! Since we didn't want Burke to get exposed too early to germs - we went to places like Taco Bell and ate in the car lol. It didn't matter though - I was just happy to get out!
Overall we had a pretty good first week at home. Brennan was amazing! He was able to take off work for a little over a week and stay home with me. Since I was in a lot of pain there was no way that I could have been home alone and done it all myself.
I PROMISE to post more often! Burke is doing so much and I will post his one month pictures and newborn pictures SOON! Promise! Stay tuned....
