Lovin' it!

Can I just tell you how much easier life is without our daily drive to and from the hospital?!  We have been home for a little over a week, and we are finally settled in and loving having Addie at home!  Are we tired?  Yes.  Are we weary?  Yes.  
Do we love every minute?  YES! :)

Addie went to her first pediatrician appointment last week and he is very pleased with her progress!  She weighed 5 pounds, 13 ounces and she was 19 1/4 inches long!  Woohoo!  We are working hard to put some more weight on her so she can catch up a little bit... we'll go see Dr. Huss again in a couple of weeks to see how she's doing. :)
As for life at home, Addie is really a good baby... we're learning what her cries mean and what she needs to be comfortable.  We have to remember that she's technically not even supposed to be born.  Crazy!  That gets hard sometimes when we want her to do certain things like put herself to sleep or learn to play.  We also can't really start looking at all of those charts and such until she's a lot older.  No biggie.  We can wait.

Naturally, I have a lot of pictures from her homecoming day that I want to share:

Sweet baby changing into her coming home outfit!

A bittersweet day for our fave nurse, Carly :(  We miss her already!

All dressed up and ready to go!
Our hospital family :)

Itty bitty baby in a big ole car seat!

Addie did very well during her first car ride!  She loves it!  We may have to drive around on nights that she can't get to sleep. :)

The Jackson 3 at home at last :)

Waited nine weeks for this picture...

More pics to follow soon.  I've got a baby to feed and Jack Bauer to watch. :)

Much love to everyone for your continued support and prayers.  
Y'all mean the world to us!

Thank you so much for sharing your Addie with everyone. I feel as though I know you all and I've fallen in total love with you and your family. Prayers will continue to flow as God continues to watch over beautiful Addie and to her parents for continued strength and faith.
Her progress is amazing! God is great!
