They let me leave the hospital about 6 hours after I had the baby. It was such a blessing because I only had to be gone from my first child, Micah from 10:00 am to about 8:00 pm that evening. We had a heartwarming experience taking the baby home. Micah was just at awe with the new baby.
Micah said “Baby.” “Hi Baby!” “Happy.” It was so cute. Here’s the movie and a couple of pictures:
Here is our first family picture after coming home. I was so happy to be with home with the new baby and Micah!
This is our friend who stayed with Micah while we were at the hospital. She was happy to meet the baby too!
But don’t worry just because we left the hospital 6 hours later doesn’t mean they abandoned me. The midwives came to visit me at home for 5 days after the birth. How awesome is that? I got to go home to be with my family and sleep in my own bed. Happy day! 🙂
