Lawson was able to come home on Tuesday afternoon...and we have been so busy since then, holding him and cuddling him and giving some much needed attention to Nalley, that I haven't had a chance to update my blog. He is doing well, slowing getting the hang of feeding and sloooowly gaining a little weight. His breathing is getting better but I am still neurotic and find myself freaking out when it gets too fast...I am severely sleep deprived and completely unorganized. I forgot how much time and energy a newborn takes.
We went out for a "test run" to the outside world yesterday while I still had the help of Shayne, who will be going back to work on Monday. We tried at our first stop to go in the store without the double stroller..a.k.a. "The Bus", it was a gong show to say the least. Nalley was pulling feminine hygiene products off of the shelves and carrying them around with her. I was all hands with Lawson in the bucket seat, trying to wrangle Nalley back and do some shopping while balancing my purse on my shoulder. I didn't want any help from Shayne so that I could see what it would be like...let's just say I won't be doing that again!!!
Next, we used "The Bus" and it went much more smoothly, although I think I need a special class driver's license to operate that thing. At least I didn't feel like I was herding cats and both children were contained. I am so lucky and so thankful to have such a wonderful husband to do any and everything I ask, even when I change my mind 2 or 3 times as to what needs to be done first. Thank you Shayne for being the greatest strength and support during the absolute best and worst week of my life!!!
