Bringing Home Baby

Ella Grace is 2 days old now (May 14, 2011)! This is the day that we got to take home our precious baby girl : ) We were so excited to get to leave the hospital and take Ella Grace to her new home! However, I must admit that I might have cried a little as we were leaving! As we rolled past labor and delivery (in our lovely wheelchair, of course) I was so sad that the time had come and passed by so quickly! Then as we drove past the my OB doctor's office on the way out, I was even more sad because it seemed like just the day before we just saw our baby on the ultrasound monitor, heard her heartbeat and found out we were having a GIRL! We spent so much time there the past few months preparing to meet our daughter and now it was all over...that part anyway... I know this is how I'm gonna feel for the rest of my life though as I watch her grow up! Anyway, bittersweet it was. So, let's get to the sweet part...we are finally bringing Ella Grace HOME! YAY!!!

 First up for pictures, her "going home outfit"

Leaving the hospital

Then, EG showed us just what an angel she is : ) I was a little worried about her first carseat ride because I know some babies hate the carseat, but she was perfect!

First time riding in her carseat

This picture is hilarious to me because her Daddy's driving is the only thing we ever "argue" about (I'm a slow, cautious driver...him, not so much)

Actually, he was driving slower than this until I said something, ha! And yes, we were on the interstate... Funny how a baby changes things : )

HOME with our baby girl

Our little family of THREE!

First meeting between EG and the dogs...I think it went well : )

First bath (well, at home)

She wasn't a big fan, ha!

Daddy gets me ready for bed for the first time : )

He is SO awesome with her! He has totally blown me away : )
