How has it been since we got home? Crowded but not to bad. Life was paused while we were in the hospital. It certainly was different for everyone. Thursday night we all came home. My parents, my boys, my husband, my DAUGHTER and I all arrived back at our [still] under construction cape cod at the same time. What a wreck.
As I was feeling good, feeling secure and ready to go the nurse gave me some more medicine to help with the pain of moving a lot and 3 bouncy boys about to jump on me. I appreciated the thought. What I did not appreciate was she gave me the wrong medicine. She gave me much to strong medicine. I was tired, then high, then dizzy, then so so sick. Upon my arrival to see my boys I had not seen in 4 days there first glimpse of mom was her looking really bad running from them to throw up. Nice. Not at all how I had wanted it. I did not want to feel like that I did not want to scare my kids it was all so wrong.
My parrents did not want to stay long. They were happy to drop off the boys and meet Faith but they wanted to go and Jay left to the grocery store.
So I had to push through this. I did know it would end it just had to wear off and get out of my system. That gave me peace to look foward to.
I went to see all my kids. Introduce them to each other and it went so well. They all smiled over her and loved her instantly.
Smiley really took to her. He just held her in his arms, you could not get her away.
I want that, mine. He would say about her. Although now he does say her name.
He loves having a baby around, we all do. And she sleeps through the night. She sleeps a lot. But I am not complaining.
Life has not stopped. Our only way to adjust to life plus baby is to jump back into life pre baby. So that is what we have done.
We have continued work on the the house. The walls have now been primed.
We are deciding on a paint color.
The kids have returned to school and there activities. I have resumed my taxi service and volunteering. Some people ask how can we do it? How can we just bounce back a week later. Well we have no choice. But we are having, for lack of a better word, fun. It is hard, my body does ache, the boys have watched more tv and played more wii this week than any other time, but life goes on and we are all enjoying Faith. I should add we enjoy showing her off around town too.
okay they have had to dress themselves lately too
