One angry dude in a tub! It must be true, boys just like to be dirty, because this one sure doesn't like to get clean. After we'd been home for a day or two we realized that Daniel hadn't had a bath since his first night in the hospital. This was even more noticeable since our sweet guy still had adhesive from his IV and monitors on his hands and chest. Sadness :( Time to scrub him down. And bath time wouldn't be complete without pictures! Enjoy. 

Looks like he might be giving in...

Nope. I call this one the "Screaming Bird." Thanks to GJ for the adorable owl towel.

What's that you say? This happens on a regular basis? Oh my. 

Homeward Bound

After a longer than expected stay at Williamson Memorial Hospital, we were finally headed home. Originally we thought we might be able to come home the Monday after little man was born, but after some disappointments we found out that we'd have to wait til Tuesday. Luckily my doctor worked it out so that I would be able to stay as long as Daniel so I would have to leave without him. You know there were some water works going on when I thought I might have to go home without my baby in my arms. :(

But finally Tuesday morning rolled around. Dave and I were so anxious to get Daniel and get out of dodge that I think we were both holding our breath a little all morning. We figured the way hospitals move we would be there until the late afternoon. But thankfully the NICU nurses came to our rescue again. By 11:30 am DOC was strapped into his carseat (non too happy about that I might add). One of our favorite nurses Ms. Amanda generously provided 3 packs of diapers and wipes from the hospital staff as a going away present for us and helped us out to the car. HOORAY!!!

After a quick stop at Chick-fil-A, we came home to this awesome welcome party! :)

It was a quiet first day home, but like any good mother, I harassed my children with a photo session. :) It's in my blood, I can't help myself. We ate our waffle fries and just enjoyed all being together under one roof. It's good to be home.

Our super helper, Grandma Dee! 

Strike a pose little man!

 Oh mom, enough pictures already!
