Another night of little to no sleep. I am surprised at how well my body/mind are holding up. I've felt frustrated by the nurses during my hospital stay, because many of them say different things to me about breastfeeding, and it is hard to get a grasp on what is normal and what is not. I cried today more than yesterday, and I think it is because I am so tired--also, I just want to go home at this point. Samuel is doing great. Landon is a big help.

By 5pm, we were set to go home, but Samuel was hungry, so I fed him before we left. Then, Samuel messed his diaper, then wet on his outfit, so we were delayed until about 5:30 before we could leave.

It was a happy memory when we brought Samuel home. At the hospital, the lady that wheeled me out to the car took a small video tape of the three of us. Samuel slept all the way home. When we got home, there was the futon with the blankets still in place from the first night I labored, the nail polish on the coffee table from the night I painted my toenails so I would look my best for delivery, the pregnancy books laying beside my bed from the hours I spent reading about pregnancy & childbirth, and the nursery with all the love and care that had been put into it for our baby. And, now he was here--with pregnancy behind me and motherhood ahead of me, I felt happy and fulfilled. --Karli
