After a pretty quick hospital stay (thank goodness), though it felt like forever, it was finally time to go home! We packed our bags back up, but this time with a new addition. Little baby Blake! Somehow we ended up having twice as many things leaving as we did when we got there, but I didn’t mind. Why? Because it meant Blake was here! Once everything was packed up we called for the nurse. She went over all the take home paperwork and care, then we waited for transport! They were a little backed up, so we took pictures to kill the time, because well–you can never have too many pictures of your sweet baby girl! After transport arrived they wheeled Blake and I down stairs while Marcus trailed behind with our cart full of stuff. Then we waited in the lobby for him to get the car, he was a trooper and super helpful (thanks husband!).
After loading the car up and buckling Blake into her carseat it was time to hit the road home. I sat in the back because I’m a typical new Mom 😉 and wanted to make sure she was okay on her first car ride! She slept the entire ride, even through our drive through stop for a quick lunch! Marcus drove the safest I have ever seen him drive. Seriously y’all, he is a pretty safe driver, but this was adorable! He went over bumps super slow, took corners very carefully, it was really cute, he loves his baby girl! Once we got home, my parents and little sister were there. They had stocked our fridge for us, set things up and were ready to help us get settled in! It was amazing and they were so helpful! I’ve never felt so loved and spoiled!
The first night was a little rough, I was sore and we were just trying to figure things out–but my Mom really helped us out and stepped up. Bringing Blake home was simply amazing though. I remember thinking, wait, she’s ours? We get to keep her?! Guess what, she’s still here, so I think it’s safe to say we get to keep her forever!!!! 🙂
