Emmy came home yesterday!!! Julia and I are both very glad that she came home, even if it means much less sleep for us. It’s kind of crazy, because I’m starting to feel a bit more like a dad – I’ve changed diapers without any help in the middle of the night, and I’m becoming an expert blanket-swaddler. I don’t think that even compares to what Julia’s done for her, though, which includes (among countless other things) sleeping (well, mostly fretting about being totally in charge of a NICU baby) in a very uncomfortable and undecorated room at the hospital. I’d gladly give up sleep for our beautiful baby!
The doctors say she should be off her oxygen and medication within about two weeks, but in the meantime she’s doing great and looking cuter every day.
More pictures are coming, I promise!
