Weekly Wrap-up: She's Home Now!

So, Baby Girl is home now, and we are absolutely loving having her here with us, rather than at the hospital!

She actually came home from the NICU last Tuesday, at 10 days old. Nine of those days were NICU days. This week, the Daddy went back to work and we started trying to figure out how to be a family of 5. So far so good! Sleeping is, predictably enough, unpredictable. That's life with a newborn, though, and it's getting better. We even got a little bit of school done this week. Just the basics, but with all that's been going on, I feel like getting the basics done is huge.
We spent a lot of time doing this:

And this:

Hero practiced his reading, writing, and math facts. And we started doing some Mango Japanese that we can get free through the local library. Just a little bit, but for where we're at, it's still an accomplishment. We're working our way back up to the full load of work. School. Cleaning. Stuff That Needs To Happen.

So wonderful to have her home and get back to life!

Yes. It *is* wonderful to have her at home where she belongs. I'm glad there was a NICU; I hate to contemplate what would have happened without that. But I'm really glad we're done with that part and have moved on to normal infant stuff. I'll take a little lack of sleep over scary x-rays and feeding tubes and such Any Day Of The Week.
