Good morning!! The bears love their new brother – they made a special hospital trip with Grammie Buzz for the occasion!
I miss you all so much. I miss regular blogging and it feels really weird to go to bed without posting! I have SO MUCH I want to share and no time to sit down and write! Maze is keeping us very busy, but I’m sure we’ll get in a more regular pattern soon : ) My parents are here and are a tremendous help with all the household things so Matt and I can focus on taking care of the baby and resting.
I want to go back in time for a bit and share some of the meals I had while in the hospital! I was famished after labor and delivery and pretty much not eating and throwing everything up. The hospital food tasted SO GOOD though and although we had other snacks (like GH bread) to munch on, I was very excited when my trays arrived : ) I shared 25% or so with Matt and he also had some salads and meals from the cafeteria that were pretty tasty.
Day 1 breakfast and lunch: eggs, toast, milk, banana and then the cod and rice meal.
Dinner that night was meatloaf and mashed potatoes, which I wolfed down so fast I don’t remember eating them! For some reason 2% milk tastes like liquid gold to me.
Breakfast the next morning I got to order – I chose waffles and oatmeal and yogurt (hungry when I ordered!) I probably only ate about 60% of this tray and shared the rest with Matt, but it was fun to taste everything.
He dolled up my waffles and oatmeal for me : ) (Peanut butter from home)
Day 2 lunch was a pork chop, but I opted for the alternative hummus sandwich and tomato soup instead. I wanted something a little lighter than a dinner entrée for lunch.
My dinner came at 5pm, and although we had plans for a pizza party after, I ate some of it as a snack.
Chicken and rice soup, a biscuit, salad and fruit.
My parents brought in some Christian’s pizza and Karen arrived home from NYC in time for our party!
We said cheers with a little pumpkin beer!!! [Can you tell I burst all the blood vessels in my eyes!?]
Maze said “y’all are being too loud! I’m trying to sleep!”
Great Harvest cookies for dessert : )
Day 3’s breakfast was by far the best – a giant fresh-made pancake which I topped with some butter and syrup! Plus oatmeal (that Matt had) and hot tea, milk and a banana.
Baby breakfast was some delicious milk ; )
After breakfast, it was time to start thinking about going home!
We dressed him in his finest and brought in the carseat. His hat is from Baby GAP that we picked out as his first clothing item after we found out he was a boy. And the onesie was handmade by KERF reader Rachel!!
And on the most beautiful fall day you could ever imagine, we went home a family of 3!
