Day 5 - Our first day by ourselves (kind of)

I'm so glad to be home. Little Elvis is doing great. I was worried that as soon as we got home he would start crying constantly and not stop. And I wouldn't have the nurse call button there to help me.

Yes he's cried, but so far it's been for things I can handle -- feeding, diaper changing, attention.

I did change his diaper 3 times in 30 minutes. Bob went to pick up my father and I was cuddling the baby. He had gas and I felt the need to change his diaper each time.

He HATES having that diaper changed.

He loves his grandpa though. My dad, who is not that big on technology, went out on Tuesday and bought a 1 gigabyte video stick for his digital camera so he'd be ready to take as many pictures of Little Elvis as he wanted.

He also had him a T-shirt made that says "I love my grandpa."

I know some new parents like to be completely by themselves in the beginning, but I'm so thrilled to have someone here to help me.

And my father is thrilled to finally be able to meet his grandbaby, who by the way is the best looking baby he's ever seen -- even prettier than I was.

Did you guys want to be by yourselves when you got home, or did you welcome the help and companionship?

I needed companionship! Of course, there's such a thing as too much of anything LOL

Sounds like Elvis & grandpa are getting along great. It's really good to have SOMEONE more experienced around even just to say "Hey, good job" :)
