Seriously?

Sometimes so many bad things happen in a row it starts being kind of funny. And then you get rear ended just days before you finally get to bring your first baby home. Let's just think about the latter part.

I mean, I suppose I've been a mom since I got pregnant. And then more officially at special moments like childbirth, the first diaper change, the first time I got to hold Finley . . . blah blah blah. But I've always felt like I'm not quite a mom until I actually bring my baby home and lose weeks of sleep feeding him in the middle of the night. At the very least I feel like I don't know if I'm going to be even a halfway decent mom until I know I can do this impossibly hard part.

So I'm flipping out a little bit since I have no idea what car I'm bringing Finley home in, and the doctor says that'll be probably Saturday, which I'm hearing as sometime between Saturday and Tuesday. We'll sleep over with him at the hospital tomorrow night, and then pray like mad we all make it through this thing.

Oh, you will handle the sleepless nights like a pro. You don't go through all that you've been through and then be sad to wake up with your baby and nurse.

I really really REALLY hope he gets to come home with you soon!! And good luck on the car situation :)

Good luck!! I think the transition will be AMAZING, and you'll be even more in love with your little man than you already are because you get to have him all to yourself without anyone monitoring or constantly checking in. Just you guys and him. Ah! I'm sort of jealous!! Those first maybe 4 or 5 days with Douglas were rough, but in a spectacularly rewarding way. Never so happy to be sleepless.
