Bringing Camden Home

We spent one night in the hospital and the next morning let everyone (doctors, nurses) know that we wanted to go home that day. 

 Our last nurse kept telling us she didn't feel like she was even our nurse because there was nothing we needed. Help with the baby? No. Pain medicine? No. Questions? No. The most we saw her was the last couple hours of her shift while she was trying to get everything ready for us to go home because she knew we wanted to get out of there ASAP and she figured it'd only take longer if she didn't get us out before shift change. As soon as 5:11 pm rolled around she came in and did all Camden's 24 hour tests and started getting the paperwork done for us to be released.

We came home from the hospital on Monday night around 8:00 pm with a new baby brother, 30 hours after we had left the kids with my visiting teacher  I wasn't sure at all how Micah was going to react to me having a baby. He likes babies, but would he like Mommy having a baby? 

Micah was super excited when he first saw the baby. He kept running around laughing like it was Christmas or something and trying to grab at Camden. At first Micah really wanted to be touching Camden's face and carry Camden around like a baby doll, obviously a no-no. He has since calmed down a lot and just likes to pat Camden's head every chance he gets. There's been a couple times when I have Camden that Micah seems to want my attention, but mostly he just loves seeing his little brother.

 Julia was full of awkward questions when we got home from the hospital like why did we have to go to the hospital to get the baby out and why is mommy's tummy still so big. She has had no problem adjusting to having a new baby around and loves asks to see Camden all the time too.
