My new favorite word

Is discharge. After 10 long days of Harper’s life being in the NICU, we finally heard the blessed words we had been waiting to hear. The doctor finally said she passed all of her tests and she could come home with us.


I was so overcome with joy and thanks. I knew that our prayers, and the many other kind supporters’ prayers were being answered. Our little Harper was going to be all ours!


She is so tiny in her car seat. I still can’t believe I am the mother to such a teeny baby! (Check out the size of Dave’s hands in comparison!)


It was a lot of fun to bring her home and to have my family come over with our dog, Sadie and my brother, Payton who hadn’t  met Harper yet because of strict age limits for NICU visitors. It was a really special moment to be a part of. Our first night brought all sorts of “adventures” including a dog crying nonstop, a panicked 3 am phone call to a nurse relative, and Dave sleeping on the floor in the nursery. This whole “mom” gig is going to be quite the journey!
