The Boys Meet Addison

A little over 24 hours old, Will went and picked the boys up yesterday, and brought them to the hospital so they could finally meet their little sister they have been asking about for months.

Last kiss before they went to Grandma's house!

I am still in the hospital for another day and a half. I will be released sometime on Wednesday probably late morning or early afternoon. I miss the boys like crazy, and I am so glad I brought my laptop with me, or I would be insanely bored...

Addison sleeps and nurses amazingly, I am praying she is this easy going once we are home and into our routine as a family, it would make things, especially recovery easy.

Oh, and TV totally sucks. If it wasn't for all the news in the past 24 hours, I may have died from boredom!

Ok, here's my word to the wise or maybe just a mom-tip, but I found it invaluable. I have several kids and learned to get the new baby used to all the noise & bedlam going on!!
Let your two youngest do whatever they're going to do and put the baby down while it's going on. Running, playing, shouting, door slamming, whatever the case may be! It will be tricky at first. But you will be so happy in a few months when you realize that child can sleep through anything. Soooo much less stressful than shushing everyone in the house, trying to make it tomblike so the baby can sleep... constantly being mad or angry at them for being rowdy....anxious & uptight all the time while the baby is trying to sleep, that's no way to live!
Congrats on your sweet girl.

It looks like your boys LOVE their new baby sister! Cute photos:) I was thinking you might be getting a little bored by now... because I was only in the hospital for 2 1/2 days and I got bored! But you are coming home TOMORROW! Yay! *give Addison a kiss for me*

ps. I told you that I had a feeling she was going to be a perfect baby;)
