A few hours after Grayson was born, we were able to have our own room with him. Our room was the last emergency birthing room and so if someone needed that room we had to get out. The whole first night, anytime a nurse would come to check Gray we would hop up thinking we had to leave. Ha! Luckily no one had to have that room and we stayed for 2 nights. I was happy to be able to hang the wreath I made for the door!

My good friend Rebecca came several times and was actually there during the c section! I was so glad for her because she took all the pictures and was just as excited as we were. She brought Tyler once and he said that Grayson was "so cute" and kissed his head. I love that kid.

After a few days we were able to go home. WE WERE READY!!
He has been a dream come true so far. We are still adjusting but I think it is going pretty well! The birth family has been so very supportive. I am so happy we are choosing to stay close!
The photographer came last Friday to take his newborn pictures and we got a sneak peak today! Eeeek! The only thing I wanted but forgot to tell her was a picture in the zebra chair! So I tried to take one today that ended with him peeing on the chair. So I cleaned it and let it dry so we could try again. This time I left his diaper on! (Plus I knew a poop was coming!) I think it turned out cute! Probably not as good as Rhonda but I am learning.
I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. We have just relaxed. I am glad to be home but ready to start back at church...maybe next week! Blessings!
