We went over yesterday around 10am and left with him around 2. Not too bad for working at hospital speed (i.e., quite slowly). It was cute to see him in street clothes after hanging out for 5 days in his little hospital-issued t-shirt. We put him in the one preemie outfit I had bought just in case. I was never expecting to actually need it! Even the newborn-sized clothes are much too big on him so we're going to have to get some preemie things pretty quickly.
The first day (well, half-day) was exhausting. I know it's an adjustment, but I just wasn't expecting to be so tired! It felt like as soon as I got him down from one feeding, he was crying again for the next one. He poops like a crazy man, too. I normally don't mind diaper changes but I feel so bad for his sore little pee-pee!
Josh took over around 10pm and I climbed into bed. I slept until 4am before coming back to switch shifts with him and it was the best sleep I have had in months. I guess I needed to be really exhausted. Man, it felt good.
Noah finally got to meet Eli, too. He was intrigued. He smiled a lot and kept asking if Eli came out of my belly.
I hear grunting noises. Better get some milk warming.
