We are so so so lucky that my dad could come into town to take care of the rugrats while baby metta made her entrance. I have no idea how we would have survived without him. We spent all day wednesday, thursday, and part of friday at the hospital and it was so nice to not be stressed about the boys at home.
Gramps brought them to the hospital to visit miss metta thursday morning. Zeb came in with such curiosity. He looked all around until he saw her and then walked right over . He was really excited and wanted to hold her immediately. Ike, on the other hand, was a little apprehensive. He smiled for this picture but then wanted nothing to do with her.
Check out Zeb's smile.
Home has been really pretty nice.
Zeb has been reading to Ike lately and now says he'll let metta listen, too. Luckily Ike is pretty fast to follow Zeb's example in everything and seems to be accepting metta more and more.
We got home in the afternoon and Kent had to go back to work at seven. I felt so bad for him- he was still so exhausted!! I was too- but I still have my dad here to help with the boys!
Miss metta did really well her first night. She gave me a four hour stretch (and I had to wake her up at the four hour mark)- and then three more hours here and there. She looks to be a great sleeper like her brothers were. And Kent finished nights this weekend so he'll be around at night to rock her back to sleep after I feed her. I'm so glad that he loves babies.
