I’m back! Well, kinda. We had a few big changes happen at our house last week. So forgive me if it takes a couple weeks before I’m fully back.
We had a big week last week. It all started months ago with a little announcement from Ellie.
After a few anxiety filled months Monday June 25th finally arrived.
We arrived at the Hospital around 6am. I held Ellie hand to help calm her nerves or maybe it was Ellie who held my hand to help calm my nerves.
Once we walked through those doors everything moved quickly. Next thing I knew I was laying in a bed having my IV hooked up. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate needles?
Ellie quickly saw I was upset and came over to hold my hand.
Seeing her face in the photo makes me so sad. You can see she wasn’t happy with the IV situation either.
After the IV was in and the tears were gone it was time for Ellie to head off to her first day of Kindergarten Summer Camp. I told you it was a big week for the Rock On Mommies household, but it was a really big week for one little girl. Ellie had a full week!
At 8:25am June 25th, 2012 we welcomed Zachery Andrew Levi Seid into the world. All 6lbs 6oz’s of him.
The rest of the morning is pretty much a blur. Phone’s dinging with Facebook messages, tweets, and text messages congratulating us on Zach. The days starts to clear up around 4 when Ellie arrived back at the hospital to meet Zach for the first time.
Then there was the Snooki moment…
Zach came out a little to pale for me so I requested we tan him up. Ok, fine, baby Zach was a little yellow so he needed to spend 24 hours on the bili blanket. Crazy how much technology has changed in 5 years! We did not have this blanket for Ellie. We stuck her under the natural light as much as possible and hoped her levels would come down.
So after a couple nights in the hospital it was time to head home. While Zach and I have been resting, Ellie and Daddy have been taking on the world. I told you it was a really big week for Ellie.
Daddy took off the training wheels!
With in 15 minutes of those wheels coming off Ellie was doing this…
Crazy! I couldn’t be more proud of Ellie and she handled all the changes in her life this week. She’s growing up to be such an amazing little person!
Again, thank you all for all well wishes! They really have meant so much to me!
