Quick Up Date on Addison

We just returned home from the hospital. Addison is doing pretty well but it looks like they want to keep her until Monday so tomorrow I will be spending most of the day with her while Michael Anne gets some much needed home time. It has been fun for her to be with Grandma & Grandpa Church but she has also missed being home and we have missed her so much too.
Addison has a good appetite but I noticed tonight that she was snorting and wheezing a little as well as sneezing a bunch, hopefuly it is just some residual surgery swelling or just a little stuffiness no doubt from me. It is no fun giving birth with a cold!
Well, I need to go put my feet up. My ankles have been somewhat swollen today and it's kind of uncomfortable.
I have more pictures to put up but I'm too tired to do that today so maybe tomorrow or the next day or maybe the next day...
Good night, Julie

Addison is so cute! She looks so much like her Mama! We are so glad to hear things are going well (Gma and Gpa Johnson kept us posted). Can't believe Michael Anne watched the delivery and didn't freak out. What a brave kid - it even freaks me out a little! It will be nice to have the family home on Monday! Good luck with everything. We love you tons!

Oh PS... You look fantastic! I am so jealous of your cheek bones! My face gets way to fat to even see mine!

Yay! I'm glad she gets to come home! You both look wonderful. Isn't it a relief to not be prego anymore?

Thanks so much for coming last week - I'm so glad I got to see you for a bit.

Thanks you guys,
I just got a call from the hospital and they have decided to discharge her today!!!! So we will drop Michael Anne off at Grandma & Grandpa's and then head up to get her. It will take a few hours because they want to teach us infant CPR and do a car seat test in which they have her sit in the car seat for an extended period of time just to make sure her vitals remain stable in that position. So we should have her home by this evening. I am so excited! I've got to go shower. Luv ya, Julie

Congrats to you guys! She is so Church!! Just like Michael Anne. Well, Jules, that's pretty cool to have two girls who look so much like you! I'm glad the surgery went well and hopefully all of you will rest easy from now on (well, maybe not for a few months until Addi's sleeping through the night, but one can always dream...)

Julie-Congrats on a beautiful baby. I am glad she is doing great. Two of my kids have experienced the NICU so I can understand how that experience can be. I love the new look of your blog as well. I hope you enjoy full-time motherhood and all that comes with it..the tiring moments as well as the joyful ones.
