First night with Eli, sans nurses
You know who did awesome on Eli's first night home? Eli. You know who else did awesome? Diana. You know who didn't do awesome? Me.
We threw the little guy into the co-sleeper at 9 and decided the family should turn in early. Grover positioned himself neatly between us (Grover is doing great with Eli. Adjusting to being #2 very well. Good boy). Di and Eli went to sleep knowing they'd meet eachother every 3 or so hours to bond over breastmilk.
When the lights went out, I began a paranoid fit that would make Nixon proud. Let's take you through just part of last night: Eli makes a slight sigh, Rick leaps out of bed and peers into the co-sleeper, Eli makes a "mew" noise, Rick leaps out of bed and peers into the co-sleeper, Eli farts, Rick leaps out of bed and peers into the co-sleeper...
The saddest part is I had to take a nap today while Diana played with Eli. I'm awesome.
