Yeah...we finally got out of the hospital! I was released to go pretty early, but we had to wait on the pediatrician to come in and release Luke. Finally...at 5:00 we got to go home. I was worried about our first night, especially after a c-section, but I hope all nights are like last night. If so, I have the perfect baby! I put Luke to bed around 9:00 and knew that he would be ready for his next feeding at 11:00 (he had ate around 7:30). I had to wake him up to feed him and change his diaper....I put him back down and he went right back to sleep until his 3:00 feeding. At his 3:00 feeding, his Grandpa said it was "his shift"! He got Luke out of his cradle and took him in to change his diaper...which was dirty!...and then fed him. He is one proud Grandpa. I just sat there and talked to my dad, while I made sure he remembered to burp Luke (and that he heard the burp!). We put him back to bed and he slept until he was ready to eat around 6:30. He never cried the whole night!! Let's hope it happens again tonight! Here are a few more pics...
