Caden's Homecoming

Yesterday (Sunday June 5th) Caden was released from the hospital. Our first baby to come home... OH MY... are we ready???
Well we were as ready as we were going to be... the more time they spent in the hospital, the more things we found to add to our list of things to get done before they came home. Boy was that exhausting, lol!
We got all kinds of info and all kinds of goodies to bring home along with Caden, but the most interesting thing was getting him fitted in his carseat and loaded into the car... and then of course, getting him out and bringing him into the house to meet Haddie & Eason (the pups.)
Haddie is absolutely obsessed with him!!! She doesn't even want Donna or I to pick him up or take him to another room. She's getting a little better today, but she doesn't want Eason anywhere near Caden. We are making sure to let them both see the baby when we pick him up to change him or feed him.

Our first night with Caden went good, he sleeps beautifully and makes the cutest little noises while he sleeps which were so nice for Donna & I, we didn't spend the whole night watching to make sure he was breathing. We were up every 3 hours to pump & feed him.

Today he had his first appointment with the pediatrician. The first thing we learned is that it takes a whole lot longer to get ready with a baby, I an only imagine how long it's going to take with 3, lol...
The pediatrician thought he was doing great and that he did wonderful in the NICU. She said he was a strong and smart "29 weaker" :) He also weighed in today at 6 pounds, I can't believe how fast he is growing!!!

I have some video of Caden leaving the hospital and coming home and the pups reaction to him, I will upload it as soon as I figure out how to make them all one video on the computer... they run together on our camcorder but not when I upload them???

Well Caden is finishing his bottle now so it's time to get some sleep while he sleeps.........
