Welcome home Henry!

It's hard to believe but little Henry will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. Wow! It sounds so cliche but seriously where has the time gone? Well I guess driving to the hospital every day and now trying to figure out who is awake and who can nap eats up most of our time lately. But enough about me, let me share some pictures from the past few days and the homecoming of Henry.

Apparently our little guy likes to squirm around and loses his pacifier so they taped it to a burp cloth and he was as happy as can be.

Henry's uncle got in one last visit before he would be heading back home in Missouri. It was really great that he was able to get to see Henry twice while he was here visiting all things considered. Unforunately, I wasn't able to see Henry that day (or the next 2 days) because I had a wonderful case of Bronchitis... this was such a crazy emotional roller coaster ride. But thankfully The Wifey took some pictures when she visited.

Also, our good friend Monica was able to meet The Wifey at the hospital so she wasn't alone while she visited Henry.

She has been such an amazing friend to The Wifey during this whole crazy pregnancy and then the trip to the NICU.

Finally, on September 22nd we got the news we had been hoping for and were told that we would be able to bring Henry home the following day, making it a fun 10 days that we had been waiting to bring our little man home. Needless to say we were rather excited!

You can't hear it, but Heny is screaming Go Steelers!

I can't really describe how much I looked forward to finally being able to take the "taking home baby" picture. We were so close. Now all we had to do was get him in the car and he was actually ours!!

The Wifey is thinking to herself, "Hurry up before they say we can't take him!"

The rest of the pictures are of our little man at home with us. We were finally all together as a family in our house which was truly a home.

Troy Polamalu Jersey, Terrible Towel, Gray Sweatpants - definitely one of the family

P.S. I love swaddle blankets almost as much as Henry does.
