The first day

Wow, only 24 hours as parents and we're total pros. Just kidding! We actually have a fleet of helpers here at the hospital so it makes it seem easy. We're going to be discharged soon, as both Evangeline and I are healthy. I think the reality of our new life will set in once we get her home and are on our own!

Lots of firsts: first feeding, first clothes, first bath, first poop and pee, first cuddle with mom and dad, and the list goes on!

As far as things for mom and dad go, we still haven't gotten much of the sleep we really wanted yet. I found that I was fairly obsessed with Evie last night so I couldn't stop looking at her to make sure she was OK. I'll probably be the same way tonight, but at least I'll have the comfort of my own bed.

Hope to have some more pictures up once we get home!

You guys are such good first-time parents. You have a blog about your baby and everything! We are so lame... We barely take our own pictures of our kids! We let our family do that. :) Maybe we'll get to a blog by number 5 or 6..... By the way, your baby is (well, I was going to say adorable, but that seems to be taken, so) perfect! I'm so excited to meet her!

Trust me, the desire to check on your baby and to just want to watch them doesn't go away. I still do it with Logan. I hope you get some rest soon.

Congratulations Matty and Nicole! Love the name and she is absolutely beautiful. I too still love to look at Caius when he is sleeping and to make sure he is still ok. Just remember later to sleep when the baby sleeps(even if it is during the day)!

Many prayers going your way as you reach a wonderful milestone in your lives! Again congrates!

God Bless,
Sarah C.
