Back Home

Hello from Maid Marian Court!! Yup, that's right, we made it home....again. It has been a super busy day for Daddy, Mimi and me. It all started with Daddy and Mimi coming to the RCNIC and then these people from The Enquirer came to take pictures of us and my nurse, Cayse. It turns out that there are a lot of totally awesome people that follow the blog and one of them is an old friend of Daddy's who works for the paper. She has followed our story for some time now and decided to write a column on the great job my nurses have done and how lucky we are to have access to such awesome health care. Daddy got to read the article before it is going to print for this Sunday's paper and he says that, Jeanette (the author), did a fantastic job. Unfortunately, they could only talk about two of my nurses because of how many words are allowed. If you are one of my nurses, Daddy wanted me to send out a BIG THANKS and to make sure you know how much you mean to us. You are the best!! So, if you are a Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky-ite, go get the paper this coming Sunday and check out the article about my superstar nurses.

Along with the reporter, came the paparazzi. I am not kidding, this lady had two cameras and they were going off like crazy. Not to mention, they were bigger than I am. So, after they took a zillion-billion photos, the nurses started doing my final assessments to make sure I could go home. Well, you read where I am blogging this from so you know how it went. Luckily, there wasn't much waiting from the time they gave us the "green light" and the time we were walked out of the hospital. I just made sure that they fed me and burped me and we were on our way.

I love car rides!! Well, I love sleeping in cars. They are sooo relaxing. We got home around 2pm and settled in. It is soo nice here. Daddy and Mimi even took me for a short walk but the sidewalks were pretty bumpy and I wasn't a big fan of that. I think Daddy will be using the Bjorn for a lot of our walks. I can't wait to use that thing because it is just like kangarooing. Daddy straps on the vest lookin' thingy and then places me in and secures it and off we go.

This evening was cool too. Grandma and Poppy came by to spend time with me. It's really great being here. Tomorrow will be our first full day at home and I have doctor's appointment later on this week. Nothing crazy, just a follow up appointment with my pediatrician. That's about it for the day. I gotta go play with Daddy and Mimi before I eat and go to bed. Goodnight everybody.

Much Love, Lily

  3. Little Lily,
    What a perfect day for your car ride home! You and your daddy must be sooooooo happy!

    Everyone knows just how special you are, but to be a STAR at such a young age is awesome. (I can't wait to read the article featuring you and your nurses in Sunday's paper.)

    Little Lily, keep on drinking that "good stuff" so you'll continue to "blossom".

    Prayers and Hugs,
    (Aunt Cyndi's Mom)

  4. Oh how exciting Lily. Now stay home this time!!! Well at least till you're 18! Sean praying for you from Kiev. Can't wait to see Lily in Kids' Club. Love you both.

  5. Very awesome news. What a perfect day for a bumpy stroller ride. Just wait for the bike rides.

    And it is very generous of Lily to help save the newspaper least for one Sunday.

  6. YAY Lily!! So happy you are home sweet home with your daddy... I know your mommy is smiling and happy.

    Can't wait to read the article in Sunday's paper.. I must say that you are very photogenic, no wonder they took so many pictures of you!

  7. Yay Lily! I was so excited to read that you got to go home! Try not to make your daddy too tired. I have 3 little girls and their daddy just spoiles them rotten and i can already tell your daddy will do the same :-)

  8. Wishing you both many happy days and nights filled with sweet dreams!

  9. Lily,
    I hope you know that I have been praying for you and your daddy every night since you were born. When you get older I can tell you so mnay silly stories about your mom and what a great teacher she was.
    I walked in the March of Dimes walk on Sunday and there was a little girl there who is 6 now and she was born at 29 weeks just like you. Maybe someday you can be the Ambassador for the March and show them what a little miracle you are!!! Enjoy your homecoming and take care of your dad.

  10. YEAH!! We are so happy for you two! We are praying for you and wishing you the best! We love you! Take care!! xoxo
