Friday was very bittersweet! We got to bring our sweet girl home from the hospital after 6 weeks of hoping and praying to have her home. However, it was so hard to leave our precious Henry behind. I have had a very hard time dealing with this, and having it finally here was tough. We apologize for not telling anyone about Harper's homecoming, but I have been in a state of disbelief, panic, and guilt. Friday, Mark and I kept asking the nurses if they REALLY were sure they wanted to let the two of us take her home. She's so tiny and I am constantly worried that I'm going to break her. Luckily, everything has been just fine and we have already had a visit from her Home Health nurse. I got a little panicked when the nurse mentioned that we should notify the fire department and 911 office that she was home. Of all the things I've checked off my list, I hadn't even thought of that! The past 24 hours all I have thought of is the movie Look Who's Talking. I can only imagine what this sweet girl must be thinking of her crazy parents. I'm sure if Mark and I had been filmed it would be an instant comedy. But, we are adjusting just fine. My mom has spent the weekend with Henry and she is constantly texting me pictures, so I haven't had the meltdown that Mark and I were just sure was coming. The weekend's not over yet! Below are some pictures from Friday and Harper's first night at home. Thank you all again for your many prayers, and sweet messages of encouragement. Mark and I are so grateful, and we just ask that you keep praying for our family during this transitional time. We won't feel complete until our sweet Henry is at home with us.
Saying goodbye to Henry. This was the first time they had been together since they were born.

So cute in my car seat.
Goodbye room 430!
She slept the entire ride home. She's such a good baby!
Walking in to her new home!
Gonna stay in mommy and daddy's bedroom until brother comes home!
I think she likes her new bed.
