And I finally got a shot of Eden with her eyes open! She looked so sweet. When Jamie phoned this morning, she told me that Eden was just lying in her arms looking up at her, as content as could be. Awwww....the mother/baby bonding!
And Noah was so thrilled that he could sit with his Mommy finally for a bit of a cuddle. But he was warned not to touch Mommy's tummy because it was still very sore. You can tell how happy he was to be with Mommy. When we got home last night, he had a meltdown from missing his Mommy and Daddy so much. He cried and cried and cried while I just held him and told him I understood. Finally, he settled down but I had to stay in bed with him until he eventually drifted off.
Today we're having a very low key day. I finally had a shower as he's now used to being here and I can trust him to be alone for 10 minutes without going out the front door. We made the bed, vacuumed, and threw in a load of laundry. Then we went to see the ducks at the slough near the grocery store. We picked up some juice, apples, and a treat for him (those mini Easter eggs) and then went across the street where I bought him a "big brother" present. He LOVES it - a Fire Chief truck that has a siren and says "All units Code 4109" "Okay that. We're on the way." He's been playing with it all afternoon.
Much as I love my precious Noah, he is a go-getter - never stops for a minute. I am out of practise and forgot how busy mothers are. And this old back can only take so much. Thank goodness Jaclyn's coming over in a while to take him out on his bike before we have sushi for dinner. Being a gramma is awesome, though.
