We brought Lily home the next day at 8pm. She was wrapped up in her pink baby gap snowsuit, this is when my dad got his first hold of her. She looks so tiny in his arms.
I was so glad to be home and so glad to have my parents around, as I was in a lot of pain because of stitches and still didn't have much movement in my arm. Having my parents there also meant I got chance to have some sleep while they got their chance to have loads of cuddles.
Day two and three was family visiting day. We had Chris's parents visit, First was his dad and Lorraine come and then his mum and sister and children the next. I think this would be the only days I would have a visitor but not get dressed. Day three was quite emotional for me, apparently this could be because your milk is coming in. Well firstly I bust into tears because I couldn't reach my cup of tea that was brought to me and placed on the bedside table. Then later because seeing Lily have her photograph taken with her cousins was a special moment. I looked over and thought to myself, thats my family and then started to well up. (you can actually see me in the background of this second photograph with my hand to my mouth as I tried to stop myself)
Here are a few more photographs from that week.
