Today we finally got confirmation of Lea's homecoming! This Friday, Lain, Lea and myself will "room in" the hospital overnight. Then on Saturday, we'll FINALLY be taking our baby girl home!
I cannot explain to you the relief, excitement and pure joy that is running through me right now. I can't remember ever feeling like this. Just picturing Lea lying in her own crib, with not a single wire attached to her is making me smile as I type this. Now, we will experience the things people sometimes warn you about when having a baby:
"You can't just pick up and go anymore... You can't go out to eat... or see a movie... It's a twenty four hour job..."
All of these things once sounded so scary and binding to me. Now, there's nothing I want more. I look forward to spending my days and nights at home with my beautiful family. It doesn't get better than that. Life is REALLY about to start now, and I couldn't be more ready!
"Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4: 6-7
