We have been home from the hospital for 5 days now and are getting adjusted to our new schedules. Sleep anyone?? Ty's mom was here until Friday and was SUCH a blessing to us. I think I only changed 3 diapers the entire time she was here! She would also help out at night when Colt was fussy and wanted to cuddle with someone. My mom came on Friday and has been cooking and cleaning up a storm! It's nice to have such wonderful women to help out and make sure Colt gets proper care and that I can recover without pushing myself too hard.
Colt is such a cutie pie (really, he is. I'm not just saying this as his mother) ... we enjoy watching all of his little faces and listening to his little voice. He doesn't cry very much, just when he needs something. The funniest thing to me was the first time I changed his poopy diaper and all of a sudden a little fountain of pee started spraying him in the face, soaking the changing table and his clothes. This has happened several times and I am trying to get better at covering this area of his body when changing diapers.
In other news, Ty's grandma, Meemaw, passed away on the 4th of July, the same day we came home from the hospital. She got to see pictures of Colt and listened to him crying over the phone before she passed. She was such a joyful woman and had a punny sense of humor which she always used to try to encourage others. Ty will be heading to Austin/Marble Falls on Friday for the memorial service. (He'll be at Grace on Sunday if any of you want to see him). Meem will be greatly missed!
