Welcome Home, Henry

After days of recouping in a hospital bed and getting our baby to eat, Henry and I are happy and at home in our own place. It makes us both calmer, happier and healthier. I loved having the help of the nurses at the hospital as I recouped my body and got Henry’s belly all cleaned out from mucus build up, yet I am so glad to be at home and introducing our baby boy to our home.

Daddy kept up his work and his Daddy duties during our 4 day stay at the hospital. He is such a great multi-tasker. It makes my heart explode to see Randall love this boy as much as he does. His smile is larger and his heart is softer, as though he needed any improvement. I love Henry’s Daddy so much more after these past few days. This sweet man labored for 21 hours with me, without a break. I pushed for 3.5 hours with him right there, sweating and crying with me. After almost 7 years of marriage, I love him in a totally new way after this life changing experience.

Our baby boy is perfect to me. This is him in his coming home outfit. It was a gown but his Daddy said it was a dress. Funny man, he is. He was precious in it. The ride home was surreal and exciting.

Henry and his Daddy are best buds already. I love having them in the floor of our Den under our Christmas tree. God has truly blessed me with these handsome boys. The hands on help is more than I ever expected. Julie always said Stephen was the best mom she ever knew, but I have to argue with her. Randall is the best mom I have ever meet.

Tonight I was talking on the phone to my cousin Sarah and I told her I looked like Shrek! No one could have ever prepared me for all this swelling and pain. Wow. Randall tells me how pretty I look, knowing he must be in awe at my “cankles” and tree trunk legs. I love how he tells me how proud he is of me right when I need to hear it. I had Mom and Julie bring my small maternity jeans to the hospital and I ended up wearing my large maternity jeans and they were tighter today than they were when I wore them into the hospital on Tuesday. For real, I am still not believing no one told me it was this insane afterwards. More power to you, Michelle Duggar.
Henry is now in his bed and is quite smitten with it. We are quite smitten with him and love having him snug as a bug in our house tonight. Thank you Lord, how could I ever ask for more.

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
