After 3 days of hospital food and a lot of newborn care instruction, Jerry and I got to leave the hospital and take little Levi to his new home. Not too long after we arrived back, Grandma Mona came in to stay with us. Aunt Lauren and Uncle TJ have come by and brought us dinners. Levi has been a happy and content baby and we are crossing our fingers that it lasts. Today we went to his first pediatrician appointment. He weighed in at 8lbs 8oz, so he has already gained his birth weight back. What an overachiever.

Thoughts: How being in the hospital is like being on a long airplane flight.
1. Right when you fall asleep, people wake you up for annoying reasons. "We have now turned on the seatbelt sign" or "I am here to take your blood pressure".
2. People bring you food on a little tray at regular intervals. For some reason this looks like normal food, however, it tastes like a close imitation of the real thing.
3. Time passes, but the scenery doesn't.
