One year ago today Craig and I were a ball of nerves…we would finally be bringing our little mister home. We got ready early in hopes that we would get to bring Cohen home right away. When we arrived they said he had lost some weight he was 3lbs 14oz. We weren’t sure if they would let us bring him home so small. First he would have to pass his carseat test, which means he had to sit in his carseat for one hour without his monitors going off. We sat there for what seemed like the longest hour but he passed. We were able to check that off our list. He needed his eyes checked again so we were waiting on the eye doctor to come by. We waited for five hours for him to come see Cohen. April (our favorite nurse) tracked him down before he left. He came in to check Cohen’s eyes and all was good. April prepped us for discharge and the nerves just kept building. As she walked us out, Craig and I went down the elevator together and said…no monitors, no doctors, no nurses, no cafeteria food, IT IS JUST US (well and our family). We got in the car and fought to get the right angle on the carseat. Once it was achieved we started the trek home and I never took my eyes off of him. I wanted to make sure he was breathing and not choking. Craig kept checking to make sure we were okay and that he wasn’t going to fast. My parents were waiting for us when we got home, such a sigh of relief. They helped us get adjusted for our first night as a family of three. Once we were all settled in and they were able to hold Cohen for as long as they wanted they headed home, with the request “Please come check on us tomorrow”. They had no problem promising to do just that. Craig and I have never been so nervous to be on our own he was just so tiny and had so many quirks (still does). We have made it though…a solid year of the three of us being home as a happy family. This day is a milestone for our family. Craig and I are looking forward to celebrating this special day with Cohen. So many important days in our little misters life that we get to celebrate and thankful we get to be his parents! Happy Home-anniversary Son…the first of many!
