welcome home elias!

Well our stay in the hospital was over yesterday (Sunday)! It was a little bit of a mini "vacation" for Joel and I (mainly me...getting waited on hand and foot...served every meal in's the life). But we were really excited to get home and see Corbin and Gma Cathy and settle in! Elias seems so tiny when he is in his car seat! He left the hospital weighing 7 lbs 2 oz....3 pounds lighter than Corbin was!!!
Good-bye hospital....Hello home, sweet, home!
Corbin is so excited to have a little brother! We weren't sure how he would react, but he was so excited when he woke up from his nap and Elias was in his crib! Corbin calls him "e i" or "bebe"!!!
Corbin was very insistent that he hold his little brother! He was pretty gentle at first, but didn't want to have anyone take him out of his arms!
Brothers hanging out in their chairs!!!
The first night went so well! Corbin slept all the way through the night (even when Elias threw a fit during a diaper change)!!! Elias did really well too! He just woke up for feedings! Hopefully this continues!!
