Going home!

Here are some pictures of us getting ready to go home with our little Avery. I still couldn't walk well (because of the swelling of pushing for so long, and an episiotomy), and I felt so incredibly inadequate yet excited to be taking our baby home with us. Zane and I were going to be taking care of a real tiny human being all by ourselves!!! CRAZY! I sat with Avery in the back of the car and felt like all drivers were ridiculously irresponsible and everyone was driving way too fast. I'm sure I felt the same way as every first time parent has.

I remember having these very deep emotional feelings thinking that such a pure little being had come to Zane and I, and that we were responsible for her survival and nurture. It was an incredibly humbling experience, and I was filled with gratitude, humility, and love.

Avery's balloons at the hospital. We had some neat visitors!

Whazzup world! Here I come!

Are we ready to do this?

We made it! (Despite all the crazy drivers and us driving at 30 mph). Welcome home Avery Sofia!!!
