I am poaching my neighbor's wifi right now, so this will be brief. But so sweet! We are home, and our baby is amazing. She is the sweetest, most smiling thing, and she seems happier and more comfortable every day. The first few days she didn't seem to do or think much, she couldn't really hold her head up or sit up at all, and she smiled about once a day. After three days, she suddenly woke up, looked up at us gazing down at her yet again and still, and she smiled back (oh yes, I cried and cried at that). From that point on, she has been just more amazing and developing at a crazy rate -- she seems a month ahead of herself a week ago! She sat up for almost five seconds by herself yesterday, she slept for 6.5 hours in a row last night, and we don't have to hold her every second any more -- in fact, she is batting toys around on her playmat right now as I write.
My heart is almost sore from how much it feels and loves. I have so, so much to write but instead must eat my bagel and then we're off to the pediatrician. I will try to send photos and a better update soon.
