Home Sweet Home
Yay! After a stop at Dairy Queen (yummmm... 5 days of hospital food created some cravings) we arrived home yesterday around 4pm. Elynor slept contentedly in her car seat the entire trip - even through the terrible Lake Shore Drive pot holes and some squeaky breaks. Thanks to the tremendous support of our in-home housekeeper/nurse/au pair, Grandma Cochrane, we are slowly getting into a groove of this new thing called parenting.
Many thanks to all who have called and emailed over the past several days. Your encouraging words and well wishes mean so much - especially in the moments when we feel clueless about what we're doing. It would be difficult to get back to everyone in a timely manner, so please don't be offended if a personal reply does not come until October. :) Over the next few days we hope to savor the down time getting to know Elynor, introduce her to Ally, and establish a routine/get some rest. We're thinking we'll be up for some visitors starting late in the week - so be in touch then!
