Welcome Home Little Man
Camden is now 5 days old and has spent 2 whole nights in his new home. The first night, he wanted to stay up and take it all in. He slept and ate much better night # 2 and we hope that pattern continues. Today was my first day back to work, and everyone there was so great. They had congratulation signs over my desk, presents, and treats in the breakroom...it made coming back to work not so sad, but I still missed the heck out of my little family.
Today, mom (Misty), Hillary's mom (Margo), friend (Nell), and sister (Natalie) came over and kept Hill & Cam company. Mom drove them to the hospital for a check up to see how he was progressing with his feedings. We are proud to say that he is almost back to his original fighting weight of 7 lbs 10 oz. He has been an eating machine here lately, taking up a lot of Hillary's day. We don't seem to mind though, right now anyway. I even still enjoy getting up in the middle of the night to change his diaper just to hold him and calm him back down. I know, I know, give it another week and I'll let him sit in his own filth before draggin myslef out of bed. But for now, we couldn't be happier caring for him in anyway we can.
Yesterday was my first father's day and I was sooo proud to show off my new little boy. It was nice to be with family over the holiday. It is so fun to be a little family ourselves. We are also so glad to have wonderful friends in our life who have (and continue to) provide us with dinners and gifts. Thank you all SO MUCH. We definately feel loved. Well, more postings and pics to follow. I need to get with Camden's cousin Gage and uncle Adam and even get some videos on here too!!
