When we got home from the hospital, we had lots of special people waiting on us! Mums, Gran, Lane, and the Armstrongs were there, and Paw and Kathy had driven in from Brady/San Angelo to meet Ellis! My grandpa isn't a big traveling fan, so it meant a lot to me that he made the drive to come meet his newest great-granddaughter.
We tried hard for a great-grandkid picture, but it just wasn't in the cards! Lane was bribed to smile, Ellis was fast asleep, and Evin was not in the mood!
Kathy and Ellis. Kathy crocheted the beautiful pink blanket that Ellis is wrapped in. She made a blue one for Lane and it was his coming home blanket, so we continued the tradition!
Gran and her babies!
Evin was pretty intrigued by baby Ellis! She kept wanting to touch her.
That little pointer finger kills me!!
Changed positions and got a cute pic! I can't wait for these girls to grow a little and become best friends!
Kori and Mitch had to head back to Mansfield that afternoon for work the next day, and Gran needed to get back to her pup, so she hitched a ride back with them. I love this picture of her with her firstborn and her first granddaughter!
Ellis was looking a little yellow to me, and had a moderate jaundice level when we left the hospital rather than a low level, so we decided to get her as much direct sunlight as possible. Lane had jaundice and had to be under the bili lights for a few days after we got home, and I was paranoid we would have to go back to the hospital for treatment. (Luckily, her levels ended up being fine the next day at her first checkup. More on that in the following posts!) I found a nice, sunny area in the extra bedroom where the pack n' play was already set up, and put her in there for a little tanning. :)
Lane was so sweet to keep checking in on his sis!
Sleeping on Mums's legs. Loves to sleep with her arms up.
Lane started in with the baby-talk as soon as Ellis got home and he hasn't stopped yet! His favorite thing to say is "Hey girl!" in this sweet, high voice. He told me his nickname for her is "girl." Love it!
Little lady getting a diaper change.
Looking so sweet in her first footed jammies. Ready for her first night of sleep at home!

All snuggled up and ready for bed! We were so happy to have our sweet girl home!
