She's Ours!

I still sit in amazement today that Cameron is here...safe, sound, healthy, and alive!  I keep expecting something bad to happen or someone to wake me up from this dream.

I just look at her, completely and totally fascinated with her, and then I just think to myself..."She's Ours!  She's really ours!"  We get to take her home, love on her, and watch her grow up.  And then there is always that part of me that gets sad, because Bailey is ours, but we don't get to do those things with her.

We survived our first night with Cameron in our room.  I was so tired today though that we sent her to the nursery here at the hospital just so I could get a little bit of sleep.  Between the exhaustion and the percocet, I was struggling to stay awake.

Cameron did pass her hearing test today after failing it yesterday, so she is good there!  We also had her pictures taken here at the hospital and ordered some of those.  I will be posting those once I get the information from a CD they will send with it (including copyright rights).  There were some really cute ones and I can't wait to share them!

Here are a few pictures from today...I laugh because Cameron works and works to bust her arms free when she is swaddled, and then once she gets them free....she gets mad because they get cold!  It's too cute!

This was after she got one arm free, but before she got mad because it got cold!

We think she is "Cute as a Button".  This onesie is actually one we had bought for Bailey.

Picture time with daddy!

She is adorable! I know exactly what you mean. I spend a lot of time staring at Bennett, so amazed he is ours and we get to watch him grow and thrive. Always remembering Bailey with you.

I cannot get over how cute she is!!

I know exactly what you mean about waiting for something bad to happen, or thinking you are going to wake up from a dream... cause I still think this way sometimes!

I'm so happy she is doing so well, and I hope your recovery is smooth and fast! I bet you are excited to take your little girl home...

aww she looks just like you Danae! So sweet. And wearing big sister's clothes. Mine did the same thing, fought the swaddling, only they seem to like the cold.

I am so glad that you have Cameron home and in your arms. She is so precious and beautiful! I love that she wrestles out of the swaddle only to get mad about being cold. How sweet! <3 <3 <3
