{our birth story, part 2}

So, this is the easy part. Now we get to relax and enjoy our baby girl!

On our way to postpartum we ran into a group of excited crazy people! Ok, it was our parents, brother and best friends. :) Gathered in the hall, we had Hannah's first introduction to her family and friends :) When people love you so much they just can't wait to meet you, Hannah Lou!

On our first night in the hospital we had a bit of a scare when Hannah spit up amniotic fluid. She started choking, so the nurse flipped her over and started swatting her on the back HARD! Poor little baby threw up all over the floor, then turned blue and was rushed over to the nursery to have her tummy pumped. I was, needless to say..freaked out, but Nicolai went with her and all was well after that. Obviously, it was impossible for us to sleep after that, so the nurse took her back to the nursery for a few hours so we could rest and know someone was watching her.

Upon arriving home we were greeted by signs, streamers, balloons, flowers, food and gifts! It was a pretty great way to come back to the "real world"

{We are pretty much the happiest parents you could imagine!}
