The other thing that we decided to do differently was to check out of the hospital the same day as long as everyone was ready to go. I knew I could rest at home better and that Petey would like to have us there sooner than later as well. Some of the nurses thought that we were crazy and some thought it was a great idea... I am happy that we did that- it is funny though that we sometimes had to stop and say- oh yeah, she IS just a day old- not 2 or 3 like some babies are when they come home. I had the best support that I could have asked for- just one nurse who was great, Suzanne who just knows what to say and do and how to encourage and motivate and Garrick who does all of the above and relaxes me, backs me up and makes sure that we are all on the same page.
We are so THANKFUL to have a beautiful healthy family and are so greatful for all of our friend's and family's support, love, prayers, thoughts, toys for Pete, gifts for Emmy, food for us and TIME spent. It is more than we could think of or ask for.
Last weekend, we did the Warrior Waddle for WSU's homecoming. I thought that it was pretty appropriate that it was called a "waddle" instead of a run- Garrick pushed Petey and jogged with me. I had been having a lot of contractions that week, so we thought that was the thing we needed to get baby moving a little! The people at the race thought we were NUTS- but fun for running- we even got an article written about us in the Winona Daily News- oh- and my time was 29:10. Not too bad for 8.5 months pregnant!!

I have LOTS of friends right now who are pregnant and having babies- some are "out" and some aren't quite yet, but it is so fun to watch us all grow! The picture outside is my friend Jenny from SMU cc- she is due about 3 weeks after me and the other is my friend Bri who is due with TWINS in February!!

Every Friday Peter and I go to ECFE at one of the area elementary schools. All of the kids that are there are between 1 and 2.25- when Petey started he was one of the little kids, now he is one of the 'bigger' kids there. They have so much fun, the teachers are so great and it is so fun-he'll tell you why!
We go to the gym! There are slides, cars, balls and a trampoline!!
AND that is why Fridays are the BEST!!!
