Saying goodbye

Yesterday morning my parents headed back to Wisconsin after being with us for almost one month.for those of you who know me, you know I am a pretty emotional person without the hormone shift that goes along with pregnancy, so you can only imagine how emotional it was for me to say goodbye to them especially with me being a huge ball of emotions right now.

I have always had a great relationship with my parents (something I hope Whitney can say about us someday...) and it was such a blessing to have them here with us during this stressful time. Their love and support through this all can not be put into words. It just goes to show you never stop being a parent. It is always hard to say goodbye but this day was especially difficult.

Whitney has begun to find her lungs, letting out more and more squeaks which are sounding more like cries. They are still cute but I'm sure in a few days they will lose their luster. She is still being a really good, patient baby. Today Andy and I were out running errands for a few hours after my doctor appt. And she was so content and basically slept the entire time. She continues stay wide awake late into the evening and usually won't fall asleep until 1am.

I will post more pictures tomorrow as I'm on the iPad right now and also give an update as to how her Doctor appointment goes. But for now, just one more Thank You to my parents for always being there for us, for being so patient and loving and just lending a listening ear. We love you guys!
