it seems like the first few days home from the hospital are the longest.
the hours creep by, and yet are somehow filled with things like nursing sessions, burping, spitting up, laundry, and changing sweet little diapers.
if you're lucky perhaps you get a nap or a snack here or there.
i like to think someday when my sister's family look back at pictures like these they'll somehow forget how tired we were when we took them; only that they were the sweet beginning hours of a new addition to a sweet family.
"look how much he loves me!" mimi said, right before i snapped this shot.
