A few more pictures

Well we are home! I am so grateful that I wasn't in the hospital for 10 days this time. I wish I could have brought home some of the nurses to help me out now.... they were so great. I am still really sore and tired. Bennett loves eli but I don't think he knows that it is HIS baby brother. Whenever he sees Eli he says oooh so cute baby hayden or maybri. I think we need to have a little get together and have all three babies there then maybe he will get it. Kenidee has not been home, she had a sleep over at grandma's last night and is just enjoying being with her best buddy(Rebecca) and her grandma shauna.
When we left the hospital he weighed 7 pounds 10 oz. Last night was our first night home and Eli was a hungry boy. He was awake about every hour and a half ready to eat. He did go one 3 hour stretch, whew thank you Eli. The nurses in the nursery told me that he was a night owl and sure enough he sure is. Right now he is sleeping and has been asleep for about 3 hours. So we will see how that goes.
I am so thankful for my family and how much they have sacrificed to help me the last few weeks. My mom has been watching the kids all day and Rebecca comes and stays with them at night. Rebecca came last night to stay with me and Bennett so I didn't have to worry and do more then I should.

 Family of 5!
 Such a proud big sister. Every morning(before eli was born)she would kiss my belly and tell me how much she already loved her baby brother.
 New big Brother! He loves his little brother.
