Leah's surgery- what great friends to entertain me for 7 hours!

Mr. Levi is home! He surprised everyone by passing up Allison. He's tipping the scales at a whopping 3 lbs. 15oz. , but I'm sure he'll be growing quickly since he chugs his 2 oz bottles. He seems a little unsure of his new environment, but we'll win him over :) His first night was quite rough and I broke down and just "slept" on the floor in the babies room. Since then it has gotten a little better each night. My parents and I have developed a shift system- we each take a 4 hour shift between 9pm and 9am where one person is responsible for responding to crying babies and we all help with the night feedings. It's working really well so far and it's nice to get a break to sleep and know someone else is getting up.
We also had a mini Perkins family reunion this weekend with Dave's parents, brothers + girlfriends, and aunt and uncle all visiting. Dave, my parents, and I enjoyed missing out on some feedings and diaper changes :) And Uncle Phil and Aunt Lee brought me lots of goodies from my favorite Arkansas bakery! You know you're a sweetaholic when your hospital room was filled with cupcakes and candy instead of flowers and out of state visitors bring baked goods.
