Since it was Brian's first week of school, he had to teach his morning class each day this week. So he would go to school and get back to the hospital around noon each day. So I went up in the mornings to visit and let Kristen eat, shower, and rest.
I'm just lucky that I stay home and got to see Reese so much! I held her as much as I could and still didn't get enough of her. She was wide awake each day from about 9-11 and then took a nice long nap. She didn't really cry or fuss - she was pretty content to just be held. So that is what I did!

It was quite an eyeopener to take care of a newborn and have a toddler around. Harper did good at the hospital-watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, ate cheerios, sat with Krissy. But when she started pulling cords, it was time to go. Yeesh. The next one might have to wait...

The McCool's brought Grayson to the hospital on day 2 after naptime. This time, there weren't as many people around and he was very excited to meet Reese. He showed her his toys, gave her kisses, and loved on her bunches. Then he played bouncy ball with his dad for about an hour, because he is a boy after all.
