(at the NICU), we confirm rmb Ethan”. While cradling Ethan waiting at the hospital drop-off for the hubbs, this long-haired lady in tee & shorts dashes out of a van twds me and exclaims, “Ethan, you’re going home!” I was a bit bewildered but then realized she was one of his nurses in her off-duty attire!
We strapped him into the car seat & then headed off to my in-laws who were beside themselves with joy waiting for him. This first car ride is also his first encounter being in the sun & he kept squinting & turning away, so cute. Going thru tunnels were his fave
Upon arrival at the in-laws, it was all cuddle & cooing over him as Kwee & I had lunch hehe …
Then we came home to my mum who kept asking us to inform her earlier about our arrival so she cld open the door to welcome Ethan.
