In the hospital

Because there were so many births, there was zero space and everyone had to share rooms. It ended up being fine; however, nothing prepares you for how loud it is or how bright everything is. Thankfully, I've never stayed over in a hospital before, but I was pretty surprised at how difficult it would be to sleep. It also didn't help that it was 90+ degrees outside and the hospital is over 100 years old. I did manage to make myself at home and took a nice, long shower while Tyler had some 1:1 time with Logan. I then got into comfy PJs I brought and treated myself to a face mask, which was just the best feeling ever - call me crazy, but it felt amazing! We spent the day snuggling our little guy and just enjoying the quality time together (see below for a bunch of photos).

I ended up putting together this list of things I found extremely helpful during labor and post-delivery as well as the first few days at home - feel free to share with whomever. I have a few friends giving birth this fall and felt like I needed to pay it forward with what I learned and benefited me as I had a friend do something similar for me :)
 I'm pretty sure this was around 4am...I look delirious!
