Home Again, Home Again, Lickety Split...

We are finally home!

We were discharged yesterday evening, and spent our first entire night at home with Pippa. We were even able to be home for when she turned exactly one week old. It was very nice to sleep in our own bed, without interruptions by nurses, doctors, cleaners etc.

We had a pediatrician appointment today, and she's grown a 1/4 inch and is gaining back some of the weight she lost right after being born. So all in all, we're doing really well.

Once we catch back up on some sleep and have a few moments we will post some more photos.

(note: the title of this posting was requested by Emily-- she thinks it's the end of some Mother Goose Rhyme. If only we knew a librarian or two who could track it down for us...)

'home again, home again, jiggety jig.' Always ask your mother these things - :) ILY
 
I have to agree with your mother, I remember it as jiggety jig. That's because it rhymes with "To market, to market, to buy a fat pig!"
 
On my quest to find an answer, I asked Jeeves and Google to no avail! Though the Mother Goose rhyme comes up as 'jiggety-jog' (great job on that) the lickety-split version comes up all over the place, but I can't find the origin! We really do need a good librarian on this!

Glad to see all is well!
