WOW...alot has happened!

So Chris and I go up to the hospital for our normal morning feeding with the girls. The Doctor comes in and says "well, you are rooming in with Madelyn tonight." Shocked because the nurse had said the night before that it would be a while. He comes back in five minutes later and says "well lets go ahead and try Kinley too!!!" We had to leave pretty much right then to get everything together and be back by four. They had to pass their Car Seat test first. They did fine and slept the entire time. They look so tiny in their big carseats. Kinley in front, Madelyn in back. It was crazy, we thought we for sure had a few more days. So we roomed in at the NICU that night in the smallest room ever. (not made for families with twins)

Chris holding both girls for first time!

The night went great. The girls took all their bottles and did amazing! The doctor came in and said well you are going home today with BOTH GIRLS! Kinley does have some drainage in her right ear and is on drops. It is looking much better already.

(horrible picture of me but oh well)

The girls are doing wonderful at home and we are loving having everyone under the same roof. Chris had to work at four in the morning at the buck so I had the 2 and 5 feeding by myself. I have to say thanks to the Gerwers for giving me lots of practice when I was their night nanny. It was not too bad though. It's wonderful having the girls home and it actually feels like they are our babies now.

Too Cute! That brings back sooooo many memories. We had to do carseat tests, and we had to room infor 2 nights, and we have several pictures of our girls snuggled up in the same boppy. I hope everything is going great. It is much better being at home and not having to say goodbye to them everyday. I still need your address when you get a chance to e-mail me brown020704@yahoo.com

By the way, Congratulations!

This post brought tears to my eyes...our girls are just a week away from their first birthday and seeing the two of them in that boppy brings back so many sweet (sleepy) memories! You give those babies lots of hugs and kisses and I hope you enjoy their tiny-ness! :) Oh, and I remember doing the night feeding by myself too....

Liz, I am so excited for you! Your babies are precious and I am so happy they are doing great! Sounds like you are doing fabulous too! Good job, Mommy! Wish you lived in Abilene so I could come hold them.. :(

Stephanie said...

YEAH!!! How exciting to have them both home!!
They are just adorable...love the family pic!!!

Praise God....what blessings!!!

Kelly said...

Yay that they're home!!! Congratulations!! When they get a little older and they have a good suck, if you're still using bottles, I highly recommend Podees. It's hands free feeding and really made my life so much easier to keep them on the same schedule. Anyway, congrats again on your beautiful family!!

We are long time fans of Suz and her Quads! We have twenty-one month old twin girls who were also in the NICU. It is so awesome when they finally come home after having the empty house waiting for them! Enjoy these first few days!!!!

-They look too cute in their car seats!
