Baby Update

I know it has been awhile, but I wanted to give a quick update on the girls and why I have been absent once again...THE GIRLS ARE OUT OF THE NICU!

Friday, January 23rd, we were told we could do the overnight stay with Avery and take her home on Saturday, January 24th.  That night was scary and exciting all at once.

We stayed in the hospital once again in the postpartum floor.  But this time we had this sweet bundle of joy with us.  I don't think we slept much that night as we stirred at every sound Avery made.  But we made it through the night and she gained weight, so Saturday around noon, we took home Baby B, aka Avery.  Avery was in the NICU for 26 days.

That first night at home with Avery was better than the hospital stay sleep wise, but every night gets better and better.  Having Avery home first gave us a chance to get settled in, see how feedings and pumping at home would go, and give us a chance to see what it was like being parents for the first time (really feel like parents and not part time parents).

But that wouldn't last too long because Baby A, aka Sutton, came home on Sunday around noon herself.  Sutton was in the NICU for 27 days.

So now we have two babies at home and life is chaotic, but so sweet.  We are getting used to those awful 2 am feedings, but there is nothing better in this world than those sweet baby girls.  I am in love beyond anything I have ever imagined and I finally feel like a true FULL TIME mommy.

And so they are the reason I am once again slacking in the blogging department.  But I did finish their birth story today, so get ready for Part 1 tomorrow and Part 2 on Wednesday.

Also, I hope to write their one month update as they turned one month on January 29th!  So stay tuned.


  1. Yay congrats on getting those babies home safe and sound!
