Yep, you read the title right! After 10 days in the NICU, the girls are ready to come home. Both are in their open cribs & have done very well over all. Sofia is up to 4lb 12oz & Gabriella is up to 4lb 9oz. We are very proud of them! Check out the pics of our cutie girls sleeping away after a great feeding w/ Todd & I.
Hopefully our son will be coming home by Tuesday. He is finally going up in his bottle feedings. Today he took 4 bottles. Tomorrow will be 5, Saturday 6 if all goes well, Sunday 8 as well as Monday. If he can stay on this schedule, he will come home Tuesday. If he veers off the schedule of increases, he is only prolonging his stay at the NICU all on his own. Here he is right after a tube feeding.
This is one of him when his NG tube was out to be switched. He wasn't too happy!
Here I am w/ Gabriella.
I don't know that we are all ready yet but who is ever ready to bring home a baby, much less 3? I have to say that our nurses at Women's Hospital of Texas have been THE MOST AMAZING NURSES a mom & dad could ask for! Every time we go, we are greeted w/ a big smile by everyone in there. They make it easier to walk in that door & spend time in the NICU which can sometimes be a depressing place to be. We have had nothing but outstanding, sweet, caring nurses. THANK YOU SO MUCH! If anyone has an idea of how we can thank them, I would appreciate you leaving me a comment. Our children would not have done as well w/o their love & care.
I think that is about it for now. I'm exhausted but too excited to go to sleep!
