Home


I can't believe time has slipped by so fast. A year ago today we were celebrating having spent our first night as family all at home, all together. God is so amazing and has blessed us more than we ever dreamed possible. Lex came home first on September 1, 2006 after we roomed in for a night with him at the hospital. He was in the hospital for 2 weeks and 4 days. Brody and Collin were supposed to stay for a few more days or a week. The next morning we got a call at 8am saying they could come home that afternoon. They came home September 2, 2006 after 2 weeks and 5 days in the hospital. They were born at 32 weeks gestation and come home at 34 weeks, 4 days and 34 weeks, 5 days. They would not start bottle feeds until they hit the 34 week mark(babies do not have the suck, swallow, breath reflex until then), so it was pretty amazing that they came home that quickly after. They start with one bottle feed a day and then add the others on slowly. Our boys were starving, ha ha!
