There's No Place Like Home

One night down, the rest of their lives to go!

We had a very uneventful time bringing the girls home. Jason and I had a quick refresher course in infant CPR and infant choking, the doctors rounded one last time on them, and then we were allowed to go. Here they are waiting on Daddy to bring the car around.

We were home by 12:15. We promptly fed the girls lunch, made lunch for ourselves, and then we all took naps. The rest of the afternoon and evening went smoothly. We fed them, played, napped some more, bathed them, and put them to bed.

Evelyn had a wonderful night. She seems to understand that when it is dark outside, it is time to sleep. She didn't wake up much at all--not even for meals. She would open one eye just a crack, close it, and then scarf down her bottle. After a good night's sleep, she was ready to play about 8:00 this morning.

The rest of us didn't have the same easy night. Jessica's reflux was bothering her, so she didn't sleep much, and Jason and I took turns being up with her. Hopefully tonight will be a better night for her.

We see the pediatrician tomorrow. We need to leave about the time that the girls get their afternoon snack, so we're going to try to feed them a little early. We'll see how that goes and see if we can actually get two babies packed up and to an appointment on time!

Hey, I know you!

Nap time.


  1. God blesses us in many ways and Jason is pictured here taking a nap with two of those blessings. May your two precious girls bring you the happiness that my three girls did me.

    Pretty girls, adorning a blanket that was used in another generation of babies I believe.


  2. They are so big and chunky! Y'all sure know how to grow babies. I hope everything continues to run smoothly. Miss seeing you at work!

  3. Yay!!! so precious!!
    Let us know if there is anything we can do for you all!
    Can't wait to meet the lil ones!

  4. Congratulations!!! I know you both must be very excited. Now the fun begins. I hope you don't have to many sleepless nights but just remember it is all worth it.
