It was a long day today. After getting Connor back from NICU yesterday and with his sister Kaitlyn in our room - we finally got settled in. Only then did we realize that it was time to go home tonight. We started getting ready around supper time, but waited till the 8pm feeding before calling for the nurse to give us the discharge paperwork (which we promptly lost) Only then did we realize that Mom had to have 2 shots too!
Anyway - by 9:30pm we were in the car for a quiet ride home. I guess our precious babies love a car ride - as they were quiet as can be. The car seats were lovingly installed by Dad earlier in the week - so we knew our precious cargo would be safe all the way home.
Oops! We forgot it was Halloween. Poppa turned on the house lights to welcome us home. That was sure nice - but then the doorbell started ringing with trick or treaters. Uh-oh - no candy at our house - so OFF went the house lights.
We had a chance to put the babies in their bassinets for a little while, After one more quick feeding, the babies went upstairs to spend their first night in their crib together. Fortunately Nanna and Poppa took the 2 middle of the night feedings, so Mom was able to recover from her surgery and rest, while Dad caught up on some much needed sleep too.
I'm a new mid-life Momma who is very proud of her babies. On this blog, I'm trying to keep up with all of the activities and goings on - both major and minor.
As the youngest of five children, there weren't many pictures of me growing up (then again, there wasn't digital photography either). So - I'm over-compensating and over-documenting! Hope Connor, Kate and Kylie enjoy reading this blog about their early years (once they learn to read)!
