We're HOME!

...and by "we" I mean all 4 of us! We knew on Tuesday it was a possibility but we didn't want to get our hopes up. However, Wednesday afternoon 7/14/2010 (our 3rd wedding anniversary!) all 4 of us came home from the hospital as a family! The first night...sleep was minimal for Matt and I but the babies slept great! Last night there was more sleep had by all. It takes a little bit to get used to the babies grunts, squeaks, stretches, and squeals while sleeping (because of course the babies are sleeping in our room!). Getting up every 3 hours has been a bit of an adjustment but a welcome adjustment to have our babies home with us. This weekend we'll have the dogs come home from my parents house and then our family will be complete again. The babies are still immature and are still kind of tricky feeders but having Matt and I here to feed them consistently is very helpful to Oliver and Vivian. Matt has been off work since Wednesday and won't be going back until Monday after our pediatrician appointment. When we left Wednesday Oliver weighed 7 pounds even and Vivian weighed 4 pounds 12 ounces. Here are a few pictures.....
