Coming Home!!

James


John David was sound asleep, so I didn't get a picture of him last night. Have I already mentioned that John David is awake all day and James is usually awake mostly at night!!! AHHHHH!

Boys are scheduled to come home today at 2:00. Last night they were doing really great. They both passed their car seat test, they are eating up to 60cc now, they have not required any oxygen in 7 days, and temperatures have been great while in their crib. SO~~~~~ we finally get to bring these miracle babies HOME! Of course, until they are snuggled in their seats in our van riding down Hwy 280, I am not jumping up and down quite yet!

Please keep the boys in your prayers today as we plan to leave with them this afternoon. Thank you all for your love and support and prayers. My heart is so full right now. Please pray for me too, I am extremely nervous about being a mommy to these boys around the clock and also to my three precious girls. I am going to Wal-Mart today to stock up on protein energy bars and vanilla coffee. I am soon to be making a volunteer list of helpers! Lea Smith, you are first...Love to all~

I am so excited for all of you! In some ways coming home and being home is easier... you do not have the hassle of going back and forth to the hospital, and you can stay in PJs all day if you have too!

Please let me know if I can help you with anything... I really mean it! Email me and I will give you my phone #, call me if you need something or have twin boy questions :)

Blessings!
