I'm home! Good to be home. Here in NYC you don't have a private room after delivery unless you pay a lot of extra money, we chose to opt out of that, therefore I had a roommate. I won't get into the details but it was a very interesting and heartbreaking experience. I am so thankful for a supportive, loving, caring husband. It's easy to forget how good we have it till you are reminded by others you are around.
Anyway, onto the babies. I've really enjoyed feeding and bonding with Elliott. He is doing so well. Today when I went down he was wearing a shirt and his hat was off. We had our first glance at his hair, he is so beautiful.
I got to hold Lillie for the first time today and it was special. It's hard to bond with her right now because she is always in her incubator and connected to so many tubes, but I was grateful for the chance to love on her for a few minutes. Tonight when we went back to feed Elliott we checked in on Lillie and she was out so the nurse could change the sheets in her bed and her hat was off, so we got a quick picture of her with her hair showing too. She has a head full! She is a beautiful little girl as well, we are anxious for her to make some progress so we can love on her as much as we get to with Elliott right now.Jack is doing wonderful. Having a good time with Hannah. After church tonight Freddy, Hannah and Jack came by the hospital so I could spend a few minutes with Jack today. He was excited to see me till he spotted these round looking, balloon shaped seats for little kids around a table. He quickly was distracted from Mommy. Then he spotted the snack and coke machine and was entertained by pushing buttons. A few minutes later he crawled up in his stroller, Freddy asked where he was going and he said, "I want to go to Starbucks!" We're pretty sure this was his first real complete sentence!For now I'll spend the majority of my days at the hospital so I can feed Elliott, and Lillie as she is able, every 3 hours. Thanks for your prayers, the Lord is sustaining us and giving us a great joy and hope.
