Noah got to go home on Wednesday and the girls joined us on Thursday! It's been an exciting past few days. Sleep for Mom and Dad is slim but the babies are doing great. Cora is very laid back, smiles a lot, and eats more than Evelynn and Noah. She definitely proves that she may be small but she is mighty. Evelynn likes to cuddle and look around at everything. Noah loves his pacifier and can get his arms out of his swaddle faster than anyone. All of them want the security of being swaddled but they insist on having their hands out and by their face. Cora and Evelynn have found their thumbs but have only sucked on them for a short time until they are reconnected with their pacifier.
Today Caina came home today and now our new family is all under one roof. Our schedule is full Evelynn and Noah on 10:00, 2:00, and 6:00 feedings around the clock. Cora's schedule is around the clock on the hours of 11:00, 3:00, and 7:00. We are trying to become more efficient but for now we try to catch sleep whenever we can between their schedules.
Thank you so much for everyone's best wishes and prayers. We're busy but very blessed and very thankful for all of the great care we received in the NICU and from our families. Thank you to everyone for understanding that we are a bit sleep deprived, excited, and enjoying our three babies and new adventure into parenthood.
