|Tanner, Lauren & Tyler having tummy time|
A few updates: Tyler was able to join Tanner & Lauren and come home on Thursday, September 13!
|Welcome Home, Tyler!|
|sibling snuggle time: Lauren, Tanner & Tyler|
|at Tyler's first doctor appointment|
|Tyler & Tanner settling in at home|
Tyler is 4# 11 oz
Lauren is 5# 10 oz
Tanner is 5# 15 oz
They are growing so big! I can't believe Tanner is almost 6 lbs, and Tyler is not far from 5 lbs!

And then there's our sweet Hannah....Who is still in the NICU! Ugh.
I have to admit, this is so hard for me having her there!!! With 3 infants and Jenna I can't just pick up and go visit the NICU anymore. I have gone some days without being able to see her at all, and let me tell you- this is awful to me! Even though I have 4 kids at home, my heart aches not having the fifth here, too. We miss you, Hannah and want you home SOON!!!!!

|Tyler cuddling with Hannah in her bed the other day: look how he is holding onto her arm! It's like he is saying, "Come home with us, sister!"|
|We love you and miss you, Hannah!|
Another good thing is that the doctors downloaded Hannah's monitor today, and it shows that she did not have any apneas or bradycardias in the last 5 days so she can go home monitor free! This is good news, as we still have Lauren's monitor and it is a pain. Hopefully Lauren can kick that thing to the curb soon, too! Then we will have 4 wireless, healthy, strong and loveable babies at home! Praise Jesus!
Life will continue to get crazy, and sleep will become more rare. Thankfully we have had lots of friends and family helping out... the helps at the midnight feeds have been the best (especially when Andy has been working!). We are getting creative and planning on Hannah coming home soon.

Hopefully I will post again soon with news that Hannah is home. We really appreciate all the continued prayers and support. We feel so honored and humbled to be the recipients of so many prayers. When I started this blog, I had no idea people would follow our story like they do! I am floored and amazed and humbled, and at the same time forgetful and sleepy and ditzy all rolled into one. Life is crazy. Life is good. And God continues to provide abundantly!
