Sweet Homecoming!

Good News!  We thought we might go in today and pick up our little Lauren to go home, but we had a great surprise:  Tanner came home too!

Both are home now after a long day getting circumcised (Tanner) and going through all the discharge things.  Thankfully I called in my amazing family troops and they quickly did last minute things to get us all set... good grief, I was not ready for one, let alone 2!!!

Gotta get bottles prepared for the overnight shifts and then try to get some sleep myself, I will end with picture highlights from the day.  Praise Jesus for 2 healthy babies, and 2 more to come!!

Welcome Home, Lauren & Tanner!

Lauren making a face

Don't you love their button hats?

Very proud big sis

It is so much nicer having them home than at the hospital!

Mastering the side-lying, NICU style preemie bottle feed!

"How cool to have them home!"

Lauren had to go home on a monitor for apneas, but Tanner was thankfully cordless
A very happy mommy & daddy

Now about those other 2...!

Miss you!  Hope to see you soon, Hannah!

Miss you too, Tyler!  Get bigger & stronger for us, ok?

First night sleeping at home!  They shared the bassinet!
Good night!  Hope we get a little sleep :-)


  1. YAY!! Congrats to both of you! Hopefully brother and sister won't be too far behind!

  2. Hooray for going home! hope the night went well. They are getting so big!!!

  3. Woo Hoo! Woo Hoo! Congratulations! The picture of you pushing them across the bridge made me cry. I can only imagine how many times you have walked across the bridge thinking of that moment. We will pray for more homecomings soon and coordinated feeding times. Congratulations again!

  4. Wow! Congratulations! They are just precious...all of them. Let the fun begin! Thanks for sharing, a friend in East Texas,Pam.

  5. Oh my goodness that is so awesome. Not one but two. And it looks like no monitors or equipment, that is wonderful. I am so happy for you guys right now. Precious. =D
