We're all home!

We brought Emerson home today! Luckily her discharge went much quicker than Eli's which is good considering Eli wasn't allowed back into the NICU so Marcus had to stay with him in the waiting room. I cannot even explain how happy I am to be done with the hospital. Between the bedrest and the babies stay I'm so over that place.

In her huge carseat...


We survived our first day with Eli without too many problems. Although we hadn't bought a monitor yet so Marcus slept in the nursery on a mattress because he was too worried to leave Eli alone unattached to any monitors. Marcus quickly learned that babies are not quiet sleepers and each grunt, squeak etc woke him up. Eli ate really well each time we fed him and then went back to sleep, and Marcus bless him did all but one of the overnight feedings and allowed me to sleep (Well as much I can since I still have to get up and pump). Eli has nursed a couple of times and seemed to get full but he's still not consistent. Sometimes he's willing to try and sometimes he's not. So far today Emerson is having none of it, but they're still little and there's time to work on that.

We'll see how tonight goes with both of them.
