Life at home!

Ok... I really am going to try and blog at least once a week from now on. Life has just been beyond crazy the last few months and when I did have time to blog, I would have rather done NOTHING! I know I said I would catch everyone up on the girls' NICU time but I'm going to skip that. They were in the NICU one day short of 4 weeks which is so good! They say to expect them to come home on the due date and they came home a month before that!! We have now been home for 1 week and it has been so fun and challenging. It is so nice to have them to ourselves. We get to do things how we want and when we want. Don't get me wrong... I appreciate the nurses and know they were just doing their job but I got a little sick of them telling me when I could hold MY babies! We have already had to go to the Dr. (outside of weight checks) because Ansley was spitting up after every feeding. Ansley hadn't gained any weight since our weight check so they weighed Kinley. She only gained 1 ounce. That really upset me because I want to feel like they are thriving at our home. Instead I felt like we took them from the NICU too soon. We then were sent to the hospital (don't they know we have had enough of that place?) to get an ultrasound on her belly. Everything looked fine and she was put on medicine for reflux. She has been doing so much better. We had to change to bottle feeding every time except twice a day and we have another weight check tomorrow. Hopefully they will have gained at least 3 oz. Also, while we are at the Dr., he will check Kinley's belly. She is the one that had that scare in the NICU because her belly was getting so big and low and behold it is pretty huge again. So, prayers that miss Kinley will be fine. Now I will leave you with their one month pics!!!
