We're Home! Thank you!

We're Home

All we can say is wow. It is the best gift in the world.

We were sent home yesterday afternoon after Aidan went thru a battery of tests to determine if he was all right to go. He had to do his PKU, meet the pediatrician again, check his feeding, do the 90 min. car seat test (to see if he can breathe when in the car seat), hearing test etc. Basically, our midwife tells us we just make our babies faster and smaller than other people (ha ha). So far all is well and we are learning to establish a feeding routine. He is still pretty small so opening his mouth really wide will need work. Lilly is enjoying her new baby brother and is learning to "pet" baby's hair and identify body parts.

Thank you
