We're Home!

After a long night of pumping and running milk up to Molly she was finally released to us. We just had to convince her the drinking was better with us! She came down yesterday (Thursday) morning with the stipulation that we would spend the day at the hospital making sure she ate well and kept up on feedings. No problem! We love the hospital and were in no hurry to go home! The boys spent the day with Grandma Nancy and Dan and I spent the day with tons of doctor visits, lactation consults, etc. I did manage to sneak in a nap though! :) We finally left at nearly 7 PM and got everyone settled.

We are so thankful Molly was released and able to come home with us. She is such a great little girl, so easy going. Both were up the majority of the night enjoy a multitude of feedings. They are both great little nursers and seem to really enjoy mommy time. The boys are doing great and have so much energy! It's amazing how big they seem now with the girls home!

Currently we have shut our doors to visitors so we can have some bonding time with Molly and kind of get settled. Dan, however, would like to state that food DOES allow some exceptions! :) I'll try and update again later when we are a little more rested and a little less overwhelmed.

even though Kaitlyn has much more hair are the girls identical? I wish I could cook you some food but I think it would be really gross in the mail LOL!

Thanks for all the comments guys! Everything seems to be going really well except for total exhaustion, which is expected.

The girls are definitely fraternal. I agree though, put a little weight on Molly and she and Kaitlyn look a lot alike. We'll have to see how much they change in the next couple weeks.

Thanks again guys!!!!
