Welcome Home Kylee!

Kylee cam home today! Bret and I, along with Mr. Korbin and Baxlyn, went to pick her up this afternoon. When I walked into their room (Kylee and Brody were sharing a suite :) ) they were snuggled in so sweetly together, I hated to break them up. I had to fight back a few tears when leaving with Kylee and having to leave Brody behind. I just remind myself once again, he's here and I'm thankful for that and he will be coming home shortly. Good news though, Brody should be coming home Monday if things go according to plan! I was so afraid he was going to be stuck behind for a while, but he's not. He's now taking all 8 of his feedings by bottle and is currently on brady watch (he must go 5 days without dropping his heart rate where he has to be stimulated). YAY Brody and Kylee!
I know you are all curious to know how this week has gone with Bret and I having two of the babies home. It actually has not been that bad. We have them sleeping in pack-n-plays in our room for easy access during the night. Hardest part? getting up every three hours during the night to feed. They take their bottles in only 15 minutes or so, but for some reason Korbin feels the need to growl for an hour after he eats which keeps us up... fun :/
We will see how tonight goes, I know 3 will be more challenging!
Baxlyn and Korbin had their first appointment with their pediatrician Dr. Reyes on Wednesday. Baxlyn weighed in a 5lbs 8oz and Korbin 5lbs 12oz. The doctor was very impressed with their size for being 11 week early quads and was super proud of their double chins :)

Hangin' out in the jungle...

"Oh great... 2 sisters... what am I to do now!"

Not too much longer and our little (big) family will be complete!
Have a great weekend!

P.S. - any NICU nurses who might read this, please give Brody our love!

  5. YOU GUYS ARE DOING GREAT! The real fun is about to start :) Call me if you need me!! LOVE YOU! THEY LOOK GREAT!!

  6. God has been so gracious to our family. We are so looking forward to see what He has in store for these precious lives that He has so graciously given to us! My prayer is that God will be glorified through the testimony of these precious babies and their parents. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all who have lifted them up in prayer.

  7. Your babies are so precious. Thank you for sharing them with us blog readers (AKA blog stalkers). You guys are out numbered now with Miss K coming home. Paraying for Brody to come home soon.

  8. that last pic made me laugh of Korbin w/ his hands on his face and that caption you added. ;) Yay for 3 being home!
