Little Miss Sophie FINALLY got to come home and join her brothers and sister. We are extremely excited to have our family together at home! She came home on Saturday, February 13. We were a little worried about her at first because she was not taking her feedings well at home. We have tried to keep her back in her bedroom where it is quiet. Hopefully we will soon be able to let her interact more with her siblings, but for now the most important thing is for her to take her feedings and gain weight! We definitely do not want her to end up back in the hospital. The home health nurse will be here today to check her over and weigh her. Please pray for a good weight gain!

My aunt Kris and cousin Toni came down to help out, which was a huge blessing! It would have been a huge disaster if they wouldn't have been here to help with the babies!
Friday, February 19 was Sophie's first doctor visit. She had to have a check up with the pediatrician after leaving the NICU. The doctor thought she looked well, however, she hadn't gained any weight since Wednesday when the home health nurse weighed her. The doctor said not to worry since the scales might not be accurate. We'll have to see how she does today using the same scale as Wednesday.

We now have 3 month olds as well! Where in the world has the time gone? As I sit in the living room watching all 4 babies enjoy tummy time with each other, I can't believe that they are this old already. It makes me sad to think of how fast they are growing, but extremely thankful when I think of how far we have come. They are all developing these cute little personalities, and I feel so lucky to be at home with them. Although our days are crazy, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Well, I better get going. Lot's to do and so little time to do it in! I will post again soon (I hope).
