First Night Home
We got home midafternoon from the hospital. It was a wonderful time with Elizabeth and Sarah finally getting to hold the babies. At the hospital the rules were that only the older kids could hold them.
We jumped into our every three hour feeding routine and everybody pitched in. So far I’ve been able to make enough milk that none of the babies have had to have any formula. Breast-feeding is coming slowly as they are still quite young. They will be three weeks old tomorrow but truly only 37 weeks gestational age. They all have an appointment with our doctor tomorrow afternoon. So that will be our first outing. Our general practitioner Dr. Dibble will be seeing the babies.
Our first night was tiresome but expected. We are just all so glad to be home together. Rhea is wanting the babies in our bedroom and us all to be together. However I’m not sure how long that will last being that he will need a lot more sleep in order to work outside the home! We will see what the next few nights brings!
After dinner and the last early evening feeding we all had a sweet time of family worship and prayer before heading to bed.
