Hoping for Tomorrow

Our fingers are crossed that Easton will be coming home tomorrow – maybe St. Patrick’s Day can be lucky for the non-Irish. He was initially scheduled to come home yesterday (Sunday) but he didn’t drink his entire Sunday morning bottle, so his 48 hours of bottle drinking was re-started. When I called this evening they had already taken out his feeding tube. Hopefully they didn't jinx us. Only a few more feedings to go. We will be so happy to have all three babies home, together!

Gianna has transitioned home really well! She reminds us a lot of her oldest sister – somewhat sassy and not nearly as patient as Ellery, but what would life be like if all of our girls were the same. I have to say that Quin has also done remarkably well! She just loves her sisters and tries to figure out who is who. They are the first thing she talks about when she wakes up in the morning, and the last people she wants to kiss goodnight. There has been some jealousy when we are holding the babies and don’t have an extra hand for her, but we expected that and know that it is completely age appropriate. We just hope that Easton’s arrival goes as smoothly as Ellery and Gianna’s.

Hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather! We were able to take all three girls for a walk yesterday and tonight. It is nice to get out of the house.

So glad to read you have 2 babies home with you and praying that Easton is coming home today. I am sure it will be such a relief and a wonderful feeling to have your whole family together at home. Will continue to pray for you all.
