That night we were on our own. We tucked them in per Nana Scott's directions and hoped for the best. We were up about 3 times. Which isn't bad. Since they are preemies they sleep a lot. We actually have to wake them to feed. Don't worry, our time will come.
Good night babies!!
The next morning...knock, knock, knock! Grandma Lamon arrived! All were smiling. My mom was able to stay with us for 3 nights. What a help! We had someone to cook us meals, help with feedings, and wash the large amount of bottles that seem to pile up everywhere in our house. We continued our routine of feeding, burping, pooping, and sleeping. It was a great 4 days. Mom left this week on Wednesday morning. It didn't phase me that morning that she was going to be gone, but later that day I wished that she was still here. When will these hormones settle down? Grandma Lamon will be back on Sunday for another 3 nights. Unfortunately, Grandma's arrival also marks Brett's departure to New Jersey for some work business. He is going back to work next week and his family will miss him. I imagine there will be lots of phone calls, texts, and picture mail. It is amazing how much the boys have even changed in one weeks time. We want to make sure that we take it all in so at least we can look back and say, "wow, I am so glad that I took the time to watch them sleep in my arms." No regrets!
Grandma Lamon we are waiting for your return!
