Colton Came Home

Colton came home today. it was bitter sweet leaving Kempton at the Nicu. But the nurses and Dr. said he will most likely come home on Sunday. We hope so, it would be perfect! I really wasn't sure how long Kemp would be in the NICU and i was thinking maybe another week or so. Hearing it would only be a few days after Colton made me feel a TON better.

Dulany met her (one) little brother for the first time today. She loves him already and is doing really well. She REALLY wanted to feed him a bottle so she finally got to do it and was "taking turns with daddy" Anytime Colton makes a noise she goes "oh colton is talking!" or anytime he moves his legs or arms she gets excited.

Anyways, so far so good. Colton is still so young that he sleeps the whole day and is barely awake. We're doing good on feedings so far (which  makes me nervous because im doing bottles twice in a row then trying breastfeeding followed by a bottle) and i want to just make sure he's getting enough. In the NICU anytime we try nursing we weigh him before and after to see how much he got from breast and then follow up with as many ml he needs in abottle and we dont get to do that at home!

Here are pictures from when we got home. We cant wait till Kemp can come join us and our little family can be all in one place and no more one hour drive to the hospital and one hour drive home everyday!

yay for having Colton home. Dulany looks like she will adjust great to being a big sister. I can just imagine how excited she will be when they are both home!
