Family of 4 + a dog

WOW time has past so quickly since I last blogged. SO much has happened.

*Quit my job at 28 weeks. My little man never moved off my cervix. Talk about PRESSURE!
*Ended up on hospital bedrest at 28 weeks. Yep the day after I quit my job. No nesting at home or getting a pedicure.
*5 1/2 weeks of bedrest... I know, I should have blogged but my brain was mush the whole time.
*33 1/2 weeks I woke up drunk off ambien at 1:20 in the morning with wet sheets. My water had broken. I was so drunk I almost didn't call Grumps BUT I at least changed my facebook status! at 3:54 and 3:55 am my little loves were born.
*Welcome to the world Grace and Stephen. Grace stayed in the NICU for 3 weeks. Stephen just arrived home after a month on Friday.

NOW we are a family of 4 with a dog who can't get enough licks.

Wow!! I've been wondering how you've been doing. Your story sounds so much like mine (29 weeks premature labor, born at 31 weeks). You sure seem more upbeat than I did.

Congratulations on making it through ... the struggle and journey, the bedrest, the NICU. Enjoy this time with your beautiful children, and expect no more of yourself than taking good care of those sweet little babies (and yourself, too!).
