We are so excited to announce that the twins are both home! They were discharged from the NICU yesterday after a little advocacy by mom and dad. We are so thankful to have them here...they finally feel like they are truly ours. Being able to cuddle and carry them without asking a nurse first is such a treat.
Barnes and Frances were both fabulous on their first night. We were a little worried at first, but they slept well between their 2:00 and 6:00 feedings, then again until their 10:00 feeding. Barnes tried out his bouncy seat today, they went to the pediatrician this afternoon, and in a few hours they will get their first bath at home--exciting times in the Shafer house!
Thank you all for your love, support and encouragement over the past three weeks. The twins are still small and still need a little extra protection (they aren't even supposed to be here yet, after all), but we are so proud of how far they have come.
