Today has been a big day for both kids....
Addie was able to come home from the NICU. She is still having occasional heart rate drops during her feedings. But, there is nothing really that can be done. She will start to regain strength as her red blood cell count increases. Mommy and Daddy will be keeping a very close eye on her at home. Before leaving the hospital, we weighed her at 4 pounds 13 ounces.
Alex went to his first pediatrician appointment this morning. He is doing great!
The doctor had nothing but positive things to say about Alex's growth and condition. He now weighs 6 pounds 11 ounces. Both of them will go back in February for their two month visit/shots.

Here is Addie in her carseat at the hospital. We were getting her all ready to come home.
She did great on the car ride home. It is so hard to get her to fit well in the seat as she is so tiny...

When we got home, Addie and Alex rested for a few minutes in their seats.
The blankets are ones that mommy made while in the AntePartum before the babies.

Alex was dressed warm to go out this morning. Do you like the Cardinal blankets?
Thanks to Uncle Mike, these were Christmas presents.

Since coming home, Addie has been very restful.
She did take 58 mL at her first feeding at home. Way to go Addie!

Mommy and Daddy are truly not sure what to expect this evening.

But, we plan on adding more pictures to the blog later tonight!

Check back soon:)
