Home, A Good Place To Be

A quick update. Brittany was discharged from the hospital on Sunday evening and is recovering well. The twins needed more time in the NICU so they stayed and it was heartbreaking to leave. She was able to have the twins naturally which is a huge relief as the recovery will be much shorter. On Tuesday morning we were getting ready to head in for feedings and visits when the nurse called us and said they are looking really great and we could take them home if they passed a few more tests. We were extremely , extremely excited. We we were in the hospital for about 6 hours and they passed all tests great. We brought them home last night and everything is going well. Long night of feeding and changing, its fun though because we each get one of our own. I'm going to post a pic and vid and then fall back to sleep while I can. More vids here:

That is so great that you have them home! Great video. They ARE tiny, but I know you will both do a great job of growing them. Thanks for more news! I check many times a day. Try to sleep when you can. Lots of love from California!!!
