Finally Home... :)

Hey ladies!

After 4 weeks in NICU Charlotte & Cassidy are finally home!!!! Its been such a relief to finally be home, to spend sometime with our 2 yr old DD and not have to drive everyday!!! We were finally dismissed from the hospital on Friday.

Although I know the exhaustion is yet to come - the first few days home have been very relaxed and easy going. DH & I are taking shifts at night so we can each get about 6 hours of sleep. He's off of work now for the next 2 weeks which will be AWESOME! Though I'm not sure how I'm going to manage things when he has to go back to work... Any ideas??? Since I have a 2 yr old in the equation as well that makes things a little more interesting...

Anyway, about the girls and our time in the NICU. After being born via emergency c-section at 31 w 5 d gestation Charlotte was 3 lbs 0.5 oz and Cassidy was 3 lbs 6 oz.
