Welcome home boys!

On Tuesday, April 12th, exactly two weeks after being born, all three of our boys got the okay to come home! Needless to say it was one of the very best days of our lives. In the morning we woke up knowing that three of our boys were still waking up in a different location, hooked up to monitors, and that very night we went to bed with all of our sons sleeping under the same roof. There was such a sense of peace and joy just knowing that we were all finally together. 

One of the things that will stand out most in my mind was what it felt like to finally lift them up and hold them without any monitors or IVs attached.

c' ya nicu!

Colin crawled right in the car to see the babies. I love his expressions in these photos because he looks excited.

 You can see all of Colin's tools in the bottom right corner. He immediately dumped out his tool box and started showing all his tools to the babies. He even got out the tape measure to measure them. 

Colin was also very eager to "help help" as he says. He pulled over one of his little chairs all on his own, climbed up and said, "help help!" It melted my heart to see him so curious and actually happy about these little guys. He did a great job of handing me a diaper and other essentials.

 Family Pic! 
If we look happy in this picture, it's because we are! 
Our family feels so complete.

 I had to include this picture because I was cracking up that Colin kept wanting to shine his work light on the babies.... as if to inspect these new creatures suddenly moving in on his turf. We had to keep telling him that the babies don't like the light shining directly in their eyes. 

I know they'll be fast friends.
