We're Home!






Lilly sleeps great and she sleeps anywhere. She does the best when there's lots of noise, I guess there are benefits of having a baby in the NICU, it was loud in there. She is having trouble keeping food down, so we've been back to the doctor for lots of weight checks. She was on antibiotics and I hope they were causing the nausea because she finished them today. She's slowly gaining weight, so they said she won't have to come back in unless anything changes. She weighed in at 6 lbs. 10 ounces today.
Eli loves her and is a great big brother. He hasn't been jealous at all and keeps talking about how we are a happy family now. I guess he knew someone was missing after all, and he's just as happy as Ben and I are to have her home. He helps with bottles, baths, and pacifier replacement. He always wants to hold her, and asks where she is first thing when he wakes up from his nap. He's already learned how to blame things on her "Lilly needs this cheese grater"!

Beautiful pics- I'm glad you're a "happy family" now! Sounds scary to adjust to taking care of her on your own- I hope she eats better now without the meds! Thanks for the update
