Home at Last!

Jack was finally reunited with his twin brother this morning when Dave and I finally were able to bring him home from the hospital. We are so thrilled to be finished with this long ordeal and we can't wait to settle in to a regular routine with all of our kids. Jack and Ben were very happy to be back together-- we could literally see them relax and be so comfortable when we put them together. Daddy finally got to hold both of his boys at the same time!

Ben is our big guy at 6lbs 15 oz, which is about a pound more than Jack who is 5lbs 14oz. You can really see the size difference between them, which helps us to tell them apart!

Poor Jack's skin is all broken out from the adhesive used to keep his feeding tube and oxygen tube on his face, but he is still adorable!

I love this one of my guys!

After hanging out together for about 15 minutes, Jack threw up on his baby brother- I'm sure this won't be the last time for that. The boys have to take these awful liquid vitamins and they never sit well in their little bellies. Ben didn't seem to mind, though. I'm sure he will return the favor at some point!
We are excited for Mairead to get home from daycare this afternoon so that she can see both of her brothers together. She is going to start thinking that we will bring home a new one of these every couple of weeks. She is so sweet with Ben, and I am sure she will be the same with Jack. Yesterday, she was 'talking' on her cell phone and then put it up to Ben's head so that he could talk. She also brought him a pair of her shoes and tried to put them on his little feet- she is so stinkin' cute!
Thanks to all of you who have been so supportive and generous for the last 3 1/2 weeks- we have relied so much on the support of our friends and family and we could not have made it through this without you. We will finally be able to send you all some pictures of our kids together!
I will try to keep updating the blog often- with three kids, I'm not sure how often that will be, but I'll do my best!

welcome home Jack!!! I am so glad that your family if finally together!!! If it's ok with you and Dave - Danny and I would like to come for a quick visit on Friday April 10th? We figure we'd visit - see the boys and then take Nathan to Boston. If it's too soon let me know and we'll plan for another time.

Maghan, I know you have been waiting to post pictures of the boys together and those pictures are wonderful! I know that you will be super busy, but wouldn't trade it for anything! I am so happy for you and Dave.
