After 129 days at Duke, Cameron is finally home with us! I honestly don't know if it has even sunk in yet. This is what we have been waiting for. We are so blessed and thankful for how God has provided for us.
Here are some pictures of Cameron's homecoming:
Cameron redid her carseat test before we left.
Cameron's monitor that must be hooked up at all times except baths.
The nurses cheered for her and blew bubbles as we left!
Aubrey meeting her sister for the first time. She was so excited to see two babies. At first she did a double take but then she had a lot of fun showing everyone that there were two sisters and where they were!
Reunited at last! Sisters together. Reagan on the left, Cameron on the right with the pacifier. So far today they seemed pretty oblivious of each other until tonight. They both started crying at the same time and boy did our house fill with noise! Then, we laid them down in the crib together and they stopped...for a bit.
Cameron seems to slowly be adjusting to being at home. Seth's mom pointed out today that Cameron is almost just like Reagan was when she came home. It is amazing what three weeks at home has done for Reagan - for the most part, she seems calmer and more like a full term baby than previously. Cameron left the NICU weighing about 5 lbs. 4 ounces.
We are so excited to be all at home together...even though that means lots of sleepless nights and chaos - we will do it together. We are so blessed to have the continued support of friends and family and their continual prayers. Our goal for the next few weeks is to establish a routine if possible and to finally all get settled in together - even though we have a ton of appointments in May coming up.
Prayer Requests for the future:
-the adjustment of all of our girls
-Cameron on her monitor - that the need for one would diminish quickly and that if it goes off for a real alarm that Seth and I would be able to address her needs promptly with no real emergency; also that we would not have a need for her cortisol shot and that she would outgrow the need for it soon.
-Upcoming appointments and retesting of Cameron's hearing
I probably will not be posting as often but promise to post pictures as time permits - we are going to be busier than ever but couldn't be happier!
