April 08, 2009 - Oh Happy Day!!!

After 68 days in the NICU and over 3 months (including bedrest) of going to the hospital EVERY single day...
They finally kicked us out!!!
Blake graduated weighing 4 lbs 2 oz and measuring 14.5 inches long!!
He came home with NO oxygen or monitors - and only medication for his Hypothyroidism and vitamins.
Braden finally got to see AND touch his little brother, no glass barrier today!, - it was priceless!
Daddy carried him outside for the very first time!!

Mommy and her boys together at last!!!

I finally got my FAMILY picture!! (and no we didn't plan on coordinating quite so nicely!)

On the way home! Braden kept teaching Blake all kinds of things... "Blake, that is called a hotel. This is called a road. That is a truck." This continued at home too - it was too darn cute!
Jill couldn't stay away too long - she stopped over tonight to make sure we were settling in! She's not quite sure what she's going to do at work without Blake!
We are so lucky to have so many who love our little guy!
