Orlando is home. He got his last feeding at the hospital at 5 p.m. Rose and I fed the Mercedes and Reese. Then, the nurse took off all of Orlando's leads and cut off his ankle bracelet. Rose and the nurse fit him snugly into his car seat, and off we went. It was surreal. It is still hard to believe that he is here now, in our home. It is so wonderful.
Reese is being moved into the twin room with Mercedes. The nurse said that he would probably have to stay another week in the NICU now so that he can be monitored. He is doing great, but the doctor wants to make sure that he doesn't have any more "Bradys" before he is sent home.
Mercedes is gaining weight quickly now that she has been switched to ad lib feeds. She also started breast feeding today for the first time. If she can keep up the weight gain, we will have a full house before we know it.
I can't wait to have all of my babies home with us...
