Josephine is HOME!

We had our final discharge on Saturday and we finally brought our little (big) Josephine home! It was weird saying goodbye to all of the nurses and other workers at the NICU. We couldn't be happier, though, to have all three together again! Since the last posts had no pics, here are a bunch of recent ones....

Dan and I right before marching out of the NICU (and no one stopped us from taking her home!)

Josephine gives a sly smile in her car seat...
My uncle came all the way from Connecticut to meet his grand-nieces!

We had to put them all together pretty much right away. Order L to R Sofia, Josephine, Madeline. Josie looks so big!

Another group shot: L to R Josie, Madeline, Sofia (2 out of 3 being awake is not bad!)

Madeline enjoying their new bouncer from our friend Cristina!

This afternoon I was taking a little rest break with Sofia and Madeline and they looked so cute with their hands together! (Sofia on left)
I had to include this picture of Josephine getting a nebulizer treatment because she loves to "help".

Our first complete family walk- Madeline in the Bjorn, the other two in the stroller.
The first night home with Josephine wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. During the night feedings we got them all fed and bottles washed in only one hour each feeding (not all that much longer than before)- and I'm sure we will get more efficient with practice. Luckily, we are still getting much needed help from both of our families. Have a great week!


  1. congrats!!! I have been praying for your family :-) So glad you got all 3 girls home with you :-) Must be the best feeling in the world :-)

  2. Congrats! That's really exciting. :)

  3. incredibly sweet. I be you two couldn't be any prouder parents! Here's what I don't were you pregnant with quads and look that DANG GOOD?! You're going to make me look like the good year blimp ;) DANG you look GREAT for just having 4 lil kidlets. I bet James is looking down upon his sisters thinking how proud he is of them too. It takes special people to be parents to high order multiples. Your children are all lucky to have such wonderful parents like you and Dan. Congrats on having them all home. If you are still interested in the photography, let me know. I am currently not working so I can come over whenever. I'm in Eagan, so RV is probably only a 30 minute drive for me. But would be SOO worth it to see those deliciuosly beautiful babes and their gorgeous parents! Best of luck to you all. God Bless!!

  4. CONGRATULATIONS!!! This is huge! Those beebees get cuter every day... :)
