One Year Ago...

One year ago today, Sofia and Madeline were discharged from the hospital! This day was just as life-changing as their birth. We went to the hospital that morning expecting to bring just Sofia home, but the doctor let us know Madeline could go too if we were alright with it. It was a big surprise but we couldn't say no to that! We were so sad to leave Josie behind but she had to get stronger before she could join her sisters. I'll link-up the first couple posts of them being home.
All set to leave the hospital!

Madeline had a bath her first day home!

I'm so glad I don't have to re-live that first night with Sofia and Madeline home. My life was flashing before my eyes- I was picturing every age and how hard everything would be. The following night was much better and I finally believed we could do this! And here we are today- they are so happy, healthy, and manageable!

Sofia and Madeline have been walking across the room! Their main mode of transportation is still crawling, but they are definitely progressing.  Josie is taking a little break in the walking department.

Josie is happy after her nap!
All three of them are so funny lately. We already knew they think it's funny to burp, but now they are pretending to burp, then breaking out in hysterics! I hope we aren't creating bad manners monsters! (Hehe I'm not actually worried about that.)

 Have a great weekend!


  1. Just realized this means I've been following your blog for well over a year and I don't know if I've EVER commented! And I also must say that it cracks me up that it is like a natural thing to think that body functions are funny. Your story gave me a giggle.
