It's been.... One Week*

Well, we've made it through the first week! Shannon and Paige were sent home on Sunday! Matthew and William remain at the hospital, but it looks like Matthew will be discharged tomorrow. William is still working on remembering to breathe and he needs to learn to eat (minor things, right?) but he really is doing very well overall. He's on track to come home sometime next week. So, we're adjusting to life at home by adding one baby at a time. While not perfect, it does have its advantages.

Everyone is getting some sleep, though tomorrow will bring a new adjustment with Matthew's arrival. And, for those of you keeping score at home, Haley has returned to her overprotective, motherly self, and really likes to lick Paige's head. This, of course, does not sit well at all with Joshua, who is very stern with her about the fact that the baby is not to be licked!

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. We'll try to be more frequent with the updates. And we'll get more pictures up soon.

Goodnight from the Gausman 6 (+ Haley!)

*a shout out to BNL... if Carl was coming up with titles for the posts, they would all be song lyrics!

How wonderful that Paige got to go home with mommy. They always told us that the girl would be the first one release and surely enough, she was, even though she was the smallest one. Enjoy having one at a time since it will get a lot more hectic once everyone is home :-)
So glad to hear that everyone is well!!!!
