Kassidy, the last of the bunch, came home today! It is so nice to have all of them here. It was hard to split my time between home and the hospital. I think it is interesting that the babies came home in reverse birth order. They must have wanted to make it easier for me to remember, since I seem to forget a lot of things lately!
This weekend Jayson, Riley and Kaiya headed back to Texas. Jayson needed to go back to work (since now it is more important than ever that he remain gainfully emplolyed!!) and the older kids were anxious to get back. Riley will start school again in a week. It is strangly quiet around here with Riley and Kaiya gone. They have been so sweet with the babies so far and I hope it continues! They both get excited when the babies wake up and they can hug and hold them. Riley can even feed a baby if we need him to. Kaiya is dying to try feeding a baby by herself, but I am not ready to let her "help" me that much yet!
Our church has been incredibly supportive since we started bringing babies home. People bring meals three times a week and many people have signed up for shifts to help with the babies. The volunteers that really amaze me are the ones that want to come for the overnight shift. Besides the volunteers, my aunt and her family have been incredibly helpful. I am so grateful for all the help since there is no way I could do it alone.
Here are some recent pictures of the babies:
