Home!
We are all home and settling in. My life is definitely going to fall into the pattern of: Change a baby, feed a baby, change a baby, feed a baby, change a baby, feed a baby, pump! Change a baby feed a baby, change a baby, feed a baby, change a baby, feed a baby, pee! Change a baby, feed a baby, change a baby, feed a baby, change a baby, feed a baby, take a nap! Etc.

S is snoozing for the moment, the kids are snoozing, having all just eaten. Maggie Moo is running. I am holding my eyes open with toothpicks. Once Maggie Moo rests, I'll sleep for an hour before the next kiddo wakes up. Ooops, I just dozed off for a sec there. Heh. Gotta take it where I can get it. :)

All went off without a hitch getting them home, so it's sink or swim time now! Fortunately, the kids are cute, so I think they'll be worth it. I do have pictures, but need to upload them, which might take a while, so bear with me!

How wonderful! I was just telling a friend today that your babies should be home soon. :-)

Holy heck! I can't believe you're even *able* to make time for an update.

I'm glad your babies are home and and doing well. I hope you get as much help as you need with this transition!

well, there's not much else to do when I'm attached to Maggie Moo. Except, you know, sleep. But posting occasionally while attached to Maggie is doable.

Hooray! Please holler when you're ready for me to come help change a few babies :)

just a tip: she might be too busy to actually holler! I mean I might be wrong but that was a big problem with me. Everyone said get help from the government for instance and I had no time to even think of trying to figure out who to even call.

at 6am this morning, I realized I needed to pee. At noon, I had a home health nurse here checking on the babies since they were discharged from the NICU last night and I finally realized I couldn't take it one second longer and I left her weighing Ellie so I could go pee.

Welcome back! What great news! I noticed you didn't put in eat -- I hope you're finding some time for that too...best of luck with this challenging but exciting beginning, will you be getting help?
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: October 15th, 2007 11:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
there's definitely not time to eat, but my husband is good about putting food in front of me and reminding me anyway. :)

Mazal Tov! Enjoy them!

Tee-hee. I sang that to the llama song.

What are you doing online? I, HD1979 the great and not particularly powerful order thee to bed if your house is quiet!

I was pumping, so couldn't go to bed at that point.

So exciting! Welcome home Cohen babies!

Don't forget to insert "Karen eats!" somewhere in the middle of that pattern. You need food if you're going to make food!
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: October 15th, 2007 11:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
I am very bad about remembering to eat. Seth is very good about remembering to feed me. It works out well, so long as he's home.

Well, since you don't have much time to read comments, I'll limit myself to a "wow, yay, and take care of yourself, too"!!!

TOLD YA SO.

Good luck keeping sane and awake :). Kiss up the babies and enjoy being a mommy!

First of all "told ya so" is not terribly constructive. Second of all, never ever did I deny that I would be an exhausted zombie. Third of all, even if I'd had another person here last night, I wouldn't have gotten any more sleep than I got last night. I got almost as much sleep last night as I've been getting on the nights that they've been in the NICU. When I got to the point that I couldn't stay awake for another diaper change, I woke Seth up and had him change a diaper, which he did so willingly and happily (and if he was grumpy about it, he hid it well).

I knew LONG before I delivered these babies that my life would consist of changeababyfeedababychangeababyfeedababychangeababyfeedababychangeababyfeedababy and nothing more for a long long time. Fortunately, the babies are cute and worth it for the moment. We'll see if I still think they're worth it in a few weeks when I'm going insane from sleep deprivation.

Mazel tov on having everyone home.

YAY! Everybody's home now! I'm so glad to hear it! Good luck - I know that things are going to be crazybusy, but at least you'll be crazybusy with exactly what you always wanted!

Yay! It's great to hear that you are all home and settling in. Just think... right now you're at the very beginning of what will probably turn into the most exciting times of your lives. That's so cool.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: October 15th, 2007 11:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
well, they certainly won't be the most boring times of our lives ahead!
