Spencer got tickets to the Bulls vs. 76ers game from his mom for his birthday. The game was last night. We left the boys with a sitter and had a great Friday date night. Unfortunately, the Bulls were on the receiving end of some miserable calls (IMO ;-) ) and ended up losing the game after having a big lead...at least the birthday boy was happy. Yes, his birthday was like a month ago and we are still celebrating! I swear he gets a whole darn birthday season! Anyway, I couldn't help but think about Jen and Craig as we were driving home last night. It was about 11:00 and we were tired. I was thinking about how we were going home to a quiet house with 4 little boys all sleeping soundly in their beds. I was looking forward to climbing in my bed and going to sleep....until morning. Then, I thought of Jen and Craig. I have to admit that I did chuckle a bit, in my head, about how their night was probably just getting started. LOL!!
Our boys were released from the hospital one at a time. Ben was the first one home at 17 days old. We got home with him about 8:30pm. That little 4 pound stinker did not got to sleep until 4am the next morning. The poor little guy was probably so scared...but really, he couldn't have been any more scared than I was the next morning. We had Ben outnumbered 2:1 and he totally whipped us. We were so exhausted and completely clueless. The thought that we had two more babies at the hospital getting very close to coming home to us was definitely an overwhelming thought. The good news is that we survived and Jen and Craig will too.
I did talk to my sister this morning and she said the first night went pretty well. She said that her and Craig made some "rookie mistakes", but the babies did very well! Yay!!!
I don't have any pictures of the new cousins. My boys have been on-and-off sick this week and I have a feeling that we are not going to be let anywhere near the new babies any time soon. So, I'll take this opportunity to post some pictures from when my own 'Baby A' and 'Baby B' got released from the NICU.
