Homeward Bound!!

Tomorrow Miss Lexie will be coming home!!!! We are so excited and just can't wait. Ethan is the really excited because he has been impatiently waiting to meet her. He doesn't like the fact that kids are not allowed in the NICU so this will make his day. She got her feeding tube taken out a couple days ago and has been doing great with her feedings.

I am nervous because she is so small and barely weighs 5lbs. I have never had a baby that small so hopefully I won't break her. We even had to go and buy a new car seat. We brought it in for a test run and it wouldn't even hold her in. The buckle had at least 5 inches between her and the seat belt. It was swallowing her whole which made me realize how little she is.

Of course, we don't want to leave the big sister and big brother out!

Max was only 4lbs 8 oz. when he came home from the hospital. It is scary, but we didn't break him. I am so happy for you!

You don't know who I am exactly, but we are related through my husband Ramon. I just wanted to let you know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers during this time. It is great to see that you were able to take your precious little one home so quickly! We will continue to pray that everything continues to go well for her. She is so beautiful!
