The Amazing Race

Aiden came home Tuesday! He's so much fun and we are so glad he's finally with us all the time! We love being with him. We are trying to get adjusted to having our first newborn at home, get him on a schedule, teach him to breastfeed, and still travel 1 hour away roundtrip to see Abigail at the NICU. This has been a difficult task since I pump every 1 1/2 hr, feed him every 3 (but it takes an hour), and it takes so long to get to her. This has been a quite stressful so in the midst of it all, we have what's called "The Amazing Race". Aiden's apnea monitor will alarm, all 3 of us will take off running to the nursery (nearly killing each other through doorways, ect.) and we will stimulate him to get him to breath. It isn't funny that his monitor goes off, but it is quite hilarious to see us trying to get to him. Especially in the middle of the night when we can't see anything. Hopefully he will grow out of this soon and breath consistently on his own! Abigail is doing well, increasing her feeds, and they took the pic line (a massive IV that runs up through her leg) out of her foot!
