Happy homecoming

Today is a bit of a special day for us, it's two years exactly since the girls came home from hospital.
While their birthday, celebrated three weeks and one day ago, is also very important - I always remember the day we were actually able to leave the hospital and bring the girls with us as the first day we both really felt like they were ours.

That's not to say the nurses and doctors who cared for them in the Special Care Nursery weren't great - they were wonderful caring people, it's just that having the babies under our roof was a huge milestone.

We sat on the couch and each held one in our arms and just gazed at them sleeping for a while as we figured out what to do next!

So happy third homecoming my beautiful girls.

Gorgeous Photos and Extra Gorgeous Girls. Thankyou for sharing these with us. It is special when you are able to bring your baby home (I can remember felling the same with Amelia - she was 16 days old before we could take her home!) And am hearing you on the sitting there looking at them - I did the same thing this time too!

Hi,
I just happened upon your blog looking for skirt patterns online for my twin girls! Our girls are 5 months now and I remember all too well how it felt to FINALLY get them home with us.
Thanks for posting and your girls are ADORABLE then and now!
