One of my favorite pictures from today is Dr. Hart holding George. George and Henryare two months old today, how appropriate for them to have their two month appointment the same day, August 10, 2017.
First of all, I can’t believe they are two months old. Second, if their were born on their original due date (July 31st), they would not even be two weeks old today. Here we are getting their two month shots.
Tonight was all hands on deck. Yes…it was time for the game face. I pulled out the face paint, got in three point stance, and was ready to roll.
Game time was 5pm…quitting time at work…game time at home. Sarah was already two steps out the door when I rolled up into the Rettew Ponderosa. Four nights in a row of non-stop feeding and late night shenanigans was the catalyst for the much needed escape.
There is something special when you find a package sitting at your front door. For a moment, it is like Christmas came just a few months early. I love the feeling of seeing a brown box or soft package when I walk in our front gate as it rests, propped against the front glass door.
As I picked up the package, I noticed it was postmarked to Bobby, Sarah, Rose, George and Henry.
It sucks so bad…it will suck the life our of you. I have found myself in a new area of frustrations, one that is hard not trickle down into my family’s life. I knew it was coming, from the moment I signed that first paper…it kept popping back up and now it is becoming a reality.
I am so scared. I am so petrified. I fear for my family’s wellbeing. I am just scared.
Here we are, the twins are now full term. Yes, today is the day of their 40th week in gestational development. If this were Rosebud, we would have just come home two days prior after being born. The twins are now seven weeks and two days old but more importantly now full term babies. Reminder…28 days in the NICU was a long time for the #Rettew5.
What does this mean, now we can join the development cycle of the full term baby world…at seven weeks old!
It is late in the evening on June 13th, Sarah had just been released from the hospital. George and Henry had just been born four days earlier on June 10th. They were still in the hospital in the Level One NICU at GHS. Rosebud had been spending the night at her cousins for the past few days and life was just completely out-of-whack.
More and more each day…I love watching Rosebud with George and Henry. Here they are getting some awake time in front of the door. I love watching her sitting, hanging out with them, and learning how to spend time with them.
