Welcome home baby Lily!!!

Lily has been doing so well! She was able to get off the oxygen and she had her feeding tube removed not too long ago. Her doctor told me today when I went to visit her that she really didn't see any reason to keep her any longer. She is over 5 lbs now and she has been staying warm and working really hard to have every meal with a bottle. She passed her car seat test and we were able to bring her home today! We survived 5 weeks and 4 days in the NICU!!!! It's been a long and tiring road but she has recieved good care and we are grateful for it. Em is soooo excited to have her sister home and finally be able to hold her and see her without glass separating them! We are so excited to finally be together as a family! We are so grateful for all the thoughts and prayers that have been sent our way. Everyone has been so kind and reached out to us. We are very grateful for all the answered prayers we have had in the last couple months!!

Em is holding her sister's hand. It gives you some perspective of how small she is when her hand is this small next to a 5 year olds!!

We got a big snow storm and Jas and Em went and made a big snowman. Em was so excited to have some snow to play in!! We had fun playing in the snow and having a snowball fight too!! I love how excited kids get for the snow!!
