Home Sweet Home!

Gotta get my traveling clothes on!

How cute am I?
 We made it!  Finally being able to bring Frances home was the best feeling in the world.  She was wide awake and ready to go when we arrived at the NICU this morning.  And y'all will just have to bear with all the pictures...we took almost 200 today and it was tough choosing which ones to post.  

Getting strapped in and ready to go.

Can we please get out of here???

Ready to ride

Frances spent most of the day awake, looking around at everything, and probably wondering where all the beeping monitors and crying babies went.  I have to admit- Will and I both got slightly attached to those monitors in the NICU- showing us her heart rate/respirations constantly.  The challenge continues to be staying on top of her feedings so she will start to gain weight.  Tomorrow we will head to UAB to see the cardiologist and find out more regarding her heart condition. 

Finally at home...Bella finally sees what we have been telling her about.

Bella was very excited to meet her sister!

We are so thankful for all of the doctors and nurses in the Brookwood NICU.  They were all incredible and made a not-so-great situation more bearable.  We will miss them all- Frances was blessed to have such great care.

Wide awake and checking out her new home.

Two weeks ago tonight we were on our way to Brookwood, awaiting Frances' arrival.  Now the journey continues and we can't wait to see what God has in store for us!
