I woke up without an alarm for my 6 am pumping session. Excitement filled my body and I could barely sit still long enough to pump the 30 minutes I had become accustomed to without babies nearby.  This, thankfully, would be the last time I had to pump for my babies who were in the NICU. As soon as I was done pumping, I showered and prepared my bags and such to go and hopefully pick up our sweet baby girls from the NICU. I called for an update on the way there and to let the girls' nurse know we were on our way. They had a great report making me even more giddy with excitement. We arrived just after 8 o'clock in the morning and at 10:08 we were loaded into the car and heading home as a family of four.

This was the first ride home from the hospital that I didn't cry the entire way home, fighting the vomit that crept up my throat every time I thought about leaving my babies behind. Although, I had a lot of complications it was honestly a blessing in disguise. The complications I experienced kept me in the hospital for all but 7 days that the girls were in the NICU. For that, I am thankful. My heart couldn't have taken an extended time of leaving the NICU, day in and day out, without my sweet girls.

September 8, 2013 was one of the top 5 best days of my life.

I cannot believe this was two years ago. It seems like just yesterday that we brought our bitty babies home from the hospital. The joy I experienced that day is indescribable. Thank you Lord for continuing to watching over our babies. 

Happy NICUversary to our 
sweet, spunky, opinionated, empathetic,  full-of-life, two-year old daughters! 
Mommy loves you big!
