It's a good feeling having all my children home.

Biscuit is home finally!  The NICU discharged her on Saturday.  She has an appointment with the Pediatric Cardiologist about the hole in her heart (VSD) later next month.  They expect it to fully close before her appointment. 

Unfortunately, no one will clip a tongue-tie on a heart patient without a Cardiologist approval.  So, we're waiting to see how that pans out. 

Biscuit and I have an appointment with the VERY BEST lactation consultant in the nation today.  (Did that sound braggy?)  I'm uber-excited whenever I get to meet with her because she is SO knowledgeable that I just want to pick her brain for hours. 

Peach is thrilled that there's a new live dolly at her house.  She squeals with delight when she sees her and wants to hold her 472 times a day.

The big kids and cousins have been very helpful and are eager for their chance to hold her too.  The twins seem amused. 

I wondered how I would feel when I brought her home-- leaving the hospital for the last time with a newborn knowing she's my last.  I gotta say, it's a good feeling.  I feel our family is complete.  :)

Yay! I hope all goes well with the cardiology appointment and the lactation consultant. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

Now comes the important part. Good luck with the recovery. It probably already feels normal.
