April 25, 2006 - Gabrielle comes home

22 days after her birth, Gabby comes home from the hospital. Preston continues to do well. It was sad leaving him there by himself. He shouldn't be there long though. He is up to 4 bottles a day and he is gaining weight well. He is now up to 3 lb 4 oz or 1460 grams. He has to get to 1700 grams to be in an open air crib and then regulate his body temp for a few days. Then, he should be able to come home. Gabrielle slept all the way home from the hospital. She was met by a lot of family when she arrived. Aunt Lauran, nana, and great gramma were all at the house waiting to see her. Aunt Lauran spent the night to take care of the girls and give mommy a break the first night. It was wonderful to be able to only get up for 1 feeding. The ladies from the Gabrielle Project (Nancy, Jeanette, and Gloria) have been so helpful in organizing the room for the babies. Thanks so much for all you did to help.

The babies on the photographs are really cute! Are they triplet or twins?
