Owen is Home!!! Finally!!

Today we had the last few visits by the doctors, speech therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and home health personnel at Kosair. There are a lot of people involved in caring for these little babies. We were cleared to leave at about 1:00 PM today and got Owen home just in time for us to give him his first feeding on our own. It's funny after almost 4 months since Owen was born to come home with him and feel like we just got thrown into parenting. Luckily we were so well-prepared for dealing with his feeding tube at Kosair. We only had a couple milk spills while we fumbled around with his feeding gear.

Thank you for all the support along the way. We wouldn't have made it without all the thoughts and prayers, the gifts and food, and all the other things our friends anf family have done for us. We feel so thrilled to finally be able to start bonding with our little guy and watch him grow every day.

This is Owen right after his first photo session this morning with Bella photography. He was really good for the pictures. His outfit was very cute, but even the newborn size was a little big for him.

Owen getting his first meal at home. I think this rocker swing will be a big hit. He falls right to sleep.
