Here we are, the twins are now full term. Yes, today is the day of their 40th week in gestational development. If this were Rosebud, we would have just come home two days prior after being born. The twins are now seven weeks and two days old but more importantly now full term babies. Reminder…28 days in the NICU was a long time for the #Rettew5.
What does this mean, now we can join the development cycle of the full term baby world…at seven weeks old!
Have you really cried…I mean ugly cry. The cry that you want no one to see, yet it feels so much better after it is all over.
I only witnessed my father cry one time, and I will never forget it. I was so confused, did not understand…but watched mhim never talk about that day ever again. Joseph Gelfer writes in his latest exploration titled “We Need to ‘Undefine’ Masculinity” and exploration of gender roles and how we define this idea of what it means to be a man.
Each time I see this picture…it breaks my heart.
It is late in the evening on June 13th, Sarah had just been released from the hospital. George and Henry had just been born four days earlier on June 10th. They were still in the hospital in the Level One NICU at GHS. Rosebud had been spending the night at her cousins for the past few days and life was just completely out-of-whack.
More and more each day…I love watching Rosebud with George and Henry. Here they are getting some awake time in front of the door. I love watching her sitting, hanging out with them, and learning how to spend time with them.
I think it is completely fascinating how so many are trying to eulogize or hint at their obituary for Senator John McCain. He is a fighter, not just because of military background but his political stamina. He is amazing.
After traveling as a journalist covering his 2000 Presidential Campaign, he was beast.
Last night was one of the more trying nights we have experienced since coming home from the NICU. Henry cried and screamed from 12:30am until about 2:30am. This was just the beginning of my manic, nightlong experience that led to a public prayer.
One of the biggest discussions Sarah and I had while she was pregnant with George and Henry, would we let them sleep together or put them in separate sleeping areas.
