Emmett comes home!

Time to come home!
When we got home, look at the banner waiting to greet Emmett and me!
Of course, posing for pictures didn't last long before it was back to being brothers as usual - Carson thought kicking Avery off his chair was a hilarious idea:

We've had some amazing help from so many amazing people during this time. Honestly, who wants that first morning shift that gets them up at 4:30am to come stay with our kids so we can get to the hospital so early?
The first day the boys were out of the house all day to play with Sienna and Dawson. Our fabulous homecoming banner was a product of the boys' day there and RaQuelle took some fun pictures of them:
For more cute pictures of their time there go HERE. I was pretty worried about how Carson would handle so many sitters, but apparently he held up really well! Yea!

Last night I had a fun visit from Kristel and RaQuelle. They even entertained me with changing Emmett's diaper for me! I love the look on Emmett's face here as Kristel holds his legs up and RaQuelle does the dirty business...
Apparently hungry babies who've just endured a diaper change don't smile for the camera...

I'm so grateful for all the help we've received during this process - it's amazing how much more has to be handled when you have kids waiting at home. We had 6 different sets of sitters, some with not so great time slots, some with long time slots, and most were last minute arrangements. All of that equals AMAZING people. Thank you so much!
