I was supposed to pick Jeremy up from the airport, but it turned out I had to go to Beaumont instead. I called Jeremy's friend, Dan and he was able to pick him up from Metro and bring him to Beaumont. I was so grateful he was able to help out. After 25 hours, Cate made her appearance. I was so relieved afterward that I didn't end up having another c-section! This recovery has been so much easier!
The next day we had a few visitors, my Dad came up, Jen, Gramma & Grampa Montgomery, Jill and Rhonda. My hospital stay was a lot less stressful this time since I was feeling pretty good.
My Mom brought Matthew & Claire up for a visit on Tuesday. We also got to see Kathy, Julie and Charlie. Matthew & Claire got to take turns holding Cate, I was glad I got to see them since I haven't been away from them for more than 9 hours at a time (while I'm at work) since they were born!
Wednesday morning Cate took her first car ride to our house. It was great to be back home. We settled in and Matthew & Claire took turns inspecting the baby.
Thursday we went for our first well-baby check up with Dr. Navai. Cate had a good check-up but she was a little jaundice so we had to go to have a blood draw (poor baby). Aunt Cheryl and my Mom came with us and they were a huge help! My Mom had to go to work that day so Aunt Cheryl stayed with us and made dinner. She even watched the kids so I could take a nap!
I'm wayyyy behind on blogging, I have so many great photos of the twins that I need to put up. I thought I'd just start with Cate's birthday and catch up over the next few weeks.
