One Month Home

MeMe came to help momma on the first Friday we were home.

Wednesday marked one month home for the Galloways. It has been a great month overall. We are thrilled to death to have the boys home. There have been many challenges and even more long nights, but Leah and I as well as all of our family are working hard to care for these little angels. In the month we have been home, we have had many visitors over to see the boys. It has been great to have the support we have had since we've been home. We want to thank our parents and our family and well as all of the family of friends we have. We are truly blessed to have you.

Leah goes back to work in two weeks. It's a moment neither one of us are looking forward to. On Tuesday our new nanny starts. We pray daily that God has placed this person in our lives for a reason and that she will care for the boys as if they were hers.

As far as the boys. They are both approaching 9lb.s and we couldn't be more pleased. They are still adjusting to sleeping at night which means they aren't sleeping much at night. But we are resting when we can and are trusting everyone's advice that they eventually do sleep. God has truly blessed us with these healthy boys and we continue to praise him every day for it.

Happy Mothers Day

The Soul Squad has been home 12 days. We have already had our first pediatrician appointment and the boys got their first round of shots. After all the things they had to endure in the NICU, they took them like champs. We had our final follow up appointment with the Ophthalmologist on Friday and the boys eyes are great. There have been a lot of adjustments on everyone's part here at home. The dogs aren't real sure what to make of things just yet. We had some trouble in the beginning getting the boys to nap for any extended period of time. But we have discovered they are big fans of the swings and they now spend a lot of time swinging in them. Our biggest adjustment obviously has been the lack of sleep. The most we can seem to string together is 4 hours at a time. Momma and I are exhausted but we are getting help from our family and friends. We are so blessed to have the support group we have to help us with a few "shifts" here and there. Other than that, we continue to be amazed at how God has graced us with these amazing children. We still can't believe we are home with them. They make us laugh every day and we are so truly thankful for them.

We want to thank all of you for continuing to support our family with thoughts and prayers. I will continue to update when I can. As you can imagine, we take pictures every chance we get.

God Bless,
