Going through the posts to recap her lengths and weights each month I was reminded that each month was its own rollercoaster of good days and bad days, highs and lows, fears and excitement. Now that we are home I realize that this rollercoaster continues, it is part of parenting. There will always be fears and joys, good days and bad, we just got a crash course in these extremes for the past 5 months.

Our first week home has been mostly exciting, with just a little fear. We are settling into a routine, we are getting some sleep, and we are enjoying life. In the next few days we will add doctors appointments, visiting nurses, and developmental evaluations to our routine. The rollercoaster will continue...
