Quick Update

Hello everyone!! I hope you all are fantastic!

We are great! We have been home for a little over a week now. Sophie was released from the NICU in Bruges on Friday, April 8th and we made the 6 hour drive back to Germany. We are beyond thrilled to have her home with us. She is such a joy and we feel so very blessed to have this precious baby girl.

She is slowly gaining that much needed weight she needs. On Tuesday we went to the doctor and she had finally reached 5.5 pounds! Her appointment went well and the doctor said she looked completely healthy. We go back next week for her 2 week checkup which will be a little more thorough of an examination.

We are slowly getting her routine figured out and learning more and more about her everyday. It is the most amazing feeling having her home and finally getting the chance to be a family.

And now, I must go make a bottle!
But before I go, I'll attach A LOT of pictures for your enjoyment!

Sophie Update

Hello all!!

Just wanted to stop by for a quick update. Sophie is doing better and better every day! We are all still here in Belgium and Sophie is still in the NICU. She is now on her third week in the hospital. At this point, everything is looking great... she just needs to gain a few more grams before she can be released. We are hoping this Friday will be the day! Here are a couple pictures of her. She is now a little over 2 weeks old (-4 weeks to be exact.) She is technically 37 weeks old.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!










Jon has been writing the birth story and we hope to share it soon!

Until then,
