Reese came home almost 2 months ago, and recently her sweet sister Ava joined her.

|Ava still has a journey, she is on a ventilator, a g-tube and has her trach. They have around the clock nurses for at least 6 weeks as they transition to having her home|
|Tummy time for sisters!|
Since they girls were so preemie (born at 26 weeks), their immune systems are so vulnerable. If they get a cold, they could end back at the NICU. After 6 months of being in the NICU, Zack and Hil don't want to take the girls back. Visitors are extremely limited, so I was excited this past weekend when I heard that they were going to be taking a dip in their pool in their backyard (right next door). I grabbed my camera and headed right over.
|I got these glasses for them for their 1 month old gift. I knew their mommy and daddy would be taking them outside when they got out of the hospital, had to have my girls in style.|

I so want to grab those little girls and cover them with kisses, they are off limits for almost another year though. Especially since I have my own kids germs all over me :)
So excited that both girls are home, I look forward to the day that come running over to my house, to play with our kids and I get to spoil them and kiss them then. That time will be here soon enough.
