It's always the highlight of our day to go to the NICU and see our beautiful girls. They were looking so cute in their little outfits today. Unfortunately we were not able to take any pictures because we accidentally left the camera at home. The girls are doing well. Rachel's vent settings were decreased more today. She will be tried on the CPAP again later this week. We hope she will be able to do it this time. She really doesn't like the breathing tube anymore and its getting harder and harder to keep her from pulling at it. Haley is having her eye surgery tomorrow morning. I held Haley tonight. She just snoozed away in my arms. I love to just hold and gently rock my little girls. They are my everything. I am so grateful for them and am so blessed that we were chosen to be their parents. Our little girls are such miracles. I can say that I have witnessed miracles in my life - Haley, Rachel and our angels Dallin, Kaitlyn, Braden and Ashlyn. These miracles will be forever treasured and remembered.
Tonight we had good friends come over to visit with us. They are great people. We truly love and admire them. They have a beautiful little two year old girl. Thomas had a great time playing with her and making her laugh. I can see that Thomas will be a wonderful father to his daughters. He loves and cherishes them so much. He gives them many kisses when he holds them. Thomas mentioned to me that it was so awesome to play with her, not only because he has a great love for her and all kids, but it brought him comfort and hope knowing he will be able to do the very same with Rachel and Haley when they come home. We look forward to that day when we are able to bring Rachel and Haley home and to have their precious lives in our home. It just doesn't feel complete in our home right now, simply because our girls aren't here with us. We know that they will bless our home beyond measure.
