Alltogether

Yesterday was a remarkable day in our babies' lives - finally we could all be together in the family room of the hospital! Wow, this was a special feeling... Ralf got out of intensive care already on Thursday and we had one day to get to know each other better - he has been the only baby who has enjoyed the one-on-one time with his mother. On Friday, Sten joined us, too - then, it was only Fred who was left in the intensive care... But he was strong enough to get out from there yesterday - and suddenly, we had 3 babies in our room and the VERY BUSY time has started! Triple worries, but also triple happiness! :)

We have had some visitors already, too, who have helped us to feed the babies (very hard work for them, so it takes hours to make them eat their milk - they just do not have enough muscles, yet...) - my mom helped, Erik's sister helped, Aune helped... It has been a big help, really. But during the nights, we are coping ourselves - I think today night I slept approximately 1 hour. It may take about 1 month before the babies start to eat properly, so sleepless nights will be a part of my life for some weeks. Need to get to used to them now!

Here is a picture of aunt Helen feeding baby Fred:

Those lovely flowers were brough by my colleague and good friend Marina:

Those cute Pooh-bears were given to the boys by our neighbours. Ralf owns the donkey, Fred's pet is the elephant and little Sten has the rabbit! :)

How lovely to read that all three boys are now out of the intensive care! What a busy life now starts for you...phew...and many sleepless nights!
The Winnie Pooh family for your princes is lovely =)))
Hugs,
Martina

Nii tore, et olete nüüd kõik koos:) Kindlasti ei ole alguses kerge, aga kui olete teineteist paremini tundma õppinud, läheb ka veidi kergemaks, ma usun. Loodan, et kojusaamine ei ole ka enam nii kaugel!
