Quick update and proof that Jayda will be a helpful big sister!

Things are great here! I am finally home from the hospital (after 6 long days) and am back to resting in my own bed. Sierra is still in NICU, but she's doing great. She just needs to eat, grow, and maintain her body temp and she should be home in no time. We can't wait to bring her home so we can all be together. It's difficult having one car, one toddler at home, Russ needing to work, me having blood pressure concerns which still make me really REALLY sick, and a baby in NICU...there's just not enough time in the day...yet we realize how blessed we are and wouldn't trade this for the world.

I just wanted to share the below picture of my sweet Jayda Grace. I went downstairs to get something today and when I walked back to my room I found Jayda sitting in my spot with the Breast Pump next to her. She had "hooked herself up" and was watching a movie on my lap top computer. When she saw me she smiled the sweetest little smile you'd ever want to see and said "look mommy, I'm pumping my boobies so I can get some food for my baby sister!" She was so proud of herself. She's so stinkin' cute!!!!!!

Hi Cori & Russ! I came across your blog from Noel's. Congratulations on having another beautiful baby girl. She may have been early but she sure looks healthy & strong! You're very lucky! Our thoughts & prayers are with you during these trying times. We know that all will be well! Don't forget to take care of yourself too because you can't take care of your kids unless you feel good yourself!
Best wishes,
Chad & Julie

That is too funny! We are so glad that the baby is doing well and that little sis wants to help in any way, shape, or form. LOL! I just can't wait to have our baby Porter born.

I am so happy that you are home, its so nice to get out of a Hospital bed. But I can only imagine the sadness of having to leave your sweet little baby. You are so strong. And I know she is in great, capable hands.
I hope all continues to go well and that you are all home together in no time.
My thoughts are still with you guys.
