Going Home!

Today was the day. 43 days after being born, 6 weeks and a day, 36 weeks gestational age, 5 pounds 9 ounces, and Julian is finally ready to leave the hospital. It was a joyous occasion, but also a lot of difficult goodbyes to the nurses in the NICU. It brought tears to my eyes. All of their hard work, love and dedication carried Julian through some tough and scary times. For them, we will be forever grateful. And now he's home, along with his mama, and we are very excited (and yes, I'll admit to a little trepidation as well but won't bore you with all of my fears). The next few weeks/months/years (:-) are bound to be full of every emotion imaginable. We're so happy to have them both home. He is loved more than he can possibly know.

Bear with me for a minute while I post a slew of baby pictures, for benefit of Julian's grandparents (Me!) and great-grandparents:

Are We There Yet? (he slept "like a baby" in the car)
