Today we went and picked up our baby girl!! Its about time! We were so anxious that we went to the hospital right after the doctor discharged her ready to take her home. Unfortunately, the nurses had to do some paperwork, bloodwork and we had to watch a CPR video. After we finished all of that we got home at around 4pm. As soon as we walked in the door CoCo was extremely curious of what we brought home. She ran around the house, barked and tried anyway she could to get a glimpse of her. We are trying to get into a routine of feeding, changing her diaper and trying to eat ourselves. It is all such a new adventure, and we have already been pooped and thrown up on. She is already such a blessing to us and we are only expecting more great memories in the future.

Addison is doing better and better everyday and today was no different. She is completely off of her antibiotics and everything came back negative for any infection. They took her IV off and she will be home when she decides to eat 40 ml every 3 hours. She has become a little lazy about eating but the feeding @ 6:00 she finished all 40 in 5 minutes. If she keeps this up she will be home!! We are very excited about getting her home and start a some what normal life. Well, as much as possible with a new baby. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers and please continue to pray for her to eat more regularly from a bottle.

It's been a great day, Addison has been taken off everything and is eating only from a bottle. The tube in the pictures is not connected and is just there in case of an emergency. We are so blessed to have her, and are looking forward to getting her home. We will find out more information about when she is coming home tomorrow. Here are some pictures and a video of Lindsay feeding her for the first time. Enjoy!!!!

On Monday, August 25th, after 13 hours of pure fun, we welcomed our beautiful daughter, Addison Clare Mathews, into this world. Although, we have had a few worries everything is fine, and she is improving hourly. God has blessed us with her and we could not be happier. Here are some pictures for everyone to enjoy.
