a visit with Mimi and Granddaddy

After their appointment, we exited the hospital just as stealthily as we'd entered. We were off to a pit stop at Mimi and Granddad's (Brent's grandparents - they lived just 10 minutes away). They had not seen the babies since their eye surgeries at the end of their NICU stay!

Oh it was so so good to see their reactions to our little ones. Such proud great-grandparents! What a special time it was. Brent and I were indeed exhausted- almost as if we'd been in a written test all morning. This stop and a good lunch was just the ticket to get back on track and defeat the hour drive back to Mommom's. Pops and Ma Mere were there with Mimi and Granddaddy as well so it was quite a family affair - and there were plenty of open arms for babies!

Mary Louise fell asleep on Pops' belly and David rested quietly on one of his favorite shoulders belonging to none other than his Ma Mere. The great grandparents were able to hold each baby for the first time. Just sweet and touching beyond words.

We had a nice visit and made it back to Houma and Mommom and the Uncles without too much trouble. The babies actually slept better than ever for the rest of the visit there!
