Theo made a smooth transition to home. The girls really stepped up in those first couple of weeks, which were a blur of doctor visits, well-wishes from friends and family, and emotional processing. I almost fell over one night when the girls volunteered to brush their teeth and get ready for bed by themselves while we settled Theo! Their helpfulness has continued through the months.
We managed to find time to throw a coming home party for Theo. It was so special, with birth mom, birth dad, and Jack Jack’s birth dad all in attendance! I had to head back to work after only two weeks because of our busy season schedule, with the understanding that I would take the rest of my leave at a later time. Jack Jack turned into a threenager just days later, and just had a quick birthday celebration and a promise for a party at a later date.
