Saturday Night Fever

Rachael and I both stayed overnight at the NICU last night. I swore I wouldn't get sucked into such a thing, but once I was there I manned up and became do-right-daddy. Riley got a fever last night (likely from her vaccination received earlier in the day) and was up all night. If this is what normal parenting is like, we have a long, long, road ahead. Damn. It isn't easy being responsible for a crying baby all night. I can't imagine what it will be like someday to have two of them home. Needless to say Rachael and I are literally running on empty now. Up all night. Riley will not go to bed unless she is in your arms. Once you have her in your arms she falls asleep. As soon as you go to put her down, she wakes right back up, glares at you, and continues to cry again.

The doctor said she is set to go for tomorrow.

Jack had a good night. He gained weight, didn't puke at all and had no suctioning issues.

Hi Rachael and Brian,

I just wanted to let you know how much you were missed this weekend in Chicago. We were thinking about and talking about you a lot. I just read some of your blog. You two are amazing! You are both so strong and it looks as though Jack and Riley have taken after you! They are beautiful and I can't wait until you have them both home. And then I can't wait to meet them and see you both, it has been too long since we have talked! Take care, you are in my thoughts. I am going to keep checking this blog so I can stay in the loop, technology can be so great sometimes! Love Always, Ally
