I'm always posting cute pictures but I thought I'd share two from today that have me in stitches, instead...
Is it just me or does my daughter look kind of evil in this picture? Perhaps she's thinking "Get that camera out of my face or else!"
I cant stop laughing at this picture. That is his "I want to nurse" face. How can you argue with a face that cute?
(And, of course, I posted cute pictures too...)
The babies are doing great. They are four weeks old. I cannot even believe that. It is insane. He's 3 and a half pounds and she's 3 pounds... They have gotten so big (I know that sounds nuts when the Thanksgiving turkey you buy is at least double them- together) and are starting to fill out their bodies. He's doing well with his temp outside the isolette (it waxes and wanes... sometimes he measures 97.4, the lowest he can and still remain outside; other times he's well over 98). She is quickly getting to the point where she will be on the outside! Both of them deliver lots of (STINKY!!!!) diapers and they are tolerating their milk increases well. They both still have some reflux issues but that has gotten better, which is a sign that they are growing out of it. They are also growing out of their bradycardia spells (when their heartrates drop and they need stimulation from the nurses to bring it back) and their oxygen saturation is mostly in the high 80s and 90s (over 82 is good). They tend to bring themselves back up whenever the heartrate or saturation drops, which is excellent. Gestationally, they would be 32 weeks on Saturday, so they are doing a great job.
It's great being told your kids are the most stable in the NICU; however, I have to say that I really love hearing they are the cutest. :) I'm sure the nurses say that to everyone, but to hear that my little stinkpots are the most adorable little ones... That takes the cake.
