We have been going to the hospital twice a day, and I think we take pictures every time we go.
Tyler finally got to hold them. The hospital's rule is that siblings can only come on the weekends, and only if they are under 12 and have their immunization record. He is an awesome big brother. He got to hold each, and then both together. He sang them each a lullaby and a primary song, told them something about space, and kissed the special spot on their heads.
They are doing great. For a while, they put them together in the same bed. Just yesterday, Carter graduated to an open air bed (he can hold his own temp, yeah!) but Brady has a little less meat on him and is still under the warmer. They are both off their IV's, which means that they are now getting all their nourishment from formula. The one thing we need to work on is bottle feeding. They currently are taking 2 of their 8 feedings by bottle. Neither takes the whole amount, but they are getting better. That is what we will spend the next couple weeks on--feeding and growing.
Here are the pictures:

The twinkies co-bedding (doesn't it look like they are wrestling? my what fun times we have ahead)

The moment when I actually realized: wow, I am going to have 2 babies to take care of
