The twinkies

Feeding time. And actually the first picture we got with both of them in the same frame.

The boys are doing great. They took them off the lights yesterday, but got put back under the lights today. We were told that is normal. The lights bring their numbers down, but take away the lights and the numbers creep back up. With the lights on them today, they can't be swaddled, and I think they sleep a bit better when swaddled. We tried to bottle feed them today, and neither did as well as before. They seemed so tired. I can imagine. They have to work so hard to just breathe let alone eat. Hopefully they slept well today and will do better on their next feeding. They feed every three hours, with one feeding per shift being a bottle feeding. The rest go through their tubes. We are off now to do baths with them again. I loved doing it once, let's see how it goes tonight.

I love the photo with you guys feeding them. They are so tiny. I'm grateful that you guys get to have these moments were you can hold and feed them. We are praying that they will continue to grow and be able to come home soon.

You can really tell how tiny they are seeing their heads in your hands. What precious boys.

Seeing you guys holding them makes it all that more real of just how little they are. I'm sure there will be lots of scenes like that...of you both feeding a baby. You just probably won't get too many pictures of it. It'll be nice to have some.

I'm still so happy for you guys. I know there will be ups and downs, but hopefully a majority of ups!
Love you guys!
