NICU Day 26

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

There is nothing better right now than holding those 2 beautiful babies. My mornings go by so quickly. Once they are home, I think I may end up living in squalor; I cant imagine having to fill my day with housework and grocery shopping when I could just watch them sleep.

Click here to see the videos I captured today thanks to the wonderful technology of my cell phone...

Damn if it doesnt make me miss their siblings so much... Why didnt we think to use our cell phones to take more pictures or videos or something???

(Technical notes... Bobby's crib is ready for him; he'll be put in tonight. He had a VERY stinky 40ml diaper- yuck! His feeds are going well. He was very alert and awake for 90% of our holding time. Maya saved her dirty diaper for Daddy, LOL. Her canula is down to half a litre (still room air) and they are planning to wean her completely this week (fingers crossed!). She nursed better today than she has (that feeding tube gives her issues... once the canula is gone, it will go in her nose and she'll be much happier, I think) and was awake for about 80% of our holding time. She peed through 2 outfits since changing her last night and was in her 3rd outfit in 12 hours when I got there this morning. Talk about going through clothes!)

hahaha..I love how Maya left her load for Daddy :D
Babies are such poo factories as my husband puts it. You'll have twice the fun. Enjoy!

Typical girl wearing several outfits a day! The videos are so cute. It will be nice when the tube can be out of her throat.
How exciting that he will be in the open bed. That is great news.
You have been very blessed with Bobby & Maya, I am so happy for you and Peter.

Soon they will be chowing down and spitting up and wrecking even more outfits. Just think of all the glorious laundry! :)

The videos have me in tears. I'm sorry I haven't commented as much as I'd like, but I read all your posts and you are all in my prayers nightly!

I am so emotional for you Michele. The happiness I feel for you is pouring out in tears right now. There is no one who deserves to have such beautiful babies as you and Peter.

I love hearing that everything is going so good for the babies. Babies vs. Squalor - I'd take the babies too!

Those videos are just too precious!! I love those tiny little hats they have on, too.

Thinking of their siblings today. Hugs to you.
