Three Days Old

September 22, 2009 at 10:44 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

I’m just going to do a short update tonight.. because I need to get to bed. Everyone has been asking Jason and I if we are sleeping enough. We know that we need to do it now while they are still at the hospital but it is just so hard to leave Jack and Leah. Jason is working now and saving his time off for when they get home. I started my maternity leave and have been trying to go up to the hospital for all of the bottle feedings during the day. My favorite feedings are the 8:30 ones when Jason comes with me… having our little family all together is so nice. We are both smiling ear to ear the whole time we are there.

I got to hold both babies at the same time today.. it was one of the things I was looking forward to most and was just as cool as I thought it would be. Jack and Leah didn’t do as well on their feedings today and had to have a lot of them through their feeding tubes but they are trying. The nurses have assured us that they are just acting their age and are still doing great. They were moved to the same isolette today, which is a step in the right direction. I can’t tell you how excited I was when we walked in tonight and I saw two little heads in Leah’s bed. I think the only thing cuter than a baby is two babies.

They were checked for signs of jaundice today and are doing okay right now, but they may need to have the “tanning lights” tomorrow. In a few hours they will be three days old, which is hard to belive. They are starting to be more awake when we visit and are showing us their personalities a little bit. It is so fun. Every morning I wake up wondering how they will change today.

A few new pictures.
