Big Steps Forward.............

What a day! Mommy spent another 12 hour day with Alex and Addie today.. It is amazing how fast the time actually goes as there is so much to do! Today, we tried our best to stay on schedule. However, mommy is learning that even though the twins only eat every 3 hours right now, it takes a lot more time in between to prep for their feedings....... Here are some pictures from the visit today... Enjoy!

Addie and Mommy rest after Addie's afternoon bottle. Addie continues
to be a great eater. She is still taking 34 ml per feeding and it takes around 10-15 minutes
for her to take the whole bottle.

I see you peeking Alex! He is getting to be a BIG boy.....

No, it is not the 4th of July today, but Alex does have a new "Uncle Sam Hat".
This hat may fit Addie this coming 4th of July......... Mommy was able to hold both kids
for over an hour today. They can get very heavy even though they are so small.

Here are some updates from the Thursday visit:

Addelynn: She continues to do well. Addie is a happy baby most of the time.
Mommy really likes to bottle feed her as she is a great eater. She knows how to pace herself
through her feeding. Addie will be getting the RSV shot on Friday and will be moving to an open crib on Friday evening, pending things stay the way that they are... This evening, she weighed 3 pounds 11 ounces. Once Addie is moved to an open crib, she will be very close to coming home. Right now, she is attempting to bottle feed at everyother feeding. Hopefully by late this weekend, she can try attempting at every feeding. We have to remember that Addie will be using a lot of energy/calories to maintain her temperature in the open crib. Therefore, it may take her a few days to get back on track with bottle feeding.

Alexander: More and more personality is being shown everyday by Alex. It is so fun to just sit and watch him rest. He likes to smile and peek at you. We are still working on trying to get him to take all of his bottle. He does pretty well. However, he tires out quickly. He is taking 54 ml per feeding. I love listening to the noises he makes! Alex will have the RSV shot on Friday too.
Tonight, Alex weighed 5 pounds 11 ounces.
