Thursday Update

Thanks to all of you who have been so supportive and encouraging since the boys were born. We know that we are very lucky to have our three beautiful and healthy children. We have more than most people could ask for, and if we focus on the positive, we see how truly lucky we are. Also, during times of stress like this, we see how many amazing friends and family members we have who are instantly ready to help us out in any way they can. It's easy to take friends and family for granted, and we want to thank you all for being there for us.

The boys looked great this morning. They are both wearing real pajamas and they look adorable in them. Jack is up to 4lbs 11 oz and Ben is 5lbs 1oz. Ben just has 2 more ounces to go before getting back to his birth weight. He still has his feeding tube- I think he likes getting food that way. His belly is full and he doesn't have to do any work to get it. Both of them have good bilirubin levels, so their jaundice is pretty much gone. They are a nice color- that orangey tint is gone.

These pictures are from last night when Dave and I spent time with both boys. The first picture is Jack getting some quality time with Daddy. Dave did have a chance to hold both boys on his chest (kangarooing, the nurses call it) for a long time, so that was nice for all three of my guys. He looks so tiny in this picture!

And here's Ben in his 'big boy' pajamas. He looks so cute in them- even if they are still too big! They are also really comfy and soft.

Mairead is feeling better today after her sleepover at Nana's last night. I really missed having her here, though. The house was so quiet! I guess we had better not get used to that! Thanks, again, to all of you who have been so supportive. We can't wait for all of you to meet our boys!

Jack looks so tiny in that picture with Dave. That look is priceless though! Hope your feeling ok.

The boys are looking more adorable with every picture. Thank you for doing such a great job keeping us all up-to-date with the boys. It makes such a huge difference to be able to read how they're doing and see new pictures every day. Instead of just wondering how things are. Thank you for your efforts.
