Catching Up

Previously on "Two Princesses"... Evelyn and Jessica were born on Thursday, June 4th. Evelyn Louise Spruill was born at 11:26 PM and weighed 2 lbs 8 ozs and was 14 inches long. Jessica Catherine Spruill was born at 11:27 PM and weighed 2 lbs 2 ozs and was 13 inches long.

Both girls are currently wowing the nurses at the Duke Intensive Care Nursery (ICN). They are enjoying their spa treatments and being waited on hand and foot. This should get them completely ready for when daddy gets to spoil them later.

Both girls have been completely breathing on their own. Jessica since Friday, and Evelyn since late Friday night/Saturday morning. They've both been treated under the bilirubin lights (aka the spa treatment), and have responded wonderfully.

Both girls started getting a little more nourishment on Monday. Add to that they are getting some milk now and they are doing very well.

Cynthia got a added treat of getting to hold Evelyn for the first time on Monday for about an hour.


  1. I love the title - hopefully the Tea Party Princess has inspired you guys. Not sure if I can call Cynthia "Queen Mum", though...

  2. I am so happy to hear you are all doing well! I can't wait to see photos of the princesses. I hope the queen getting some rest. KT
