Busy Weekend

Evelyn and Jessica had a big, busy weekend. They spent most of the weekend being visited by their Nana and Pa Pa and by their Uncle Mark and Aunt Ashley. Aunt LeAnne stopped in as well on Saturday.

Our big news is that we now have two 4 pound babies! Evelyn is 4 lbs 3 oz and Jessica is 4 lbs. Woo hoo!!!! They are getting so big...which is so funny to say since they're still so small.

We are working with both girls on feeding. Jessica is now eating every other meal from the bottle. She is taking close to her entire volume, if not all, each time. Evelyn is taking one bottle per shift (sometimes two if the nurse is ambitious). She is taking about half of her volume from the bottle and is getting the rest of the meal through her feeding tube. We're also working with both girls on nursing, but neither one has quite gotten the hang of it yet. We'll get there eventually.

Today was bath day. We put Evelyn and Jessica in the same tub and had some fun play time. Aren't they cute? Evelyn is on the left and Jessica on the right.

And one of Jessica and Mommy.
