Two Months Old!!!

It is hard to believe, but the girls are two months old today. It's amazing how much they've grown over the past two months, especially in the past two weeks.

To celebrate, the nurses got the girls some presents!!

That's right, the girls have moved out of the isolets and into bassinets! Jessica is on the left or top (depending on your browser's window size). We keep them bundled up good just to help them maintain their temperatures, and to keep them from moving around the bed.

Jessica had a even bigger day. Overnight, she ate one of her entire feedings, 32 ml, from a bottle! That's a little over 1 oz. This afternoon, her and mom had their first breastfeeding session. Jessica has the technique down, but wasn't getting much out today. They'll try again tomorrow. She now weighs about 3lbs 9 oz.

Evelyn is inching closer to 4 lbs. Tonight she is at 3 lbs 12.5 ozs. She lost a little today, but has been having big gains over the past week. We expect her to hit 4 lbs any day now. She's having a little problem with her hematocrit that we are having to keep watch on. Hopefully, she'll be able to fix this one on her own. If not, she'll need to get a transfusion sometime later this week, or into the weekend.


  1. YAY!!! We are so proud of them !!
