After a hectic Friday (moving day) we were excited for a quieter weekend to enjoy the boys. Aside from bloodwork, and working on feeding goals and temperature regulation, the boys had nothing eventful on the schedule. And they were very popular!
The weekend was filled with lots of visitors. We had friends from WV and OH, an Uncle and Aunt, a Big Brother, and of course, the grandparents are still proudly standing by. Thanks to some freedom in the visitor policy that we weren’t expecting, most visitors have been able to get their eyes on the boys. J and I were looking forward to a visit with K this weekend, but were VERY excited when we learned he would be able to come in the NICU and meet his brothers too!
I will point out that although you can’t see it in the photos…the boys are wearing two adorable matching outfits. We went to a lot of trouble to dress them up, (a difficult task given the number of cords), but then we bundled them back up in layers to keep them warm. Hopefully you’ll ooo and ahh anyway. 🙂
As for K’s visit…he was such a big boy! He was a little timid at first, but asked some good questions. “Where are his hands and legs?” “What is in his nose?” 🙂 He soon warmed up to them and was giving kisses and even helped daddy give N a bottle. He agreed they were pretty cool little dudes. After some family photos, we were able to get some ice cream with the proud big brother. A great weekend indeed!
It was late this evening before we realized J and I hadn’t sat down together with the boys for a couple of days. So we stretched some cords, scooted some rockers, and got a family photo in the new temporary home.
Tomorrow will be busy again. Both boys are scheduled for MRIs, but we were warned it may not be until late evening. With that in mind, you may not hear from me on here tomorrow. We’ll also be back to the normal weekly rounds, and expect to have a lot of foot traffic with the physicians. In many ways, tomorrow will be the real beginning of their assessment process, and our first opportunity to talk to their neurologists since getting settled in. We feel rested and ready to move forward.
Ok, Ok, Ok, enough rambling, here are some pictures!
