Babies Situation:

The Girls are still off caffeine and are doing great. Andrea did warn me that the caffeine will remain in their bodies for 5 days so not to be too disappointed if they have a few apnea spells after 5 days. If they do, it doesn’t mean that they will need to go back on caffeine. Their apnea could occur up until they are 40 weeks. Trinity gained weight and is now 5 lbs 13 oz. She got to sit in a bouncie seat for the first time. Kinsley also gained weight and is at 6 lbs 4 oz. She will get to sit in a bouncie seat after one of her night feedings. She also had a big accomplishment tonight. She took her entire bottle in 10 minutes!! Andrea called us around 11:15pm letting us know the good news. Yeah!

Parent's Thoughts:

We are still getting our house ready for the babies to come home. I have a feeling we will be preparing up until the day they come home. I try to do a little each day and so far, it’s working out well. I did talk to the NICU Chief of Staff today for about 20 minutes. He said the Girls aren’t ready to come home yet since they aren’t bottle feeding well but once they get it, it will be a short notice for us so be prepared. He let me know that the bottle feeding will continue to be a struggle at home. Preemies start off not eating well and continue to struggle for a few months. It sounds like it will remain a challenge for us but we will take it on with everything we got.

Our Daily Encouragement:

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

Romans 15:4
