Babies Situation:

The Girls are 36 weeks today and got to meet their Aunt Kirsten for the first time. Kirsten was able to even give Trinity her bath. How fun!! I got the privilege to bottle feed both Girls. Trinity took about 10 cc’s but she was done after that. From the look on her face, she decided that getting fed from the bottle was too much work and preferred the tube feeding - ha. Kinsley did much better and finished half of her bottle before she was too tired to continue. We’ll just have to keep trying until they can get it down. Trinity remains at 4 lbs 15 oz. Kinsley gained weight - she is now at 5 lbs 2 oz.

Parent's Thoughts:

I think bottle feeding is more stressful for me than it is for the babies. I am great at multi-tasking but when it comes to bottle feeding, I have a hard time watching their face for stress cues, feeling their back to see if they are breathing, and making sure the bottle is tipped at the right angle. I am also suppose to pace them with only letting them have up to 5 sucks at a time before giving them a chance to breath. Wow, I never thought bottle feeding could be so hard.

Our Daily Encouragement:

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

Isaiah 40:28
