Babies Situation:

The Girls are 15 weeks today and their feedings are top priority. I started off trying to feed Trinity (
one of her two bottles for the day) but I wasn’t successful from the start. Trinity did not like the taste of her new formula so Crystal had to take over. Crystal was able to get Trinity to take 40 cc’s but it was hard work. When I say hard work, I mean Crystal really had to push her. At 20 cc’s, Trinity did her usual shut down but Crystal pushed her hard to get over the hump. I think the key to success here will be for all the nurses to do the same. If they let Trinity give up at 20 cc’s, we’ll be visiting the NICU for a long time. Kinsley is still very sleepy during her feedings but she did decide to stay awake in between feedings - ha!

Parent's Thoughts:

The speech therapist will be by tomorrow to watch both Girls feed. Keith plans to take the day off so it will be nice for him to experience a feeding with her. Please continue to pray for the Girls through this time. Feeding isn’t coming easy to them. It’s very hard work for them and us as parents. Thank you for the continuous support we get. It is so helpful through the hard times.

Our Daily Encouragement:

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

James 1:12
