Twins 1 month old! First day of school!

Oscar and Lola turned 1 month old today!! they are still in the NICU :( but continuing to improve....slowly. Oscar now weighs 5lbs 14oz and Lola weighs 5lbs 12 oz, they are getting so big! They are still just struggling to eat, without getting distracted or falling asleep.
Till then, we will just celebrate the month we have had with these sweet babies and treasure all the fun times which we will have in the near future when we get to bring them home!

I made them these little onesies to celebrate their first month... of course Lola peed on hers before the day was even half over!

Lola and her googly eyes.

Oscar without his tube!!! (because he ripped it out! and then ripped Lolas out too! they finally had to put socks on his hands and then he learned how to get the socks off so they finally taped them on!)

Milos first day of school (3rd grade) he refused to wear any of the new clothes I got him? Russ and I have decided... 8 year olds are weird.

Auggie outside of his preschool class! he was so excited!

And of course.... the classic auggie picture. ok, 2 year olds are weird too.

3 weeks old... still in the NICU

Poor little Lola and Oscar, Still not home! I really am ready for them to be here in our home. we had a little step backward this week, which made us have to pretty much start all over with feedings again! they both had a little problem with their stomachs, so we needed to stop all feedings and hook them back up to IVs to let their stomachs rest and recover for a while. it was so sad because we have been trying to train them to eat, and then we just stop, they were a little used to getting fed and having full belly's, that you could tell they were hungry! it was so heartbreaking to watch! after a bunch of tests and x-rays the doctors feel that it is ok to start them slowly back on to tube feedings again, but we have to slowly do this, so it does not irritate their stomachs anymore. So.... little step back, hopefully it wont take us long to get back to where we were!? man we love these little kiddos!

Almost 2 weeks old!

I Cant believe that these little babies will be 2 weeks old tomorrow! they have changed so much! they are slowly but surely improving. They are still in the NICU, but are generally really healthy! they aren't on any oxygen, but they just need to learn to eat without the feeding tube. they need to be able to eat all their feeds through a bottle... and right now, they don't even do half a feed through their twice a day feedings! so we are working on it. everyday they seem to do a little better. so hopefully in a few more weeks we can have them come home!
