Update on the boys... They're doing good. Because of Colton's bruising he has some jaundice or his bilirubin numbers are a little high so he has to be on the blanket. He is doing really well feeding and they even started to see if they would take a bottle. He has really good sucking bc they said he can take a whole bottle while Kempton can get some but not the whole thing. Colton also nursed for the first time today! he did awesome. he was able to latch and he did really well with sucking. He usually gets 38 ml from a bottle or from the tube and he took 24 from my breast which the nurse was very impressed with! It was one of the most amazing experiences even though i nursed D but since i can't have them home with me it makes me feel more like their mommy when i can nurse them.
They've both lost some weight but they say that's normal and we hope they will start gaining weight back soon. Kempton is also still in the bed to keep him warm. They are both such great mellow babies. The only time I've heard either cry (more like whimper) is when they are being taken out of or put back into their beds or getting their diaper changed.
And these boys looooooove to cuddle and i can not complain at all..except when we need to leave..that's super hard! I'm not going to lie... Sometimes I have to remind myself that I have 3 kids now. It's hard when I'm not doing mommy things like changing diapers every hour or getting up in the night for feedings or getting them in and out of their crib or getting them dressed. When at home I realize I'm no longer pregnant..they really are here but it's hard! Hopefully it'll get better. I'm glad I'm able to come home and recover from the csection which is going way better then I thought.
ok now for more pictures!
