Together at Last

May 6th, 2008

33 weeks gestation - 4 weeks old (28 days)

Today I got to hold all three babies...at the same time. It was so amazing to see all three of them together for the first time since they were inside of me. I was so happy that Cal was finally reunited with his brother and sister (even if it was only for a few minutes). I can't believe that Paul and I have been blessed with such an incredible miracle.

More good news...Aidan and Brooklyn were taken off of the nasal cannulas today and both of them did very well. I left the hospital at 9 pm and both of them were still breathing room air. They still have their feeding tubes, but the nurse said they may try Brooklyn on bottle feeding tomorrow. That would be fabulous! Aidan is still having trouble digesting his food, so he needs some more time to get this whole eating thing.

Calahan and I kangarooed today for a couple of hours. He is staying awake for longer periods of time and his sweet little eyes melt my heart. Today when the nurses took Aidan and Brooklyn back to their isolette and it was just Cal and I, a single tear formed in his eye and trickled down his cheek. I burst into tears because I felt like he was letting me know that he misses his brother and sister. I dream about the day that all three of them can be together again with their mom and dad.

It was a long day for us, so I will end this post with a happy heart and heavy eyelids. Thanks for checking in on us!

Happy Four Weeks Baby Doods!
