Happy Friday everyone!
Today I went to the hospital for the eight o'clock feed because Miss Adeline had drunk all of the milk I had given them in storage. She is up to 26 cc's which is about half of a bottle. This morning, I got to help her try to drink the milk through her bottle instead of her feeding tube. In the NICU, they like for the girls to "suck, swallow, and breathe" while they feed and she is starting to show progress. She looked at me like, "What is this thing in my mouth and why is this so hard?" but she did manage to get a couple of cc's to go down. Maralee is still on Pedialyte but now she is getting it at least every three hours so she isn't so hungry. It warms my heart to see the girls making progress. Tomorrow, they would have been 35 weeks in my belly so it gives me hope that we will really start to see some improvements in their weight gain these next couple of weeks. Thank you for your continued prayers for our little girls; it has been awesome for us to see the results!
Below are some pictures of our families holding the girls. We have been so blessed to have such caring siblings and parents. They have been so supportive and we are forever grateful for how much they love these new additions! We love all of you so much!!!!!!!!
