Hoping to get costume pictures tonight when we go back to the hospital so check back later:)
Brooklynn and Giovanni have both started bottle feeding. They get to try at one feeding each day to take their formula from the bottle. Both are doing really well taking about 10 mL at a time. This is a huge success in the milestones they have to reach before being able to come home. Obviously they have to be able to take each and every feeding from the bottle with no problems before we can even have the conversation about them coming home but we are taking steps in the right direction! Both of these two are now dressed in clothes and looking even cuter than usual!
Jade was put back on her nasal canula and seems to be doing much better. She will probably reamin on it for 5-7 days before they try taking her off of it again. She works hard at her breathing so we were surprised when she came off it so early but did pretty well until just the other day when she had several episodes within an hour.
Kensley has come off her nasal canula and is doing great! Leighton remains on his but is progressing towards becoming more independent. These two seem to be our social butterflies so far. They both love to get attention from anyone who will give it to them and stay awake most of the time while being held to check things out.
All of the babies will have another round of brain scans done next week as well as screening for retinopathy of prematurity (issues dealing with their eyes). I will keep everyone updated with the results as we get them!
