Cuteness Everywhere

Posted on 23rd November 2011 in NICU, Week 2

The twins were doing great today.  Cameron’s still gaining weight quickly.  Sophia started back on her food, although she’s lost a little weight since yesterday.  They both really enjoyed being held today.  Most importantly, they did some serious posing for the camera.  Here’s the fun!

Bless you!

Psssst….I’m cute…

Sophia locked eyes with Tanya as soon as they cuddled.  An earthquake happened and neither one of them even blinked…

I have a feeling that Cameron’s not going to like being swaddled when the time comes.  He sleeps just like me…he takes up as much of the bed as possible…

Cameron doing pullups on his cannula again…

Cameron’s feedings got bumped to 18mL each time.  He strategically gurgles up just enough to coat his mouth with some cake and not enough for his nurses to count it against him.  (I’m not sure why he likes that, but whatever makes him happy I guess.)  At this rate, he’ll be doing a shot of milk each time before long…

The raisins are still hanging around…

After he got his meal, Cameron went right back to his favorite position.  STRETTCHH!

Sophia got a new bracelet today (my wedding ring)…

Sophia also tried on Tanya’s engagement ring.  It might be just a little too big for her still…

Sophia’s little round of food intolerance a couple days ago meant that her feedings got cut back to 6mL.  Don’t worry though, they both are “fed” all the additional nutrients they need through one of those many tubes directly into their blood.  Here’s Tanya getting ready to feed her…

Cameron wasn’t quite so gazing during his cuddle time.  As soon as Tanya cuddled with him, Cameron went into hibernation and didn’t wake up until I got him…

Cameron was completely out.  He didn’t even do any cannula pullups (which he’s learned to do in his sleep)…

Think of this as Cameron’s snack bar.  He may one day open his own snack bar.  Hopefully it doesn’t look like this…

TURN OUT THE LIGHTS!!!!!

Cameron’s little fingers…

Cameron behaved for the photos with me.  As soon as Tanya put down the camera, Cameron asked to cuddle with Tanya some more…

YAAAWWWNNN!!!!

Hey, have you seen my neck?  I can’t seem to find it…

He’s thinking about something here.  It might be the solution to world peace…or it might be poop.  You decide…
