First Family Photo

Posted on 12th December 2011 in NICU, Week 5

(This is about December 12th, but I wrote it on December 18th.)

 

Amazing, amazing day.  Sophia got her PICC line out today.  The twins’ wires & tubes were finally long enough and their playpens were finally close enough that we could get our first real family photo today!  Go ahead, skip all my writing…find the family photo.

Sophia was really laying on the charm today.  She’s inherited some of Tanya’s magic.  (For now,) she’s an angel…

You are not yet at the family photo.  Keep going.

Apparently sleeping makes Cameron mad.  I’m not sure why he sleeps for 20 hours a day…maybe neither does he.  Here he is, fast asleep, looking frumpy…


You still aren’t at the family photo.  Keep.  Going.

Here’s Sophia with me.  She almost looks happy.  Magic, I tell ya…


Nope, still not the family photo.  Keep on, keepin’ on.

Because of some insane law or hospital policy that nobody seems to be able to actually quote, the twins can’t actually touch.  Rumor has it that the sky will fall or some other fire and brimstone event will happen if the kids so much as touch clothes.  I don’t get it.  Sounds like stupid bureaucracy to me.  However, we can get them close to each other.  Here they are almost, but not-quite hanging out together…

Yippee!  You made it to the family photo.  Without further ado…

EDIT: Some people have asked for the full-sized version of this photo.  You can click on the photo above to get a half-sized version.  If you want the full-sized version, you can download it here (17MB).

Tanya was bouncing off the walls at the family photo opportunities today.  I don’t remember a time that Tanya has ever smiled this hard.  Cameron was just looking at the walls…

Sophia couldn’t care less about the family photos.  I apparently didn’t care enough to shave or dress up for the event…

The angel…

You’ve gone to far!  The family photo is back a few.  Go back!
