Tilted Bed & Smiles

Posted on 5th December 2011 in NICU, Week 4

I’m back at work now, so I’m not getting to spend much time at all with the kids.  Tanya’s spending tons of time with them and is teaching them all the great things they need to know so that they can come home.  She’s taking pictures of the kids when she can, but her priority is being a great mom.

Unfortunately, the posts covering the next few weeks will have much less real insight into the twins’ lives than my previous posts.  I’ll do what I can.  Also, this post is for Dec 5th, but I’m writing it on Dec 15th.  If they were still in the womb, Dec 5th (“today”) would mark week 35.  I’m using some publishing magic to back date this post.  Hang on…

 

Cameron’s styling in his new bed today.  The new bed is pretty much just a well-formed clear bucket.  No heater, no fancy hydraulics, and no enclosure.  It has two positions: flat & tilted.  For now, Cameron’s typically in the tilted position.  That keeps the food he eats flowing down hill & probably some other really important stuff…

One convenient thing about his new tilted bed is that we get to take fun up-the-nose shots like this…

Sophia’s losing her water weight slowly & seems to be happy about life.  She’s now also wearing clothes.  Because of her PICC line, they have to “toga” one arm.  One day 10 or 15 years from now, she’ll once again wear clothes that are draped loosely off of one shoulder.  She’ll think they’re cute.  I’ll think they’re inappropriate.  Great.

Don’t EVER tell her that I think her smile in this photo looks kinda like Yoda’s smile…

Sophia can yawn with the best of ‘em.  Yoda does not look like this…
