Yesterday the twins were one week old. I meant to get this posted yesterday but crying babies, feedings, and diapers come first. :)
The twins love to be close together. Sometimes it's as if they can't even get close enough. When we put them down soon enough they will have inched their way together until they are touching-- usually head to head. We couldn't resist the picture below when we saw them holding hands yesterday. I think they really do love each other. :)
So, we have made it through the first week and we are all still alive. Though some of us seem to be suffering from a little sleep deprivation. :) It has been an interesting week. Our little Kylie likes to gives us scares-- it was her umbilical cord that prolapsed. When she was only about a day old she burped up and then sucked it in causing her to choke and quit breathing momentarily. Derek, who was holding her at the time, quickly ran her out the the nurses who quickly took care of her and all was well with no more problems. We have decided that the trip to/from the hospital which is about an hour away is just too much for her little body. She seems to get worn out pretty easy. After coming home she was totally worn out and that night was very listless. She couldn't even eat she was so tired. We were able to get to her eat from a bottle and that perked her right up. A few days later we had to make the trip back to the hospital for a check up-- her bilirubin levels were a little high when we left the hospital the first time. Once again she got worn out and even the doctor was a little concerned about her listlessness. By the time we got all the way home she was extremely worn out. Once again out came the bottle and after a little nap she had perked right back up again. She has been doing fine since. Derek told her no more long trip especially to the hospital. :) Philip is doing well and was already over his birth weight when we left the hospital.
I am doing well too. I get a little more energy everyday so each day is a little better. I still marvel over these two little babies that we have been blessed with. It is amazing to see them and hold them and know that they are ours.
The boys just love them too. They can't seem to get enough of them-- especially their little sister. She is the apple of their eyes. I think she will be very spoiled and well protected by them. Who could ask for anything else.
