Just a little update on those sweet boys...
The boys are doing great! They are able to maintain their own body temperatures in the shared crib and are really starting to understand and follow a schedule. This morning when we got to the hospital they were facing one another and were just staring...it was the cutest thing and I hate that I didn't have my camera to share it with you guys! They are both feeding well and are wide awake when we go to visit every three hours, so they are getting into the swing of things!
We were able to bring in some of our own swaddling blankets for the boys and of course we wanted them to match, so here is a picture of their new wardrobes from yesterday. We are also members of the TMOTT group here in in North Carolina which is an organization for moms of multiples. Yesterday we were invited to go to the house of the chairperson for their preemie closet and were overly blessed to be able to borrow tons of preemie clothes for the boys to wear for a little while until they are big enough to fit into newborn clothes. T
he doctors and nurses have given us an anticipated coming home date of next weekend! Keep your fingers crossed that we will be able to have those sweet boys sleeping in our room in just a few more days. I cannot say enough about how wonderful the staff in the special care nursery has been and how much they love the sweet babies that are in there. It is comforting to know that Coleman and Carter are in such great hands when we are unable to be there.
