How old are we?

Lilypie Premature Baby tickers

Monday, December 14, 2009

Turns out we are not totally getting the hang of the bottles. Mommy came in later than usual (because of the new admissions which turned out to be triplets) and tried to give us our bottles. Neither one of us did well for Mommy or when the nurse tried. Of course, the nurse told Mommy that one day we will just get it. They all seem to say that! Then Daddy's car died so Mommy went to go pick him up...she didn't get to see us this afternoon but luckily, they both came back this evening. Kitt did not do much of her bottle tonight but Garet took all of hers for the nurse and Mommy combined. It was a good team effort. The trick tonight was switching to a slow flow nipple which keeps the milk from flooding our mouths. We'll see if it works again tomorrow.

The best news of the day is our new weights:
Kitt weighs 5 pounds, 14.2 ounces and Garet weighs exactly 5 pounds!!!!!

  1. I haven't checked the blog in a few days and WOW! what a difference I'm seeing. You girls are filling out and looking beautiful! Now all you have to do is catch on to that bottle. It's not long till Christmas and we're all pulling for you to be home then. Keep up the good work!
