Madison meeting mommy for the first time.
Logan meeting mommy.
Elizabeth meeting mommy
CPAP, we don't need no stinking CPAP! Terrible grammar aside we got some good news today. Apparently, Elizabeth took herself off of CPAP in the middle of the night, not a big fan of it I guess. The nurses decided to monitor how she did and to everyone's delight she was fine so no CPAP for her, only room air. Around 1 this afternoon Madison was doing so well they took her off CPAP as well, couldn't let her little sis steal all that room air. Logan is still on oxygen but doing well.
For those who remember our little Logan's heart issue while in utero you'll be happy to know so far there is nothing showing up on any tests that should raise any flags. They are going to do a couple more but the thought is the heart should be fine. He is suffering from some positioning issues which have his head kind of tilted towards his left shoulder and his head is a little mis-shapen. Neither should cause any long term issues and the occupational therapist is pretty confident she can "straighten" him out. This is pretty common with multiples as the baby on the bottom has a lot of weight sitting on top of them, so basically no worries.
Mom is having a tough time, but is doing well. She is in a lot of pain and is finding it difficult to get in and out of bed, it really is too high for her and she struggles to use those ab muscles (can't figure out why). She is so excited to finally "officially" be a mom, she can't wait to hold them all. We should get to hold the girls later (I did hold Lizy earlier but Mom couldn't make it down) while they fed. They are getting fed through a tube that goes all the way to their stomach, they will try to introduce bottle feeding in about 2 - 3 weeks. They are on a strict every 3 hour feeding schedule and this is the only time they can be touched. Currently we are the only two that can hold them but hopefully soon grandparents can as well.
I am a little tired as we are not getting sleep so if this post has huge holes in information I apologize. If there is anything you are curious about please leave a comment and I will answer it next time I post.
Here are some photos of the babies from yesterday. We did not get too many today as I forgot the charger at home. Hopefully I can get some good close up shots tomorrow. For the record Elizabeth has a lot of AJ's features while Logan and Madison have more of mine. Still to early to tell if this is actual or just sleep deprived parents projecting what they want to see, time will tell.
Okay so I have made fun of everyone under the sun on this blog so now I must turn the table on myself. I was looking in the mirror yesterday and too my surprise I found 4 or 5 grey whiskers. I will be 29 in a week and my babies are less then a day old and I already have grey whiskers. By the time these babies are one I will have lost all my hair, grown a santa beard and waited in line at the bank, what a year in front of me.
