The Happy Family...

Greetings to our faithful blog readers!

Apologies for the delay in our postings as of surprise to any of you that life is keeping us very busy!!!

Addison and Aidan are doing so well. They are growing each day and are now both above their birth weights (Addison by about 2 ounces and Aidan by about 5 ounces!). They are both off their IV fluids and getting their nutrition from mama's milk with the HMF (Human Milk Fortifier) they add for extra nutrition. This is a big step for them! They have also both decreased in the flow and percent of oxygen they are getting.

Jason and I are enjoying getting to spend time with them. We have a little stack of books we keep up there and read with them. A few of our favorites are "I Love You Stinky Face", "Horton Hatches An Egg" and "The Pokey Little Puppy".

Addison still has a little bit of fluid around her lungs and she continues to get the lasiks to help pull the fluid off and out of her. This is part of the reason she hasn't gained as much weight as Aidan.

We know you all want to see another round of photos and we will put some up soon...promise! :)

Thanks for your continued prayers and encouragement!!!
