Babies are doing great. Home Health visited Monday and the babies weights are:
Cora - 5#'s 12 oz
Cameron - 5#'s 10 oz
Carter - 5#'s 6 oz
They are gaining about an ounce and 1/2 a day! They are taking 75 cc's at every feeding and today we are trying the Playtex Drop in bottle and as they have outgrown the Hospital bottle & nipple (only holds 75 cc's)!!
As Christmas approaches, cards are mailed, gifts are wrapped, baking is complete, I pause and admire the twinkle in Collin's eye with anticipation of Santa's visit, the 3 beautiful healthy babies, the supportive husband that God has given me and I quickly am reminded through sleepy eyes, lack of shower, non brushed teeth for the 2nd day in a row and the smell of baby poop ......... Yes, I am blessed. Truely, blessed.
Merry Christmas to each and all of you. Lots of pictures to follow in the next week!

Yesterday was a little improvement for the girls. They are up to eating about 60% of their feedings. Cameron during the day did a little better than Cora did.
THEN, last night, Cora pulled out her feeding tube and has 4 FULL feeds. If she continues, we are on the right track!.
Pics from yesterday!!

Carter came home last night and is doing great! He ate like a champ and slept great. He is weighing at a whopping 4'2oz today.
The girls are struggling a bit with their eating and showing no signs of giving up their feeding tube. They take about 15 cc's by mouth and then decide they prefer to have their rest of their feeding the "easy way". However, the docs tell us it can be any day that the "light bulb" comes on. The girls weighted 4.6 (cameron) and 4.9(cora) tonight!
The days have become a little longer with trips to hospital to see the girls twice a day! Pray they come home soon!
Love to all!
