My goodness. It's 3:20pm now and one or the other baby has been up since 3:30am. They had slept on 3 hour blocks for a few night but before we got too spoiled...Craziness! David has been quite the little clinger today but did manage to calm down just enough to allow himself an afternoon nap. He has also been quite the eater...he's nursed, taken his bottle and eaten from a spoon a few times. He LOVES to play "airplane" with his cereal and opens his mouth (aka hanger) every time now.
Mary Louise is still a bit finicky about cereal and honestly, today, wants nothing but a bottle ("filled to the top please mom!").
Their appetites are amazing - and seem to be growing by the day - or the hour! I am thankful for such good eaters - I've heard some horror stories from other preemie parents - and I've also heard that "to catch up" preemies have to grow quite a bit faster than term babies during their first 2 years...I can confirm the latter thank you!
We're having lots of fun here with play time. The babies get really into things now. They are grabbing, watching, tracking, squeezing, pulling, pushing - and learn a bit more everyday. They love the soft lights and sounds. They are absolutely fascinated by the Christmas tree. (which by the way, took us exactly 3 days to complete but was well worth the trouble to see their little faces go into that amazed stare when we turned the lights on in the dim light of evening).
We have our at home physical therapy tomorrow so I'm kind of excited to see what they're going to do - and what our next goals are as far as their medical care goes.
Just a quick update - Daddy's home!!! must run!
