Another Update...as promised!

Mommy and her girls, Emery on the left, Lainey on the right:
Mommy w/George:
He's really been enjoying Kangaroo Care now...before his surgery he pretty much just wanted to be left alone...now his cuddly side is emerging!
Lainey is in a "big girl" crib now!!!
She loves her binky! (Actually, they are all binky babies...they LOVE them!)
Emery was a couple days behind her sister, but she is also in a big girl crib now!
Sleeping so soundly!
Umma Cindi bought the babies their first valentine shirts...they were all sleeping so soundly I didn't want to wake them so we just laid them on them for the pictures!
Lainey (typically Lainey will be in pink):
Lainey is doing great. Her most recent cranial ultrasound showed that the ventricles were shrinking!!! Such a huge relief! At her most recent "weigh in" (yesterday) she was 3lbs 6oz and she's getting some meat on her bones!
George:
George is doing great too. He is up to 24cc's for his feeds, and fortified with extra calories...tomorrow he will go up to 27cc's which is full feeds for him right now, his "goal" is 30cc's, or about 1oz, 8 times a day. His PICC line should be coming out soon and he may be going to a canula/CPAP alternating soon as well! He is weighing in at 3lbs 9oz...taking the lead as the biggest!
Emery (typically Emery will be in purple):
Emery helps to keep us sane! Thank God, she has not had any major issues (knock on wood)! She is at full feeds for her size, which is 3lbs! Finally, all the babies are at least 3lbs!!!
Ryan and I spent the evening at the hospital, as we do every night, but today was Valentine's Day and we couldn't have asked for a better way to spend our night...on a "date" with our 3 little ones! We had a very romantic dinner in the waiting room...Taco Bell! haha! I think it was our best Valentine's Day yet! :)
