We’re five weeks old!


Raegan, NICU day 35


Ella, NICU day 35

Five weeks! So hard to believe how fast the time has gone. Since last week, the girls have done well in the growing game, Ella is just under 4 and a half pounds and Raegan just under four.

This week, I started breastfeeding the girls twice a day, which as I’ve posted, is…interesting. Depite everything, Ella is actually the nursing superstar.

Raegan had a bath this week, which was hilarious and adorable, and left her with super soft, fluffy hair. Afterwards, we dressed her in a sweet cupcake onesie that seemed small enough for a doll.



The girls have started bottles as well, with Ella finishing a whole bottle last night! This will come in handy as I see many bottles and sterilizing in my future.

Ella had to wear a brain monitor over the weekend to check for seizures. Thankfully, she didn’t have any. Her nurses think that her apnea is related to her positioning, which often happens when she moves into a position that cuts off her airway.

The girls and I had a lovely cuddle today before I headed home, and I really saw how much they look alike. Both slept in the same position with their mouths hanging open. Pretty damn adorable, if I do say so myself.
