2 Weeks Old

Our babies are two weeks old and continue to do well. Their weights are Eli 4lbs 7oz and Emerson 3lbs 7oz. We had another good visit with the babies. I tired to feed Eli his bottle again but he wasn't having any of it. He was asleep the whole time and we didn't get anything accomplished.

He just sat there sleeping with his mouth open and eventually we gave up and just fed him through is feeding tube. It is still so much work for him to eat from the bottle. We also had another milestone Eli peed on me while I was changing him. Everyday the nurses ask if it has happened to us and yet and up until yesterday the answer was no. Marcus a few seconds prior was encouraging his son to pee on me and so he did. Funny stuff I'm sure it was the first of many times that will happen and Marcus will have his moments as well.

Emerson had her consult with the OT yesterday and with the OT was able to drink an entire bottle, but then she was exhausted for the rest of the day. She was asleep pretty much the entire time we were there.

Overall pretty uneventful which we like. Although when Marcus and I each were holding a baby our least favorite nurse came over from room 2 to see our babies. The look on Marcus face was priceless. I'm so grateful we each had a kid in our arms so she couldn't touch them. Yuck we really can't stand that nurse.

And just because more pictures. Eli looks like he's praying in one of these which made Marcus and I laugh, so I started saying the "Now I lay me down to sleep prayer" with him. When I got to the part about, "if I should die before I wake..." Marcus gave me the most horrified look and told me I needed to come up with some new words to the prayer. I tried explaining to him that this was how it went but he was having none of it, so a little revision work seems to be in order for that prayer in the future.
