I'm not sure there's a better feeling than feeling the warm skin of your baby against your own skin.
Lily Bug could not have been cuter while she was on Brooke's chest. She spread out her arms and made herself nice and comfortable. She weighted in tonight at 1025 grams and is now five ahead of Annaleigh!
Another view of Lily and Brooke. The nurse put a blanket over top of Lily to help trap in the heat, and it really worked. Both babies felt not just warm but hot the whole time.
I got to kangaroo with Annaleigh. She looked so, so comfortable the entire time. She kept one arm resting under her chin and the other just in front of her face. She looked like she was lounging on the beach getting some sun and causally napping. She was remarkably stable the entire time; all her numbers were perfect.
We weren't able to kangaroo Charlie today and we're not entirely sure we'll be able to; the nurses have to ask if it's okay to do that when the baby has MRSA. Hopefully we can because we're certain that he'll like it the best of the three babies. We did hold him tonight for a bit but not for as long as we would have liked. He has a new roommate in his isolation room and that baby's parents are there a lot too, and since the room is so small we don't get to have the same private time that we do with the girls. We're not happy about it at all and we're going to see if there's anything we can do. After all, we don't want our time with Charlie dictated by another baby.
