Both babies are doing well, although yesterday and last night were a little rough. Charlie and Lily did not want to sleep for more than an hour or so at a time, and also decided that they MUST eat every 2 hours rather than the 3-3 1/2 hour schedule they had been on. Needless to say it made for a rough day/night. I was assured by many other preemie parents that this was normal behavior though and something they would move past within a few weeks. In the meantime we decided that we would just feed them whenever they want to be fed, no matter how long it's been since their last bottle, and cross our fingers that they decide to revisit the Land of Nod at some point!
On another note, thank you very much to everyone who voted (and voted and voted) for us in the Best Multiples Blog contest. The contest ends tomorrow (Monday) and it's clear that we won't be the winners. We almost don't mind though, because all of the blogs are deserving. However, since there's still time, if you are still in a voting mood we ask that you pop back over to the site and throw your vote to Multiple Baby Pileup. After losing her sweet baby boy Jackson, mom Megan started The Jackson Malia Fund for Children with Special Needs. After Annaleigh's death, the Fund was kind enough to send us a generous grant to help us out. We are so grateful for their support and can't think of a better site to win the contest prize money.
Today Charlie and Lily were treated to a visit from their great-grandparents Lucy and Freddie.
It doesn't get much better than this! (And feel free to be jealous of my totally awesome pajama pants. You know I look hot.)
Charlie is a stud, even when sitting in a girly boppy.
