Happy Father's Day and 35 Weeks Gestation (3 Weeks 2 Days Old)

Hope everyone had a Happy Father's Day. We had a very good one. Tommy is now in an open crib, instead of the incubator and is nursing very well when he's not tired. Liam also had his last dose of caffeine yesterday and he also is good at nursing when he's not tired. Liam is still in an incubator, but I hope that as he gains some more weight he can regulate his temperature better. I'm making sure that even if Liam nurses, he still gets his full feed from the feeding tube which includes the 2 packets of fortifier. He needs the extra calories as on Saturday, they both nursed very well so we chose that we didn't think they needed the feeding tube that day, but Tommy gained weight while Liam did not. So we won't make that choice with Liam until he gains a bit more weight. Tommy is now around 4 lbs 10 oz, while Liam dropped back to 3 lbs 15 oz.

Here's some updated pics. One of the boys side by side (Liam's head is so small!) and our official Father's Day photo of Tom and "the boys". In both pics, Tommy is in the dark blue hat and Liam is in the light blue hat.

When you change the tagline of your blog, don't forget to remove the pregnancy ticker too. :)
