Update on Twins - 5 Weeks Old

Tommy and Liam are 5 weeks old today and there's a possibility Tommy may come home today. He's been managed with on demand feeding since Wednesday evening and they took the feeding tube out yesterday morning and didn't replace it. He nurses like a champ for his feedings and is taking bottles of breast milk when I'm not there. Both boys passed their car seat test yesterday. Liam was still tired for most of his feeds yesterday, so he never nursed when I was there, but he has been taking bottles well when I'm not there, so he is getting there. And Liam did nurse for one full feed on Wednesday. Tommy still has almost a full pound on Liam. Their current weights are as follows:

Tommy - 5 lbs 10 oz
Liam - 4 lbs 13 oz

And here's an updated pic of the two of them sleeping together which they absolutely love doing. They sleep much better when they are next to each other.

Those hats are ADORABLE!!! I'm so glad to see that they're getting big, and I will keep my fingers crossed for you that they are both home soon.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. It makes me feel a little better to hear the stories of people with wonky screening tests and fine results, in the end.

They are too cute! And YAY that Tommy might come home--that's great! I'll be thinking of all of you this weekend and hoping that Liam catches up soon so you can all be together full-time. ((HUGS))

Those boys are SO adorable!!!! I'm so happy for you! That is so precious that they love to sleep together - do they make extra large cribs for multiples, I wonder?

Heather, If you get a chance would you email me at lcobb421@sbcglobal.net? I have a random pa question to ask if you don't mind. :-)

Hope you are getting a little bit of sleep.
