Friday & Saturday (4/4 & 4/5)





I'm sorry I didn't get anything posted yesterday it's not because nothing has happened. First of all the kids are doing good. Both of them have increasing levels of bilirubin (jaundice) nothing to worry about but they are on phototherapy. They have been slowly reducing the amount of oxygen that they are delivering by cpap and they are both doing good with that. I didn't mention it prior but Jaysek was born with his left eye still fused shut and it was pretty exciting today when it finely opened. Jaime's recovery has been very good as well. She has been up moving around and they said she will be discharged on Sunday.

Jensyn not being out done by her bigger brother also in phototherapy but she prefers to sleep on her belly.




Friday Jaime was able to get up and around a little so this allowed her to spend some quality time with the kids. Here she is taking Jensyn's temperature.


She got to enjoy her first of many diaper changes. Don't worry I haven't missed out on the joy of diaper changing.


Uncle Jeremy and aunt Jen made the trip out to see the new additions to the family.



Uncle Carson and to be aunt Caitlin stopped in to show there support.


On Saturday Jaime got to hold Jaysek for the first time ever. It was one of those magic moments.



One more thing that's been taking up a lot of our time is that Jaime started pumping the life giving milk. I haven't got her talked into letting me take a picture yet but when I do be rest assured I'm not going to post it.

You both look like such naturals at this whole parenting thing! Glad your little miracles are healthy and that you finally got to hold them.
