These past two weeks have been a whirlwind! We have really enjoyed our visits with our little sweethearts and miss them so much when we have to leave them. Despite the exhaustion (and they are not even home yet!) we feel so blessed to have all of our boys to love, love, love, love, love! It is amazing that in the past 2 weeks we have seen little personalities develop, milestones accomplished, and now when we visit the NICU we are on the boys' schedule in that we are part of feeding, changing (diapers and clothing), taking temperatures, etc. While we wish they could be with us all the time, being part of their daily rituals makes us feel more involved. Although we have a lot of ground to cover with 4, we have had some very special one-on-one time with each. Here are some pictures from the past couple weeks and we can't help but include more details as the very proud parents we are!
Aiden seems to be the most serious so far and the loudest :) As the nurses said, he will let you know when he wants something - well he was the first one out! While this might be true he spends a lot more time sleeping and cuddling than crying. He was the only baby I was able to see immediately after delivery. So far, Aiden looks the most like big brother Ethan and was the first to reach out his hand for Daddy while being held. On Sunday (9/20) he was moved to an open crib and is already trying to bottle feed. Here are some pictures of our our little rockstar (and no we did not position his fingers that way, what a snapshot)!
What a Cutie Pie!
