The big news for the day is that the boys came off the warmer!! This means that even though they are still very small, they are able to maintain thier own body temperature, which is a prerequisite to going home. So far, they have come off the oxygen, come off thier IV's, and now they are off the warmer. The only thing left for them to do is learn to eat really well. They have to take all of their feedings by mouth and still gain weight and we will be able to go home! Right now they take bottles for 2 out of 6 feedings and they only make it through about half of the bottle before their time is up and we have to give it to them through their feeding tubes. We make progress every day though, so I have no doubts we'll be sucking down the whole bottle in no time at all.
The other great thing about coming off the warmer is that Eli and Landon can now wear clothes. Mom finally gets to dress them in matching outfits!! Just the thought makes me excited. Nevermind the fact that I've already been told we'll be on baby house arrest until the end of RSV season (late April) and no one will actually see all of their adorable clothes. I can at least take pictures though.
So...we had a mini photo shoot tonight in the NICU and here are a few shots of my precious boys:
