The boys are doing really well. Landon decided on Thursday that he was ready for the bottle and just sucked three down in one day. He also did very well Friday. And while this is a good thing, I became very afraid that Landon would be released before Eli and then I would have an infant to care for 24 hours a day and another in the NICU where I can't take Landon back to once he's released. Eli is just a lot smaller still and a little behind and the thought of him staying in that hospital without his brother just breaks my heart. I have really struggled with this the past few days and prayed and prayed for Eli to catch up and all of a sudden today, Eli drank a whole bottle. I think the neonatologist will do whatever she can to not separate the boys, but those insurance companies don't really love to pay to keep babies there unecessarily, so we continue to pray for Eli's progress. The boys are more alert these days and are growing each and every day. Eli weighs 3 pounds, 11 ounces and Landon weighs 4 pounds, 10 ounces.
This weekend has been great. Elizabeth is here and there are few people I have as much fun with than her. Dustin is also here and the boys just seem to do so much better when he's around - especially Eli. He is definitely going to be a daddy's boy.
Here are a few recent pictures of the boys
We have taken tons of pictures this week with Grammy, Sliz, and Daddy and I'll get those up soon.
