Happy May.

Ian



I loved taking pictures of them this morning.  michael nursed today and did great!  I was so pleased.  Ian was sleeping and didn't want to nurse. I was at the hospital from 9:30-3:00.  Long day for me.  I loved getting to hold them though.  I was able to be with Michael during his cranial sector scan and we should have the results from the doctor tomorrow. Mike is going to come home late, late, late tonight.  tomorrow we're going to go see the boys and then pick up the kids and go to Nags Head.  We'll leave the kids with their grandparents overnight and have a night to ourselves back home.  Saturday morning we'll go back and hang with the boys.  I'm looking forward to Mike getting to hold the boys and I keep hoping that Michael will be alert as he has been!  He loves to look around and his eyes get so big and happy.  Ian is continuing to gain weight.  He's over 5 lbs., 8 oz. and Michael is now 4 lbs, 2 oz.  They're both growing so much.  I love snuggling them and rubbing their heads.  Libby often plays "hospital" at home and has two baby dolls that she calls Ian and Michael.  It's really sweet.  She pretends to feed them and tells me often that they're sleeping.  Today she told me, "Mommy, you have princess eyes."  I wonder if it's because I've been wearing make-up lately.  Anyway, just glad that things are going well.  I feel pain-free (can even sleep on my tummy) but I am so exhausted.  My house is clean.  I'm fed.  Life is good.

So sweet! Glad to hear they are doing better and better.

And I loved hearing Libby say you have princess eyes. It always makes my day when my girls tell me I look like a princess. Coming from them, that's a high compliment!
