Wow! They've come quite a long way from 1#9oz and 1#11oz back in June. Now they are nice and healthy at 7#1oz for Kennedy and 6#12oz for Drake. Today was a perfect day for sweats and football with daddy. He spent time holding Drake and then Kennedy. Drake is quite the snuggler and he has even figured out how to get the nurses to come hold him. If Brian and I run to grab a quick bite to eat, we return to a happy boy in a nurses arms. When he gets fussy, the second you pick him up he stops.
We're all making progress. Not only do I have good news about the babies steady weight gain, I also made it through my 1st day in a week without spontaneously crying. Brian and I got our flu shots today. Our arms are a little sore but the protection it provides for our little angels is well worth it. After seeing all of the pokes Drake and Kennedy have endured in their short lives, we would certainly not complain about a shot. We have officially entered RSV season which is an extremely dangerous time for preemies. We wish we could share them with family and friends once we leave the hospital, but unfortunately that will not be possible. A simple cold that a healthy person isn't aware they are carrying could be life threatening to our babies with their lack of immune systems.
