Just called the ISCU this AM. Adam and Noah both weigh in at 1715grams!!! That's 3lbs. 12oz! Here's to hoping Adam hits 4 pounds by Monday. Think he will? He's not that far off.

According to the nurse, Adam ate at 4:30AM. He was wide awake and looking around since 5AM, and it was 7AM when I called. Wow! :-) Does he know he needs to sleep??? LOL!

thanks! :-) we've been rushing around getting all the supplies together. I'm nervous and happy at the same time. He'll be 35 and 1/2 weeks old (gestationally)! He LOVES to be awake and looking at everything around him. Can't wait to get him home! :-) I'd love for Noah to come home with him, but Noah needs to prove that he can be off of the cannula without desatting. He only goes down to 80 now. Not bad!
