One Week Old

We decided to put the babies together this morning.  We figured after a week of being apart, they were looking for each other.  It was really sweet!  Mimi did the holding and I did the picture taking. 

Identical??? I think not!

 After they snuggled and smelled each other, they got comfy.

I fed Ellie this morning and had better luck than I did yesterday morning.  Mom fed Elissa and didn't have such good luck.  She's our better eater, so I don't know what was up with that.

Elissa, this morning, one week old!!!

Ellie, this morning, one week old!  (these iphone pics are not too great)

When we left them about 1:00 today, they were both snuggled up with their paci's, especially Elissa.



And just because Ellie got face time yesterday, here's Elissa last night when I was with her.

The news today was about the same.  The doctor says they both look better than they did yesterday, so that's good I guess.  Another day in the books.  Elissa has had no more apnea and she said we would mark that off the list, too!  Thank goodness.  Ellie did gain a little back, Elissa stayed the same weight.  Elissa does still have a heart murmur today, so an ECHO was ordered but it may be in the morning before we hear from it.  The doctor said it would close on it's own and probably in about 2 weeks.  It would be nothing that would keep her from coming home.  

We will go back again tonight at 8:00.  I feel a little better today, but we are just all worn out.  Again, thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.  We're going to make it, one baby step at a time!!!
