Cohen is now taking 1/2 ounce of breast milk every 3 hours and gets a bottle once a day. He loves to kick around and is stretching out every chance he gets. Mari held Cohen and bonded for about an hour this morning and I got to cuddle with him this evening.
Mari and Cohen
Noah is trying to get a little milk but his stomach is not digesting well right now so they are holding on his feedings until that clears up. Mari was able to hold him for quite a while today and he maintained his body temp the whole time.
Bonding with Noah
Sophia got a taste of breast milk today. I think she liked it better than I did! She requires her CPAP for breathing, but is doing well. Mari loved on her for a little yesterday while they got some cuddle time.
Finn is still on his ventilator, which is ok because he needs his rest so he can get stronger. At least we can now see his precious little face! They are planning to feed him milk tonight to see how he does. He seems to like to flex his right biceps; he has had this pose in nearly all of his ultrasounds!
Finn's Signature Pose
They all have full heads of fuzzy hair. Their hair is somewhere between brown and blonde, so we are taking bets on whose hair they'll get.
When I went to pick up our car from the mechanic this morning, I was surprised to learn that the babies were on Channel 11 news last night and a couple of times this morning! Then I went to the bank and explained my 4 wristbands to the cashier, who said she saw us on the news. We had no idea that that was going to happen! The babies have no idea how famous they already are. I think Grammy Goerlich may have had a little something to do with that. The mechanic and bank were the first stops on my long list of never-ending honey-dos.
Alright guys, you'll appreciate this one...I had the privelege of getting out of the hospital for a bit today - to buy a nursing bra! My father-in-law bailed on me and stayed in the car while I braved Motherhood Maternity. I'm staring at these sexy little numbers, trying to find the right size so I can quickly sneak out, but end up needing some help from the sales lady; as if she couldn't have guessed I would need help. Anyway, mission accomplished and plan to return tomorrow.
