We get to hold them once a day for about one-two hours. It is heaven on earth!!! We cherish every second we get to touch them. It is so hard not being able to cuddle with them all day long. This is a picture of us holding them for the first time on day three. I am holding Jake and Kevin is holding Ben.

Jake and Ben are absolutely gorgeous and your faces show such love. They will continue to grow and flourish with each day. There will be a day many years from now as you are getting them out of or correcting whatever mischief they can get themselves into when you will stop and remember all that they and you went through these past months. You will thank God once more for blessing you with these beautiful boys as you are taking them in the house to give them a good talking to and clean up duty. ;-)

Love to you and your beautiful boys.

I'm so glad they are doing well. They are absolutely beautiful boys. You did good, mama and daddy!

Please continue to update when you can. I know this is stressful but sounds like they continue to exceed all expectations and are doing as well as preemies can do.

I hope you are healing from your section, Danielle. Don't forget to take care of you, too!

This is the quiet before the storm, hehe (the "storm" being when the babies come home). Take advantage of it. I know it's hard but it's OK if you're not there every minute, or if you take a half or even whole day to yourself. You're not a bad parent if you take a little time for you. You have been through a lot...you NEED it! If not, you will wish you had later on. Trust me!

I'm just so pleased that things are going well.

Sincerely,

Congratulations on your two beautiful baby boys! I just found out about this site, so have been spending my morning reading all of your postings - laughing and crying along the way.

I couldn't be more happier that the boys are doing so well and look forward to the day you bring them home and we can meet them in person!

Love you both-
Kim and Cavitt

The boys look great! Auntie Nikki and Grandma sent me some pictures and they are just too cute w/ all that hair. I am so happy they are so healthy. In no time they will be home keeping the two of you up late for all of those little late night snacks.
Take Care,
Liz
