Errol got his tube out this morning and the drs ordered his carseat test and circumcision. The nurse said it's like feeding adifferent baby since that tubes out. It may have been bothering his throat and keeping him from wanting to eat. Guessing he'll be home this weekend or early next week!
Layla is moving along too. She can have a bottle at every feeding now and hopefully she will do well with that and get her tube out soon.
So proud of all of our little ones!

Errol is still growing and working on his bottle skills. He always takes the entire bottle when Adam is there but is very finicky most other times. H was moved to a crib today and they are talkig about removing his feeding tube and seeing how he does in the next couple days.
Layla is doing great too. She can take a bottle twice a day and is consistently finishing them. Just needs to pack some pounds on. She went off of her caffeine a few days ago and they are all three med free now except vitamins.

Errol is getting better with bottles and can now try a bottle with every feeding. He's a chunker at 5lb 10oz. He will hopefully be home next week or weekend.
Layla is progressing nicely too. They let her try a bottle for practice last night and she did well. They won't let her try at every feed because she's too small and will burn too many calories. They switched her tube feeds to over one hr instead of two hrs today so she's heading in the right direction. She's hanging right on the edge of three lbs at 2lb 15oz. Hopefully she will jump over tonight.

Avery is now 4lb 7oz. She got her feeding tube out today and is doing great with her bottles. She takes anywhere from 1 to 1.5oz at a time. She is very sweet and calm. Content just to lay and gaze around. The nurses say she could possibly come home this week or next!
Layla is now 2lb 13oz. She is tolerating her increased tube feeds well. Hopefully she will start bottles within the next couple of weeks. She's such a little sweetie. She makes the cutest faces and mouths. We held her and Avery side by side yesterday and they looked a lot alike. Both have a strawberry blonde tint to their hair. Can't wait to have them all home!

Errol weighs 4lb 13oz and is learning how to take a bottle. He has a lot of trouble with it though. The occupational therapist has been working with him. They say boys seem to have more trouble learning it than girls. He may have reflux like jozey did also.
Avery is now 4lb 3oz. She is doing great with her bottles. She is taking all of most of her feedings by bottle. Shouldn't be long before she's home.
Layla weighs 2lb 10oz. She is still on tube feedings by pump. The occupational therapist said that she can try bottles when she is over 3lb.
Can't wait to have our babies home! It'll be crazy, but so exciting.
