The boys are progressing nicely. Both are gaining weight (joy!) and their sucking reflexes are developing slowly so hopefully next week we can start bottle feeding. They still have episodes where they forget to breathe but that is normal for premature babies. They start breathing on their own again in seconds. Tonight Steve went to a concert and Gretchen went to a slumber party at her cousin's house so I went to the hospital at night. It was a mad house. They had seven babies in the NICU (including another set of twins). It was a good reminder to me that it happens all the time (premature births). It also made me appreciate how well our boys are doing considering the circumstances. I have posted more pictures and a little video of Sean.
