We are so proud of our girls! All three girls did great on their bottle assessments so they will start to introduce it more and more. We were able to feed Anna and Natalie their bottle yesterday and today. Anna did well for me, but Natalie had a harder time staying awake for both me and Chris. Elisabeth just got to try the bottle for the first time late this afternoon so we were not there, but heard she did well!
We are also so excited as they were able to put Anna and Natalie together in a crib. They are both out of the warming beds so they were able to put them together (and wear their cute outfits). This is something we really hoped they would be able to do as it really benefits them to be together (and will help them stay warm). Elisabeth is growing fast, and will hopefully be able to join them in the next few days.
Natalie is still needing her caffeine every morning to keep her breathing well (like a lot of adults I know :)). They tried weaning her off it a few days ago and she was not ready. Pray that she will be able to breathe without it soon.

They are fast learners! How sweet is the picture of Anna and Natalie together! It won't be long until Elisabeth will be sleeping right next to them.

Kim your words and photos bring tears to my eyes. I can't believe you have the strength to blog. We are praying for the girls and your strength. Keep up the awesome work mom.

Those are the most beautiful pictures yet! The girls look so happy sleeping together! I can't wait to see Elisabeth snuggled in there too! A little funny note: Cade was on caffeine in NICU and he has absolutely loved coffee since the day I gave him a sip of mine. :-) We love you guys so much! Wish I was there to bring you some good to-go snacks and drinks at RMH. Take care of yourself! Cast your cares on the LORD and He will sustain you!

Love ~ Jeanette (Jody :-)
