We had a great day today! We were able to take and hold all the girls at the same time today! It was so sweet to have them reunited again, and it made some great pictures!
l-r Elisabeth, Natalie, and Anna
Natalie and Anna
The girls are all doing well. They are gaining weight, but just now getting up past their birth weight. Anna maintained her body temp by herself for a few days but then had a setback one night. They will try her again soon, but today Natalie was off the warmer getting a chance to maintain her body temp herself. Go Natalie!! Today they were also going to introduce the bottle to Anna and Natalie and see how they do! Elisabeth is still too small to try either, but she is gaining weight the best of the three so she should be there soon!

Since Anna was doing so well at maintaining her body temp we got to bring her an outfit. Unfortunately it only lasted one day- she had a cold spell that night.

Natalie found her thumb!
We have settled in at the Ronald McDonald House, and are so thankful that we are able to stay there. I stayed there all week and Chris came up every other day. We spend our mornings at the NICU, take a break early afternoon, and then go back to the NICU for the rounds around 4pm. Alex also spent a few nights with us this week and visited with the girls. He has been having a lot of fun with his grammy and gramka, though.
They still think the girls will need a few more weeks in the NICU. We can't wait to get them home, though!!
