6 Weeks Old

The bottle feeding continues to go well.  They have upped Brooklyn to 4 bottle feedings a day, more if she is rooting for her bottle at feeding time.  She now takes her entire bottle each time.  Tayden took 40 mL and 35 mL today.  They have upped his bottle feedings from 1-3 per day.  Brooklyn now weighs 5 lbs. 6 oz. and Tayden is back at 5 lbs. 15 oz. after losing a little fluid due to the medication - which served its purpose.  If Brooklyn continues to progress she could be home in as early as a week to a week and a half!!!  I now need to kick it into high gear and make sure I have everything ready here at the house for her arrival.  Our next purchase which will make their homecoming seem very real is the carseats, which we will get this weekend.  The hospital will ask us to bring the carseats up when the babies are close to ready so that they can place the babies in them for around an hour to make sure that they can do well in them - with no breathing episodes.  The end is definitely in sight!!!!
