Being a proud mom of boys I always would have adamantly argued the opposite but lately Rachel has been sticking it to her brother Callum when it comes to progress these past few days. She learned to hold her own temperature, off of the incubator, and is now looking all snazzy in real clothing (can you believe how she just swims in tiny premie clothing?) More over she is starting to eat out of a bottle! The one thing slowing her down is she has her mother's anemia :( She might need a blood transfusion on Thursday... we are just waiting to see right now. But even if that happens that shouldn't slow down her progress!
While Callum may not be having such obvious milestones my littlest man is no slouch either!!! He finally has exceeded his birth weight. He is well on his way to joining his sister (he probably would be leading but she stole all the food in the womb). His blood levels are doing great and he has had no setbacks at all. We are just waiting for weight on him. I know one day he will be this tall football player so I try not to worry about him now. He really is doing great!
And of course not to be forgotten is my little Harmon. He is doing great. He takes it hard that he has to go to daycare part of the day. If it were not for Grandma Lisa helping out during the day and Gualita Carmen putting in time in the evening I don't know what we would do. He is such a sweet boy with such a great heart. All he ever wants to do is cuddle with Chris and I. He is such the love bug! He also is making some progress. As some of you might know he has a serious lack or want of speech but he is starting to verbalize a little. He always makes me so proud!
