Rachel did regain her 3 lost ounces today and is back up to 7.5 lbs - this is good news for our peanut! Now we just have to work on keeping those feedings in her tiny body. She is still on all her meds and we are trying to feed her upright because the other suggestion the doctor gave us was to feed her smaller meals more often. Yea, right - how will that work with the 3 of them??
But for those of you who are wishing for triplets we must share the joys of screaming and spitting up. The other night Alyssa spit up all over Julianna's face - that was fun. Last night all 3 of them spit up in succession. It's truly rare for the girls to make it all the way through the night in the same sleepers. Speaking of nights the girls are generally eating around 10 and sleeping till about 3:30 on the best of nights. The worst of nights and there have been plenty we're up at 1:30 and then 5:30 - we really don't like those nights! As for the screaming - Alyssa does it about all evening long and tonight we even got to hear them all at once. It's great fun. If you don't like the sound of a baby screaming plese come over and hold one!
Just a note from Kaitlyn - she has posted on her door:
"Baby's R Fun - I hav 3"
And Caleb is still doing well with his sisters though he does LOVE to have attention from anyone who will give it to him. Hopefully the girls will become more interactive soon and he will enjoy entertaining them.
Here are the before and after pictures I promised.
