Here are a few questions that I have been asked and I am finally getting around to answering.
What is the support that you have in the swing with Michael?
The Snuzzler is the support that we use in our swing. You can buy it at Babies R Us and they are actually used for carseats. We love them!
Is the article accurate that the boys are identical?
Yes, the boys are identical. We implanted 2 embryos and 1 split 3 ways. The boys do not look identical yet and are growing into their "identicalness". The doctors told us this is normal for preemies.
What do you do when Mike has to go to work?
Mike is taking off work until December 28. I am lucky enough to have him home. He might not think he is lucky now. He actually made a comment that working was a lot easier.
Do you supplement your milk with anything?
I am still pumping and am not supplementing with anything. As you can see from the pictures the babies are getting enough fat and calories. For when they start out eating my pumping I have 2 deep freezers full of milk in the garage.
Do you have help?
Yes! We would not be surviving without our help. Our church sends people in constantly. We also have meals being brought in on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We also have NICU nurses that volunteer their time to come hang out with us. At night Mike and I work together. The babies are really good from midnight until 8:00 am. They wake up, eat, and go back to sleep. The days are harder because they like to be awake more. So, YES we have wonderful help.
