Good Eaters!

It was a great day today!!! Like their mommy and daddy...our babies LOVE food! All three were introduced to 1 bottle and/or breast feed. This morning I was able to nurse Wyatt and Jessy Grace and both did great! The lactation consultant was amazing and said by the time I leave we will have it down on how to nurse all three. Whew, I am glad she has the confidence!! The fact the babies did so well is so important because that is main goal, the can suck, breathe and swallow at the same time. Lots of coordination for these little guys...BUT they did well today!! After the morning feed Jack and I headed back to the room to pack. Man we had basically moved in and it was quite entertaining to see how much we had accumulated! We had lots of family come visit today before we left, my Mom, Mimi & Papa, Alex and Clay, Dad and Kathy and David. We headed to lunch this afternoon and then came back for Abigail's feeding. She did great too and the nurses said if they continue to feed well over the next 24 hours they will more than likely get their IV's removed!! That would be fantastic! Because their feeds are increasing so much they are getting the nutrients they need, so they won't need their IV's.

Here are a few pictures from today:
