Berry Berry Busy


Our twin girls arrived a little early at 33 weeks and 4 days. They're getting bigger day by day since they blessed us with their arrival. This blog is to document their amazing feats since we know they'll grow up entirely too fast.

Quick Update

I had a few moments so I thought I would post a quick update. Pardon the brevity. Leave comments if you need more details!
* Minerva Leane Thornberry was born at 5:51am on 6/8/2010 - she was 4 lbs 2 oz and 17.5"
* Evelyn Josephine Thornberry was born at 5:52am on 6/8/2010 - she was 3 lbs 15oz and 17"
* They are both incredibly beautiful, just like their Mom
* They are progressing *very* well
* Mina is completely off breathing support of any kind
* Evie is due to come off the cannula this afternoon (the last of the breathing supports)
* They both had a habit of grabbing the breathing stuff when they were on and pulling them off. I think this shows incredibly good hand-eye cooridination at what is essentially an almost negative age. ;)
* We have been rapturous having our Kangaroo Time (laying the baby on our chests, skin to skin contact) with Mina and should be able to start Kangaroo time with Evie tonight or tomorrow!

It was wonderful seeing you guys and getting to meet the girls last night. Seth gets extra man points for being so enamored with his babies. Tara gets extra momma points for being so sprightly and big-hearted. Love you guys!

Thanks for the update, Seth! They are so sweet... and obviously very smart! Take advantage of the nurses as much as possible before you go home! :-)
