Well the twins survived their first colds. Avery woke up last Monday with congestion and a runny nose. It was so sad. My mom called me later that day and told me that my neice Kennedy had the flu. The kids had all been together over the weekend so I immediately convinced myself that Avery's congestion was the flu. Then my ICU nurse-mind went crazy and all I could do was picture my sweet baby girl in the hospital on the ventilator. (I know, so dramatic) After some guilt, tears, and a lot of worrying I realized that she was fine and it was most likely just a little cold. By Wednesday Carson had caught it. No fever or yucky cough, just lots of saline and suctioning. I think they are just about tired of the big blue suction bulb coming at their faces all the time! They are just about back to normal thankfully! Next time they get sick I will hopefully be a little less of a drama-mama!
Otherwise, we had a great week! Carson and Avery are 7 weeks old today. They seem so big to me already. Sunday night was the first night they slept 4 hours between feeds. It didn't last, Monday night they were back to waking up every 3. Avery's night time fussiness is getting better. We've discovered that the girl loves her swing. We can swaddle her up and put her in the swing and she will take a great nap! Carson has been wanting to be held a lot this past week. He usually is pretty content hanging out in his Boppy, but lately he has been wanting to be cuddled a lot, so sweet. He may have just been feeling a little yucky. I'm going to miss these days when they just want to be held all day long.
Now it's picture time!!
I promise they held hands all on their own, I didn't stage it.
She just doesn't like being on her tummy for very long.
Carson's head is still pretty wobbly, but he is starting to hold it up more.
