Sorry but this is going to be short.... it is late and I just typed a bunch and it somehow disappeared on me! Grrrr....

Luke - very excited to announce that he is doing better! He decided to start digesting his food today and really seems to have turned a corner almost overnight. He is up to 16 ml of Elecare and is up to 3 lbs 3.5 oz! Very exciting!!! He looks so much better today too. He really is starting to fill out more and is just as sweet as ever.

Max - he is also doing very good. However, he seems to be already developing quite the attitude. Which scares me since he shouldn't even be born yet and he has a wicked set of lungs on him. He is kind of known in the NICU now... people will say, "oh, that's Max. Can you hear him screaming?" I like to think he's just got a little extra fight in him! He is now up to 37 ml of breast milk and is about 4 lbs 5 oz! He is also really getting the hang of latching on. We are still just "practice" breastfeeding. He still gets his feedings by tube but we are just keeping him aware of what's to come!

I will post again soon. And add some pictures. I just lost my 'umph' when all that I wrote was suddenly lost. Good night :)
