I thought about naming this post "we are family," but decided I had no interest in posting that youtube video. Instead, and more fitting, I bring you my favorite things. Today was a pretty good day at the NICU. For their 7 week "birthday" we re-introduced Jack and Riley to themselves. It was interesting to see how calm Riley was, while even awake, next to her big brother Jack. And by big-brother, I'm referring to one minute, not the few ounces he has dangling over her head. Having them next to each other is something you can be certain we will do more often. Of course we can't wait until they are always next to one another.
We also got our first family photo today. What a great photo to have. Finally.
Jack and Riley both had good days. They had some more blood drawn in order to check their antibody levels. Jack, as you can see, is still off the nose candy. Though the road may still be long, I feel like we are starting to see the far end of the tunnel. I know they will be home before we know it.
Here are some photos and videos from today.
1st Family Photo (notice Jack holding Riley's hand and we didn't manufacture that)
