Babies and Blankets

The girls continue to thrive. They both had a good day today. When we visited them today they were both sleeping soundly. Rachel and Haley continue to tolerate the CPAP. They don't seem to mind it anymore. We found out today that Haley weighs 5 lbs and Rachel weighs 4 lbs 11oz. They sure are growing fast!

Rachel wearing her turkey hat. Here she is sleeping with her mouth open. So cute!

We were surprised when we arrived home today and found a package on our doorstep. Inside the box were 2 beautiful handmade blankets. The blankets were from a very kind person here in the Houston area. It is always so nice to see there are so many great people out there who are so kind and thoughtful. This to me exemplifies the true love of Christ, showing such kindness to someone you don't even know. A big thank you for the time put into making these beautiful blankets. A big thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers on our and our children's behalf.


  1. Those weight gains are awesome! Isn't that more than double their birth weights? The boys didn't weigh much more when they left the hospital.

  2. I'm impressed with their weight! The girls can control their temperature, they are gaining a lot of weight, soon will be breathing without help and feeding independently. This is very close to going home. Haley is looking beautiful in her pink outfit, and Rachel's turkey hat is so cute! What a beautiful family you have! The blankets are simply BEAUTIFUL!!! Congratulations and thank you for taking the time to share the news with us! All of you are in my heart and prayers. Love, Claudia

  3. Oh my gosh their weight is fantastic. What a Joy to see these two little ones thrive and move forward in their health and we all know you two are so looking forward to them coming home. I hope that day will be very soon! I love those little hats the girls are wearing how cute!! And those 2 blankets are so Beautiful too! Lots of Prayers coming your way from one who cares and believes in God's Miracles.

  4. I'm so glad they're adjusting to the CPAP!! I agree, their weight gain is awesome!! They'll be home before you know it! Those blankets are beautiful, I can't wait to see photos of your darling girls wrapped up in them. Thank you for taking the time to share your beautiful family with us.

    Praying for you always,

    blankets are so sweet - someone thought about your babies all the while they were making them - that is genuine love of fellow man (or babies)!
    much happiness and love to you all!
