Still going strong

Just wanted to report that Rachel is still on the nasal cannula and doing well. She has made it through the first 36 hours. We hope she will continue to do well. I enjoyed holding her tonight and enjoyed snuggling with her. Haley is also doing well. The occupational therapist fed her again today and she took 9 cc's. She seems to be getting the hang of drinking out of the bottle and I'm sure the amount she takes will increase with more time and experience. Haley is so adorable. She makes cute faces and baby noises. It sounds like she is trying to "talk". Our girls are so precious and we again express our gratitude for them in our lives.
