Thursday's Update / And the winner is...

Hi everyone! Today was a great day. All four babies are doing very well. Sam, Sofi, and Naty have adjusted to the routine at home, and look forward to their feedings every three hours. Dan, Tere, Nana, and I all work together on the daytime feedings, and we do two person shifts at night. The magic feeding times are 1, 4, 7, and 10 PST. They are sooo cute looking all around when you feed and play with them. Tomorrow is their second pediatrician appointment to make sure they are gaining weight. They've almost doubled what they were eating in the hospital last week (from under 30 mL to 50-60 mL per feeding), so we're hoping that means they are on track. :)

We saw Matthew tonight, he is as cute as ever and is holding his own ... no supplemental oxygen, and normal temps in the open air crib. The last goal is still eating consistently without the IV and the docs think this will just click one day. Most babies learn this at 35-36 weeks, which would be sometime in the next week for him. The doctors keep reassuring us that he is right on schedule and not to worry, the three at home are just overachievers.

For all of the Nana fans out there, Nana is doing great. She recouped well from the long flight to Phoenix, and had a really nice swim this morning. She has been a star feeder (mostly feeding her namesakes Sofia Nina and Samuel Martin). And she cooked us all a chicken dinner tonight, yum!

We'll post more pictures tomorrow, which is the official beginning of what would be week 35. Thanks for all of the posts!!!

And now to the winner.... The winner is

Mr. Uncle DJ

p.s. We did NOT pick him just because we thought this picture was hilarious. Whut? Hope you are having a great honeymoon Deej and Em, we miss you!!

Let us be the 1st to protest this huge injustice! We all know DJ just copied my correct guess! Anyways, Dad and I ditto the well wishes, but do not concur on the outcome of the contest. Tell Nana to get lots of Natalia time, too...she never plays favorites, as we all know! Love you all.

Grammy and Grandpa were disqualified for guessing twice! Auntie Em compared the pictures very carefully.

Glad to see everyone is doing well and Nana is enjoying her visit. Sorry we missed the contest as we were out of town and out of touch. Good to be back blazing a bleezy and blogging with the babies. It doesn't get any better than this. The pictures and updates are wonderful and we look forward to seeing you soon. Love the McCoy's.
PS. Go Michigan and go Lions!
