The Twins (mostly Bryson)
On Wednesday, I went to visit my sister. The girls went to play with K at the Ronald McDonald house. They hung out in the room because K had a cold. A didn't want to infect any of the children who stay at the Ronald McDonald house that have auto-immune disorders.
I got to go visit the babies with A. She got to do Kangaroo care with Bryson so most of the photos are of him - there are a few photos of Bennett in his isolette at the end. The shots above and below are of Bryson in his isolette.
Bryson startles as they take him out for A to hold. I think they are soooo cute - they look just like their Daddy (except they are cute and he is just an old person like me). ;)
Doesn't he look like he is smiling? So happy to be held by Mom. We are thrilled to bits as of today, the babies have strung almost ten stable days in a row - they are gaining weight steadily.
The above shot of A is perhaps my favorite shot I took of them. I wish I couldn't have taken prettier photos but the lights were low and I didn't use a flash so we wouldn't hurt their little eyes (they do have some retinopathy but it is relatively slight and the doctors are not concerned but they will keep an eye on it). So these shots are with maximum ISO and wides aperture.
I am fascinated by his little hand - notice all the fingers but his thumb are almost exactly the same length. Does anyone know, is that typical in preemies or is it a characteristic of Bryson?
The shot above and below are from the few pictures I took of Bennett in his isolette.
