My babies are turning 1 week old!

Just a picture update of the little tikes in intensive care:

1 day old:
Jake off the CPAP mask temporarily until he later needed to be back on it. Mommy got to peek at what he looked like for a couple of hours.
Notice the size of the pacifier and the size of the baby?

Two days old:
Jake on the CPAP mask to help him breath. Daddy's company actually produced it!
Mr. Cool Dude in the isolet getting his UV treatment for jaundice.

Three days old: HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
Look, I've got my arms spread just like Mr. Bat and Skeleton!
My heart ached every time I saw him...

Four days old:
Jake finally feeding from the bottle. I think they started him off on 1tsp. He started to stop breathing with more than that since he's not coordinated yet for feeding and breathing.
Jake, looking like his daddy. He was too tired to fully open his eyes.
Look, little booties on my hands! I bet the nurses finally got sick of me pulling off those wires...

5 days old:

Jake in good spirits now he has no mask and also now 1 less wire running into his bellybutton. He's also sporting his booty on his hands.
Sam, the little squirmy stinker.

6 days old:
Jake is eating 12ml of milk now. His brother is drinking 7ml, but actually is 3 grams heavier than his birth weight now! What did Jake do today? His first poop! The nurse just commented on how they have been waiting for him to do that, and on his next change...what did they get? A big messy surprise! And he didn't even fuss when she changed him, the little angel.
Daddy spending time with the babes.
Sam, the Hawkeye fan.
Sam got his catheter removed from his bellybutton and put into his arm for sterile purposes. They say I should be able to hold him tomorrow!!! I can't wait!!!!

All those milestones in just one week! That is so HUGE! So funny to see their personalities develop right before your eyes, isn't it? I can only imagine how excited you are to cuddle them.
