Update On the Boys

They are doing very good. Zak is out of the heated isolette and Ryder is getting very close to being able to come out and go into a regular crib. They took off one of the monitors today so now they just have their feeding tube and heart rate monitors on. Today they allowed each of them to try and bottle feed. The nurses said that they did not take to the bottle, but did suck on it a little bit. This afternoon they allowed me to give each boy a chance to experiment with breastfeeding as well. Zak showed interest, but quickly fell asleep. Ryder was more awake and interested, but also got tired pretty quickly. But it was a good start for both of them. I will post new pictures of the boys as well. Today they weighed 4lb and 3lb 15oz.
