Moving right along! (1 week 6 days old)

It's amazing how time can go so fast and so slow at the same time! One week I'm home all the time and the next I'm never home....funny how that happened. Fortunatly I'm feeling really good, I think it's partially due to the 40 pounds that I've lost so far!
The girls are still in the NICU, they will be there for at least another couple of weeks. They are doing fantastic, I've been told that they are above average, which of course I knew they would be!!! Rogue is officially back to her birth weight, plus some! She is still having the occasional spell of her heartrate being too slow and not breathing but overall is plugging right along. Jade is also doing pretty good, she surpassed her birth weight as well:) She has been having the most spells, although she drops her oxygen level as well as her heartrate. The doc thinks that it's reflux causing it and that she will grow out of it, hopefully that will happen sooner than later! Phoenix hasn't reached her birthweight but she did have the farthest to go:) She's been tolerating feedings well and is gaining weight so now it's just a matter of time! Here's some pics of the girls:

Last week the grandparents finally got to hold their grandbabies not that they were eager to do so or anything......
