Isaac — 1072 grams
Molly — 1440 grams
This is Molly in an open crib. The cribs weren't exactly homey; with metal bars, they seemed more like a baby jail than a baby bed, but it was still more baby like than an isolette. And we knew that home was one step closer. The entire staff agreed that Molly was ready for the open crib, but Ike's nurse Jill had to fight for him to move. She kept saying that he was little, but old and that he was really acting like a big baby. In the end, she won a trial period for him. She was a fierce advocate for both babies, but particularly for Isaac. She really believed in him. Stay tuned to see how he did.
You had a big surprise for us today. You are in an open crib. What a big boy! Jill fought for you and fought for you and said you could handle it.
And the big news is — you are in a crib. It’s not a very friendly crib, all metal, but it is a crib all the same, just like a real baby crib.
