3/5/92 — Our NICU Journey Day 110

March 5, 2011

Isaac — 1397 (3 pound mark) grams

Molly — 1709 grams

 

Here's Kenn giving Isaac a bath for the first time. I have not included the shot where Ike is screaming his head off (partly because it is a bit too revealing), and opted instead for his "woe is me", usually he used to hands, one on either side of his head. He looks a bit shocked here by the whole procedure, and his eyes could pierce right through you. Both babies were gaining weight pretty consistently now; about 20 grams a night on average.

Isaac

Isaac, you are such a big boy now — over three pounds. Daddy gave you a bath for the first time today. You both looked very cute. He did a good job and got you nice and clean. You are such a beautiful boy now, such a handsome fellow. I love to look at your little face. You look so much like your good-looking Daddy.

Molly

Daddy and I started wallpapering your room. He just gave your brother a bath for the first time and now he’s going to bathe you. You are over 1700 grams now, so you will probably be pretty close to that four-pound mark when you come home on Tuesday. We are going to meet your pediatrician tomorrow morning and learn how to use the monitor you will be on at home. I hope we’ll be good at all the things we have to do to take care of you. You will have to be patient with us, girl.
