I'm back! Well, at least mostly. =] The twins decided that they wanted out, so they were born on Saturday night. They were only 33 weeks along, so they were born tiny. *More inside*

Oh cutiepie, I can feel the excitement AND relief in your words. I'm so glad the boys are doing so well. Won't be long now. The triplets only spent about 24 hrs in a crib before coming home. They all came home together on Valentines day of last year. They weighed 4lb.2oz, 3lb.12oz, and 4lb.4oz when they came home. No moniters or special equipment. I will continue to pray for your family. I'm sure they will be home very soon. And you get as much rest as you can now. I know life with 3 boys. They will exhilarate and drain you at the same time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You needed some more!!!!!!!!!!Keep us posted.

cutipie, I am so excited for you and the boys - that is such great news - they are growing so well and it is great tht Danny is wearing his pj's and transitioning to the crib - Tommy will follow - it sounds like they really don't have all the trouble that some NICU babies do or you are hiding that part from us - and no worries over the exclmation points with me - I use them and abuse the real formation of this language and it's structure all the time. Hehehe! Thank you so much! *4U

You're getting closer to bringing those beautiful twins home, cutiepie. So pleased to hear that they are doing so well. I can just picture Danny wearing tiny pyjams - what color are they, haha! And you use as many exclamation marks as you want sweetie, if you can't use them for something as fantastic as this, then when can you use them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for keeping us posted, as Danny's and Tommy's *Cute* family we have a right to know when something this monumental happens, hugs and a flower for you sweetie, and take care. Love you.

Hey, all you adopted "Cute" Aunties, Grandmas, Nanas and Godmothers! We have good news: Danny is wearing pyjamas!! That means that they are going to try and transition him from the Isolette (incubator) to a regular crib. If he keeps up his body heat by himself and doesn't start losing weight, he is one step closer to coming home with me!!!! Since Tommy is still so much smaller, they are holding off a few days before they try it with him as well. Both boys are eating very well and haven't had to have a feeding tube inserted. I don't know what he weighed in at tonight, but last night, Danny was 3 lbs. 15.3 oz, so he's creeping right up on that 4 lb mark. I'm so excited!! And no, I don't think I am abusing the exclamation points here. When news is this good, there can not be too many exclamation points in use!

by tmjanecek 28 Mar 2008

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I think that we are probably more excited to hear the news than you! LOL!
I was concerned about you and just last night I noticed that someone here at Cute mentioned that there were updates about your situation in sick's forum. Well, I searched for a couple of hours, but didn't find it... Any way, I am glad that you are doing well and that your new babies are too.
Well, the NICU can be a roller coaster ride, so I wish your family and your new baby boys the best of luck... It won't be long, but soon they will be taking 8 bottles a day (and breast if the Dr says it is okay). Teresa

I think it is great that you named one Tommy.. did you know and name him that because he was a twin? (that's one of the accepted meanings of the name Thomas... it is actually a common name in my family) Or was it in the plans before you knew 'he' were a 'they'?

1 comment
cutiepie by cutiepie 31 Mar 2008

Actually, yes and no. I was considering Thomas as a name before I found out there were two. I then decided to go with Daniel, and then when I found out that "Twin" was one of the accepted meanings of the name Thomas, that clinched it for me. He had to be Thomas/Tommy.

So glad to hear everything went so well. I'm sure the boys will be home in no time. I posted a pic of my GDs hoping you'd get a glance at them, and it could ease your mind. It's in the Projects section. You take care and try to rest as much as possible. It's probably your last chance for a lot of years. I am the mother of 3 boys so I have a good idea what your future holds. Rest whenever you can. Hope to see you back here real soon.

Keep safe and well, I am going to go now and get all soppy and teary because newborn babies do that to me, I just want to take them all home. Big hugs and kisses for the moments while your precious treasures are in their cribs.

Yippee, so pleased to hear your fantastic news cutiepie, and a really big welcome to Danny and Tommy. I feel like I know them already, and I'm looking forward to seeing a photo soon. It's been a long few weeks since you first wrote and asked for our thoughts and prayers, sweetie, and it must have seemed like an eternity to you and your DH. And now everything has worked out really well, those beautiful twins will soon be big and strong enough for you to take them home, then Liam can play the *big* brother part! You take care of yourself, cutiepie, and give those twins a hug and kiss from me. Love, hugs and a whole bouquet of flowers for you sweetie.

They were delivered via C-section because I had already delivered Liam that way and my doctor didn't want to risk tearing the old scar. Danny was born first, and weighed in at 3 lbs. 14 oz. Tommy came second, but not without a fight. He apparently liked his "built-in pool" and it took some tugging to get him to come out. Boy, can I feel the results of that tug-of-war now! He weighed 3 lbs. 6 oz. Both are 15 1/2 inches long. Their lungs were developed well enough that they didn't require ventalators or anything. They just need to gain some weight so that they can maintain their own body heat. They are darling (what else would a mother say?) and I hated to have to leave them behind in the NICU when I was discharged, but I know that is the best place for them to be right now. I take in breast milk for them every day, and get to hold them for about 30 minutes each (then they have to go back into their Isolettes for warmth). I think I will post a picture of them in the project section soon, since they have been my major project for the past 8 months or so. =D
