Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Hayden's finally drinking a bottle!!! Her nurse gave her one this morning, and she did really well with it - took the whole thing. So, I gave her another one this evening, and she sucked it down in 10 minutes. Hank is still enjoying his bottle. Jay finally got his first poopy diaper tonight. It was great! At first, Hank's diaper was only wet, and the second Jay touched him with the wet wipe, he started pooping and didn't stop. It got on Jay's hand and Hayden's leg. It was everywhere! I loved it and even broke out the video camera. The kids are going to hate me when they're older! They are doing really well and are on even less oxygen today. I'm not sure Hayden really needs her oxygen, since her prongs stay out of her nose. She's constantly pulling them out, so I don't think she's getting very much benefit from it. She weighed 3-15 again, and Hank went up to 4-8. It looks like they might be coming home within the next 2.5 to 4 weeks. Please pray for them to continue to progress well toward coming home, especially without oxygen or monitors or anything. Thank you all so much!
