Kangaroo Who?

Tonight we got to "kangaroo" the twins. This means that we held them on our bare chests. Studies have shown that kangaroo care helps improve the babies' oxygen saturation, heartrates, etc. All four of us enjoyed it tonight. The babies slept peacefully, and they were so warm and snuggly. Hank weighed 4 lbs. 6.6 oz. and Hayden weighed 3 lbs. 15.4 oz. Hank sucked down his entire bottle of 38ml in about 15 minutes. We found out today that he has a heart murmur. It could be caused by a flap valve that isn't closing or a hole in one of the filling chambers. It's a wait-and-see thing, so that's what we'll do. Hopefully, it will resolve itself in the coming months. Please keep all of us in your prayers!
