|Daddy holding Carter while changing the bedding|
We got to give them little baths last night and we changed out their bedding and the nurse told me to bring in two of our own receiving blankets. That calls for a little shopping.
When its dark outside, it's so hard for me to let go of their little hands and leave them for the night. My hormones are still going crazy and I cannot hold back all the tears. I pray over the little ones each night and something about talking to God makes me even more emotional. I'm doing my best to be really strong for them, but it is so hard; The hardest thing I think I have ever had to do.

They started getting two drops of my milk through a little tube. They get fed twice a day until they can start taking in more. Both babies have been pretty active, Luke a little more than Carter.
|See the big tube in my left wrist?|

I am getting discharged from the hospital today so I am very anxious to return to my own bed! I cannot drive for two weeks so I've made plans with mom and my mother in law to bring me up here each day and hang out until Sean gets off work to pick me up. This is going to be a struggle but I was reminded that I can come see the babies at any hour of the day, even 4am. I'm counting down the days babies...........11 weeks...........11 weeks......
