Happy birthday, little dragons

Today was such a special day as it was Maisie and James's one month birthday. We are so tremendously proud of the little dragons and all of their progress. We are so thankful for their continued healing, growing, and days without incidents.

Jimmy finally got to hold James, and it was definitely worth the wait. They sat together for an hour and a half, and before long it was time for James to go back to his isolette (or his very expensive tropical private island, as I like to think of it).

In other news, the babies have not been doing very well on their weight gain, so the doctors came up with a new strategy today. Maisie now will get high protein formula added to her breastmilk feeds, and James will have more frequent feeds and increase volume starting today. The goal is for the babies to sit tight, gain weight, and stay healthy for the duration of their NICU stay.


  1. Beautiful pictures! I'm so proud of the four of you and all you have accomplished.

    Love you,

  2. Erin,
