Happy 4th of July!
William and James are now two weeks old. They are both continuing to do really well. They are still at Wentworth-Douglas hospital in Dover, NH. Gwen and I have been spending most nights with them, to help the nurses look after them and work on their feeding ability. They are both doing well at that for babies their age (36 weeks now!), but William is doing a little bit better than James at the moment. There is a chance that William might be ready to be released by the end of the week if he keeps up his progress! However, they won’t come home until they both are, so it might be a bit longer than that before we bring them home.
I also went back to work this week, so naturally I had a lot of stuff to catch up on (my email in-box had over 1,000 messages in it!). Thanks to that, and the fact that my sister Sarah and brother in law Chris were here visiting, meant that the last week has been a bit of a whirlwind. Still, Gwen and I were able to make time to visit with Sarah and Chris, and to see the fireworks show in Portsmouth last night. I even got to spend a couple of hours at a game store near the hospital! All in all, we are having a very blessed 4th of July holiday.
As always, here are some more pictures:
