Just wanted to send a quick weights update before we leave for the hospital to visit the kids.
Danna Lynn - 2 lbs, 9 oz
Laine Ryan - 3 lbs, 11 oz
Forrest Michael - 5 lbs, 10.7 oz
Pius James - 5 lbs, 14 oz
They are all doing great and so are mom and dad. My baby sister, Rachel, got into town on the 19th and will be here until the 23rd. She got to meet her godson, Forrest. Oddly enough, it seems he has been the only one awake every time we go visit (I guess his roommate, Laine, was up a few times, too). He must know who he needs to impress already!
The babies had their eye exams for ROP (retinopathy of prematurity) on Wednesday. Because oxygen is so damaging to preemies' eyes, they sometimes struggle with vision later in life. But good news... the 3 boys don't need to be checked again until the age of 2. Danna's eyes were good too, but they are going to recheck in two weeks because of her size and her eyes were not fully vascularized yet.
Thanks for all the great comments! They keep us going.
Billy, Moni, Rachel, Pius, Forrest, Danna and Laine
