One Tube Less!

Okay, so this is kind of a strange post... but we have just been so excited this week, as Matilda and Avery have been able to lessen their facial hardware! Yep, they have both been on room air this week, and are generally doing well. They have had a few "swings," as they call them, here and there... but we are so proud of them! Our next feat is to get rid of their nasal feeding tubes, and then they will be real-life babies!
Sleepy Matilda... she is such a doll!
Avery and her all-too-frequently-seen "stop blasting me in the eyes with the camera flash" scowl..sorry Avery, we just can't help it...you're too cute! She had previously sneezed out her feeding tube, so we just had to get a shot of her cute little face before they put it back in.
Matilda & Avery

When I peeked in on them during one of my visits, this is how they were sleeping--so cute! I just love how they don't mind being in each other's space. One of the nurses said that once, when she peeked in, Matilda's hand was in Avery's mouth and Avery was just sucking away!

I love the picture of the twins sleeping next to each other! Somehow it almost makes you feel kind of sad for all the babies in the world that aren't twins and don't have someone else right there starting life with them!!

You guys are amazing! We miss you and wish we could see the twins in real life and not just in pictures!!

Too bad you can't keep their tubes for their baby books... or can you?
