Justin and I have truly been blessed so much! We were blessed with quadruplets but 2 have became our guardian angels! We know our baby boys, Addison and Levi are watching down, helping God take care of us and Wesley and Cooper. This is the start of our journey so I have decided to make this blog for updates of all of the emotions and excitement that will happen along the way! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers! Thanks to everyone for all of the congrats.! We are so excited and are thankful to have great family, friends and community that are wanting to help us! No one will ever understand how much it means to us! If it's your first time visiting our blog, start at the bottom and work your way up, or on the right hand side you can look by date.
We got to the NICU on Monday morning and there were the sweetest notes on Cooper and Wesley's beds. Their nurse Emily had arts and crafts on sunday night with the boys. They both wrote Justin and I little notes saying they loved us and thanking us for visiting them every day. It also said "Today I am 2 weeks old." YAY!! Not long after getting there that morning I got to hold Cooper before they told us the boys were graduating to NIC2. Which is just a less intensive care unit for babies. We are very excited for the boys to make the move to their new room together in the NIC2. By Monday night when Justin and I arrived the boys were snug in their beds sleeping in their new room.
Last Tuesday Cooper decided to give us a little scare and come down with a infection. He had lots of test run and was quickly started on antibiotics. The doctors stopped his feedings for 24 hours while the test came back. By the next day he was feeling much better. Although not happy at all about not being able to eat. This Monday we got the good news that Cooper made it to 3lbs!! This week has been better for Cooper but we learned quick that any day can be going great and all of a sudden take a turn for the worse. We are just so happy Cooper is feeling better and he is tolerating his feedings well so he can grow big and strong.
Cooper decided to open his eyes.
Wesley doesn't like to keep the oxygen on his nose.
Wesley had a uneventful week last week. Which in the NICU is a good thing for the most part. He didn't join the party his brother Cooper was having. Thank goodness because I don't believe Justin and I could have handled the worry and stress of both of our babies going through all those test at the same time. This week Wesley has been doing well but he has had a couple spells and the doctors decided to put his oxygen back on to give him a little more time. On the other hand he is up to full feedings and starting to gain weight.
We are so proud of both of our little boys and know they are little fighters. We are so blessed!
