Still No Babies!!!

Another week has passed and we still haven't gotten to take any home. It is so frustrating to go down there and ask the nurses how Ethan is doing. He just isn't consistent. One day he will do fine and the next he is struggling again. Up and Down. Back and Forth. It is so frustrating. We went and visited them on Sunday and talked to the doctor. As of right now Peyton has passed Ethan up and we are planning on him coming home this weekend. I'm not going to hold my breath. He is doing wonderful. He hasn't had any drops in 3 or 4 days and he is eating like a pro. He just went into an open crib on Saturday, so hopefully he will stay stable this week. I will be really upset if he doesn't make it this weekend. I just need some glimpse that this will end soon. The drives back and forth are really getting old and expensive. I do know that it is better for them to stay in the hospital until they are really ready though. We don't want to make it any harder on ourselves than it already will be. I will keep everyone posted on Peyton. He was the slowest at growing and seemed like he would never catch up. All of the sudden he just changed. He went from 3rd or 4th in line all the way to the front. The only thing keeping him from coming home sooner is his weight. He is only 4lbs. 2oz. Hopefully he will be good to go this weekend. Everyone pray that he will behave this week.

I am glad to hear Peyton is doing so well. What are you going to with that Ethan?
Bless your hearts. I can only imagine what kind of toll the drive is taking. Hang in there! You both are in my prayers. (As well as the babies).

I can't believe little Peyton has passed everyone up!!! All of the babies are so beautiful and I can't wait until you get all of them home! I'm having baby withdrawals...I need to feed another one, and another one, and another one....!!!!!!
