Today was another day of anticipation but for me it was different. I know that the boys are getting bigger and stronger every day. You can see it when you look at them. Ultimately, growing means that they can come out of their 'condo' as one of the nurses labeled their isolette and that means they can be held EVERY day. This is huge as it means that I will be able to get my first real chance to hold one (or both) of them. Liza has held them multiple times and to see how calm they were is a joy that I could never possibly describe to someone else.
Overall, they have not had huge gains this week but they also haven't had any losses. This gave me the confidence to take my turn holding one of my boys. Liza and I decided that I would hold Shay today and she would hold Ciaran. We would do the opposite tomorrow. Anyway, no need to go into the blow by blow action reply...here I am with my son, Shay Brendan. I am so proud of both boys and I think they are awesome!

Here is Ciaran in his isolette.

Thanks for reading and praying for them!
