Last week Thursday Benjamin graduated to a crib and is enjoying his time with Kyle. They snuggle real close to each other and Kyle usually puts his hand on Benjamin. I’ve seen Kyle wrap his arm around Benjamin when he is crying. It is really cute. Benjamin also got put back on trigger assist CPAP over the weekend. On Sunday Benjamin got a bath in a small little bucket. It was so cute. However, he wasn’t very happy because he was really hungry and just wanted to eat! He is now up to 1710 grams or 3 lbs, 12 oz. He is getting cuter and cuter by the day. He loves to suck on his soother and the nurses say he actually has a stronger suck than Kyle. It will be nice once Benjamin can breastfeed and bottlefeed.
Kyle is getting to be a big boy now. You probably wouldn’t think so but compared to when they were born he is. He’s now just over 4 lbs. On Sunday, he went off oxygen for 24 hours. He went back on yesterday morning but kept pulling the prongs out so they were out half the time yesterday. Sunday he also got a bath in a big tub- he enjoyed it until Robert took him out of the water to wash his back. Then he did not like that. He was sure tired after that bath and just snuggled with mom and went to sleep. Last Thursday Grandma Hansma got to hold Kyle for the first time. He smiled for her and was wide-awake. I think this make her year- especially since she found out Robert ”accidentally” let Auntie Alice hold Kyle a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday Grandma Kanis got to hold Kyle for the first time. However, he was tired from breastfeeding and wanted to go back to bed after a little bit. Oh, well, next time she can hold him for longer. Robert also said that Kyle could be coming home in 2 weeks so we are really busy trying to get the room ready between me going to the hospital and Gary working. It’s just about done and then I can set it up.
Auntie Ali with Kyle when Robert "accidentally" dropped him into Auntie Ali's hands. Yes, Alice the secret was out so I figured I might as well put the picture on the blog.
Kyle & Benjamin's new bed. They just love it.
