26 & 27 Days Old...

Tuesday, before my very scary incident, I went to see and feed the boys their mid-morning bottles. They all were doing fantastic and were on their 4th bottle in a row, well on their way to all bottle feeding!!! It was also Kellans turn to try "actual" breast feeding, Monday I tried it with Caden, he did latch and he sucked for 10 minutes, but his weight did not change, so it was determined he got no milk :( Kellan latched and he sucked for 15 minutes, he gained 24 grams which is counted as him getting 24cc of milk, then he took another 15cc by bottle, little porker, lol...
All three of them had eye exams on Tuesday and did well.

Garren, 26 Days old, 4 lbs 1.2 oz
Kellan, 26 days old, 4 lbs 1.9 oz
Caden, 26 days old, 4 lbs 7.9 oz
Today the boys are on all bottle feeds. That they are doing really well with :)
Unfortunately it doesn't look like Caden will be ready to come home Sunday :( He had an "episode," we weren't there when it happened but from what we were told he choked during his feeding just after midnight and that caused his oxygen level and heart-rate to drop and he had to be stimulated (pat on the back) to bring it back up. Now he is on a "countdown" he has to go 7 days without an episode before he can come home. Garren and Kellan still seem to be on track to come home Sunday...

Notice anything different about the boys???

Kellan, 27 days old, 4 lbs 3 oz
Caden, 27 days old, 4 lbs 9.7 oz
Garren, 27 days old, 4 lbs 2.3 oz
