We Held Makenna!!!!!!!

When we arrived in the NICU tonight, our nurses told us they were thinking perhaps we could hold Makenna this evening. Of course we jumped on that opportunity. While I was holding her, she got the hiccups, coughed a bit, and kept moving her eyes around under her lids (we still haven't really seen her eyes). It was really fantastic!!!

Good news is that Makenna and Lauren are both off their ventilators and on cpap. They are breathing on their own, but have room air blowing on their noses to help them along.

Last night Olivia was getting really fussy, so Paul placed his hands over her body to calm her down. Everytime he moved his hands away, she became fussy again...so it was obvious that she loved having her daddy's hand on her. We took a video below:
