The First Few Months


     The first few months were a whirlwind.  The boys, Grayson, Xayden and Ryder (Babies A, B and C) were on apnea and heart rate monitors for one to three months. Hooking our boys up to a machine felt normal after a while and gave us an added sense of security with a mechanical watchdog ready to bark at any signs of trouble.  We were taught to run and rouse the baby if the alarm sounded, which happened on several occasions.

This picture shows what the wires look like coming out of the baby clothes. 

     We were able to have our babies 'unplugged' when we were holding them or watching them closely.  It was nice to have that extra help, albeit mechanical, after leaving the care of the amazing NICU nurses an doctors. We enjoyed getting to know our four babies and were amazed each day at all the little changes.

Here are some pictures of the babies together in their first few months.
