Sorry. We will update the site this weekend with new photos and some other posts. Grammie and Pappy Lyon are here, Shannon is healing, the twins are still in NICU, I have the sniffles which I hope is just allergies, and I have my R2 builders meetup all weekend. But we’ll get something up.
Shannon is leaving the hospital this afternoon. We’re getting our things together, will have a quick visit with the twins, and should be home resting by about 1pm. Then starts the complications of needing to be back here a couple times a day to do cares with the babies, while Shannon can’t drive and Gillian can’t be left at home alone. I’m sure one of us will be posting another update either later tonight or in the morning.

Declan crossed the 3 lb barrier last night and weighed in at 3 lb 1 oz. This is good news and it means that he’s gaining weight. Declan was born at only 2 lb 12 oz. (His sister was double that at 5 lb 8 oz.) Getting past 3 lbs feels like progress to us. Although it’s important to note that, at this scale, weights can fluctuate a lot over even just a bowel movement. It’s also important to mention that right now he’s mostly getting nourishment from an IV.

Here are a few pictures of us getting to know our kids in NICU.
I changed my first diaper. Darcy was the lucky one… or was it me since it was just wet?

The nursery is ready! Shannon picked the theme of Robots and Donuts, after falling in love with the artwork of Eric Joyner.
Ultrasound at 11 weeks with lots of movement. You can see a surprising amount of detail because of them moving around.
