The 'notes' version. Will flush out the details soon.
Wednesday, February 26, 2013:
They gained weight! Mollie is back above 5 pounds. She is 5lbs 0.9 oz. She gained more than an ounce. William is now 5lbs 2.6oz.
William is out of the isolate. Temps are stable.
Lunch with Great Aunt Cheryl Harjes
Uncle Zach came to hold babies before he leaves for a trip.
Some really good pumping volumes.
FaceTime with Caleb at bed time.

Well the weight report was a little disappointing, Mollie stayed the same at 5lbs 0.9 oz., while William went down to 5lbs 1.8oz.
Plan for the day is to weigh each baby before nursing, and then immediately after. Each mL measures 1gram, so you can measure how much they nursed. It will help us better determine how nursing is going and how much to supplement through their NG (Nasal Gavage) tube.
9:30 feeding, Papa came to help hold the non-feeding baby.
Rachel Britz brought her delicious cookies.
Oma came briefly for kisses and rubbed/stretched out my shoulders.
Josh came for the 12:30 feeding & brought lunch for me.
Heather Olson came for a visit with chocolate!
One week old pictures, using my scarf and Rachel's cookies.
Took a nap
Signs for their bassinets to celebrate their 1 week.
Oma and Caleb stopped by on their way to Oma's house.
Nana and Papa came at about 7:00 and helped hold babies we wrapped up the feeding. They also brought me food from Red Lobster. The Millers had eaten there to celebrate several birthdays, Jason, Josie, and Avery.
William gained about 30 grams and Mollie stayed about the same. This is a bit discouraging.
At 4:00 I pumped 95mL. Each feeding will total 50mL between what they nurse and what they get through the NG tube.
The 6:30am feeding went amazingly well. Mollie nursed 38mL.
The rest of the day's feedings did not go as well, but at least we know they are capable of nursing a larger volume.
Grandpa Gene visited.
Aunt Carrie came with lunch and hungry arms for babies.
Josh came to hold his babes.
My mom stopped by, taking laundry.
Lauren came with Coldstone Creamery.
New nurse, switching from Lisa T to Lisa C. for the night.
