Happy New Year

Well Brian and I are home and it is so bitter sweet. I am finally home without anything thing hooked up to me or on bed rest but the boys are not here which is really hard!
Lets see, what has happened lately?
Brandon has had his first bowel movement today (12/31) which is so awesome... we had been waiting for that. They upped his feeeding to 20 ml. and we have been able to feed him (through his feeding tube) and change his diaper, comb his crazy hair and take his temp and has gained alittle weight putting back on the weight he had lost. We are really looking forward to bottle feeding him. He is also keeping his temp! He is opening his eyes now and we think he has brown eyes and the nurse said he resembles Brian--- awe how cute.
John has lost some weight... about a pound but they had stopped his feeding for a bit because it was not processing and just sitting in his tummy. They have restarted his feeding at 10 ml. and today he had no residual (meaning his food is processing) so we are hoping that keeps up and he gains some weight. He is under a jaundice light but we were prepared for that. He looks like he is getting a tan! I was able to change his dirty diaper and he is also holding his temp well. The nurse says he resembles me, which I love and he is the calm sweet twin who just chills.
Brian has been such a trooper the last 4 days.... sleeping on the couch in the hospital and waking up to help me when I pump or need water or help to get up. As for me, I am sore but gettting around. I am SWOLLEN all over and have kanlkles. I feel like it is never going to go away but everyone says this is normal after a c-section and an epidural. Pumping is going very well other than I am tender but I am still trying to go strong and get my boys some food! Other than that Brian and I are just hanging out on New Years Eve thanking God that we have healthy twin boys and praying that they will be home soon with us and that I recover quickly so I can get around easier and get ready for their homecoming!!!
