Baby pictures - first week


Kendra and Connor were born at 2.50 and 2.51 on 7th July.

Kendra under the lights - Fri 10th


Holding Connor - Sunday 12th

Their two isolettes finally next to each other with teddy bears from their Aunty Chrystal on the top


Holding Kendra - I love that little hand clutching the blanket - Sunday 12th


and this stubborn little mouth - "no more food"


Dion holding Kendra - also Sun 12th


Feeding Connor a bottle - Monday 13th

Breathing in Connor's sweet-smelling baby head

Connor and Dion hold their hands exactly the same when they sleep

Kendra being sassy - "enough with the photos already" - Wed 15th

The babies are now a week old, actually 8 days, and getting cuter every day.

This morning we were treated to some sass from Kendra who has decided she’s had enough of all the photos. See photo labelled “K being sassy”.

They’ve set goals for the babies – they must be breathing on their own (which they have been doing since day 2), must be sucking properly (K is on a feeding tube half the time but C is taking a bottle all the time) and of course, the main one, they must be 2kg or more (K is 1.4 and C is 1.7kg).
