bad bad Levi Blue

bad bad Levi Blue

I am sitting in a room. Pablo’s as a matter of fact. It’s a quiet rainy Friday, and the NICU is calm but for the occasional alarms that indicate that a preemie is de-satting, or in extreme Brady, or IVs need adjusting. Beeps and dings and occasionally accompanying squalls – and always calm measured responses on the part of the genius nurses here who I simply love. They are angels, gurus, beauty queens and my choice for president next time around. Some part of me thinks it might benefit the boys to stay in the NICU until they’re, oh, say, twenty. But I probably ought to get that part of me under control. Meanwhile, the above photo is of Levi last night – giving the baddest stare’s he got. Listen kiddo, you’re not scaring anyone as long as you’re donning the baby blue knit hat. You walk into my bank pistols blazing and talking tough, I’m still not forking over the dough as long as that organized pile of yarn sits atop your noggin.

Alex is at home, mostly attached to a machine. I grumbled during the 3 o’clock AND 6 o’clock pumpings, but I will fall into line – washing, drying and sterilizing the bottles, and then labeling and transporting the jars-o-gold, is, after all, the easy part. (by a LOT).

I promised Alex I was going to do “work” and not blog today from here, so now’s about the time to cut this short. If you were hoping for an update, here it is: the boys look great. Now both Satch and Levi have their IVs out, and are only attached to the monitors and a feeding tube. Everyone’s off the Billy Rubin (isn’t he a nightclub entertainer someplace?) lights, and everyone’s feeding. Mom actually seriously cranked last night, and I proudly strolled in here with serious quantities of home cookin’ for the lads, so while the rest of you are gobbling down those turkey-stuffing sandwiches, these little blokes will be fattening up in their own way . They’ve got food to last them the rest of the day just about, and mom’s finally a step ahead of the boys in the production department (may be tough for that to last too long though!)

I’m not blogging Al – I swear it!

    Great to hear from you guys – and happy t-giving to you too! How was the Tofurkey??

    I’m still sitting with Pablo and he’s looking great. Despite his troubles, he still weighs more than his brothers – so in him we see a more telling glimpse of what these boys are actually going to look like. He’s still doing a lot of sleeping and squirming, but he’s catching up to his bros so they better watch out!
