Babysitting

I just got back from the hospital where I got to hold Alex, change his diaper, hold him some more and then I got to change Riley, feed him a bottle which he gulped down while he looked at me and peered about trying to figure out what was happening to the screaming newborn across the hall. He is so cute! I tried to burp him but he fell asleep. I was there about two and a half hours. So fun! The boys have all passed up their birth weights now and are doing very well. They're healthy and adorable and have quite a bit of hair for White babies. I was able to choose three pairs of booties from a bag that had been donated by various women. Mom had crocheted 50 pairs of booties in 2005 which I took down to the birthing center. I tried to find some that she had made but couldn't find any that were exactly as I had remembered them. Women from Craft Warehouse classes have donated quilts for the babies in the NICU, as well as hats and pajamas. It is very inspiring to see each baby with their own quilt by their isolete. I know a lot of love and many hours went into each item. I hope to be able to return the favors someday.

It sure was nice to visit with you. We will come down again when the babies are home to visit. Glad to hear they are all doing well.
