I am always amazed at how far our girls have come. From the time they were conceived, they had an uphill battle; the odds were never in their favor. But they have over come so many challenges. I am sharing some pictures here from the first week or two of their lives and I am going to maintain another page with their most recent pictures. I want to remind everyone (and myself) just how far they have come.
Addison on the day she was born. This was the first time I saw her. It was almost 12 hours after their birth.
We got to hold Addison first because she was the most stable. This was the first time I held her. She was two days old.
The first time Daddy held Addison. 3 days old.
Addison at about two weeks old. I remember that this was around the time that she really started responding to my voice; she would turn towards me.
Violet holding Daddy’s finger on the day she was born. This was the first time I saw her.
Violet at about 5 days old. Still in her “honeymoon” period before she ended up alternating between the cpap and ventilator for several weeks.
The first time I held Violet. She was 8 days old.
The first time Daddy held Violet. 6 days old.
Oriana the day she was born. Also the first time I got to see her.
This is still one of my all-time favorite pictures of Oriana. She’s being so dramatic here. She was only a few days old in this picture.
Six days old. The first time I got to hold Oriana.
The first time Daddy held Oriana. 7 days old.
