I forgot to mention last night that they are both starting to open their eyes!! It is about the coolest thing ever. As parents, Kate and I are both convinced that they are looking right at us. Some doctors might say that they cannot see very well yet, but we are pretty sure they looked right at us. It absolutely melts our hearts. When we were praying with Max last night he looked right at us, almost with a, "I am doing good mom and dad, Jesus hangs out with me and my brother when you are gone" look on his face. So cool. They really have to try to open their eyes too, which makes it even more adorable. Their little foreheads get all these wrinkles on them because they are putting forth so much effort.
Both sets of grandparents got to see them today as well, and they were very well behaved (both Max and We and their grandparents). They both opened their eyes to show their grandparents how big and strong they are getting. I took a couple of pictures tonight to show you how they sleep...it is hilarious.
This is Wes all bundled up and ready for some good sleep:
And here is his brother Max all sprawled out enjoying his new found room to stretch!!
Thank-you to every one who has been praying our little guys through the last 6 days. The nurses all say that they are doing really good and that their feisty attitudes are very good signs that they are going to keep fighting. We know each day is uncertain, but we thank God for his providence in carrying these little guys through almost their first week of life.
