Super and Cute Babies...

The Laval family has been quite busy. Since the girls came home 2 weeks ago, we have been working to get us all on a schedule that get us some sleep. Luckily we are both not working at the moment so we are able to catch some shut eye in between feedings...enough about the parents...more about the girls.

They are doing well. Skyler is 5lb 14oz, Chloe is 5lb 7.5oz, and Lily is 5lb 8oz. We try to give them awake time during the day, but they are still little so eating and sleeping is about all they are doing; however, we have witnessed all of them rolling over from their bellies to their backs...ALREADY!! Their full term date is July 31st (when I would have been 40 weeks along and officially due), so we are expecting to see a lot more alertness and awake time after then and some more pounds are put on their little bodies.

Thank you to all of you who have called, visited, and send wishes and prayers our way. We are so fortunate to have all of you in our life. Here are some more pictures to enjoy!

Welcome Home Skyler, Chloe, and Lily!

Skyler, Chloe, and Lily all wrapped up and ready to come home!!!

Hello all! Most of you already know the girls came home last week (July 7th). They are adjusting very well to their new Tinker Bell nursery and Steve and I are also adjusting well to having them home. Most of our family has referred to us as a well oiled machine...we are even splitting the night shift so one of us can get a good night sleep.

As far as the girls...they are growing so fast. Last Thursday Skyler was 5lbs 5oz, Chloe was 4lbs 14oz, and Lily was 4lbs 13oz. We are convinced with the way they have been eating that Skyler is quickly approaching 6lbs and Chloe and Lily are not too far behind her.

Parenthood is amazing and we are enjoying every minute of it! Enjoy the pictures we posted here...more to come later.

Here are some pictures of the girls for you to enjoy. We will try to upload more as we can. It is hard to take pictures when we are visiting them becasue Steve and I are very hands on the whole time we are there. It is a learning process and so important that we ask questions, feed, change, and bond with them. Just be patient - more photos will come in the future! :)
Love -
The Laval Family :)

Quick Update...

First and foremost...Happy 1st Fathers Day to Steve!! :)
Now..the girls...
They are doing great in the NICU. They were off all kind of support after the 24 hour precautionary period (they didnt really need it anyhow). They were all moved from level 3 NICU to Level 2 at 4 days old. The are currently 10 days old today. Skyler weighs 3 lbs 13 oz and is drinking 3 bottles a day out of her 8 feedings. Chloe weighs 3 lbs 6 oz and has 2 bottles a day out of her 8 feedings. Lily also weighs 3lbs 6 oz and has 2 bottles out of her 8 feedings.
All three are still in their isolettes, but should be moving to regular cribs hopefully this week. Skyler will probably be in one before her sisters because she is bigger. No word yet on when they will come home, it is just a matter of bulking our babies up.

Thank you for all your warm wishes, thoughts, and prayers for our family. We are so greatful to have such an amazing group of friends and family supporting us and our precious daughters.

Happy Fathers day to all the Dad's out there!

We love you all. XOXO

31 weeks...

...well it has come down to that point in the pregnancy where Kim is in a lot of discomfort. We have a scheduled visit with the high rist doctor tomorrow to check the anatomy of the babies and from there he is putting us on hospitalized bedrest to ease some discomfort. The dr. is really wanting to stretch out as long as he can before delivery of the babies so hopefully the hospital bedrest will help out a little bit.
FYI - Kim's phone somehow got dropped into her glass of ice water so it isn't working; however Steve's phone is still working so if you need to get in touch with us, just give him a call.

Good News and Bad News...

...the good news is everything is going VERY well with Kim and the babies! The chances of going into pre-term labor at this point are very slim! The bad news...Kim has to be pregnant longer!! We are on a 5 week timeline right now. Looks like the day will be June 18th or 19th at this point and we get to meet our girls! :) At least we have a good idea of a timeline at this point so we are more aware of what (when) to expect! Kim is already measuring full term, which in normal people terms means...she look like she is about to burst open...can't imagine what 5 more weeks will look like!
Things are going great otherwise and we are anxious for the next 5 weeks to pass by! Hope everyone is doing well.
