Mommy looking at Gracie
Gracie getting her temperature checked. For us to hold the babies the nurses like them to be 36.5 degrees celsius (37 degrees is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) or more.

Mommy takes every opportunity to hold their hands and let them know she is close by
Daddy got to hold Gracie on Friday, Oct 2nd
Gracie knows how to melt her Daddy's heart, her little hand resting on me sure made me happy!

Ruthie likes to keep her hands by her face as well when she sleeps
Ellis was able to come on Friday to the hospital and we are sure glad he did, because the next day the hospital put into force a restriction on anyone under 16 visiting the 4th or 5th floor of the hospital (4th is Mother and Baby and 5th is Labor and Delivery as well as the NICU). He picked this locker for Mommy and Daddy to use because it was number 6 and now we have 6 in our family.
Ellis can sure rattle off his sister's names and he's even practiced writing them.
This is the Ronald McDonald Room where parents (and kids before the restriction was put into place) can get some crackers, drinks, and watch a movie or TV while their children are in the NICU.
