As of noon today, both of our sweet little boys are OFF OXYGEN!!!!!  They passed their oxygen challenge with flying colors, so Dr. Brandon (the boys’ pediatrician) was confident that they would be just fine without it.  We are going to keep the tanks around the house over the weekend “just in case”, but I don’t think we will need to go back to it for any reason – WOOOO HOOOO!!!!!

Words really can’t describe how I feel when I look at our sweet little guys without the big, ugly stickers and tubing on their faces – ahem – I get a little emotional and misty-eyed just writing about it.  Nine and a half weeks later, we finally get to see our babies the way we were meant to.

In other news, Max and Wes are doing CRAZY good in the weight gaining department.  Today, Max weighed 7 lbs, 3 oz, and was 19 1/4″ long.  Wes was 8 lbs, 10.5 oz, and was 20 1/4″ long.  They are both gaining steadily at a little over an ounce a day, which is FANTASTIC.  OMG, I’m getting teary again…maybe I’ll stop for now.  We’re giving the boys a bath this afternoon, so we’ll post clean, cuddly, sticker-and-tubing-free pictures later tonight.  YAY!
