Week 40

Today is the official "due date" for the babies.  When we found out we were pregnant as a result of our IVF cycle, we knew that Tuesday, June 26, 2012 was the official and exact 40 week due date.

Who would have guessed that by their June 26, 2012 due date, the babies would be almost 2 months old?!

They are doing well and growing at a good pace.  Wren weighs 8 lbs now and Grady is a smidgen over 7 lbs.  Their weights may not sound like a lot but considering they started out at 3 lbs 11 oz and 3 lbs and 4 oz, it is major progress!  

And if I may throw a little "FYI" out there, parents of preemies don't enjoy hearing how "tiny" their babies are.  Every ounce is a huge success and it's a bit discouraging to hear, "Oh! They're so tiny," all the time.  In fact, they are really a wonderful size considering the challenge of coming into the world at 32 weeks and 5 days gestation.

We are so proud of them and the strong fighters that they are!
