They both really like their pacifiers. They're so cute holding their pacifiers right next to each other.
Here they are all cuddled up against me. Cade is on the left in the picture, and Camdyn is on the right. You can see that he is quite a bit bigger than her. I felt like I had so much baby on me, but then I realized that their combined weight was the weight of a single preemie - about 5 lbs.
Camdyn wearing clothes for the first time. The nurse had to look for the smallest preemie outfit they had in the NICU, and it's too big for her.

Cade has reached the 3 lb. mark! He now weighs 3 lbs. 1 oz. Camdyn now weighs 2 lbs. 6 oz. They are both getting so much bigger. They are doing very well with tolerating their feeds and gaining weight. They are still pretty high on their oxygen needs. Camdyn is usually between 30-40%, and Cade is usually between 45-55%. We are really hoping that they will soon begin to require less oxygen.
The raffle ticket sales are almost over. A winner will be drawn on June 5 (their 2 month birthday). Bridget asked me to remind those selling tickets to turn them into her before June 5. Thanks to all of you who have bought and sold tickets.
Brenna's school ends this week. I am looking for anyone who would like to help watch her on Tues. or Thurs. for a while so I can go to the hospital. I've been going while she was in school. I would need someone to watch her from about 10-2:30. If I have anyone who wants to help out on a particular date, that would be great. If not, I will take her to Wanna Play drop-in childcare for a few hours.
God, we pray for Cade and Camdyn's continued growth. We pray for their lungs to heal and get stronger allowing them to need less assistance breathing. We thank you for each beautiful moment we get to share with them. We pray for them to continue to grow stronger and healthier every day. Amen.
