October 8th, 2006 - Big Steps Forward!

Woohoo..It looks like Karter has outgrown is need for oxygen! Of all the attachments our preemies have to wear, they're all pretty bearable with the exception of the oxygen. It creates a giant sized hassle to take the babies anywhere (even to another room in the house). We've been taking his oxygen off about once a week just to see how he does and this time his oxygen has stayed saturated for almost 36 hours. We're still going to keep his oximeter on until we meet with the doctor on tuesday but all in all, this is a giant and long awaited step for him and us!.

This picture is the very first time that Karter has been outside just for the fun of it (not going somewhere to get poked and prodded):

Kolton has now amazed us! He was able to roll-over from his tummy to his back on his own! Three times no less! I'm posting video of his third attempt for everyone to see. Please excuse the poor quality, I had to grab the nearest camera and it was a digital still camera that wasn't really built for video.

Here's a cool pic I just happened to catch as they were falling asleep...

That is soooo cool! Put all the things they do out there so I can share in it. It made my day and Rylee's also.
