Alexis' FIRST BOTTLE!!!
Today Alexis took her first bottle!!! This is a huge step! The nurses have told us that feeding is usually the longest process and the one that will decide when the girls get to come home. Alexis did great! She only took about a 3rd of her feeding from the bottle, but they were very surprised that she took that much on her first try. She also let out a ginormous burp right afterwards. Addison fell asleep right before her feeding time so we didn't try the bottle with her. We are hoping that tomorrow she will be awake and ready. They want to make sure that the girls are alert when trying to feed so that they won't choke. They want them to fully focus on sucking, swallowing and breathing all at the same time. So, if they are sleeping at their feeding time they will just get their meal in their tube.
All of today's pictures are of Miss Alexis!!!
