Last night's visit at the NICU was a bit special because we were able to hold Mikelle in our arms. The nurse swaddled her in a blanket and put a cute little pink hat on her to keep her at a comfortable body temperature. It was an amazing feeling. With the yellow light off, we can now enjoy looking at her face without the eye patch. I especially love it when she looks at me when I speak. I used to sing the primary song "My Heavenly Father Loves Me" while they were still inside me and it is such  a wonderful feeling to be able to sing to them that song again now that I can see and hold them. I look forward to every visit to the NICU and hear about their progress. I think they are really cute and we feel really blessed to have them in our family. It was a special feeling to see Mikelle in his Dad's arms last night, that was precious. We are looking forward to be able to hold Rianne tonight. Here are some of the pictures that we took:

As long as the diaper change was either Mikelle or Rianne it is all good. You probably shouldn't go around changing random diapers in the NICU. :)

In all seriousness, how wonderful to be with your babies and hold them and sing to them. Yea!

Oh how precious! Lala, I love that you sang to them in a womb and how wonderful that you can hold them now and sing it.
