Birth Day Photos (10-23-2014)


This was a very emotional day. ¬†It crept up on us. ¬†I remember everything happening so fast. ¬†When they tell you that you might be having babies today, life takes on a whole new meaning…quickly.

The Cavelets were born at 29 weeks, 3 days.  Emma and Christopher had trouble breathing initially, so they needed a little help.  Doctors gave them surfactant to keep their lungs from sticking and put them on bubble CPAP.  They both were also intubated for a few days, which really helped them.

Those first few days of status updates from the doctor were so stressful. ¬†There’s no sugar coating what they tell you. ¬†They tell you straight up, including worst case scenarios.

So who’s who in all of these photos? ¬†They were really hard to tell apart when they came out. ¬†Emma had the most hair, but they were all pretty pink.

And just like that, our lives changed forever.
