Before we reached Nashville, this delivery room photo was posted on Facebook.

Being infectious in our state of semi-sickness, our role was diminished from being at the hospital -- to staying away from it. Our family task is to "dog sit" Cam and Amy's pup, Sophia. It would be the first time we had met the little rescue poodle they got just one week before learning they were going to have babies.
We collected little Sophia, who pees uncontrollably every time she gets excited. We cleaned the liquid off the floor before we left...
While at the house, we just had to take a peek into the nursery -- home to the grand babies in a few days. With pre-baby company from out-of-town, a mattress had to be placed in the center of the babies' room causing a congested look for my picture... but it is still sweet and inviting.
Unable to resist seeing Cam, Amy and the newborns, we drove, with three dogs in tow, into Nashville for a quick visit. We kept our distance and covered our mouths.
The babies, Barbara and Jude, are healthy and fine. The family hopes to leave the hospital within three days. Our colds should be gone by then and get a chance to hold these little bundles, which we didn't do today.
And sure enough, on the afternoon of the third day, Cam loaded his family into the car to go home.

We waited yet another two days to be sure we didn't spread our cold germs... then we just had to hold these babies!
|Jude weighed 4 pounds, 15 ounces at birth
|Barbara weighed 5 pounds, 1 ounce at birth.
|Amy is an immediate natural at mothering.
They are so tiny!
The top photo was taken after sleep and diaper change -- just before feeding. Cam might look awkward in this photo, but in reality, he was real comfortable holding, feeding and then burping Jude.

Never having babies I'm not comfortable holding them.

Please pray for them.
Update: The grandbabies stayed at the hospital until Thursday afternoon when their weight and temperatures finally met their pediatrician's goal. Maybe this will set them off on to good weight gain. Cam and Amy are exhausted. We'll get in a short visit late in the afternoon when we return Sophie and have supper with them.
