Holding the twins for the first time

First time Karen got to hold one of the girls

We went to visit the twins today and held them for our first time for an hour or so. Karen grabbed Elizabeth (well, not really—the nurse handed her to Karen), and I held Carolyn. Both were quiet and sleepy. Elizabeth no longer has an IV or feeding tube—just the heart rate, respiration, and O2 monitors. Carolyn still has the feeding tube and IV.

Afterwards, we celebrated with dinner at a favorite Thai restaurant and pigged out on red curry with chicken and roast duck fried rice. Delicious.
