The twins were sooooo happy to get a visit from one of their favorite NICU nurses! Thanks Ady (and your perfect daughter) for stopping by to see the kids! Can’t wait to get our sets of twins together! Love staying in touch with those who cared for our sweeties when they were tiny, tiny humans.❤️#thomasontwins #randrtwins #twins #nicunurses #nicu #superhero #26weekers

This is the awesome NICU nurse who took such good care of me. 👶🏾🌹#kissanurse #mixedkids #interracialbabies
Félix est rendu avec un lit de grand bébé à l’hôpital. Il nous parle de sa sortie à la maison depuis déjà 2 semaines, mais sa date repousse tout le temps, car son cœur fait encore des décélérations. Je suis découragée par moment, car j’ai l’impression que tout ça ne finira jamais. J’essaie de me raisonner en me disant que tout le monde fini par partir d’ici un jour ou l’autre. Je me dit aussi que c’est un mal pour un bien car ses 2 frères sont encore ici, mais j’ai tellement hâte de pouvoir les coller sans me faire déranger ou d’avoir à partir pour retourner à la maison avant le trafic. Logan lui a recommencé à boire au biberon et sa respiration c’est un peu stabilisé. Ce qui est une bonne chose. Nathan lui va avoir une batterie de test demain et vendredi pour évaluer son canal pulmonaire ouvert. 🙏🏼😣 j’espère de tout cœur pouvoir repousser la chirurgie encore un peu... les hauts et les bas de l’unité néonatale. . . . #momof4boys #tripletsofinstagram #oxygenbaby #nicu #neonatal #hospital #preemies #micropreemies #miraclebaby #myboys #soproud #babiesofinstagram #premiestrong #26weekers

These photos are priceless ❤️ Look at the way my wee Rosie is holding her brothers hand 😍😍😍 Both of these angels are just so calm in each other’s presence. They already have such an amazing bond at such a young age ! Even down to mirroring one another’s movements even though they are opposite sides of the room from each other 😍 #Kashmere #JasmineRose #TwinCuddles #Twins #26weekers #twinboyandgirl #twinbonding
Cuddles with my twinnies today 🤗😍😁❤️ first twin cuddles together with both of them off CPAP. Was so nice being able to kiss and snuggle them without that ugly CPAP mask in the way 💯💯💯 #Kashmere #JasmineRose #NICU #NICUjourney #26weekers #Twins #TwinCuddles
Spending time with these sweet boys is so good for my heart! 💙💙 They both weigh 6 lbs 1 oz and have MAJOR swelling from their inguinal hernias they are struggling with right now. They are so sweet and I hope they get better soon! Bentley also was bottle fed 26 mls today, which is HUGE progress! Baby steps until they can come home 💕. #twins #twinbrothers #twinboys #micropreemietwins #micropreemie #NICUbabies #26weekers #TTTSsurvivors #twinparents #twinmama #bottlefeeding #littleblessings #doublyblessed

First picture of our family of four together and the boys first story time!! It was heavenly to get to hold both of the boys at once and have Zach read to them 💕 They both weigh 5 1/2 lbs and are in cribs next to each other! We feel so blessed that they have been doing so well. We seriously can’t wait to bring them home and have a crazy new adventure start! 👶🏼 👶🏼 #twinbrothers #twinboys #micropreemietwins #micropreemie #NICUbabies #26weekers #TTTSsurvivors #twinparents #twinmama #firststorytime #firstfamilypicture #together #littleblessings
40 semaines, c’est fait, nous les avons rendu à la date du terme. J’avais pensé que ça se passerait différemment. Mon positivisme a pris un deux minutes de pause, une chance que papa est avec moi pour me soutenir et me faire voir le beau côté des choses. Logan est retourné 2 jours au soins intensifs, car il c’est étouffé et il n’était plus capable de respirer. Ils lui ont passé une RX des poumons et ils nous ont confirmé que sa pneumopathie était sévère. Il va rester au moins encore 1 mois à l’unité et il va avoir besoin d’oxygène à la maison pendant plusieurs mois. On s’en doutait, mais se le faire confirmer c’est différent. Sinon, Félix va sortir dans les prochaines semaines mais possiblement avec des gavages jusqu’à ce qu’il boive sa quantité de lait. Nathan aussi va sortir peu de temps après, mais il va avoir besoin de soins comme à l’hôpital pendant 1 mois au moins. Il va avoir de l’oxygène et un moniteur qui nous dit s’il respire la nuit avec des gavages lui aussi. Je me sent dépassé, on se pratique à l’unité pour apprendre à être des bons infirmiers pour notre trio. Cette nouvelle étape va être encore moins facile que l’on pensait, mais ils en valent la peine, ils se sont battus si fort pour vivre que c’est la moindre chose d’en faire autant pour eux. . . . #oxygenbaby #nicu #procheaidant #preemiestrong #miraclebaby #tripletsofinstagram #identicaltriplets #tripletsboys #triplets #grandprematuré #prematurebaby #26weekers #14weeksold #momof4boys
Adam and Ben were born a week before Christmas. Thanksgiving was the first holiday we were able to spend as a family of five outside the hospital. Happy sad as I put up the tree. This (2018) should be their first Christmas. #nicu #preemie #firstchristmas #twins #26weekers #26weeker
What a manic few days! Who ever swapped my happy babies for the little monkeys here now could you kindly swap back now 😂 on the bright side there has been A LOT of lovely snuggly cuddles. And we have had the occasional smile 😍 we spent some lovely time with our friends from NICU on Wednesday. I love seeing their beautiful little ones who have grown and changed so much! . . . . . #nothingdownaboutit #downrightperfect #sisters #twins #26weekers #teething #nicufriendsforlife #firstfriends
Happy Thanksgiving from Mexico!! 🇲🇽I couldn’t be more grateful for Zach through everything we have been through and especially now as he is so patient and helpful during our trip. ❤️ My cute little family is everything and I cannot wait to be able to go on family vacations with all four of us 💕 #twinsboys #preemiebabies #twins #26weekers #twinparents #littlebrothers #gratefulforfamily #blessings #mexico #thanksgiving
Happy Thanksgiving from the Loughs🦃🍁 I’m so thankful and excited to watch the boys really take the holidays in this year as they begin to be more aware of their surroundings. The holidays are so much brighter with these two!

So I was trying not to cryogenic I was being told that these two little monsters were discharged from hospital follow ups as they are doing amazing! The doctor was so happy with them she when by their birth age not their due date! where there is 14 weeks difference! 😳 So in my eyes that means they are above average! Just saying!!! 😉 #26weekers #twins #solucky #miraclebabies #1 .15lbs&2lbs#Premature #hard2years #lovethem
These two were princesses from the start. Happy, healthy, strong, and beautiful. My little miracles. ❤️❤️#worldprematurityday #identicaltwins #twins #preemie #26weekers #nicugrad #tttssurvivors #princesses #miracles

“I feared because it was too early, I cried because it was too soon. Yet I underestimated the strength in one as small as you.” 💕#worldprematuritymonth #preemieawareness #26weekers #miraclebabies #preemiestrong #strong #twingirls #twins #babygirls #twin #black #blackbabies #preemie
🌈World Prematurity Day🌈 Having a premature baby is definitely a unique experience. I cant think of anything to compare it too, the highs are like nothing else, the lows are worse than anything you can imagine. When you fall pregnant you think that you will hold your children after birth, but we waited 2 weeks to hold Olivia and over 3 to hold Tallulah. You think you will give them their first feed, but someone else does it through a tube. You assume you will change their first nappy, put on their first clothes or clean them. You can’t. You think you will get to see your family cuddle and love them, but they can’t because they are behind they are fragile and poorly. . But the little people you just brought into the world under scary and unknown circumstances become your pillars of strength. You see them fighting everyday and you have to stop feeling sorry for yourself and pick yourself up, for them. They show you how. They go through more in the early years of their lives than most in their entire lives. We only had to stay for 3 months but we met people in far worse situations, staying for a lot longer with much sicker babies. . Its truly amazing that even babies born at 500g or less can survive, and that today we have the knowledge and know how to make that happen. More and more parents get the chance to take their little ones home eventually but sadly some don’t. Thats why fundraising and awareness for issues such as extra maternity/paternity leave and medical research is still necessary. No one can understand what spending time on the NICU is like unless they have done it, no one can understand the bubble it creates around you, or the family you make along the way. We are incredibly fortunate that we are sat at home, our babies asleep upstairs, healthy & Perfect. Olivia and Tallulah, you are stronger than you know and you can achieve anything. Without NICU units and staff we wouldn’t have three members of our family. @danielle_gray Isaac Jax and Olivia and Tallulah, we cant imagine our lives without you. 🥰💙💖💖 . . . . #26weekers #olivialilytallulahpoppy #prematurityawarenessmonth #niculife

Today is World Prematurity Day. Almost 21 years ago our boys made an unscheduled entrance into the world 14 weeks early. They each weighed just over 2lbs and we had no idea if they would survive. Benjamin spent 9 and a half weeks in hospital, while Gregory spent his 11 weeks in two different hospitals; an extra challenge with two babies in different hospitals. I won’t lie, the first few months were hellish. We didn’t know if they would survive, and if they did what effect their prematurity would have on them. Today they are happy healthy 20 year olds. We’re so grateful for the staff at the SCBU at Hichingbrooke hospital and the NICU at the Rosie Maternity Hospital at Addenbrookes, for their love, care and expertise, for advocating for our boys when we couldn’t and for ultimately saving their lives. We will be forever grateful and would never be able to repay you. #notesfromafarmhousekitchen #worldprematurityday #prematurebabies #preemies #twins #scbu #nicu #26weekers #nhs
World Prematurity Day 👣❤️🙏🏻 very thankful for my own premature babies, as well as, all of the sweet miracles and their families I have had the honor of caring for over the years👩🏼‍⚕️❤️🙏🏻 #26weekers #1poundwonders @marchofdimesal
Today is World Prematurity Day. Our #preemie was born at 26 weeks and 5 days, weighing 1lb, 12oz. He’s now 10 months old, 7 months adjusted and over 19lbs. We are so happy he’s healthy and perfect 😍 #worldprematurityday #worldprematurityday2018 #26weekers #ourtinymiracle
Some people never get to meet their heroes. I got to give birth to mine. It’s World Prematurity Day💜💜 Reid and Raelyn were 14 weeks early. #worldprematurityday #26weekers #7monthsold #nicu #premies #boygirltwins @matty152
Today we celebrate our three little miracles. They are our #littlewarriors 💜 Today we hold them tight in the knowledge that their journey to get to where they are today was hard, but showed their true strength far beyond what we thought possible. 200 days combined total they spent in Calgary’s Neonatal Intensive Care Units after being born far too soon. Today we celebrate them + those who helped them through their journey so they can be crazy 7 + 6 year olds today 💜#worldprematurityday #smallandmighty . . .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #jacobgracedesigns #calgaryhealthtrust #nicumama #nicudad #nicufamilies #ourlittlelife #calgary #yyc #localyyc #calgaryism #yycfashion #yycnow #eventsyyc #preemiepower #calgarynow #calgarybuzz #calgarylove #26weekers #shoplocalcanada #ouryyc #twinlife #yycbuzz #prematurebabies #33weeker #happykids #dogood
This time 4 years ago we were 53 days in to our 89 day stay in the NICU. Whilst the memories are fading, they will always be little miracles 💜. *See: https://tazziblog.wordpress.com/2015/09/21/happy-birthday/ for our miracle story* #worldprematurityday #twins #nicu #miracles #littlemiracles #momofmultiples #26weekers #preemies #micropreemies #littlefighters
World Prematurity and a rare video for me to share. My twins 💙💙 sound on to hear us chatting to the little puppies we called them and also the sounds of neonatal intensive care which is constant alarms. This was our lives for 93 days. Sitting there for up to 16 hours. Waiting for the next precious cuddle. Waiting for the consultants to update you. Waiting for your baby to grow as they would inside you. This was our first cuddles and the boys gestational age was 26 weeks 5 days. They're skin is incredibly thin so you cannot rub it and their nervous system so immature it hurt them if you did anything more than just hold them. I love my boys and miss them being together physically more than anything. T&T 💙💙 #worldprematurityday #mytwins #preemietwins #26weekers #oneonearthoneinheaven
Hoy se celebra el #InternationalPrematureDay y en verdad nosotros tenemos MUCHÍSIMO que celebrar. Hace un año lo vivimos de forma diferente, en el hospital y llenos de incertidumbre por el camino pendiente de recorrer.

💜 World Prematurity Day 💜 17th November had never been such a poignant date to us until we had the #mezzarantwins . I never knew that every year, an estimated 15 million babies are born preterm and that approximately 1 million children die each year due to complications of preterm birth. In fact, many survivors face a lifetime of disability, including learning disabilities and visual and hearing problems. Due to unfortunate circumstances, our precious babies were born extremely preterm at 26 weeks. Reuben was only 990g and Maegan was 890g. If not for medical science and act of God, we would not have been able to experience the sheer joy and happiness these two bring to us and others. As we celebrate the miracle of all surviving preemies on this day, we also remember those who sadly lost the fight. Thank God for neonatal doctors and caregivers in the medical world. Our journey has only just begun with the twins but I believe we are stronger together to brave the challenges. Big hugs and love to all current NICU patients, graduates and parents! #worldprematurityday #boygirltwins #preemietwins #26weekers #reubenmichaeltan #maeganrileytan #nicugraduates #miraclebabies

12 semaines déjà, presque 3 mois et bientôt à terme! Ma date prévu d’accouchement était le 23 novembre ☝🏼. Ma fierté de voir des grosses joues apparaître au fils des jours. Félix ( sur la photo 1) pèse 3300gr ( 7,2lbs), Logan (sur la deuxième photo) pèse 2850gr (6,1lbs) et Nathan (sur la troisième) pèse 3428gr (7,5lbs). Nathan et Félix sont déjà plus lourd que mon plus vieux à sa naissance à 40 semaines!! Les médecins commencent à me parler de la fin pour Félix 😬 je savais que ça approchait, car il respire maintenant seul depuis plus d’une semaine. Je n’ai pas encore de date, ça dépend de lui ! Il doit boire tout sa quantité de lait seul et rester stable dans sa respiration. Logan et Nathan s’améliorent de jour en jour aussi mais ils leur restent un petit bout de chemin à parcourir avant le grand jour. Je suis fébrile à l’idée que bientôt je vais arriver avec ma coquille à l’hôpital et partir avec Félix. C’est un moment que j’attends depuis tellement longtemps que ça me semble irréel! . . . #reellifesoon #tripletslife #identicaltriplets #triplets #tripletsofinstagram #tripletsplusone #momof4boys #brothers #miraclebaby #preemies #26weekers #12weeksold #prematurebaby
We had a lovely time at Nanny’s today. We wore our pretty bows from @mermaidandthesquid with our little dresses! Cant get enough 🎀🎀 Use code BUBBLES to get 10% off your own bow collection! . Olivia slept pretty much the whole time but Tallulah made the most of it and had a go on the spinning office chair! She also gave me this adorable cackle this morning which just melted me! Poor little Olivia cried all the way home in the car today and has lost her little voice 😢 breaks my heart! Both fast asleep now so fingers crossed she will sound better in the morning! . . . . #olivialilytallulahpoppy #26weekers #bowtiful #cutebabiesofinstagram
* November 1st & 2nd * FIRST BATHS We finally were able to give them their first baths!! 💦 They both did very well. They loved having their heads scrubbed! Beckett kept giving me the scuz look 😂 I am bathing Beckett and Zach is bathing Bentley 💕 We now get to bathe them every 3 days now!!! They currently weigh 4 lbs 9 oz and 4 lbs 4 oz!! They both have been doing fine with their breathing and they are slowly improving with their hearts. They still have up and down days but are overall doing well ❤️ We love them so much and can’t wait for them to come home!! 💙💙 #twinbrothers #twinboys #micropreemietwins #micropreemie #NICUbabies #26weekers #TTTSsurvivors #twinparents #twinmama #firstbaths #littleblessings 💕
Such a lovely day today with my little’s! We have spent all day at home and not ventured out at all, we played and cuddled and its been so nice. I also decided to turn my front room upside down 😂 but I have cleaned everything including skirtings so thats a win (not my favourite job!). Love that they finally fit their little ice cream vests that I brought before they were born, they are 0-3m from @fandfclothing. They looked so tiny when I got them! 🥰 . . . . . . . #olivialilytallulahpoppy #26weekers #blissfullywingingit
Decided to see if we could fit the boys car seats in our car or just the forerunner!? First time pulling those puppies out and had an epic fail in trying to fit them in the car!🤦🏼‍♀️ Thank goodness for the “mom car”! We were able to fit them in there with me comfortably sitting in the middle 👌🏻 We sure cannot wait to bring those sweet boys home!! 💙💙 #prepared ? #twinboys #micropreemietwins #26weekers #TTTSsurvivors #twinparents #twocarseats #twinproblems #foundawinner #momcar #toyotafordays
