Happy Easter from The Gerbino Family!

PS...thanks Aunt @kadyjayne for the girls' Easter dresses. You spoil them rotten and we'd be lost without our favorite nurse at WMC. #nicu #26weekers

Nolan had his first follow up ophthalmologist appt today! There was no significant change so this is good ! It was a little scary for me to drive him home alone because I just wanted to stare at him the whole time but he did GREAT! Thank you for all the prayers for both sweet boys ! Please continue to pray for my sweet Ellis too as they went up on his feeds to 10ccs every three hours instead of 5! They also weened his CPAP down to 6 which is an awesome ween! So please thanking pray that he will continue to tolerate and digest his feeds . That he will thrive with his O2 so than he can get to home oxygen before we know it, or not need the extra help at all! He also had 2 more bowel movement last night which is sooo good , showing that his reconnection was successful! so these are all HUGE blessings. Ahhh the things preemie moms pray for. Thank you Jesus!! #twinmommy #twinboys #nicu #nicugraduate #26weekers ๐Ÿ’•

A lot of people ask me how I can tell them apart, so I'll let you in on the secret! Nova (right) is bigger. Almost by a FULL pound. Her face is fuller, her cheeks are bigger, and her legs are much more chunky. But have no fear, Sage is getting there! Sage is more petite. You can clearly see in the picture their size difference. Nova has more hair, and Sage is balding like an old man ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿผ Nova is sassy as all can be, and Sage is sweet and poses whenever I take her picture (it kills me). They may be identical twins, but these two are DIFFERENT! I hope to raise them as individuals and recognize their own unique little personalities. For now, YES I am that mom that makes them dress the same. Because one baby in one cute outfit is adorable... BUT TWO?! I mean, C'MON!!! #twinsisters #26weekers #preemiestrong

This past Friday, after 114 days in the NICU, our Ava girl broke free and came home! It was crazy sad leaving her sister, but we know she just needs a little extra TLC and will be home in no time. Welcome home baby girl! #nicu #26weekers #42weekscorrected

Last night Nolan woke at 3 am and screamed literally until 7 am. I finally laid him like this after exhausting all of my other options and what happened ? Passed OUT! Why didn't I cuddled him like this sooner?!?!? Best feeling EVER !
โ€ข
Ellis is officially in room air!! They took him off of oxygen at 12!
โ€ข
They also are letting him take 30mls now with his bottle and then putting the rest through his tube ! Once he can take 70-80 mls with a bottle (full feeds) he is READY FOR HOME!!
โ€ข
Please thank and pray for these transitions today!
โ€ข
They are also giving him the formula every other feed to see how he tolerates it to wean off of the donor breast milk!
โ€ข
Praying and thanking he will THRIVE and not need the O2! That he will tolerate and digest all of his feeds without puking or dumping , and that he continues to gain healthy weight without tpn so they can remove his central line !! Also for no sickness or infections! Only thriving from here !! So many great things !
โ€ข
Please also continue to pray that Nolan thrives without his oxygen as wellโ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

Praise God! #26weekers #twinboys #nicubaby #nicugraduate #Nicumom

Yo, itโ€™s cold out there! Time to bust out the warm clothes! Just a little update on some milestones the ladybugs are doing now.
Assata is crawling and standing upright with no assistance and says โ€œgo fishโ€ ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ โ€œnite niteโ€ โ€œdadaโ€ and waved bye bye to the physical therapist today for the first time *side eye*

Sanaari is crawling and stands upright alone as well but not much and she prefers to do it when weโ€™re not โ€œlookingโ€ at her. But she does crawl backwards in a circle yelling lol ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ. She is very shy and will hide her eyes with her hands. She says โ€œdadaโ€ โ€œmamaโ€ โ€œupโ€ โ€œnite niteโ€ and sings โ€œeeeevday (everyday)โ€ oh and she says โ€œaiiiiiiiight!โ€ lol
Theyโ€™ll be walking in no time and THEN Iโ€™ll probably grow grey hairs but it will be fun. Staying blessed and never stressed! ๐Ÿ–ค

18mo/15mo adjusted (after they turn 2 yrs old you do the math, ainโ€™t nobody got time for that lol)

Cannot wait for my baby girls to not have to be subjected to all of this every day. The worst is the shots, especially since I cannot be there to console them. We still don't know when they are going home, but the docs and nurses have it on their radars now at least! Today marks day 79. They're perfect baby girls that all of the nurses swoon over โค. They barely cry, they're sleep trained, queue when they're hungry, and hate dirty diapers. They smile and track with their eyes and are really filling out. I think their thighs are my favorite; next to the kissable cheeks and foreheads ๐Ÿ˜. Hell, I love all of it!!! #NICUbabies #nicutwins #chospofsa #vivianandolivia #babiesvaughan2017 #inlove #26weekers #itstwins #twinbabygirls

6 MONTHS! | Wow oh wow, these little babes have changed our lives forever. โค๏ธThey are smiling, and interacting with us SO much these days! It makes every difficult day worth it. Honestly, it's been an emotional last few weeks. I have officially stopped pumping and boy has that taken a toll on my inner "mom guilt". It's hard letting go, especially after wanting so badly to be able to breastfeed. Although, I am so proud of the pumping I WAS able to do. These girls are still so small (pictures are deceiving!) and even IF they could breastfeed well- they would still need bottles with extra calories- regardless. I'm trying to remind myself "fed is best". But it's still hard. I have pumped religiously for 6 months, with hardly any benefit of breastfeeding. And while those 6 months of my breast milk was crucial, I still wish I could've had a somewhat "normal" experience with feeding my babies. BUT this is our path... this is our journey... and these girls are anything but normal. OKAY I'll stop boobing now ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
Crazy fact: they aren't even on the growth charts yet!! We are 10 and 11 pounds, and 6 months old, 3 months adjusted. (Still HUGE in my books!) It's been a hard past 2 weeks because the girls have developed something called an oral aversion. It's VERY common in micro preemies. These girls- unlike most babies- don't get to decide when to eat. Often times we wake them up because they HAVE to eat to gain weight! So after so many times of having no choice to eat, they start to fight it. And they scream and cry- even though they have no choice but to eat still. But this morning they actually ate like CHAMPS and I wanted to cry! Hallelujah!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ And after they ate, all they wanted to do was snug. It hit me that even though I'm not bonding through breastfeeding, I am bonding with them in SO many other ways. They just held on to me and wanted to be close. These babies don't mind one bit that I stopped, so why should I? They love me the same. They are incredible, and every day my heart is full of so much gratitude. I can't believe the leaps and bounds they have made... I can't believe the miracles they truly are. โค๏ธ #26weekers #micropreemies

It's our 1/2 birthday!๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿค—๐ŸŽˆ

This morning we had our first audiology appointment! Everything looked great and we don't have to return for 6 months! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ #lifeafterthenicu #preemielife #preemiepower #preemiestrong #miraclebabies #26weekers

FACT: Caring for a premature baby doesn't stop after you leave the NICU...they require many follow up appointments to make sure everything is maturing properly ๐Ÿ’œ

๐ŸŒฑ Grow little sprouts ๐ŸŒฑ

3 weeks of a world with you both in it and my goodness it has been a whirlwind. I can't believe how amazingly strong you both are and how resilient such tiny bodies can be. Keep growing our little beans ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
