Here are some photos of our two little miracle babies. A very sweet and talented friend of mine took them yesterday during our kangaroo care hour. Twice a day Lonnie and I are able to hold the babies next to our skin. It calms the babies down, helps them regulate their tempatures, promotes brain and heart development. It also helps me feel like a mother. In these photos I am holding Maya and Lonnie is holding Max.

The babies are doing very well considering their small size and early arrival.

If anyone is the Houston area is looking for a photographer I would be more than happy to give you her contact information. She takes beautiful photographs.


  1. Those pictures are beautiful! Can you actually email me your friend's info when you get a chance (marci6tx@msn.com)? My sister is getting married here in August so we've been keeping our eye out for someone. I had so much fun holding Maya yesterday :-)!

  2. Gorgeous photos. There is nothing quite like holding your baby in the first few days of their arrival. It is a sweet and peaceful experience.
    I can't tell you how happy I am for you.
    I need your address. Can you have Lonnie send it when you get a free moment. kisses.

  3. She did do an absolutely marvelous job. What a treasure to have these gorgeous and amazing pictures of these little bitty babies of yours. They will grow all too fast! And seriously, you look so skinny!!
