Ladies and Gentlemen! Boys and Girls! Step right up. Come and see the amazing million dollar miracle muppets!
Cuter ex-preemies you will not see.
Only 73 days it took both boys to triumph. They have shunned ventilators; defeated breathing and feeding tubes. Tripling their weight in two and a half months, these chunky monkeys are not to be missed!
This almost surreal experience of having both twins together again has been months in the making. In January, they shocked their parents by being multiples. In March, they announced a future filled with blue. In April, they began plotting the great escape. In May, they arrived at 27 weeks and 4 days.
Now, this August 9, both boys are home!
After 10.5 weeks in the hospital following Mom’s six weeks on and off in the hospital the two have undoubtedly created one impressive hospital bill. Well worth every penny. Fattened from two pounds to almost seven. Stretched from only a foot long to 19 inches. These two and a half month old babies correct their gestational age to 38 weeks today. Mere newborns!
Stubborn and fighters. The million dollar miracle muppets are home. They’re both home. Finally. The experience of finally being all together as a family is surreal.
Step right up. Come and see the amazing million dollar miracle muppets – living with a finally full-time mommy and daddy.
(Please remember not to touch the muppets. Previously compromised systems are still developing into healthy big boys.)
