Max clearly enjoying the bottle with mom’s milk.
Simon is very content after a meal and a diaper change, but not yet ready to go to sleep.
It has been 3 days now since Simon and Max came into this world and made their parents absolutely happy. Today was a big visitor day at the hospital with mom and dad there, GiCi, great-grandmama Georgia and her best friend Naida, and mom and dad’s neighbor Mary.

It has been a very eventful last few days and mom has just returned home. Simon and Max still have to stay at the hospital for a few days but all is well with them.
By the time Thursday morning rolled around Max was doing quite well.

Tonight Max is finally breathing completely on his own and we are all of course very much relieved. Seeing our intubated son earlier didn’t completely freak us out, but it was a bit scary.
Max looks very comfortable now and of course – ultra cute
