October 19, 2012:  We’re twin boys born 4 months early and share a room at Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center.  I’m the one in the top photo, born 2 days after my brother.  We’ve both come a long way since we were born 2 1/2 months ago.  I weighed 1 pound, 3.4 ounces and now weigh 4 pounds, 6.6 ounces.  I’ve learned to eat from a bottle and hope to go home very soon.  My big brother weighs 4 pounds, 14 ounces and has already had 4 surgeries.  He’s growing big & strong just like me but needs 2 more surgeries before he’s ready to go home.  He has to have his belly fixed and the doctors need to put a special drain in his head.
