Sometimes, living in New-Agey California has some unexpected benefits. Remember how everywhere else doctors used to keep the parents’ hands out of the incubators? Not here! As soon as the preemies are strong enough, the nurse hands you over your precious little things and places them on your bare chest an hour everyday. It’s called the “Kangaroo Care” and it feels very good. Really. You should make babies just to try it.

    Wow, they are so incredibly tiny–it is amazing to see you both interact with them. Kangaroo care is great–it really helped us bond instantly with August. I am so happy for you both. Keep the photos and videos coming!
