This picture is taken at a historical moment: all 8 little baby's are asleep!!! They are all beautiful and it is nice when they are resting, We have 3 beds with 2 baby's. We were full, but what do you do when they bring twins, like yesterday, very small and their mother just passed away that night?? Yes we take them in. But it is a lot of work and even those small baby's... they can cry!!! So we enjoy moments like this.
This are the twins, they were brought yesterday, Mary and Joseph. Mary's weight is 1.5 kg and Joseph's weight is 1.8 kg. They are 1 week old and their mother died in the night. The baby's are small, and Joseph has a bad infection, probably through the umbilical cord. Janneke has to put him on IV drip and he gets IV medication. Mary also is on medication, but just via the mouth. They both drink well, so we think they will be fine. But they are to be watched....
I think you can understand why we are happy when the children are asleep!!! And they never sleep all at the same time, the night duty is busy at night with feeding and keeping up with all the baby's.
But they are beautiful!!!
