The Hill Family

I was fortunate to get to spend some time with Craig and Mel in Anchorage before heading to Fairbanks this week.  And the best part was being the first in the family to get to meet Jordan and Dekar.  The Hill family is doing well.  Mel was discharged from the hospital yesterday, but they have a long road ahead of them.  The babies are still about 2 lbs each and they’re already showing different personality traits.  Jordan loves to stretch her arms above her head like she’s sun-bathing under her light.  Dekar spreads his arms and legs everywhere and constently pulls out his feeding tube.  And he LOVES to blow bubbles.  He is already showing true male characteristics! 

Here are some photos that everyone has anxiously been waiting for:

(BELOW) Craig and Mel in the NICU.  Jordan is in front of them and Dekar is behind them. 

One big happy family.
