Looking through our recent pictures of the boys, I’m realizing that we aren’t really focusing on capturing good pictures of them as much as we’ve been focusing on spending more time cuddling them.  Cuddling is important, but pictures are important too (my Mom and sister will attest to this)!!!

Last night, both boys had a little bit of a weight gain, which is fantastic.  Slow and steady.  Max is now up to 3 lbs, 11 oz, and Wes is 4 lbs, 6 oz.  Max will soon be on 100% (my) breastmilk, and I just know that once he makes the switch he will start packing on the pounds (or ounces) like his little brother!  He was more alert last night than Wes was, so we tried breastfeeding again, and it went so well – he latched on almost the entire time I held him, until he drifted off to sleep.  Holding my boys while they sleep is probably my favorite thing to do right now.  As much as I love starting into their eyes, and watching them wiggle around when they’re awake, the short breaths they take and little noises they make while they are sleeping and dreaming are priceless.

    Nollie weighed five pounds when he was born “almost” full-term…Wes is almost his size! WOO-HOO! Omg – I am so glad I am feeling better so I can come and see them in the next week or so. I want to be sure to finish all my meds and make sure I am a 110% better, but I simply cannot WAIT to see them. Oh, and their mama too!

    That little Max is starting to look downright chunky! And Wes… what a feisty little guy. I wouldn’t want that thing in my nose, either! :o)
