Two months old!!!

April 17, 2009

(gestational age is 0 weeks – newborn)



I cheated.  These pictures were taken today, at two months and one day old, but I wanted to get their weights on the cards, so we waited until today.  The boys had another pediatrician appointment today, and as you can see, they are doing remarkably well in the weight department.  Both boys gained over an ounce a day since last week, which is what Dr. Brandon wants to see for Max and Wes.  We were cleared today to switch them from the super expensive, predigested formula (that’s made especially for premature babies), to a less expensive formula to supplement my breastmilk with, so YAY!  They will have their oxygen levels tested here in the next few days, and Jeff and I really hoping that at least one of them (or both of them) will be off oxygen soon.

My sister and her husband got here last night, and the boys have been really busy playing with aunt Kristy and uncle Joel (and Grammy and Grampy).  It’s been so great having my family here, it just makes me wish that they all lived closer…

    They’re getting big! I think my cousin carried her daughter like the picture of Wes for the whole first year of her life!
