Three Pounds!

For those who check the site daily, sorry we didn't update yesterday. Jay's U-16 girls soccer team had a tournament in Hattiesburg, so that's where we were. H & H have both surpassed the 3 lb. mark!!! Hayden is 3 lbs. 2.4 oz., and Hank is 3 lbs. 1 oz. I'm not sure of their lengths, but Hank looks alot longer and leaner than Hayden does right now. They are both getting some fat on their bodies and have recently grown some booty-cheeks (preemies that young don't have fat yet, so they don't have booty cheeks). Put your thumbs against each other side-by-side with the nails facing you, then look at the pads of them, and that's what their booties look like... so tiny and cute (but they were much easier to clean when they were flat)! Hayden is getting 25cc of formula, and Hank is getting 26. They are both still on the feeding tube, but they will get to try a bottle in a couple of weeks (they don't have the suck-swallow-breathe combo down yet). Everything seems to be going great, and we appreciate your continued interest in the babies! Have a great week!
