Gaining weight...

Our pediatrician appointment went great. The babies have gained 6 oz. putting Hank up to 7 lbs. 10 oz. and Hayden at 6 lbs. 9 oz. It's only a pound difference, but Hank looks like Hayden's older cousin, not her twin brother--he's huge!!! He feels like a bucket of lead, while she feels like her bones are made of drift wood. They are so different--in looks and temperament. Hayden is very demanding--when she's hungry, she's hungry, and she wants food right now! Hank, bless his little heart, he's so laid back that he'd starve to death before he caused a scene. We think that Hayden has reflux, she spits up a good bit, and it really ticks her off. So now, we sit her in her car seat for 30 minutes after each feeding. We just started this today after our appointment, so we'll let you know how it goes. The twins and I are making the big trip down to McComb this weekend. My good friend Deedre' is getting married, and I wouldn't miss it for the world. And I also want the babies to meet their great-grandfather who is unable to make the trip to Vicksburg. The doctor said that traveling is not an issue--fill their bellies up and they'll most likely sleep the hour and a half it takes to get there. The main thing is just making sure they're in a good environment when we get there--no smoking, pets, etc., and still keep them confined to the house (my grandmother's). We've got that covered, and I'm so excited about getting to show them off to family that haven't met them yet. We will see the eye dr again on Monday and the pediatrician on Tuesday, so we'll have new weight updates then. It's driving us crazy not knowing their weights on a daily basis like we used to when they were in the hospital. I'm considering sneaking them out to Kroger in the dark of night to weigh them on the produce scale! Just kidding, of course! Y'all have a great week!
