On to regular formula!

Our dr appt went well. She is very pleased with both babies' progress. Hank weighed 12 lbs., and Hayden was 9 lbs. 15 oz. She has taken us off the high-calorie formula they were on, and they'll now be drinking regular formula. She also said they can have some oatmeal in addition to the rice cereal they are already getting. Thanks for checking in!

A vacation - right down the road

H&H spent their first night in a hotel room last night. We had a really quick but bad storm come through Vicksburg yesterday, and our power was out for 18 hours. We got a room so we could keep their bottles cool and warm them up for feedings, and just for overall comfort. It didn't phase the babies at all, but Jay & I didn't sleep a wink. We're not used to sleeping in the same room with them, so we heard every grunt and snort. Hank found his grin on Saturday. He'd been smiling some, but not regularly or in response to us. Now he does, but he's still stingy with them, which makes his grins extra special. Hayden smiles all of the time and is in the best mood when she first wakes up (she doesn't get that from her parents!). We have a dr appt on Wed. so we'll have updated weights then. Have a great week!

Happy Father's Day to Jay!

The babies are doing great. Hank is sleeping through the night consistently, now. Hayden does it, too, but not as regularly. She did last night, though. I think Hank is between 11.5 and 12 pounds. Hayden is between 9.5 and 10 pounds. We go back to the dr next week, so I'll have definite weights then. I'm back at work full-time now, so Jay is at home with the twins. We've found someone to keep the kids when school starts, and we are so excited about her. Thanks to everyone who was praying for this need. I took some cute pics this weekend and will try to post them this evening. Y'all have a great week.

H&H slept all night last night--a whole 8 hours straight!!! We fed them at midnight (we're late-night people, so we're always still up at midnight) then put them down and went to sleep. At 7 a.m. I bolted straight up in bed and freaked out. I ran in their room to make sure they were still breathing, and of course they were. So I went back to bed until they woke us up at 8. Hallelujah! It may not happen again for a while, but at least we know they are capable of it. We're about to go get our baths--they both love them. I put their tubs up on the bathroom counter, and they watch themselves in the mirror and splash having the best time. Since we can't really go anywhere and do anything, I let their bathtime be their special fun time. I let them make the biggest mess, and I get sopping wet, and I don't care. Maybe I'll take some bath pics this week and post them. Thanks for checking in! Have a great week!

Mr. Mom

We're still doing great. I started back to work part-time this week. Jay's at home with the twins. He's having to get up with them at night, and he's exhausted. I think they realize that it's Daddy that's taking care of them, and they've ganged up on him. They haven't been the best babies the past couple of nights, and I hope it gets better soon, since I know exactly what Jay's going through. We think we may have found someone who will keep the kids when school starts back. She comes very highly recommended, and we're going to meet with her today. Thanks to everyone who've been praying that this need be met. I hope it works out!!!

Time flies...

Can y'all believe it's June already??? Time sure flies! Everyone is doing great. Just wanted to say that I've re-organized the photo links below. No new pics since the last update on Sunday, though. Have a fun day!
