We had our 8 week appointment yesterday and the first weigh in for quite a while... they are GROWING!
Jason is weighing in at 11lbs 8oz and is 23 inches long, Lily is 8lbs 12oz. and is 21 3/4 inches long... WOW! My big babies. Jason is in the 50th percentile and Lily (finally on the charts) is in about the 8th percentile!
The time went by so fast that we never got around to really talking about the vaccines... we ended up doing all that they wanted us to do. Tom said he was a, "better safe than sorry" kind of guy and I just decided to go with it. The doc promised me there was no mercury. So my little babies got one oral vaccine (rotovirus) and three pokes. I'm pretty sure I cried more than they did. So far they've been a bit more fussy and have been SLEEPING more.. not too much, but more!
We had a great visit w/ Pat and Joan. Pat got sucked into helping with our replacement windows and spent about two days on that endeavor (I think he was happy to do it.) and Joan, Mom and I went out and about w/ the babies to avoid the noise and dust... it was... HMM fun I guess! ha One day we walked to the coffee shop then went to the lake and sat outside and chatted..then walked back. The next day we went to the mall and to lunch. Being in the places was fun.. getting there was a bit stressful. So long as the babies are in the slings they are happy, but in the car seats they tend to SCREAM and in the car there's just not much you can do. Joan - the lucky one - was able to turn her hearing aids off.. tricky! ha
