Knox & Sloane are 9 weeks old today! They are growing and changing. They are just as sweet as can be!
I know I've posted a few pictures of them already this week, but of course, I have a few more. Okay, a lot. I can't help it.
They had their two month appointment today and it went good. Of course, we hated to see them get shots. They actually shed real tears.
- 10lbs 8oz (6lbs 2oz at birth)
The doctor said she is doing great for a twin who was technically a tad premature.
- 22.25 inches long
- 9lbs (5lbs 10oz at birth)
-The doctor thinks Knox being in a lower percentile is probably due to reflux, eating slow and digestion changes. We are going to add 1/2-3/4 scoop of formula powder to his milk during the bedtime bottle to get him some extra calories in for a while. He needs to take in more than he burns :)
- 22 inches long
Overall, doctor said Knox & Sloane look great!
We are upping Knox's dose of Axid for his reflux. It seems to have helped, but I felt like over the past week it wasn't helping quite as much and I guess the bigger they get the dosage needs to be increased.
We forgot to ask about his Ptosis, which is his lazy little lid. He must have had his eyes closed because based on the pictures I took before the appointment (shown below) it seems pretty distinct today. It seems more noticeable when he is tired so maybe me waking them from a nap for the appointment might be the case in the pictures. When the nurse called this afternoon, Brent asked about it and they are going to make a referral to a specialist/eye doctor. So we will do that in the next few weeks.
Here they are this morning....
Brent got me picking them both up off the couch...
I think the picture on the left is before shots and the right is after.
After the shots. Poor loves.
Trying to recover and get ready to leave...
You may notice Sloane's puppy. My brother got it for her when she was born and she loves it. She recently started rubbing and holding onto it and it's one of the cutest thing I've ever seen.
The rest of these pics I took throughout the week.
Playing on the activity gym....
Sloane likes looking up and Knox likes looking in the mirror.
They are also into looking at their mobile...
We woke up early one morning and it was so cold! I quickly grabbed some onesies and socks to put on them and woke up to this after their next nap. So funny...
Tummy time buddies...
These are from last Sunday. Brent was a big fan of the babes track suits, haha.
Lunch with Brent....
Bedtime melts my heart...
I saw these at Target and I think we will need to own them soon ;-)
Oh, here's a little peak at what is to come on the pumpkin front, haha.
Have I mentioned nursing covers? Bebe au Lait sent me one over the summer and I love it! It comes in quite handy if someone comes by the house and the babes need to eat or if I have to feed outside the house, which I've now done once or twice, one being at the doctor today. I love the pattern I got! Bebe au Lait also carry a variety of other things such as burp cloths, towels and bibs.
That's it for today :)
I think it's evident which pictures were taken with my phone and which were taken with my camera. i really want to get better at doing mostly camera! Phone is just so small and easy. Lately, though, I don't feel like the pictures look very clear!
Hope you all had a good day!
