The Twins at One Month

So I know we are a few days late, but my baby girls are already over a month old.  Time sure does fly.  On that note, please slow down because I need to savor every moment of these girls lives.
 Left: Avery  Right: Sutton

nicknames: Avery: Avery Girl, Avey  Sutton: Sutton Muffin, Suttey 

weight: At the girls pediatrician appointment on January 28th, Avery weighed 6 pounds 1 ounce and was 19 1/2 inches.  Sutton weighed 5 pounds 6.1 oz and was 18 3/4 inches.  They are getting bigger and bigger everyday!

sleep: The girls pretty much sleep for two hours between feedings.  They are starting to stay awake more and more which is exciting to be able to play with them and see their personalities develop.
Other mommies, when can we start cutting out the 2 am feedings?
 Playtime: Top Sutton, Bottom Avery

eats: The girls are big time eaters.  They currently eat/drink my breast milk (and have been since they were born) and have a supplement of two neosure feedings per day.  This is to make sure they continue to gain weight.  I am pumping for them right now and we are doing about one breast feeding session per day per baby.  The girls are working their way up to taking the breast full time, but haven't gotten their yet as they are still premature babies.  It will be great once they are on the breast full time!

loves: I would say they love their mommy and daddy right now.  They love looking around and exploring what our house and the world has to offer.

dislikes: They love the bath, but hate when we take them out of it.  Talk about loud screaming.  They also hate their diapers being changed, but what baby doesn't?

We are beyond fortunate to have such sweet baby girls and pretty quiet baby girls.  I think they really learned a lot in the NICU.  From self soothing to eating well, our girls are on track or ahead of the game.  And to think they are now 38 weekers (gestationally), but have been with us for over a month now.

Mommy loves you girls more than anything!
