Our litttle ones won't be little ones for long, especially "teeny tiny Caleb".  We had their  one month check up the other day and everything looks great!

Grace is now 7lbs 12oz as of Wednesday.  She's 19 3/4" long and her little head is 34 3/4 cm.  Caleb has officially surpassed his sister, weighin in at 8lbs 3oz and 21 1/2" long!!  However, his little head is super little still..only 31 3/4 cm. The nurse said that he's tall and she's smart...I beg to differ- they're both tall AND smart thankyouverymuch. ;)

Mr. Caleb has a little hernia, but apparently it's nothing to worry about.  The doctor said it would go away by the time he's 3 and his little ab muscles have developed.  Three??? Our kids will be three one day??? How is that possible, they're so tiny and helpless.  It's funny, it really feels like that sometimes, like they're going to be this small forever.  But then some days, like today, I put them in an outfit that they were swimming in just a couple weeks ago and now it hardly fits...and I realize that I've got such precious few moments left of these tiny baby memories. 

We've decided to stop Grace's reflux medication for a bit because it wasn't really helping much.  We're going to see what happens and decide what to do next.  Both of them are on gas drops with every bottle...we're gonna stop those next to see what happens.  They are still groaning and seeming uncomfortable all the time (which I know babies groan...but it's all day and night).

We got their birth announcements in the mail and they are SO cute, I can't wait to get them out...but I'm dreading having to sit down and address all the envelopes.  When do I have time to do that??  I'm stealing a couple minutes to type this while I'm pumping...and listening to Caleb on the verge of crying because I put him down in his crib too soon after eating.  We usually need to hold them upright for at least 15 minutes every time.

Thanksgiving was awesome- my parents came over and brought the food, so I didn't have to cook AND we didn't have to go anywhere.  How lucky are we?! It was super delicious, and the kids were really good all day and slept through most of it.  Unfortunately, that meant they were up most of the night, but B and I were able to sneak away for a couple hours leaving Nana to watch the littles while we hit up a couple of stores for Black Friday at midnight!  Got a few good deals, too!

Ok, Caleb's had enough, need to go get him.  I hope everyone's Thanksgiving was superb. I can't believe it's almost December...and almost Babies' First Christmas! Can't wait!!! (I need to find some adorable little Christmas outfits- that's the best part!)


  1. Do you have everyone's addresses in an excel spreadsheet? If you do, just print off labels and stick them on the envelopes. Nobody is going to begrudge you not hand-writing the addresses, especially when they know you're home with twin newborns!

    What bottles are you using? My SIL's son struggled with reflux, etc. and Dr. Brown's bottles were the only ones that worked for him.

    I'm glad you had such a nice, relaxing Thanksgiving!

  2. Wow. Just found your blog. Looks like you are going to have your hands full in a good way for some time to come. Congrats on the birth of your twins!

  3. I hear ya. On EVERYTHING! LOL

    EJ is getting so big already! Well, not really BIG, just older, ya know? Her size doesn't seem to change too quickly, but her face looks more mature, and is developing really fast. I wish she'd slow down just a bit. (Probably why I don't mind her wanting to be held all the time.)

    Here's the only tip I have for you: When you address your birth announcement envelopes, do an extra one for Christmas cards. It will save you time later. I did all of mine a couple of weeks before EJ was born. Which reminds me, I'd love to add you to the list! Text me your address if you would like a Christmas card. I'll even throw in a birth announcement. 'Cuz, ya know. She's ONLY 3 months old now. LOL
