We are growing!!

I took the boys into the doctor's today (with the help of my Mom) for their 2 week appointments. They are growing great! Isaac left the hospital on Friday at 4lbs 12 oz. He is now 5lbs 4oz!! Ryan left the hospital on 9/21/08 at 4lbs 12 oz. as well. He is now 5lbs 7oz. Our doctor is completely shocked by how much they have gained.

We are feeding every three hours. One baby gets nursed while the other gets a bottle of 1/2 breastmilk 1/2 formula and then we switch for the next feeding. I try to space the feedings apart by at least 1/2 hour so I don't have two hungry babies at the same time. This has happened though...I basically nurse one while the other is propped up on my knees with a bottle. No one gets burped when this happens. Usually just when I start a feeding Claire has needs that she demands be met instantly! Oh well...hopefully I figure out a better system soon.

Thank God for help!
