first doctor appointment.....

The heavyweights have spoken.......obviously, the little chunky babies do not have an issue with eating! Here are the stats from their 3 week/one week post discharge doctor check up:

Chloe:
Birth weight: 4 pounds
3 week, one day weight: SIX POUNDS ONE OUNCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Birth length: 17 1/4 inches
current length: 17 3/4 inches
current head measurement: 13 inches (I only have the CM measurement from birth)

Connor:
birth weight: 4 pounds, 11 ounces
current weight: SIX POUNDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Birth length: 17 1/2 inches
Current length: 18 1/4 inches
current head measurement: 13 inches.

Unbelievable! It's so nice to see them growing and gaining weight. We knew they were both gaining as they are filling out nicely, but to see them both over six pounds is amazing! Their doctor did not have any concerns for either of them. As for Chloe's sleep issues, she suggested trying to have her sleep in her car seat to see if she does better with her head elevated. We will go back in two weeks for another weight check with the nurse and in one month for their hepatitis B shot.

Both Connor and Chloe peed on the scale......little stinkers! Oh well......what can you expect!

Chad and I are heading out to Babies R Us later today to pick up a few things we need. The babies did very well while out for their doctor appointment, so I hope they do well during the longer trip to the store!

That's about it for now.
Later, Jennie

Chad & Jennie...the babies are beautiful. Great to hear they have grown so much. I love the pic of them laying side by side sleeping in their fuzzy little sleepers. Sweet!
