Doctors appointments...

We took both girls to the pediatrician today for follow up visits. She said that they both are looking good and she has no major concerns about either girl. They both have gained quite a bit of weight. Addison is weighing in at 6 pounds 2 ounces and Alexis is weighing in at 5 pounds 14 ounces. Their goal is 25-30 grams or about 1 ounce per day. We go back next week just for a weight check. See the below pictures of the girls sitting in their car seats waiting for the doctor.

Life at home is going great. We are trying to get on some kind of schedule and seem to be adapting well. I think that everyone is expecting us to freak out about having two babies to take care of, but it really isn't too bad. Yes, It's a lot of work, but we wouldn't change a second of it. See the below pictures of the girls just hanging out on their boppy pillows.

Jynxie has also had to make the transition of dealing with major changes in our household. For the most part she loves the kiddos. If I'm upstairs and one of them is crying or fussing, she will run up and get me. She will walk in between my legs, almost tripping me until we tend to the fussy child. Luckily, Jynx hasn't tried to jump into their bassinets or bother any of their things yet. She does like to sit in the bottom storage area of the bassinet. See the below picture.
Just wanted to say another HUGE thanks to all our family and friends who have been bringing over meals to help us out. WE GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!! Cooking a big meal hasn't been a top priority for either of us lately, so having help has made a huge difference. A big thanks to my friend Shereen for providing back up on Monday evening. Terry was going to a concert with a friend and I was a little nervous about being alone with the girls for the first time. She stayed for a couple of hours and then we were by ourselves....piece of cake!!

It is so good to hear that everything is going so well. A bit of advice, ask for some of those dinners when you go back to work, that is when I needed the extra help. Can't wait to see the girls!
