2 week Doctor Appointment...

Well the babies are just a little over two weeks old now. Criton is weighing in at 7lb 1 ounce, Haley is 6lb 15 1/2/ ounces, and Caitlin is at 6lb 9 1/2 ounces. The doctor is extremely pleased in their development and weights thus far and said he won't need to see them back until they are two months old due to how well they are doing.... Yay!!
They are growing like little weeds. They are taking between 3-4 ounces of formula/ breastmilk every 3 hours. We have had some issues with gas over the last few days so the doctor told us to try mylicon drops to see if that would help. We are still on the Neosure (22 calorie formula) and will probably continue to be on it until at least their two month check up since they were technically preemies.
It's still a juggle to try and get anything house wise done in between feedings but it is getting easier.
You just have to think in priorities as far as housework and such.
I am enjoying every moment with the little ones though... even the tough ones where they are up and fussy all night due to I had to do some minor running outside the house yesterday and was only gone for about two hours but found myself missing them like crazy. I thought about how their hair smelled as they laid on my chest, their little grunts, they way they wrap their tiny fingers around mine... going back to work when it is time is going to be very hard for me this time. I missed them terribly just for that little bit of time and I do not think that it will go away any time soon.
It is snowing like crazy outside now. Everything is white and beautiful... as long as you don't have to go out in it. Thank goodness we did our running yesterday and stocked up.
Well it is time to be off and get some stuff done. For those who I have not called yet... my apologies. We are just so busy right now that being able to sit and have a five min phone conversation is a little hard at the moment, but we will get their very soon.
