It was hard to get them both to sit up and look at me at the same time... (these are the best of the 60 pictures I took!)
And then to also see their smiles! This was Hope while I was setting the lighting. Much more interactive when they can actually see my face.
What's over there, Mom?
One smile, one not so sure!
What big eyes we have!
On June 1st (when we were in Seattle) they weighed 11 lbs 4 oz (Hope) and 11 lbs 2 oz (Joy).
On Friday at their 3 months checkup they both weighed in at 12 lbs 2 oz and right around 23 inches. Yes, that's a pound in two weeks... Joy might also be slightly shorter, but it's also hard to get an accurate length on a wiggling baby! Not a weight problem with these girls - 50th percentiles and look at those double chins!
Just prior to a sneeze!
So, even with all the nursing issues it seems they are doing just fine. The doctor said he isn't worried that Joy isn't getting enough to eat and apparently it can be perfectly normal for a baby to go 3 or 4 days or even more without pooping. It's just a big difference from the boys who pooped every time they ate!
Now if I could just convince her to suck right and it didn't hurt we'd be just fine! I have a few more options of people to see and it does seem to be slightly better...
Still wearing 3 month clothes, but not for much longer. I'm glad I found these adorable matching outfits last week from my friend Edna, or they would have outgrown them before they got to wear them. And I probably have twice as many 3-6 month clothes... I guess that's one advantage to spit up queens... they get to wear more cute clothes!
Oh, and sleeping for longer stretches at night, last night 8 hours each, but starting at 8pm... and sometimes they like to offset each other for 2 hours... so no, I'm still not getting much sleep, but it is better than before!
