Happy Birthday!!

Today would have been the 40 week mark, and original due date for Parks and Wyatt. From here on out we are dealing with their two ages, their actual ages and their adjusted ages. Their actual ages are 6 weeks, 4 days, and their adjusted age is 1 day. We took Wyatt to the pediatrician today in order to do something about the reflux. She gave us some Zantac, and hopefully it will do the trick. He also got weighed today and is 5 pounds. Parks also recently got weighed and is 8 pounds. Speaking with the adjusted ages in mind, these are not bad weights. Furthermore, Wyatt is taking in 65 mL per feeding, and Parks is taking roughly 110 mL per feed. We looked up both their recommended feeding amounts for their ages and weights, and the guidelines are saying 49 mL and 79 mL, respectively. Hopefully, they will keep excelling and catch up to the normal growth curve sooner than we thought.

Your babies are quite adorable! I'm glad you're all home and healthy. Our twins (born 5 1/2 weeks early at 4 13 and 3 13 pounds), are now quadruple their birth weights at 9 months. It's amazing how fast they can catch up!

Congratulations on such success!!! Harper is on Zantac, too. She was doing the back-arching thing and it really helps to be on the medicine. Hopefully she and Wyatt will grow out of it as their esphoguses(?) mature! Keep posting those beautiful pictures.

Congrats and Happy Birthday (again) to the boys! It is so funny...I had not been home to check the blog the past few days. I had a dream last night that both boys were home. So I decided to hop on tonight to quickly check on their progress - and low and behold - they are home! How weird right?!?! Congrats on having the family all in one place - finally! And good luck on the sleep:)

-Amanda and Tim
