A September to Remeber!

Septebmer, sorry to say but no one will miss you and everyone hated you! Phew! What a rough month. Projectile vomiting, flipping out during bottles, not sleeping during the day or night. If you've seen one of their feedings when they are not happy then you know.

The doctor diagnosed the girls with Acid Reflux. That's why they've been so unhappy during their bottles. And we've just switched them to nonlactose folmula that has stemed the tide of vomit, also it's cheaper so that's a "win, win!" Unfortunately, it smells like month old pumpkin mush so we were denied the conveted "win, win, win" that is so sot after. Mmmm...sot is a funny word, doesn't look right.

Anyways the good news is that October is here and with it cooler nights and hope. With medicince and new formula things have really gotten better.

The girls are coming up on 11 weeks now. Despite the continual spitting and throwing up they are gaining plenty of weight. Matilda is now over 9 lbs and 21 1/2 inches. Elinor is a wopping 9 1/2 pounds and 20 3/4 inches long. With the extra "height" (is it really height if they spend their days scrunched up in a ball?) and the derth of weight Tilliford looks pretty skinny compared to Elinor. Both girls have 38 cm heads.

The good news about the numbers, other than they've gained like 3 pounds in a month, is that the ladies are now on the all important percentile scale!!! Yes! Now we can compare they to other babies in an endless discussion of "who's baby is better" with other parents. (Their weight and height are around the 5th and 10th percentiles and their heads are in the 25th so we got little bobble babies)

Babies also took advantage of free museum day, thanks Tien and Long, and went to the Nasher Sculpture Museum. Abby's baby, I can't tell the difference, looked at the art the whole time. My baby mostly slept. We were both pleased with the respective outcomes.

This weekend we went to the FW zoo and saw the baby lions and tigers. The lions were born two days after the girls, so the friends.

enjoy the pics of daddy's favorite time of the day...and one of bath time, too.

Watch Out Tilliford's Hungry!

The girls are doing fine. Not much news. We'll go to the doctor pretty soon and they're coming up on 2 months old. Look at how big they're getting! They are basically out of premie clothes although to telll the truth its just that they have gianormous bellies, everything else is quite slinder and form fitting.
