    That Was Fast...

    Okay, so I'm not crabby anymore. And I have two good reasons...Liesl and Leia.

    Yesterday, we took Liesl and Leia to their perinatal clinic appointment. This is something new our hospital does for preemies. They checked their developmental milestones, etc. to see if they're on track, especially since they were born a month early.

    I was shocked, to say the least, when they weighed the girls. Liesl is now 11lbs., 8oz. and Leia is now 11lbs., 3oz! At birth, Liesl weighed more than Leia, but was quickly passed up by her. Now, it appears that Liesl has caught up with and surpassed Leia's weight in the last few weeks. All this time, I kept calling Leia "the fat one," only to have Liesl be the bigger of the two, after all. She's even taller!

    Twin development never ceases to amaze me. What amazes me more is that, at birth, Liv was 5lbs., 5oz. At two months old, she was already 11lbs., 4oz. And she was born at 36 weeks, just like the twins.

    My girls...they sure reaped some huge benefits from Mama milk! Woohoo! Let's hear it for growing babies!

      When our girls were infants, the brunette twin was the little one. For years they were with a fraction and 1/2 lb of each other. She is now about an inch and 5 lbs bigger than her sister. It is amazing to watch them develop.
