7 Weeks Old Today

Can you believe it? Alex and Addie are 7 weeks old today. It is so hard to believe that tomorrow is their original due date. Once tomorrow arrives, Alex will have been home 3 weeks and Addie 2 weeks. It is so hard to believe! Time goes by so fast......
Right now, we are on an every four hour feeding schedule, which is very nice. Once Addie's blood count increases, I htink that they will be able to go longer at night. Right now, there are times that we are having to wake them to eat...

On Wednesday, Alex switched to a big boy bottle.....
Until now, we were still using bottles that he used while in the NICU.
But, when he started sucking so hard that he was flatening the nipple, I knew that it
was time to move forward. We have a few different types of bottles here at home ready to try. However, I am very pleased with how he did with the 4oz. Avent bottle. The other plus is that they are super easy to clean. Way to go Alex! As of right now, he is normally taking 4 ounces every 4 hours. He is also getting better at giving us burps!

Tonight, Addie and Alex were in the pack n play. When mommy and grandma looked in on the twins, here is what we saw. Yes, Addie has a green pacifier, but Alex decided that he wanted some of it too............. The video below is live! How funny.......
I find it so cute that no matter how far apart you lay these two, they find a way to basically be right next to eachother.......


Enjoy this video of Alex and Addie..............................
