We are 9 Weeks Old!

Can you believe that we are 9 weeks old already? Wow, time does fly...
Well, both Addie and Alex were tested for RSV and thank goodness, both of their tests came back negative. So, we are just fighting the nasty common cold. On Monday, Addie also had lab work done to check how her blood count is doing. The not so good news was that her blood clotted and therefore, they were not able to test it. On Tuesday, mommy and great grandma loaded up the twins and went all the way back to the hospital for more lab work! Boy, it is a chore to get both of them ready to go... I was not leaving the hospital this time until I was sure that her blood sample would work. So, we had time to spare. We went to visit some of mommies nurses during this spare time.
Great news is that Addie's lab work came back much better than in previous weeks. Her red blood count is still on the low side. However, it is increasing, which is a good sign. Our pediatrician does not see a need to retest again unless we have more issues. Our next trip to the doctor is on Monday for a 2 month check-up and shots.
Here are some pictures from this week!

I am sure that I cannot trick you in this photo as Alex is much larger than Addie..
Alex is for sure out of all preemie and most of his newborn clothes. Addie is out of all preemie and into newborn clothes. I cannot believe how much they have grown in just a few days! Any ideas yet as to who they look like? It is so funny as one says that they look like mom and another says that they look like dad....

On Wednesday, mommy found a time and life saver! Both Addie and Alex can
be fed at the same time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is no way that I thought that this would work, but I gave it a shot and sure enough, it did! I don't know that I will be able to feed them like this everytime, but we will for sure try. I placed both Addie and Alex sideways in their own boppy pillow and fed them. It worked like a charm!

Who is this???????????? Addie is ready to eat!

Here is Alex looking at himself through the glass on the fireplace.

Uncle Mike has a good time holding Addie and Alex. How did you guess that Addie is the one awake. I am telling you that she is the "life of the party"!
