6 weeks and 4 days old!

Hello blog followers!  We are growing, growing, growing!  We had another weight check today (I managed to take both babies to the doctor and McDonald's drive through for a Diet!) and Oliver weighed in at 10 pounds 4 ounces and Vivian weighed in at 7 pound 12 ounces!  Oliver is up a pound in 2 weeks and Vivian is up a pound and 5 ounces in 2 weeks!  We've changed a few things in the past week or so.  Vivian now gets her milk with oatmeal in it to thicken it so she can drink it more safely and help with reflux.  Today the doctor started her on Prilosec to help with her reflux so we are hopeful this well help her rest better.  Both babies are good sleepers, still waking about every 3 hours to eat, but Vivian cries out occasionally and arches her back when she refluxes.  We will be starting a little stricter schedule when they reach 8 weeks to promote sleeping through the night (we are just hopeful for 6 straight hours or so initially, eventually stretching to even 12 hours!)  With me going back to work, the last week of September, Matt will be on his own 2 nights a week plus working so anything we can do to get them sleeping longer stretches at night will be beneficial!  We go back to the doctor in 2 weeks to get there 2 month vaccines...where does the time go?!?!?

Oliver frequently finds his thumb..very cute.

Vivian has a little chat with Grandpa Hursh.

Josephine came over to play wearing her new shoes!  Hopefully, she'll pass those on to Vivian when she's big enough to wear them.

Play time!

Still a noticeable size difference.  Today Oliver weighed 10 lbs. 4 oz. and Vivian weighed 7 lbs. 12 oz.

Bella found her way underneath a burp cloth to use as a blanket!

Zoe is such a good guard dog ; )

The babes are looking great and getting so big! I hope the Prilosec helps little Viv's tummy feel better.

Love you all!
