Hi, all! The boys had their 2 month check up today (can you believe they are two months old, already??) and they are doing great! Ross now weighs 7 lbs 5 oz and is 19 1/2 inches long. Riley weighs 9lbs 1 oz and is 20 3/4 inches long. Both boys are very healthy and the doctor is thrilled with their progress! They did have to get several shots, which was pretty awful, but so far, they are not having any bad reactions. I apologize for not posting any new pictures. I had a whole roll of film that didn't turn out and so I really don't have any to post right now. I will take some more in the next few days and get them online ASAP! Gotta run.....Ross just woke up and he is HUNGRY!!

Hi, everyone! Again, I'm sorry that I haven't been posting as frequently, but these little guys are keeping me pretty busy! Both boys are doing so well! They are more and more alert and really starting to look around and look for me when they hear my voice. Ross has been having a little trouble with his feedings, so we went to the pediatrician and found out that he has reflux! He is now taking Zantac and should be just fine. Apparently, relux is pretty common in preemies and nothing to worry about. He should outgrow it in a year or so. While we were at the doctor's, both boys got weighed. I almost fell over when I saw the weights: Ross is now 7lbs and Riley is now 8 lbs 11oz!!! They are growing so fast! They are 8 weeks old today and have done so amazingly well! I am so grateful! Next week, they have their two month check up and have to get a few shots. Yikes!! I will post some new pics as soon as I can, but it will probably be a few days. Thanks so much for all of your emails and calls!

Hi! I know it's been quite a while since I have posted, but the boys have been keeping me busy! They are both doing beautifully, growing stronger and bigger each day. Ross, especially, is far more alert and active than he was before. Riley is still enjoying lots of sleeping between feedings. Both kiddos love to cuddle and I am always thrilled when we have time to relax and cuddle when they are awake. Thanks again to everyone who has been checking on us and calling! We appreciate it!
