All caught up!!

Hello, everyone! I just wanted to let you know that the boys' checkup was wonderful! Their new weights are fabulous! Ross is 16lbs 15 oz and 25 inches long. Riley is now 17lbs 8oz and 25.5 inches long. Those weights put them at the 48th and 50th percentile for their REAL age! That means that they have already caught up from their low birth weights and are right on track in terms of weight gain, which is so exciting! They are still a little shorter than most babies their age, but they will probably catch up in the next few months in terms of height, too. Ross does need a little PT to help with his head tilt, but it's not a big deal. He should be all straightened out(pun intended!) in a few months. Thanks for reading!

Update

Hi, everybody! The boys and I are having a wonderful weekend! Yesterday, we went shopping with Grandma, Aunt Lys, and Reid and today we went out to lunch and to Target with Uncle Seth, Grandma, Aunt Lys, Uncle Marc, and Reid! The boys ate solid food out at a restaurant for the first time and they both did very well! They are doing so well with eating solids and are now able to eat a wide variety of foods. Luckily, their wonderful cousin, Reid, has already taste-tested most of the baby food out there and can give us suggestions on what the most delicious foods are! Tonight, the boys had macaroni and cheese for dinner and Hawaiian Delight for dessert. Reid was right! Both of my kiddos were thrilled! The Hawaiian Delight actually made Riley dance in his seat! Both boys are making more and more sounds and becoming more interested in reaching out and holding onto things. Riley has figured out how to make one of the toys on his bouncy seat play music and he pulls it constantly now! Ross figured it out and did it once, but he prefers to squeal and sing to make his own music. I posted a few new pics, but I haven't gotten any good ones of the boys together recently. I'll aim for that tomorrow! Thanks for checking in with us!

Weight gains!

Hi, everyone! I only have a couple of seconds to write, but since so many of you ask about the boys' weights, I wanted to let you know that Ross is catching up to Riley very quickly! We had to make a trip to the pediatrician today because Riley has been having a little more trouble with his reflux (he's fine...just needs a little more medicine) and while we were there, both kiddos got weighed. Riley is now 16lbs 11oz and Ross is at 16lbs 6oz! I can't believe that there is only a 5oz difference between them now. I will try to post some new pics and more news this weekend.
