Whew! Catching Up....

** Update ** I took the babies to the doctor today (9/23) to discuss some feeding issues (actually Jack was along too which made it my first excursion alone with all three kids....needless to say we weren't exactly speedy). The big news is that Nathan weighs in at a whopping 7lbs 15oz (up from 5lbs 8oz on 9/3)!!! Thus, he no longer needs the special high calorie preemie formula we've had to use because he's just getting fat on it. :-) Matthew is also getting bigger although not by quite the same margin - he is 6lbs 6oz which is a definite gain from our last weigh-in on 9/3 where he was 4lbs 12oz.

Hard to get a shot where everybody looks good....

Sorry for the delay in seems like I never have a free moment any more! We've done a lot since the last post. First, Jay took Jack to see a performance of Sesame Street Live up at the base where he works. It was a free show put on by the USO. They gave out lots of free stuff (including DVDs) and it was fun for all the kids. We also ventured out to see the huge waves (20ft surf) at our beach from the hurricane. The wind gusts were tremendous but it was worth it to see the amazing surf. The twins are now over a month old and continue to do well. They are both growing although we don't know how much they weigh right now because we don't go back to the doctor until the beginning of October. Nathan definitely is taking on the look of a newborn and is even sporting a double chin now! :-) Matthew is gaining but still has the look of a preemie. Hopefully he'll catch up soon!

That is great about the weight gain. It is good to know that all of your hard effort is paying off!
