Things Are Good

Just a quick update.

The boys had their echos and they both do have innocent heart murmurs - absolutely nothing to be worried about.

They are both, however, growing like fertilized weeds. At their appointments, Zach weighed 15lbs 9oz and Max weighed 15lbs 5 oz. Both were 24" long - officially two footers.

They're doing great - laughing, smiling, interacting and everything. Never thought parenthood would be this cool.

Will blog more later.

Great boys, improving mama

Good Evening,

Zachary and I are still awake, Max and Dustin are sleeping. Zachary seems to have a little bit of an issue with bedtime. He is in a good mood, kicking and playing, but NOT sleeping! :P Right now that is. Actually, the twins are doing amazing with sleep. They go to bed around 8 p.m. and don't wake up for their first bottle until about 5 a.m. Yeah. They rock.

They turned three months this week. Unbelievable. They are getting so big. Max laughed at my mom yesterday and Zach is so close. They are cooing and "talking." They smile all the time, super fun!

We are getting our schedule down and they are doing really well. I weighed them today on the bathroom scale and they were both around 15 lbs.! They are in 6/9 month clothes!! How did they get so big so fast?! Tues. Aug. 11th, we take them both to the cardiologist. They are seeing Dr. Bass in Maple Grove. They will have echocardiograms first, then see the doctor. I am pretty sure that their murmurs are innocent considering their weight gain.

I am feeling better, I had an emergency D & C yesterday afternoon. I had been having some problems with TERRIBLE bleeding and just some general malaise. I had an ultrasound and bloodwork on Thurs. which all came back "normal." I went to see the OB on Friday at 12:30 p.m., she sent me straight from the clinic to the hospital. Dustin had took a 1/2 day, so he came into the hospital and the babysitter stayed with the twins until my mom came. We were home about 4:15 p.m. I am feeling a ton better. There was still some tissue in my uterus that didn't pass. I guess it is pretty common with fraternal twin C-Sections. Either way, I am feeling much better.

Well, I better get the work done that I came online to do. Zachary is still kicking me in the thigh, smiling! LOVE IT!

Love to all, Sara
