So, Ethan had a follow up appointment with a doctor about the procedure he had last Monday. Everything looked fine. So, we are no longer having to see that doctor!! (I just am glad we dont have to go back to the hospital if we don't have to. I like the doc, but don't like the stigma....)
Anyway, they weighed Ethan, with just a diaper on, and he weighs 13lbs 12oz. He is still such a peanut!! He has only gained 2 ozs since his procedure last Monday, but some of that could be attributed to him not feeling well for a couple of days afterword.
I then took my liberty to weigh Grant and Alex, since they were there with me and I was curious. But they were weighed with their clothes on, so subtract some on their weights. Grant weighed 16lbs 15.5oz. Alex weighed 16lbs 11.5oz. I think Grant and Alex really do probably weigh within 1oz of eachother. Grant was wearing bib overalls and Alex was just wearing pants, so I am sure those few extra ozs of Grant's were attributed to his clothes.
Any suggestions of putting some pounds on these little boys? They are getting to be so active that I cannot feed them enough. Plus, they only eat as much as their little tummies can handle. We are feeding them a baby food "dinner" at lunch and some fruit or another veggie, plus a 2oz bottle of breastmilk. Then at supper time they get rice or oatmeal (mixed with breastmilk) and a fruit or veggie. They get 4 formula bottles a day with between 6-8ozs in them. Ethan is still getting the higher calorie formula, at 24cals per oz. I don't want them to be overweight, but it would be nice to be able to say that Ethan is at least ON the growth chart (right now he is not even close to being on it even for adjusted age).
Otherwise, the boys are all healthy, happy, very vocal little humans!! They love their toys, but are a lot like their mama. They like to get out and GO!! It looks like we will have a very full, fun summer of getting out and going places.
