Back to Work...

Well, today the girls went to Baby School for the first time (what we are calling Daycare to make me feel better) and did great - WAY better than Jeff and I did. I can't believe that I am already back at work... this all went way too fast! The teachers at their Baby School LOVE the girls. They were all so excited to see them. Aubrey did not sleep very well there today, which led to her being really grumpy tonight. But, she fell right asleep tonight so hopefully tomorrow will be better. They both spit up a little more than they normally do at home, but again hopefully they will be used to being fed by other people soon.

We have been so busy here, as you can tell by the lack of posting! We have been working on establishing a routine for the last few weeks to get ready for school. They continue to sleep really well! Jeff and I are so lucky. They started sleeping through the night at 3 months and will sleep anywhere from 7-11 hours at night. Adison is getting weaned off of her apnea monitor now. We are just using it as a security blanket for us at night. She has not had any episodes since July. We really only have her on it now when we're sleeping. They are both continuing to be great, happy babies... when Aubrey is in a good mood :)

We also took the girls to their 4 month old appointment a few weeks back. They both got 3 shots and 1 oral medicine. I LOVE the infant shot tech at the Doctor. She is amazing, they really only cry when they get the shot that burns. I would cry too!!! Their Pediatrician is not considering them preemies anymore. They are doing too well for that label. They are both in the 50% for their weight. Aubrey weighed 13.7 and Adison was 13.12. Adison is a little taller than Aubrey, she is in the 50% for height while Aubrey is lingering in the 25% for height. As soon as they can hold up their heads for a good bit on their own, we can start rice cereal. Oh, that is going to be fun if they continue spitting up!

Here are a few picture that my mom and my aunt took while they babysat the girls when I had a little procedure... Notice the big smiles!!!

My mom and I also took the girls to Family Day at my grandparents retirement home. Notice how proud my grandparents are. Every time one of their friends walked by, they would yell, "Hey - Come look at my twin great-granddaughters!" How cute!
