First and Second Doctor's Appointments

On Tuesday, October 2nd we took the babies to their first doctor appointment.
They were 5 days old.

Hudson weighed 5 lb and 14 oz. He was in the 5th percentile.
His weight had dropped from his birth weight of 6 lb 3 oz.
His length (18 inches) was in the 11th percentile and his head was in the 9th percentile. 
(Clearly the nurses didn't measure him the same way, because at the hospital he was 19 inches long.)
He was looking slightly jaundiced , but not badly.

Harper weighed 6 lb 2 oz.  She was in the 7th percentile. 
Her weight had dropped from her birth weight of 6 lb 5 oz.
Her length was still 19 inches and was in the 31st percentile.
Her head was in the 14th percentile.

They both got blood drawn and were troopers.

Love this picture of Hudson nibbling on Harper. 

Today we took them back to the doctor for their weight checks. 
They both gained 7 oz. since last week.
Hudson now weighs 6 lbs 6 oz.
Hudson's jaundice was gone.

Harper now weighs 6 lbs 9 oz.

We will be back in 2 weeks for their 1 month check up.

I love him nibbling those fingers, too!! How is Reagan adjusting? How are you adjusting? I had a lot of guilt about time I couldn't spend with Jax when I was busy with Aubree. That was my biggest adjustment and I soon discovered that kids are resilient and Jax was fine:) Are you BF? I can't imagine BF twins! Just taking care of one was stressful!! I am thinking of you!
