Two Months

Where oh where does the time go? For me it's consumed in diapers, bottles, boobs, laundry and personal assistant to a very busy 4 year old!

So I'm late posting the Twins 2 month pictures and update but these days I'm lucky to get it done at all so I'm going to cut myself a little slack.

On with the cuteness ...

What's cooking: Both Rush and Nixon eat on average every 3 hours around the clock. They take turns nursing every other feeding now since each baby eats at least 4oz per feeding so we have a little alternating breast/formula thing going on.
Who's Sleeping: The longest either baby has slept is 3 1/2 hours at a stretch
Fashion: My little Pixie Nixon is still wearing Newborn size but Big boy Rush has moves on to 0-3 months size.
Personality: We have smiles, Nixon first then about a week later Rush. Nixon is doing a lot of coos when you talk to her and she is very reactive to her big sister! Rush loves a lot of eye contact and is starting to coo a little but is much more into studying the world around him. When Nix was fussing the other day I looked at Rush and said "that's your twin" he actually gave me a laugh out loud. I swear he was thinking don't look at me mom!

Mr T & I laugh: "his head is just big"
Miss C: "no really he is fat, fat like daddy"

A day of Doctors

It's been an eventful day full of Dr's visits! We started the morning off at the pediatric cardiologist for Nixon. At the twins 1 month visit our pediatrician heard a murmur in her heart. My entail reaction was pure panic! But the Dr, who we trust very much, assured us by the sounds if it it was most likely what's known as an innocent murmur and she will grow out of it. We choose not to tell anyone till after we had the visit to the cardiologist as to not cause undo worry. (Ok we told my mom, yep she worried). Nixon was a rock star during her EKG & Ecocardiogram! Knowing Nixon I expected her to shatter glass with her scream, she is not know for her tolerance or patience!!!

In non doctor terms Nixon is going to be just fine!!! She has two places in her heart that are causing the murmur and both should be just fine over time. Ill sure sleep better tonight knowing she will be a heart breaker rather than a broken heart!
Then it was off to the twins 2 month well check
Rush 10lbs 13oz
Nixon 9lbs 7oz
Growing like weeds!
Then came the always dreaded vaccines! Mr T and Miss C showed up just in time to help with the shots ( I suck at this part!) Miss C was a very supportive Big Sister!
