Gaining Weight

Today when James and I were visiting Phoebe and Piper we happened to ask what their current weight was.  Now weight is not a factor in the girls coming home, but even so we want to see steady weight gain and growth (obviously). :-)  I was shocked when the nurse said that Piper was almost 4 pounds and Phoebe was nearly 3 pounds 13 ounces.  This was music to our ears.  It means that the around the clock pumping I am doing is paying off.  Even though it is an exhausting challenge there is nothing I wouldn't do for our little angels.

I was also surprised to see that the night nurse finally dressed the girls in some clothes that we brought from home.  The outfits they have on in the pictures are from my sweet friend Erin.  Thank you Erin, the girls look adorable!  The ruffles on the booty are too cute.  I can hardly wait until the preemie clothes are too small and no longer fit.

Gosh they are cute! They look like little dolls! I am very proud of your pumping. I know it is not fun, and it is tiring. But as you can see-100% worth it! Good job mommy!

The girls look so cute in their new clothes. And great job on the mommy milk. You should be really proud of yourself.
Oh don't forget to ask their blood type, just so you know. My twins have different blood types. Funny hun?!
