Actually they will be 5 weeks Thursday, but we had their 1 month appt today. Overall, they got a great report. He now outweighs her at 8lbs 7 oz and she weighs 7lbs 14 oz…both gaining nicely!!
Lately they are much more alert during the day and we are having fun talking to them and watching them grow…tracking objects, lifting their heads while on their tummy, and cooing just a bit!! They do tend to get very fussy late evening making for a very long night! As they were crying (or screaming, rather) during the appt for all their measurements and such, the pediatrician called them VERY COLICKY. Uh oh…that is what I was afraid of. Not much you can do ‘bout that! If any of you have any suggestions, PLEASE share! The doc said that it tends to peak at 3 months and could last until 5 months…WHAT!?!?! If you have had experience with Colic, how long did it last? One good thing…the doc said that babies who have colic tend to be very bright and be great leaders! Then we have 2 GENIUSES on our hands!
Here is a pic from Finley’s bath last night! Zane was not as happy afterwards, so I did not capture a pic of him!
