My twins baby dolls are three months old (sniff, sniff). Man oh man, I just can't believe it! I don't want to say I feel "cheated" because Blakers was in the hospital, but I kind of feel that way. I know we got to spend time with each other, but it just wasn't the same as being HOME.
Anyway, we're home now, where we've been for about a month and I have been terrible about updating you all on the boys. This is going to sound hard to believe, but I'm a little short on time these days. :)
Blake is doing so well! Honestly, things have been going great since he's been home. We've been doing well, along with him, on the dialysis stuff. A couple of alarms have gone off, but we've been able to troubleshoot all of them.
Blake is growing very well! He is 25 inches long and weighs 12 lbs. 14 oz. The doctors are so happy about that. They said we gave him the gift of "good genetics." Blake spends his days sleeping, eating (still only about 2 oz. at a time), kicking his legs and smiling (you sometimes have to work to get it out of him). He is definitely our laid-back twin.
Bowen is doing great too! I call him my child of extremes. He smiles easily, but can also get really fussy, really fast. Bowen isn't a big fan of laying on his back, but he's getting better since we bought one of those mats with all the stuff for him to stare at and grab at.
He is also about 12 lbs. 14 oz and is 24.5 inches long. Great news that the twins are growing at the same speed. Bowen spends his time sleeping (he sleeps more during the day than Blake), eating (about 4-5 oz. at a time), kicking, lots of kicking and smiling a lot (he even giggled today).
Here's one of the best things about the boys: they sleep at night!!! People come up to us all the time and ask if we get any sleep. Um...yeah. The boys go down about 9 PM and will sleep until about 6 AM. At that time, Blake usually fusses and I go in there and they are both usually up. Blake usually filled his diaper for me, but will go back to sleep. Bowen usually is ready for a bottle and likes to spend quality time with us and won't go back to sleep for awhile, which is ok.

They really are just so much fun! We can't wait for the coming months and look forward to posting more pictures and stories of Blake and Bowen.
