5 pounds!

Today I am celebrating my bday—the best one of my entire life. 🙂 It began with snuggles with the babies. Then we had an 8am appointment at the ped. Both babies have surpassed their birth weights and made it to the 5 pound mark!!!!! GREAT JOB, BABIES!!! (We’re now cleared to do tummy time with them, which I’ve really been looking forward to.) We love these kiddos so much. Not sure if you can tell from my iPhone photos, but their little cheeks (and tummies) are definitely chubbing up. Yip!!!

Current most-used nicknames for Lu.cy: Luce De Goose. Cookie Monster. Honey. Honey Pie. Lucy Pie. Current most-used nicknames for Char.lie: Super Mario. CW. C-dog. Little Guy. Charlie Poo.

  10. So cute! They’re definitely getting chub cheeks… LOVE!

  11. Happy Birthday!!! Your little ones are too cute! You sound like you are doing great! The continuous feedings and diaper changes sound exhausting, but as always, you have an amazing attitude and perspective! Can’t wait to hear all your tips and tricks as these little ones grow so I can copy! ; )

    Happy Birthday! Best present ever, isn’t it? (P was born 3 days before my b-day).

    They look pretty chubby, and totally cute. I still love their names, and now I adore their nicknames. 🙂

    Happy birthday Egg!!! What wonderful gift indeed. Loving the look on C-dog’s face. Precious.

  16. Happy birthday! And big congrats on getting those babies to the 5 lb mark! That is a *huge* accomplishment, so you must be doing it right! Those are some mighty cute babies. I remember that it took one of my boys three or so weeks to make it back to birth weight, and it was so emotional for me, even though it was my chunk-chunk baby who was slow to regain his weight. When you’re breast feeding, and when you have twins, it feels like you have to work that much harder to “defend” the decision to breast feed– I think what I mean is that I understand what an accomplishment it is to see your baby thrive, how your heart swells when there’s proof (finally!) that your body is doing this nourishing thing right. So YAY! Good for you! So happy!

  17. Happy Birthday!!!!

    And congrats on hitting 5 pounds. They are so lovely.

  18. happy birthday!!! yay for 10 lbs of babies, great job with the feedings!

  19. Happy birthday! Awesome news on the weight gain. They are going to be total chubsters before you know it! I can totally tell the difference, even from the last two photos! They are BEYOND cute and I love their nicknames. We need to come up with some for our girls. We haven’t once called them Ting and Ling since they were born and haven’t been creative yet 🙂
    So, so, so happy for you my friend. Hope you had a wonderful day! xoxo
