Wednesday we went back to the pediatrician for a weight check. Lyla weighed 5.2 at our last weight check, Friday the 7th -- 5 days earlier and Pressley had weighed 6.11. On Wednesday Lyla weighed 5.6 and a half and Pressley weighed a whoppin 7.8! They are doing WONDERFULLY!!!
So, we are seeing some personality coming through... Lyla acts nothing like a newborn, her facial expressions and the way she moves her body is hilarious, she truly seems like she is several months old. Pressley acts more her age -- just loves to be held and cuddled. Most of the pictures we have of her she is in someones arms, she does not like to be put down. It'll be interesting to see if Lyla turns out to be more independent and Pressley more shy and cuddly.
Pressley has also been very sick. She has an awful cold that keeps her awake at night and makes it hard for her to eat -- she can't breathe while drinking. Please pray for her! Its so pitiful. She has been to see the doctor twice -- yes, we are overprotective parents, but can you blame us?!? And there is just nothing we can do right now, she is too young for medicine. So, we use saline drops in her nose which give her temporary relief but the congestion comes back quickly. The fact that shes not feeling well could be why she is so cuddly.
And, what you've all been waiting for, more pictures:
Here are the girls the first time they sat in a boppy seat, they seem to enjoy it, don't they? We have 2 so they can both sit in them at the same time.
Daddy and his girls! Can you tell he didn't get much sleep the night before?
Mommy and her girls! (and Tucker)
Passie babies. They both LOVE them. But I'm beginning to hate them. I especially hate them at 3am when they keep popping in and out of their mouths. We are trying not to use them at night, but sometimes thats what they need to calm down -- especially Pressley, but I'm hoping this is because of her congestion too -- she just wants something to soothe her.
