The twins were one month old on Wednesday! We survived! Henry and Hannah are doing great. They are eating, sleeping, peeing and pooping like champs.

MONTHLY UPDATE: Food - 100% breast milk on a 3 hour schedule. We will wake them up to feed during the day but let them sleep at night until they are hungry. We are nursing and giving them bottles. This is wonderful because Nick can play a big roll in the feedings and can give me a break at night. Sleep - They sleep a lot! Maybe 16-20 hours a day. They do not always sleep at the same time which decreases my productivity. They are sleeping better at night. Nick and I are getting 4 to 6 hours a night. Clothes - Newborn size onsies and pants. Henry is just now able to fit into some of his outfits, Hannah is still small so clothes just kind of hang on her. Weight - Hannah 5lbs 12oz Henry we find out 12/19 Height - Hannah 19 inches Henry we find out 12/19 Diapers - Pampers Newborn size (If you are wondering what the twins want for Christmas the answer is diapers! We go through a pack every 2 days!) Health - You may notice a red mark just above Hannah's lip. This is called a Hemangioma or benign blood tumor. We saw a pediatric dermatologist this week about it. Due to its location we are going to start a treatment plan. Hannah will take medicine two times a day for the first year of her life to make the Hemangioma go away and prevent longterm issues. We think she is beautiful! Fun Facts - Henry sneezes in fours, Hannah is a very easy, laid back baby - hopefully this won't change :)
Big sister wanted to get in on the photo shoot! Our THREE kids!
