Packin' on the Pounds!

This afternoon, we took Tori & Tanner to the doctor for their first round (#1 of 6) of Synagis injections (a vaccine that guards preemies against RSV). While there, we were able to check their weights. Needless to say, they are growing like crazy! Just since our appointment last week, Tanner gained a pound and Tori gained almost a pound.

Tanner 9 lbs.!!!!!!!
Tori 7 lbs., 13 oz. (almost 8 lbs.!)

They're both doing very well, just eating all the time (which explains the growth spurt). For about the past week, they've been wanting to eat every two hours during the day instead of every three hours. Luckily, they're still going about four hours on average during the night, bringing our night feedings down to two instead of three. Brad and I have figured out a pretty good system so far, so we're both able to get a decent night's sleep. I've been getting an average of 4-5 hours solid and Brad has been averaging about 6-7 hours... not too bad!
