Thursday

Jaxon's weight this morning was 6lbs, 13.5oz...so he's gaining at home! He's sooo close to about an ounce a day. He met with a feeding therapist today at the house. The specialist observed me bottle/tube feed Jax. His recommendation was to add one more bottle feed to our day since he's keeping his food down. So we'll start his pump-feed a little later in the evening and give him a bottle at 9pm. He took the most from his bottle today than he ever has - 28ml out of 40ml. Starting Sunday, we'll be adding 5ml's to each feeding.
Jax has a pediatrician appt tomorrow and will be seeing g.i. at Children's Hospital in less than 2 weeks. We'll see what they think about stopping the Reglan medication at that time.
Brady is his handsome little self causing trouble as much as he can :)

Tummy time this morning.

Jax finally looks similar in size to Brady...at least in photos now!
Jax never seems to be the biggest fan of Brady
Too cute!

They do look a lot alike now! I bet Brady is wishing he was still skinny (and not so heavy when he lays on him).

Hi,I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jen, I'm on the Nest as daves_sweetpea. I'm the proud auntie to twin nephews so I love to lurk on the Multiples board. I'm sorry you've had problems with some ignorant lurkers, but I do want you to know that there are many more out there who think that you are doing a great job with your little boys! Thanks for your blog!
