Our girls are 2 weeks 3 days old (corrected age) today. Mikelle was 6lbs 14oz and Rianne was 6lbs 6oz at our last visit with the pediatrician last Tuesday. They both are doing great and growing well. We visited the pulmonologist on Thursday last week to have their apnea monitors checked. Mikelle seemed to do really well and Rianne did ok. Their doctor said that we can turn the monitor off when we are with them during feeding and tummy time. We were advised to put them on monitors when sleeping. We are to go back for another check up with the pulmonologist in two weeks. The doctor might decide to take them off of the monitors if we find that they've done well since the last visit. Their pediatrician increased their Prevacid dosing to 3ml/day for their acid reflux. They are as well taking thickened milk still.

We have been pretty busy since they came home. Though we try to take turns for night feedings so one of us can have a longer stretch of sleep, finding enough rest is still very challenging. I am so glad that my mom is back to help us out. With many sleepless nights, I don't think it would be possible to be productive during the day without my mom's help.

The weather outside was beautiful this afternoon and so we decided to go to a nearby park for some sun and fresh air. I enjoyed throwing an Aerobie with Carl and it was very refreshing to be able to go out and do some stretches and running.

Here are some of our pictures:

aw, so fun that you can go out and have fun now! They've sure grown a lot since they came home from the hospital! They finally caught up to Paul's birth weight...

Everyone looks great -- even sleep-deprived parents!
