Naptime and Pacifiers

Back in September I was napping with the little ones in my belly. We would take two naps a day - one on my lunch break and the other as soon as we got home from work.

I couldn't help myself today to take them both and snuggle like old times. They both slept longer and more soundly than usual. I wonder if being back together had something to do with it. Note, Max and his pacifier and Vivi sucking on her hand. I love learning who they are and their differences.

Somethings this week - Vivi mimicked Rudy raising her arms up in the air several times in a row. So cool. And she also slept 8.5 hours through the night without waking. Max is learning to calm himself down and not relying on us as much to do that for him. He gets EXTREMELY upset when hungry and will have a little freak out. We've notice that subside a bit this week. He also is full of smiles for Mommy. That, my friends, makes this all worth it.

Weight Update: Max is now 10.3 lbs and Vivi is 9 even! Officially, they are off the preemie scale and now are between the 10 and 25th percentile for weight. Their height is still on the preemie scale.

We've come up with creative ways to hold Max's paci in. And no, we don't leave the room with him like this but it comes in handy not having to place it back in his mouth every 2 seconds.
