4 weeks old!

I can't believe my sweet babies are 4 weeks old today! They are both doing great! They were weighed on Monday when we went for a visit to the lactation consultant and Emma weighed in at 7lbs 3oz and Max was up to 6lbs 14oz! Emma LOVES to eat and Max loves to sleep :) They have both been on a 3 hour feeding schedule since we were in the hospital and it really seems to be working well for all of us. Breastfeeding is going ok - I'm still a little behind on my milk production, but the LC seemed confident that I would be able to catch up in a few more weeks and may be able to drop the formula supplements - luckily neither of them have any latching issues, so fingers crossed it will work out - we shall see. Max is still very laid bad and doesn't seemed to be bothered by much, but he does have some reflux because of his flappy larynx which causes him to eat VERY SLOWLY - which is a pain in the butt at midnight and 3am when you just want to get it over with and go back to bed! Emma on the other hand will gulp it all down and still want more. She really likes her "wake time" and loves looking at her self in the mirror - such a girl! Both babies are so good - we are very blessed!

Here are some pics from the last couple weeks:

Had to throw this one in - gotta love a Lucy snarl :)

Max rockin his Aggie gear - I guess it helped 'cause they won - whoop (strickly for Jason's sake)

Too bad the same luck didn't work for Emma and her Longhorn gear, but we still love 'em - Hook 'em Horns!
