One Month/Dr. Visits

I wanted to put up some pictures/stats from their first few dr. visits. Their discharge from the hospital weights were Henry 5.5 and Holden 5.3, and we went to the doctor's office for the first time the Thursday after we were discharged. They gained some weight, up to 5.10 and 5.8. At the next check, around 2 weeks, they were up to 6.1 and 5.15! And finally, we made it to the one month mark! It wasn't the most remarkable month, they weren't doing much of anything yet, but it was a good milestone for us anyway. Henry was 7 pounds, 8 ounces, and Holden was 7 pounds, 6 ounces! They were still in newborn size diapers, but we were finishing them up. They slept in swaddles and in the car seats to help with the reflux/spitting up. The boys got up still every 3 to 4 hours at night to eat. They loved to be held, were easy to console, didn't cry much, and were very sweet! Not much social interaction or smiles yet. Our pediatrician calls them "black holes," as in, you give and give and get nothing back yet! Although we wouldn't say nothing, they're pretty darn cute to look at and cuddle. 

And this is where I started my series of month birthday pictures! Henry gets the brown bear, and Holden gets the panda. (We try to keep Henry on the left in most pictures, but it doesn't work out all the time. At least in these we'll know for sure who's who. :) And month one was not my was hard to prop them up, and they didn't feel like modeling for long. Also, I did have the pictures cropped and edited a little better, but they didn't show up on the blog that way! I'll keep working on the picture quality. :)
