3 week stats

At birth:
JD was 6 lbs 10.5 oz and 18.5 inches
Maia was 5 lbs 4 oz and 18 inches

At 2.5 weeks:
JD was 7 lbs 10 oz and 20.5 inches
Maia was 5 lbs 13 oz and 20 inches

JD & Maia eat about every 3 hours. JD consistently eats 3.5-4 oz. Maia has more highs and lows, she usually eats only 2 oz at afternoon feedings but has a few 3 or 3.5 oz meals in the morning and evening. JD still eats a lot faster than Maia, who still requires a little coaxing to eat. Obviously both are doing well on growth though!

We are all SO SO SO lucky to have Grandma visiting for about a month from Utah to help take care of babies and keep the new mom sane! A lot of other visitors have helped with holding babies, bringing meals and groceries, and giving mom a chance to take a nap. Thank you everyone, we couldn't do it without you, which includes many people in addition to those pictured below!

We've had lots of family visit us! Grandma and Grandpa....
Cousin Audrey...
Uncle Russ & Aunt Taylor...
And still lots of attention from parents! Tired but happy mommy....
Smitten daddy....
And lucky for everyone's health we still sleep a lot....and we are pretty dang cute doing it!
