Shots and more shots!

We had a pediatrician appt this morning for check up and vaccines. They were little troopers when getting their 5 shots. All are doing well although Brea and Brody have umbilical hernias but Dr. said most correct themselves so isn't too concerned at this point.
They will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. Here are the stats on them:
Brea: Weighed 9 lbs 10 oz and was 19 and 1/2 inches long
Gage: 9 lbs 10 oz and 20 inches long
Brody: 8 lbs 10 oz and 20 and 1/4 inches long
They are being measured on the normal scale and not the preemie scale for now and seem to be growing and progressing at a good rate according to the Dr. Brody still has his fussy nights and we are still trying to figure that out and they aren't sleeping real long yet but hopefully that will come with time.
Well I hear crying so I better go just wanted to give a quick update.

Another milestone

Well the actual due date was Feb. 14th and the babies are now over a month old. We decided to weigh them today again since they seem to be growing and changing so fast.
Brea now weighs 8 lbs
Gage 7 lbs 10 oz
Brody 7 lbs 4 oz
This week may be interesting. Grandma Hug and Grandma Recker have been so nice taking turns to come and stay with us during the week to get up and help all night with the feedings and be here during the day while daddy works but this is the first week I am going to attempt to do the night shift alone. Luckily aunt Marsha is going to help out a few days this week so maybe I can get a nap if the babies decide to stay up all night. They seem to be a bit of night owls right now. I actually got 2 full nights of sleep fri and sat thanks to Jeff taking the night shift as I did not feel well and thought I was coming down with something. I haven't slept that long or good in months and it helped so much!
We just want to thank our family and everyone for all of their help because we don't know what we would have done or would do without all of the help!

The latest!

Well it's been a hectic few days but luckily all of the babies are sleeping right now so I have a couple minutes to update the blog. Brody has been fussy for the past week with the worst being sunday and yesterday. We are hoping he doesn't have colic. I think he finally wore himself out last night enough to sleep.
Brea still wakes up crying wanting to be held a lot so hopefully we can figure something out to get her to sleep a little more independently.
Gage is still the most laid back one but he is finally starting to eat more and his face is finally starting to fill out and not look so thin.
On a funny note, we had an interesting time with their baths the other night. Brea decided to wet on daddy's shirt as he carried her to the bathtub. I told him it was just because he had his Red's t-shirt on and clearly she is an Indian's fan like her mom. Brody then wet all over his crib when we were changing him. Then after Brea was clean and changed she decided to spit up all over her clean jammies and her mom. Gage was the only one that had an uneventful night although he was probably scared to do anything wrong as a couple of weeks ago when his diaper leaked daddy changed him in the middle of the night and was so tired he put Brea's clothes on him. Poor little guy. Well I hear crying. Better go!

Update on weights!

Well tonight we weighed the trio to see how much they have gained since they have been eating quite a bit and it has been a couple weeks since their last weight check.
Brea is now a whopping 6 lbs 1 oz
Gage is 5 lbs 10 oz
& Brody is 5 lbs is 9 oz

They are all getting really strong and good at holding their necks up and looking around more and more. It will be interesting to see how much they weigh on their actual due date of Feb. 14 th.

Relaxing after bath time!
