Quick Update

The babes had their three month doctor's appointment this week.  Brady is now two feet tall and weighs 12 pounds, 7 ounces and has transitioned almost exclusively to six month clothes.  Rooney is 23 inches long and weighs 11 pounds, 2 ounces.  Her acid reflux seems to be turning a corner, we still struggle with it, but it seems to continue to get better. 

Brady is definitely our sleeper. He is in bed no later than 8:00 and more often than not sleeps for 10 or 11 hours (a few times 12 hrs).   Rooney typically gets up to eat twice a night and often times we find her waking up her brother by kicking or hitting him...or so we thought.  With the help of Grandma G. visiting this week, we decided to separate them at night.  What we learned was that the culprit was not our feisty Rooney, but rather our sweet Brady.  While alone in the crib the first night, I found the little rascal in all four corners, crying once because his foot was stuck and he had kicked the mobile button enough to turn it on twice. Quite impressive in my opinion because he doesn't rollover yet and slept through all the movement!!  Miss Rooney on the other hand was found peacefully sleeping in the exact same position she was placed in.  Whoops.  I guess I was blaming the wrong kid.  Either way, the days of them sharing a crib are over!

Before our twins were born I thought they would definitely sleep together but they don't. I suppose it is just what works. Any sleep is a great thing. Glad they are doing so well.
