Synagis & Weights

Yesterday the babies had their third and final synagis shots that help protect them from RSV. I hate having them get shots because they cry like they never have before but it's for their own good. The nice thing about yesterday was that they all were weighed.

Kesleigh: 14 lbs, 12.7 oz. (91st percentile)...can you say chunky monkey??
Preston: 10 lbs, 5.8 oz. (2nd percentile)
Gavin: 12 lbs. (15th percentile)

Sick Baby

We have a sick baby!
Gavin has somehow gotten a cough. He's still as happy as ever and coos and smiles all the time but if he cries he will start coughing. So sad to hear. I have put a warm mist vaporizer with Vicks baby rub going in the nursery and have been giving him menthol baths and putting baby VIcks on his chest, back, and feet every night.

We don't know how he got sick because we are so careful to screen people that come into the house but any one of us could have brought germs in from outside (Bart from school, me from the hospital etc.) He seems to be doing OK and the others have managed to stay well. We are being very careful about pacifiers, burp clothes, etc. I am spraying down the couches and swings every night with Lysol to keep everyone else healthy (hopefully it works).

Who Would Think?

Who would think that this angelic face (Preston) could produce screams louder than the other two combined?

Here's an update on what the babies are up to lately:

Kesleigh: Loves sitting up and seeing what's going on in the room. She is starting to be very vocal and has rolled over from her stomach onto her back during tummy time. She is tipping the scales at over 12 lbs. She really only cries when she is hungry:)

Preston: He is a very vocal child, let's just say that:) He is very quick (and loud) to let you know when he is not happy. It sounds like we are removing a limb by the way he cries. He has developed an umbilical hernia where his belly button is way out. We have talked to the pediatrician about this and she said most of them fix themselves by the time they are five years old but we might have a surgeon look at it and get their thoughts.

Gavin: He is Mr. Smiley of the bunch. He is also getting to be vocal, cooing and smiling most of the time. He too has rolled over from his tummy to his back during tummy time.

All babies have dropped the midnight feeding and are now sleeping from 9:30-10 PM until about 4 AM. Every day they seem to do something new and it's just so exciting to watch them grow.
