- Bilirubin drama is behind us! No more heel sticks and traveling 45 mins across town every 3 days woohoo!
- The nights are getting more interesting. The “sleepy newborn” phase is behind us officially. The new norm seems to be they both sleep 2-3 hours the first stretch, then are awake and fussy on and off from 12-3am, the again start sleeping 2-3 hour stretches. From 12-3 my mom and I have the most inane conversations, we are often laughing hysterically, or I am crying and cussing and threatening to check myself into the psych ward, depends on the night.
- As of 2 days ago Joey’s weight is 5lbs 13 oz (from 5lbs 1oz at birth) and Tommys’s weight is 6lbs 7oz (from 5lbs 11oz at birth). So at least the endless amount of feedings a day seem to be productive!
- Tommy just yesterday started the smallest of smiles in reaction to our faces! We thought it was a fluke but he’s done it a bunch of times today. Google says this shouldn’t happen until 6-12 weeks so he is obviously gifted. Poor Joey.
