My little (BIG) 7 weekers!

Today is 7 weeks since the birth of my little miracle babies. It's hard to believe that 49 days ago these little ones were in my belly and then in just 3 minutes they were here. A lot has changed since then. First, they are much bigger. Today Sarah weighed 7lbs. 10ozs. That means she has grown 3lbs. 15ozs. in just 7 weeks. Today Jake weighed 10lbs. 4ozs. He has gained 5lbs. 10ozs. Today Luke weighed 8lbs. 8ozs. which is 3lbs. 15ozs. more than when he was born. Obviously they are breathing on their own and eating much more than their birth day. Also now they look at us when we talk to them. You can tell they recognize us and know who we are. It's so cool! They are also sleeping longer at night (which is a welcome change) and staying awake more during the day. Currently they are averaging 4-4 1/2 hours between feedings during the night. Sometimes we even get a 5 hour snap. Woohoo! In just 10 short days they will be 2 months old. Oh, and yesterday was my due date- February 23rd. Can you imagine if they'd stayed in my belly that long?!?!
