Gaining Weight!!

Since coming home, we have become well acquainted with the pediatrician--checking weights twice weekly. However, today the girls officially hit their birth weight! For those of you who don't know, babies lose about 10% of their birth weight in the first few days following birth and are expected to gain it back by 2 weeks of age. So, my girls are a little bit behind but the doctor was pleased. We don't have to go back for 2 weeks! WAHOO!

Addison is 7 lbs 8 oz (birth weight plus an ounce). Olivia is 6 lbs 10 oz (birth weight exactly).
