Babies' first rice cereal from a spoon! (pictures soon) Russell didn't seem to get the point at all. Charlotte sort of did. Russell isn't too fond of his new formula either. With luck he'll get used to it shortly.

(Happy birthday, Jeff!)


Lots of good news from today's doctor's appointment. Charlotte weighs 11 pounds 12 ounces (5.35 kg) and is 24 inches tall (60.5 cm). Russell weighs 15 pounds 3 ounces (6.9 kg) and is 25 inches tall. We were expecting Russell to weigh more since he feels so much heavier than Charlie! Charlotte's reflux is improving with her new formula. Russell has officially grown enough to graduate from preemie formula to the regular stuff. And we are going to start both babies on a little rice cereal now!


Russell is off of his heart/apnea monitor now, too!
