2 months old already?!

PB&J - because she's sweet and he's chunky ;) Onesies by klzart!

I can't believe my babies are 2 months old today. 2 MONTHS! Time is going by way, way too fast.

They had their 2 month checkup and shots yesterday. Here's their stats:

RILEY:
10lbs 3oz - 36.4%
22in - 42%

DYLAN:
11lbs - 39%
21.5in - 11%

Their height and weight are finally catching up with other babies their age! When they were first born they were barely to the 5% percentile in weight and not much more in height. Now Dylan has nearly doubled his birthweight (12 more lbs will do it). Both have grown a full 2 inches since they were born!

They got their 2 month vaccines yesterday too. Dylan took it like a little champ, he cried for about a minute, maybe less, and then calmed down quickly. Riley needed some snuggles and kisses but then fell asleep not long after her shots. unfortunately both got fevers last night, but not too bad. I stayed up with them just to make sure their fevers didn't go anywhere. Today they have been tired and a little cranky, Riley is still about a degree higher than normal, but neither has needed any tyle.nol, just sleep. Their Dr said they look absolutely perfect in every way :) Dylan does have a touch of reflux though. So far I haven't medicated it (although I do have it on hand), I just have him sleeping a bit elevated all of the time. He DOES get cranky though.

MILESTONES:
Both babies are smiling more and more. Dylan does this adorable cooing that sounds like a little monkey "ooh! ooh! ooh!" and Riley smiles with her mouth open a lot like she finds something really funny :) she also clicks her tongue on the roof of her mouth when she does it, a really cute little quirk :) They have also bee reaching out for things more and more. Especially our dog Molly. They can't get enough of her! Dylan tends to reach out more with his right hand and Riley with her left. I'm a lefty, so I wouldn't be too surprised if she was too. Riley can roll from her side to her back now which is really fun to watch. She flails her arms like she's going to take flight and then just rolls. Last night I had them both lying on the couch next to me and Riley rolled to her side and snuggled up to her brother - even put her arm around him! They both are beginning to reach for my face when I feed them now too!

They are also both really beginning to take in their surroundings. After the dr we took a long walk to Josh's office and they were both ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the trees and the sky. I try to take them for walks as much as I can weather permitting. Lately it's been cold and rainy, but when we wake up to sunshine we are out the door pretty quickly!

That's all I have for now! Hope you like the pics!

OOOH, the chunk is the best ever! Especially with twins/preemies because it represents so many good things! They are absolutely perfect.
