4 months old

It has been the longest and the shortest four months we have probably ever experienced. It feels like forever since CJ and Keagan were born and we started this blog. Yet, it is hard to believe that it has been four months already...weird :)

  • CJ and Keagan finally surpassed their due date of June 30th! We had a home health nurse visiting that day so that we could have a weight check...they never would have gotten this big in the womb but it is fun to know that the potential was there.
    • Keagan: 7 lb 2 oz and 19 1/2 in.
    • CJ: 9 lb 9 oz and 20 1/2 in. 
      • Can you imagine Kendra carrying over 16 1/2 lbs of babies?!?  
  • The last we blogged, the kids had just recently gotten off of their oxygen and monitors and we are happy to say that they are officially gone for good! 
  • All doctors appointments have gone well and we are happily getting used to having pretty "normal" babies where our main concerns are about poop and spit up :) 
  • Keagan did have to have laser surgery on her right eye last week because her ROP (retinopathy of prematurity) had progressed. It was done right in the office and the doctor said it went well. We'll know more next week but it seems that she is going to be just fine. 
CJ is showing off his muscles while Keagan cheers him on! 

These blanket dolls were the first things that were in the incubator with the kids. When CJ and Keagan were first born, the dolls were bigger than they were! 

Totally obnoxious but fun-we had to put on the tutu and headband since they have been fan favorites! 
At our 4-month doctor's appt. last week, Keagan weighed 8 lb. 4 oz-she is really finally getting some chub on her little cheeks.

Still the happy, carefree guy that he has pretty much been since birth-he is pretty easy to please...we just don't let him get too hungry! He weighed 10 lb 14 oz last week :) The kid seriously likes to eat...just take a look at his belly below! 

We had professional pictures taken last week and the whole gallery is up online (they are pretty amazing pictures!).
