The girls are doing really well. Emmeline is eating like a trooper and both are sleeping well. Vivian had some tummy pain yesterday and last night but the Colicaid drops seems to have helped that a great deal today and she seems much better. Ben is very impressed with the girls "monster poos" as he calls them and is very adept at changing them now after realising that the nappy is much better positioned over the bum cheek to catch the before mentioned "monster poos"!!
We took the girls to the paediatrician on Tuesday to get Emmeline's legs checked as she seemed to have some pain when straightening them. Dr said it was normal for her age and to massage them each day at nappy change and sure enough he was they are getting better each day. Thanks Tammy for asking Gwen for the advice and Gwen was spot on :) The doctor weighed them both and was happy with their progress so we will take them back next Tuesday for another weigh in.
The nurses organised through the clinic have been a Godsend and has made the experience much less stressful. We are especially grateful today as Ben and I are both sick with Delhi belly but Dr Shivani had got us on some medication and we hope we will be feeling better tomorrow. We have spent most of the day in bed (when not in the bathroom).
We were discussing the pros and cons of being here and one of the cons was having to hand wash the girls clothes and blankets and then try to dry them with the small room heater. We very quickly decided that having a nurse each night so we can sleep far outweighs the hour of so spent on organising laundry!!
We continue to fall more in love with the girls each day and are finding it hard to stop starting at their perfect little faces. The little sounds they make and their funny little faces they pull are so sweet.
Here are some new pics xx
PS - thanks Doug and Bill for the hot Mama and Daddy comment and yes I am now swaddling like a pro!!
