4 months old!



I can't believe they are 4 months old today! They look so different from the day they were born and only being 4 lbs. Yesterday Jalen and Landon had their follow-up appointment with the NICU and everything went great! They are both where they need to be according to their adjusted age and are right on track. The adjusted age is the age that they would have been if they were born on their due date (June 30th). The therapists did show me some exercises to work with the boys to help them learn how to sit up on their own. The exercises are little baby crunches. Both boys tend to keep a straight back going from laying down to sitting up. These exercises will help them use their upper muscles better and learn to bend the back.

The nurses weighed them and WOW they are getting so BIG! Landon is now 14 lbs 8 oz, 24 inches long and Jalen is 14lbs 5 oz, 23 1/2 inches long. They are in the 75th percentile in their weights and length going from their adjusted age. We will see how much they have grown next Monday when they go in for their 4 month appointment and shots.

Oh my goodness! What sweet boys! I have a 3 month old, who was born almost exactly a month after your boys on June 8. :)
