Ten Pounders

We took the boys to the doctor today, mainly for Gus to get checked out. He has developed a rather teeth-gnashing habit of wailing when he eats. We thought it might be acid reflux because it only happens when he's horizontal and eating. Anyhow, we have some medicine now for him to treat thrush, which sounds like something you plant in your yard but apparently is some kind of yeast that irritates the mouth.

The doctor wasn't concerned though, and the boys continue to grow at a good pace. Gus was 10 lbs, 2 oz. And since we had Owen in the room we plopped him on the scale too -- 10 lbs, 1 oz. for big O. Owen's weight is rather surprising frankly because he is such a little chunk, he has the bigger protruding belly, and he eats more than Gus. Still, we're happy with their growth.

Finally here's a picture of Owen some of you have seen, but I love it as it really sums up the kid's personality. Owen is awake nearly all the time -- eyes as wide as moons, very alert, and full of energy. His little motor rarely stops. We took this pic one night before a bath. It always makes me laugh.

Have a good wkend everyone.
