Two Week Milestones

Let's see, I can now touch my toes, sleep on my back, eat whatever I want . . . oh wait, you probably want to know about the babies.

The babies have been alive for two weeks now. No major issues to report. Finn has reached his birth weight. He now weighs 6 lbs 5 oz (his birth weight was 6 lbs 4 oz). Mirabelle is almost there, she now weighs 6 lbs 9 oz (her birth weight was 6 lbs 13 oz).

Finn is a poop machine and seems to hold an invisible reserve of pee just for diaper changes. Mirabelle is struggling to find her inner 'poop-ness' (yes, my life has been reduced to nothing more than conversations about infant bowel movements).

Both have really good neck strength and like to hold their heads up and survey their new environment. Finn had some tummy time earlier this week and rolled from his tummy to his back. I'm told this is a milestone (however, the bed was soft, I was leaning on it, it's possible gravity took over).

Yes, 2 weeks would be very early for the milestone of rolling from tummy to back, but hey, it's also possible that he's just that brilliant. Great to hear you're all doing so well!
