She's over birth weight!

So when Stephen was born he weighed 9lbs 7oz; but he lost tons of weight - it took him about two months to get back to birth weight and we had to supplement him to get him there. So as you can imagine I was worried going to Abby's two week weight check. Well no need to be worried this go around! Abby is 9lbs 5oz's! This is great, she is doing so well nursing, and we couldn't be happier. She is sleeping well and is just a chill baby compared to Stephen - God knew what we needed!!

Stephen is adjusting very well, he likes to tell me when she's crying and then give her hugs and kisses. The hugs are a bit rough and sometimes come when she's nursing; but he's getting there. Thanks so much for all your continued prayers, we love you all!
