Stats version 3.0





Bottles per day:
3 each, total of 6

Cost of formula per month: $150
Diapers per week: 84
Size of diapers: Size 2, almost size 3
Each month the babies will eat: 18 eggs, 20 bananas, 10 avocados, 10 apples, 10 pears, 10 mangoes, 3lbs blueberries, 3lbs cherries, 1lb peaches, 10 lbs veggies (squash, sweet potato, carrots, peas, beans, spinach, etc) 1 box Cream of Rice Cereal, 1 Quart Yogurt, 1lb cheese, 1lb meat (ham/turkey/roast beef), 2 cans of Puffs. Not to mention whatever we're eating that they eat. 
Favorite Restaurant: Little India. We have been there with both sets of grandparents and on our own, and they love it! The babies love to try new things. 
Favorite food: Maisie: right now she loves Puffs and eggs. And of course bananas. James: loves mango especially, but also likes beets and any fruit. Oh, and orange sweet potatoes. And zucchini squash. So, in a nutshell: he loves food!
Bedtime: The babies sleep from 8pm to 8am. They might be off a half hour or so but it's pretty consistent. They sleep through the night and have been doing so since they each came home from the hospital. They take 1-2 hour naps a day. 
Amount owed to hospitals from bed rest / birth: $0 (I paid off our copays and deductibles a few months ago). 
What about James's birthday neurosurgery? Well, darn. $1200 and counting owed. Could be more. 
Number of followup appointments with specialists post NICU? Only 1, neurosurgery for James in February. Otherwise we only see PT and Speech therapy. 
Size of clothing the babies wear: 3, 6, 9 months. We have a ton of clothes.


OTHER RANDOM QUESTIONS WE ARE ASKED...
Do the babies share a room? Yes.
Do the babies share a crib? No. Maisie is very wild and she would crush James. 
Number of cousins: 1, baby Giblet who lives in Seattle. 
Number of Aunts & Uncles: 7. Jimmy has three sisters and one brother, all younger. His oldest sister is married. I have one younger sister who is married. 
I know there's a GGP. Is there a GGM? GGM passed away a few years ago and we miss her dearly. GGP is from Jimmy's side of the family. All of my grandparents have passed away. We are so thankful to have GGP in our lives for the little dragons!
Are the babies identical? They look so much alike! They are fraternal twins. Boys and girls cannot ever be identical. They may look alike because they are siblings. 
Do twins run in your family? Yes, my grandfather had twins in his family.

How much do the babies weigh? Not sure, we haven't had a doctor's appointment since last month and won't have one until late September. If I had to guess I would say 15 and 16 pounds.
