Quick weight update

We took Gracie to see Dr. A today. While we were there, Dr. A weighed the babies. Daddy and I have been worried that they aren't eating enough. They are down to 4 - 5 bottles a day and only finish between 3 - 6 oz of milk. They aren't too interested in food unless it is on our plates and even then they only eat a few bites.

So, our bitty babies weigh:

Gracie - 16 lbs 3.5 oz (with her clothes on - likely, she is smaller)
Luke - 18 lbs 2 oz (with his clothes on!)

Dr. A says that babies at this age need to eat 16 - 24 oz of milk a day, so Gracie and Luke are doing okay. She told us not to worry about Gracie (she's only gained 3.5 oz since her 9 month check up and that doesn't really count because she had clothes on when we weighed her). Since she has been moving so much, she is burning the food she eats and whatever energy she has stored.

Oh! and Bad Mommy! I forgot to mention in my last post that Gracie has 6 teeth (1 fewer than Luke).
