Week 9 and 10

The past 2 weeks have just flown by and man are we ever busy, busy, busy.  The babies seem to sleep off each other now during the day so that makes things smoother.  So Milena seems to like to sleep until 10 am , while Nevaeh likes to be up between 8 am and 10 am , then Milena is up from 10 am to noon and like wise Nevaeh sleeps from 10 am to noon, and so on our day goes.
 Milena is breastfeeding the most, with  only 6 - 9 oz  in a 24 hour period for top ups and Nevaeh is getting more top ups and only coming to the breast 2-3 times a day. We are working on her getting on more so that we can have both girls down off the top ups and more on the breast milk.

We had a Dr check up this week ( our Dr is on Mat leave so her replacement was in ) , that was a really bad experience.  1st I was telling her about seen a lactation consultant, the Dr rolled her eyes and say, "Oh, one of those." Little does she know I am one of those!
Then she went on to, let's start our appointment with this one, "Heaven spelt backwards." referring  to Nevaeh, I almost fell off my chair. I was so shocked that I did not say thing, I was still so shocked at her unprofessional comments with the Lactation consultant remark I could not speak.
Then she went on to assume Rich, the girls father was their grandfather. What happened was, she was handing him some papers and commented, " OK, Grandpa you get to hold the papers."  Again, speechless and falling off my chair.
Needless to say I am not returning if the girls are healthy until April when our REAL Dr. returns back to work.
I wish I could turn back time and go back to that appointment and speak up and correct and maybe even educate her a little but I was caught so off guard. I am in my happy place and assume everyone gets me and my happy place, forgetting that some have no filters and will bring me out of that happy space.  
Today, I am happy and not giving it all that much thought other than to share this with you.

On to other news, the girls are grown like mad, Milena is 9 lbs 3 oz and Nevaeh is 8 lbs 3 oz.
Both are smiling when they see us, Nevaeh more than Milena.  Nevaeh is laughing out loud now when we amuse her or when she stares off in space and finds something there funny.
Here are a few pics from weeks 9 and 10.
Week 9 

Week 10 

Milena always looks like she is punching Nevaeh, rest assured this is a balled fist resting on her sisters chest. 

Although Nevaeh looks shocked, she is laughing  in delight. 

A little tummy time. 


  1. i am so sorry to hear about the horrible doctors appointment... shocked!! But the girls are growing so fast and are so cute just keep posting photos, and look forward to your dr returning!!!

  2. How could you have let the miserable Dr go free. so rude of the ignorant Dr!well done, the girls are looking really great, so cute!

  3. I am sure you will tell your regular doctor about your experience!! Awful!!!
    The girls are gorgeous and growing! Glad to hear they are doing well and I love all the twin outfits!

  4. I would love to see that doctor's face if she knew half the world was reading about her lack of professionalism and appalling comments on here. Such beautiful babies.

  5. Love the pictures of the girls! They are beautiful and getting so big. R and B take turns during the day. It makes for good one on one time but it can be tough to get things done. I hope you don't have to deal with the stupid doctor again! One would think she would be smart enough to keep her foot out of her mout but apparently not. I bet Rich loved the dr too:)

  6. The photos are lovely, with their smiling little faces. I hope you wrote a letter of complaint. I often sit back after rude comments have been made by so-called 'professionals' and let it eat me away (unlike yourself)...however now I put the pen to paper and write it out...usually without sending it,lol.
    Take care xxx
