I’ve been trying to post for a week now…The boys are 41 weeks today. To think that technically they’re just now past their due date is crazy! Especially since today they are already a month old!
Premie babies get an adjusted age. Meaning, even though they will be a month old, developmentally they are viewed as just born. For example, their coordination while eating is still a work in progress and that is completely normal.
They also had their newborn pictures done last Tuesday. Brittany with BFaithPhotographyDFW.com did my maternity pictures and was here to do the boys as well. Love her. If you are in the DFW area I highly recommend checking her out. Very creative and her pricing can’t be beat.
Things in the Allen household are intense. My help left. My mum was here the first week we were home and my aunt came in the following week, now I’m on my own while The Hubs is at work. Eeek!
The boys are definitely on different schedules. They eat around the same time but Wes refuses to latch on anymore because the bottle is easier (very disappointing) so he’s on formula and whatever I can pump. Corbin is 90% breastfed. It wasn’t the way I envisioned it but it’s the best we can do. Corbin likes to make his most wakeful, fussy period between 12-2 am. Yikes.
We got the official weigh in numbers at their ped appointment on Tuesday. Weston is at 7.12 and Corbin is at 5.12! These are great weigh in numbers. Although she wants to see Corbin gaining a bit more.
This past month has been some of the most trying times and incredibly emotional but I’m so glad we are where we are now and excited for the future!!

Hang in there, mama! Those pictures your photographer took turned out so great!
