Millie and Ruby are finally gaining some weight. I was starting to worry, but they just needed some time and today Millie weighed 2 lbs 4 oz and Ruby weighed 2 lbs 2 oz! Millie is up to 20 mls of milk every 3 hours (that's 4 teaspoons) and Ruby is up to 19 mls of milk per feed. Today Scott and I got to give them a bath (which means I bathed them and Scott watched - he was too scared the wuss!) Scott got some great pictures, which I will share. They did not like getting their bodies washed, but both liked getting their hair washed. I got to really look at them closely this way, and they do look very alike. Until I get them side by side it's hard to make a true assessment. Millie seems a lot bigger, although there's only a 2 oz difference. She also has a birth mark on her belly that Ruby doesn't have.
Happy New Year's! Love, The Doolots
