Boys Last Synagis Shots and Busy at Work

The boys had their last Synagis shot of the RSV shot yesterday. Leo took them as I had to get ready for a meeting with Internal Audit at work. Very frustrating that they ended up rescheduling for Wednesday. Anyway, as part of the Synagis shot process they got weighed, so their latest weights are:

Tommy - 20 lbs 7 oz (9.27 kg)
Liam - 17 lbs 4 oz (7.82 kg)

I need to take some video of Liam rolling now that he's doing it more faithfully. He's not crawling yet, but he's managing to get around a bit more by rolling and wiggling. Tommy's been cutting the top two teeth lately, which has made him miserable. I've been giving him Motrin before he goes to bed at night to keep the pain from waking him up in the middle of the night. I don't give pain meds for all teething, but I've found that the top two and molars are the worst that wake them in the middle of the night with pain.

We also took the boys out to dinner on Saturday and it went great. We went to the new Cheesecake Factory that opened near us and they were fabulous to take twin babies too! On top of enjoying our beloved avocado egg rolls, they brought the boys their own plates of bread and sliced bananas when the waiter came with the bread for our table. They called it their "baby plates". You usually always give babies the bread from the bread plate anyway, but this way they had their own and they loved having bananas too. They got tired at the end, but they were stuffed with food and just wanted to go to sleep. I teased Tommy when I changed their diapers after supper as Tommy's jean button had come undone. I guess he needed to make room for all that food!

Work is getting really busy and that's going to keep me very occupied for the next few months. I'm hoping to make some good headway on getting my to-do lists shorter but I think the more I do, the more I'll end up adding. This morning I have to give a presentation on some UNIX system tips. I'm all ready and my handouts are copied. Now I just need to get in early and look at emails before I'm stuck in this meeting for 2 hours this morning. My presentation is 15 minutes, but I need to be supportive of the other presentations in the forum, so I'll stay for the whole two hours. I should make sure I have a fresh cup of coffee before I go in there!

I made my babies' 9-month appts for next week and can't wait to see what they'll weigh too!

your boys are so good! And I do love how you put the kg for me (well, I delude myself thinking that's just for me LOL).

Good luck with your presentation! And with staying awake - I always find after I'm done I couldn't care less about the others (bad!).

I was surprised to see what a difference there is in their weights at this point. Babies really are variable, aren't they.

I hope things went smoothly this morning. I'm headed back to work next week, and wondering how I'm going to get everything done.
