The rest of yesterday's appointment went pretty good too. The nurse came in to ask a few questions before I met Dr. McIntee. Our conversation went a little like this.
Nurse: "What are the boys eating?"
Me: "Expressed breast milk."
Nurse: "Both of them?"
Me (perplexed): "Yes."
Nurse: " Well, how many ounces a day are you getting?"
Me: "About 60."
Nurse: "WOW!! You're a cow."
Okay, so I know she didn't mean anything by it except that she was impressed with my production, but come on. Not really the right thing to say to someone, regardless. Much less a woman who just gave birth to twins and is very sensitive about her weight. On a brighter note, Aidan weighed in at 7 pounds, 4 ounces yesterday and Brody was at 7 pounds, 11 ounces. Both were measuring 20 inches long.
Both boys just wanted to be held after we get home from the appointment. Its a good thing we can improvise somewhat.
Josh told me that Brody just needed a little "snuggle time". That he underwent a major life change today.
