So, here are some new pics.
Mallory sitting in her Bumbo chair working on some head control.
Samantha looking like a little peanut in her Bumbo. Raegan got ahold of the babies and the camera while the housecleaner was here this week. We were all hanging out in the toy room and apparently Mallory wanted to play with naked Barbies?

So they had their vaccines yesterday and it's normal to have a temperature. Well when they woke up to eat at 3am they were both hot. So we take their temps and Mallory's is 102.9. Ouch! Samantha's was 100.4. So I called the on-call nurse at the pediatrician's office. Give her all the information. Let her know they just had their vaccines. She tells us to take them to the ER. Anything over 100.4 they would recommend go to the ER. Not the local ER either. Cook's Children's in Fort Worth.
So we head out there after taking Raegan to my mom's house. They check us right in and the doctor basically came in and said they should never have sent us to the ER with those temps. They say anything over 104 goes to the ER.
$200, 3 hours, and 2 sleepy babies later, we are not happy campers. I have a call into the doctor's office to see what the hell the problem was and why they would recommend an ER visit for those temps. Mallory's I can see but Samantha, no. I'll let you know what they say.

Samantha Kay (The Peanut) weighed in at 8 lb 10 oz. (7th %tile). She was 21.5 in long (19th %tile). She is just a tiny, little thing but very healthy. Samantha has really good head control for her little self. Here she is showing off and thinking about smiling for the camera.
Mallory Rose (The Chunk) weighed in at 10 lb 12 oz. (46th %tile). She was 22.5 in. long (51st %tile). She is looking fabulous and the doctor says it's like she wasn't even early. See the smirk I finally caught on camera? Mallory is smiling more these days (another indication that she is beginning to focus better). Mallory has also started to coo!
And here are the best friends. When the girls lay together (rare since they don't sleep together), Samantha is very calm near Mallory. She just lays there and watches Mallory scream wondering what in the hell she is thinking. However, Samantha is normally my screamer so it's rather odd to see her so calm near her sister. They are both wearing 0-3 month clothes now, although Samantha could still get away with newborns. And both girls are in a size 1 diaper. I still have not purchased any diapers yet. It's been fabulous. Between that and the milk machine I am, we really have saved quite a bit of money. Thanks to everyone who contributed diapers and wipes! My checkbook thanks you!
