Minky and Dinky - a photographic update

I have been asked for more and more pictures of the new babies. They are doing well, still not great sleepers and both tend to be cluster feeders overnight. . Minky is up to 6lb 15 at his last weight in and Dinky is at 7lb 1. Mum and dad are both quite tired but have had a great help with Fifi being off school as she is happy to sit with them during the day and they are quite happy to fall asleep lying on top of her.

So here are some pictures that I have. Will come back and fill in the missing dates when I go and raid my daughter's/SIL's photos that they have  taken. A lot of these have been taken by Bob who is trying most days to get me pictures. But whenever we are in I take some myself. Also some were taken by Granny Nan.

I got to bath Minky when I was in today, first time I have bathed either of them. Bob was going to take a photograph of this but took a video instead but it was too dark for it to come out.


So here we have one a day with what I have.

an update-The health visitor was into them on Friday 3rd Jan and Minky now weights 8lb 8 a massive increase from his birth weight of 5lb 9oz, thats a 3lb gain in six weeks, not bad for a breast fed baby and for the first time he is heavier than his sister. She weighs in at 7lb 15 ( from her 6lb 3). Not sure where he has put it because he still looks smaller than her, and he still has his new born look, where as she has lost it. 

Have also added more to a google + album that I will keep updating as well.
