Charlie has been quite grumpy this week. He's been getting a bit of a reputation. A nurse told me he'd been crying a lot overnight when he needed his nappy changing. 'He's a demanding baby.' she says. I just figured something was up and it looks like I might be right (rather than judgemental nurse). He's been on fortifier with his milk to try to get his weight up quickly. Now they are thinking its giving him tummy ache. They gave him 2 feeds without today and he's been an angel baby.
Lex has had a grumpy week too. He's had his first cold and his nickname has been Mr Snuffleupagus. It has been quite cute for me though as the best thing to settle him has been cuddles with us.
Beth has not had a grumpy week. She sleeps and then looks around serenely, occasionally she squeeks. Today the Sister warned me that we should start planning for what we would do if Beth was sent home before the boys. 'It won't happen this week.' she said.
She's 3 pound 10 today (up 2 ounces) so is doing very well.
Today was very exciting as, as well as Aunty Elaine visiting, Beth and Lex were moved into a shared cot. They didnt exactly cuddle but there wasn't tears and violence either.
