A milestone even if it's just a fluke

Our boy and girl did an amazing thing -- they rolled over during their tummy time. Their post-gestational age is just over 2 weeks, but since they were born prematurely (32 weeks), they are officially just over 2 months old. Rolling over is something we expect around 4 months, so it's likely a fluke. Needless to say, it was fun seeing them roll over for the first time.

The twins got their last vaccination (pneumococcal) prior to traveling. Both had mild fever, but it was gone the next day. It was our last visit to Dr Gupta's clinic, and so we decided to donate to NICU at Eden Hospital all the preemie clothes we brought to Delhi. We also gave him 8 packs of preemie (P)-size diapers, which we know will be put to good use -- we felt terrible seeing preemie babies (including our own) in the NICU wearing gigantic clothes and diapers. With the milk volume the twins now drink, the P size just could not handle the pee anymore.

Goodbye preemie diapers -- goodbye leaks! Hello newborn diapers!
