      Congrats, you guys are embarking on one of the most joyous and awesome responsibilities in your life, enjoy the ride. My youngest began with the same problem and came along just fine. May the good Lord bless your family.

        We haven't gave them any milk, he has been on several different formulas. Right now he's on Emfamil AR.

        We had his 1st day of physical therapy and they discovered he is not sucking on his bottle he's chewing at it. They've given us some things to try and help him out. They also think he could have a condition called tongue tie which could be causing the problem. Hopefully things gets better with him now we know the problem.

        Have you tied the Enfamil Gentlease? This is what we had to use with both our boys.

        Tongue-tie you can check visually. Try to slip a Q-tip beneath the end of his tongue. A muscle-band will block the Q-tip from slipping under the tip. That muscle-band isn't suppose to extend to the tongue-tip. (Years later, it's simple surgery to correct tongue-tie as it will hamper speech clarity.)

        Praying for everything to get solved and for you and your little one to find perfection. And sorry for the awful turmoil and discomfort the family suffers ... get that = you've got a family now.

          Kev, I don't know where you are in the process but assuming very early, keep the social media down to positives and limit the posting of pictures. Found those things out from experience.

              Kev, best to you, your wife and the twins you have been blessed with. Funny how things will change over time, the little guy may grow up to be a Gator lineman.

                Kev, as a father of a 2 month old, being a new dad is awesome.

                Babies are so magical.

                For example, my little boy turns my disposable income into disposable diapers

                  Very sad legislatures are creating disposable infants ... and rejoice about it.

                  I haven't really been active to much lately I've had my hands full but I thought I'd give an update on how things are going with fostering.

                  The boys are now almost 8 months old and for the most part healthy. We have a few things to worry about with one but it's nothing the physical therapist don't think we cant correct with therapy. He has some kind of issue with his muscles being tight. The Dr said it's common in twins but that his condition is a little worse than normal but thinks it can be corrected.

                  Things have gone our way so far in this adoption process. The mom has not been keeping up with her case plan and the dad has been in jail the whole time so it's looking very favorable for us.

                  I'll include a few pics but do to privacy laws I have to protect their identity for now. Once we are able to adopt we can post without any blockers.

                  If yall don't mind praying for them and my family we would greatly appreciate it. 20190806_025454.jpg 20190806_025603.jpg
                  Go Gators from my family to yours :chomp:

                          That's wonderful. Congratulations. But may I respectfully suggest, no matter how much you might be tempted, that you not name either one of them "Rex"?

                            Congrats man. A few years ago the wife and I fostered two young boys, ages 2 and 3. It was a different situation, it wasn’t leading towards adoption and we only had them for 6 months or so, but still a very rewarding process. Congratulations again, and love the outfits!

                              Glad to hear the process is progressing nicely. Soak up every moment of this that you can. The days may be long, but the years are fast. Next week Mrs G and I take our twins to their respective colleges. I have no idea where 18 years went.

                                My oldest son was only a few hours old when the doctor said he had a defect in his foot that I couldn't even see but, was like a punch in the gut and worried the hell out of me.
                                Without any treatment, he went on to quarterback his highschool football team and was a hell of a baseball player.
                                What ever is going on, he'll grow out of it, I'm sure.
