I would say they would maybe be about 2 lbs, could be a little more or less. It depends on if they are on the larger or smaller end of the range. If you haven't taken them to the vet for a check up yet, you should. They can just take a look at their overall health and let you know when they want to start vaccines and when they can be fixed. Sometimes it depends on the facility or the state. When I was in Washington state they fixed the kittens at the shelters as soon as they reached 2 lbs. Here in ND they usually wait until 5-6 months old, usually after they get their adult teeth. Vaccines should start soon if not now!

I got my kitten a little while ago, but I think that everything people have been saying is about right.

YOUR VET VISIT IM SURE IS PASSED, AND THEY PROBABLY TOLD YOU THAT TO TELL THE AGE OF A KITTEN IS THEY ARE APPROXIMATELY 1 POUND A MONTH TILL ABOUT 6 MONTHS OF AGE-SO BASICALLY 1lb=1mnth,2lb=2mnth,AND SO ON. AFTER 5MNTHS THEIR BREED,SEX,DIET, AND WETHER THEY ARE ALTERED OR NOT PLAY A HUGE ROLE IN THEIR SIZE AND THEN A VET WOULD EXAMINE THEIR TEETH TO ESTIMATE THEIR AGE. CONGRATS ON YOUR 2 NEW BABIES!
