One month old!



Today is (was?) my due date and on Sunday the girls will be one month old. Believe it? I don't!

We celebrated Easter at my mom's house. Lunch was amazing and it was nice to have a change of scenery and visit with family. We even got a multi-generational picture.

Paige came home from college and has spent most of her time so far here helping out around the house! She even helped me go to a support group for new mommies and bake some cookies to say thank you to the office that cared for me during my pregnancy.

Gotta keep it short because my babies are stirring and ready to eat again! Check out the newest pictures in our photo album :)

2 weeks old...

...where does the time go? I'm going to be one of those parents always looking back, unable to believe how old her babies are!! The girls are 18 days old today! This week at their doctor's appointment Madison weighed in at 6lbs 3oz and Audrey 6lbs 4oz! I guess all that forced, high calorie formula feeding worked! For now, we are totally off formula and the girls don't seem to miss the bottle at all!

In other news, Rusty is back to work this week. I think being away is harder than he thought it would be. It just makes me think about when I'll return to work. I look forward to it and dread it all at the same time. I love being home with my babies every day and could totally see myself staying home but I'll be back to work this July!!

This week we've had a lot of firsts! We gave the babies their first baths, went on our first outing (Crispers and Babies-R-Us), and started taking early evening walks around our block. As always, check out the photo album for more :)

They're here!!

As many of you know, we welcomed our girls into the world on Sunday, April 3rd. After a quick labor Audrey was born at 6:29pm weighing in at 4lbs 12oz. Madison was soon to follow at 6:39pm weighing in at 5lbs even! Audrey was well enough to join us in recovery but Madison had some initial breathing problems which landed her in NICU for several days. With that behind us, we are so glad to be home with our girls :)

As always, check out our photo album (right) for the pictures!!

Celebrating 36 weeks

We made it!! Now the babies are considered full term and will be ready for the outside world!! I celebrated with a pedicure (gotta have nice toes for delivery!!!!) and a trip to the pool. Ok, it was just over to my mom's but it was nice to sit in the sun and get some Vitamin D especially after the terrible weather we've had the past few days! Plus, the dog enjoyed getting out too! Here's to the wait!!
