As many of you know, our precious little girls have arrived. They are doing wonderful and are healthy as they can be. We took them to the doctor on Wed. and found out the Aurora is up to 7 lbs. and Abigail is up to 5 lbs. 12.6 oz. We are enjoying being parents so much that we can't even express it!! Of course, the lack of sleep leaves a little to be desired, but we hear that this too shall pass some day. We've been told that it's just training for when we will sit up nights worrying about them as teenagers. So much to look forward to!! :) The girls are both starting to hold their heads up and look around for longer periods of time. They have also both started smiling when they hear people's voices or think that something is amusing. It's not just the involuntary smiles anymore!! It is so adorable when their daddy gets home from work. He will say something and immediately both girls will start looking around to find him and smile when he comes into view. It warms my heart that they love their daddy so much already. They also really like it when their Mimi Cinda is here. They love to cuddle and snuggle with her. We are having the time of our lives. Antoher thing that they do is "talk" back and forth to one another. When we lay them in their bassinet together, one will starting cooing and grunting and then the other will answer. Sometimes, they will do this for 30 minutes or so. It's like they have their own language and they are discussing the goings on in the world with one another. It's amazing and fun to watch!! We have them on a three hour feeding rotation right now. It's crazy at feeding time around here. Who knew that having two babies to feed at one time could be so much work. Luckily, I haven't had to do too many feedings without someone to help. Usually, either Michael or my mom is here to help!! What an adventure parenthood is!!
