Our sweet Babies (11 weeks)

Emily: She is an angel perfect baby, so sweet and patient its amazing! Never fussy, always has a sweet smile for you, even if she just puked up her medicine. She has changed my life in so many ways, I am so grateful for her. She reminds me daily that everything is in the Lord's hands and I just need to turn to Him and trust in His plan for me and my family. She loves when we talk to her, she grins and squeaks back. She has doubled her birth weight today, weighing in at 8lbs 5ounces, and growing to 21 and one half inches!! Although we think that is a big accomplishment the doctors were hoping for more. They are threatening a nightly tube feeding to get her weight up. I am hoping to avoid that.... we are waiting until this Thursday to see how the cardiologist feels about it.
Olivia: Just as sweet as her sister, with a little more spunk and a little less patience (only when she is hungry)! It has been so fun to watch her personality come out. She loves to be talked to and played with, she responds with little squeaks and lots of grins. She loves playing with toys. Her favorite though, is talking with her sisters. Iz loves to put toys in front of her to watch her smile. Olivia has doubled her birth weight as well, weighing in at 11lbs even today. She is now 24inches in length! She is in the 50th percentile for weight and the 95th for height. She is so good to tag along to all of Emily's appointments, for moral support! :)

These twins have been amazing, it has been so much fun to have them in our home. They are such good babies!! Life is, as expected, super busy but so worth every second. Both are already sleeping through the night, from 10pm-6am!! Yeah, I get to sleep. They are just so pleasant and just love being together. I highly recommend having twins to everyone!! :)

Listening to "I Have Been Blessed" while looking at Emily's and Olivia's pictures has me in tears. You have been blessed, and I get to enjoy the same blessings:) Thank you for all you do (including this blog)!!! Love, Linda
