1 Month Old!
My oh my, how time flies when you're hanging out with babies! With feeding every 3 hours, we aren't getting a whole lot done (not that we're supposed to), and the sun is going down again before we're even sure what day of the week it is. It's hard to believe it, but today the girls are officially 1 month old! Kirsten's mom went home about a week and a half ago after being with us 2 weeks, and we were on our own with the girls for a night. We did pretty well, but still weren't brave enough to trust the baby monitor. We tried it, got everything set up, went to bed, and within half an hour, old dad caved and was in the babies' room. Ah well, someday we'll use the monitor. Thankfully, my mom came the next day so we weren't on our own for long. Having our moms here has made the transition to parenthood far more manageable, and I'm not sure what we'd do without them.
Katherine and Annabelle are both eating really well these days, and we can see them filling out the little folds of skin in their arms and legs. We're not totally sure what their weights are these days, but our estimates (using a bathroom scale) are that they're both pushing 8 lbs. Both girls are beginning to show their own fun little personalities, and we have them awake a little more during the day now for playtime and exploring this big new world. When they're hungry, they sometimes get confused by noses and latch on. Oh, and Lucy thoroughly enjoys the Boppy pillow too.
