1st Week Home

I'm sorry it's been so long. I'll make up for it with lots of pictures.

We got home last Sunday evening and Amy had come and decorated our yard and porch with balloons, streamers, and posters. It was so sweet of her! Thanks Amy!



Dustin took Monday off and this is what he did most of the day - just hung out with his boys.



The boys turned one month old on Saturday. Here are a few pictures right after their bath.












We heard from the nurses that at night, they would check on the boys and one of them would be sucking on the other's ear or cheek or back of the head. I found them sucking on each other's fingers. By the time I got the camera, Landon had taken his fingers out of Eli's mouth, but...you get the idea.

So cozy

We took the boys out for their first walk yesterday. It was beautiful weather and I think they really liked it.



Landon slept the whole time, but Eli was wide awake just looking around.

Our first week home was great! I have two laid back, happy babies (for the time being at least). Amy Holifield came to help me on Tuesday and Neva came the rest of the week. It was so nice to have them here to help take care of us!

The boys are pretty much on the same schedule. They eat at 12, 4, and 8 around the clock and they sleep fairly well at night. They are very well adjusted babies.....to everything but the dark and quiet. They have never been in a dark or quiet environment and it took us a couple nights to figure out that they needed light and noise to sleep. They love to cuddle and be held, but they are also very happy to just lay together and look around. So far, this whole twin thing isn't at all what I expected. I haven't had to go one day without a shower and I'm even able to cook and keep the house pretty clean. It also helps to have an extremely helpful husband! I have the very best job in the world and I'm so thankful to be able to stay home with these precious boys.

That is pretty much all that is going on around here. I'm sorry this is so choppy...I've had to come back to it several times. We'll try to post more often. I think I'll put Dustin in charge of this...he's much better at it :)

Amy, I'm soooo thankful that things are going so well. Sounds like it just couldn't be any better really! God is so good, and I'm thankful he's hearing our prayers. Sounds like you are doing an amazing job, too - hope I can do half as well one day! What a wonderful blessing to stay at home with your boys.
Love you!!
