The babes are 9 weeks old now. They had their 2 month appointment last week and Owen and Lily are both in the 10 ish range. Owen was 10.9oz and Lil was 10.2oz.
I just had to share little man's cute outfit he wore this past Sunday. I've seen onesies similar that have iron on tie appliques on them. I decided to try to make one myself using one of Paul's old ties. I just cut the back, tied a knot and sewed the knot on a onesie. I feel so crafty.
Sorry about the not so clear picture. I grabbed the point and shoot and didn't realize there was a big huge fingerprint on the lens. I tried to clean it up a bit, but alas I'm not great with photoshop yet.
Lainie graduated from preschool on the 14th of this month. She recited Humpty Dumpty perfectly in front of her classmates and parents/family. It was one of the first outtings with the babes, but I had my mom, my sister Jen, Aunt Loni and Uncle Terry all there to help! Thanks guys.

Awww, mother's day. A day I reflect on how well I'm living up to the name. Some days I wonder if I'll lose it completely, but most I feel completely blessed to have these 5 children who make me a mother.
Then, of course, there is my mother. The perfect example of patience, love, and selflessness. I love you mom. Happy Mother's Day.

I took these this past Sunday. It was our first Sunday back to church and we fared well. I was a bit nervous about the whole nursing twins in public part, but it all worked out fine. The babies are 6.5 weeks here. Lily had a hard time keeping her eyes open outside. It's amazing how different they look from each other. Lily is so fair, with red hair, and blue eyes. Owen is dark like Lainie. After church we took a little walk around the block with my mom. I feel so lucky to have her here.
Paul got his first on the job injury about a week or so ago. He burned his hand while trying to rescue a little boy from a burning car....at least that's the story he tells people. It's actually a 2nd degree grease burn that he got while cooking bacon at the station. Ouch!
