You guys have to check out this article of 5 little babies born here in Dallas. There's also a link to the mom's blog. It's really cool to see what our babies look like right now, but praying all of ours "bake" in there for a LOT longer!

HOLY SMOKES!!! So tiny!!! I am so glad that, thus far, no one has had huge issues or an early delivery on our board. I showed this picture to my DS and he was all: "Baby Sister, STAY INSIDE!!!!"

Oh, I know! I showed the pictures to my girls to show them what their baby brother looks like right now. My 7 year old said she doesn't want him to come early anymore. No doubt!

Crazy!   Ours might even be a bit bigger on average since they are alone in there!  And yes I am very grateful that none of us have had preemies so far!  On my Nov 2010 board our first baby was born in August right around this time!!  She is doing great now but it was a rough start for her and her poor parents!

Awww... they are so sweet. Their eyes haven't even opened yet. I hope that they continue to develop well, and do not suffer from long-term health issues.
