Two month update

Well, it's practically a 3-month update since the girls are 11 weeks old now (time flies when you're on the baby hamster wheel, doesn't it!?) The girls are doing great, are now 9-1/2lbs each (I can't believe they've more than doubled their birth weights!), smiling big toothless gummy smiles at us, and sleeping from 12a-6a every night (please please let this continue!) There were a couple of hard weeks emotionally after bringing them home, but now their premature birth and nicu stay has become a fuzzy memory and I'm finally truly enjoying my time with them without thinking about all that baggage. They are such joys and keep us laughing every day...

Thanks ladies. We're SO lucky on the sleep thing. Last night we put them down after they ate at 10:30pm and they slept till 6am! I'm telling myself that was just a fluke so that I don't get my hopes up for a repeat performance.

I'm jealous of their awesome sleeping! My little guys didn't STTN until almost 9 months!
They are adorable, I'm glad you are enjoying them so much- it only gets better!
