Day to Day Pics

Most of the day I don't have my hands free. Literally. Sometimes I'll have one hand free. If I do have a free second, it is to shower, comb my hair, put on deodorant and actually get dressed. I typically don't call people and I sometimes cannot answer the door BUT I get emails from Darren asking what the babies are doing, so I started taking pictures of them with my iPhone. The quality is not great but it works because the camera can be operated with one hand and I can email the photo directly to the Dad.

Here are a LOT of shots from the first month of their life:

Lily's first outing in the car seat. She looks so serious.

She was upset at these pants I put on her. They ride up like an old lady

Yeah! Henry is home! And showing off his adorable dimple.

This is how these guys typically sleep. Right next to each other. Henry on the left, Lily on the right

This is their first photoshoot with Aunt Lesli and Aunt Elizabeth. More of those photos to come.

Henry showing off his stripes. I was hoping the horizontal stripes with fatten up his little string bean body.

Mommy is VERY happy if this is how the babies are acting. Both mellow and down for a bit so she can eat/shower/dress herself.

Henry is showing off his cool outfit that cousin Issac lent him.

This was a day that both of this kiddos were very naughty. And as a result - all 3 of us cried for the majority of the day. Eventually they fell asleep and before I collapsed next to them, I took this picture. Hard to believe they could cause that much trouble. :)

Once in a while, I'll get a smile :) And a little laugh. It is starting to happen more.

This is what it looks like when you take a picture of a baby sleeping on your chest. Hard angle but soooo fabulous.

Sometimes it is hard to be patient. Some of us handle it better than others. Not naming names.

One month checkup! They had to get all naked for their weigh in.

Sometimes we spit up on Daddy (Henry)

When Henry has furrowed brows like that - it is usually a clear indication that Mommy took too long with his bottle.

This is a misleading picture of Lillian. While she is growing an impressive pot belly, this picture makes her look like the most adorable chunky baby ever. But she still pretty darn small. Starting to fill out though. And that SMILE! What a cute little Buddha.

Not to be outdone - Henry gave me a little smile right as he was falling asleep. He is so full.

More to come next month.

Your babies are RIDICULOUS! I love them. I am so tired with my little guy, and my mother in law and husband are almost always home with me. My mother in law keeps saying, "how do people with twins do this?" You're both amazing.

Just stumbled onto your blog. Your babies are lovely! I have six year old twin boys and your post whisked me back to memories of when they were newborns, or what I COULD remember! Twins are tiring! After their 1st birthday things get so much easier! Hang in there tired Mommy and Daddy!
