6(ish) week update!

A little Austin/Addie Update...

Austin seems to be growing by the pound each day. He definitely isn't one to miss a meal!! He is starting to smile (and not just a gas smile). Austin is learning to focus on our faces a little more. He's definitely getting strong and can hold his head up fairly well on his own. His current favorite pastime besides eating is chilling in his swing. At night, he's still getting up every 3 hours or so to eat (like I said, not missing a meal!)

Addison is also starting to smile a lot more. Hers may still be due to gas. :) Addie can focus on our faces and seems content to just stare. She is by far the more intense of the two. John and I like to joke that if she keeps furrowing her brow while making her "intense Addie face," she'll need Botox by the time she's 3! At night, she's starting to sleep in longer and longer stretches. Her longest is 5 hours! On that note, John and I each take a twin for the night. He usually takes Addie so I'm definitely getting the short end of the stick on the sleep deal!

All in all, I feel like we're starting to get the hang of things. I won't dare say that we're developing a routine because I know everything will just change tomorrow. It's a lot of fun watching our twins grow and watching them develop new little things.

Here are some random pics...

Sleep Deprivation is Funny...

As parents of new babies, we are getting very little sleep...very little. The other day, John and I were getting ready to head out with the twins. I picked out super cute outfits for both - outfits declaring that our children are Mr. Adorable and Miss Wonderful! I walked out to the living room and noticed "Mr. Adorable" sitting in HER carseat. Apparently Daddy dressed her with his eyes closed.
Here's the outfit on the right baby....

On a totally different note, this pic was too cute not to share. Addison refuses to take a pacifier or suck on her thumb. But apparently she has no issues chowing on Austin's arm! Luckily, it doesn't seem to bother him a bit!


1 Month Old!

The twins had their 1 month appointment today. Austin is now 8 lbs, 7 oz and 20.8 inches long. Addie is 7 lbs, 6 oz and 20 inches long. Dr. G. said they are doing a great job putting on weight and getting big and strong! He said in the next month, they will start following us more with their eyes and start smiling a lot more. I can't wait to see how they grow and develop over the next month!
