Auntie Deb long awaited cuddle time with Sandra!


Makaila got caught sleeping!


Sandra chilling out after her calisthenics!


Hannah catching up on some z's!



Samantha's first time in a swing!


Lately we have been getting a taste of what is about to come. The girls are now on two different feeding schedules. Which means someone always needs to be changed or fed. It is crazy! Makaila and Hannah have colds and I feel so bad for them. They feel just awful. Hannah has it the worst. She can't lay on her back without having desats. She has been really struggling with her bottles but I think she just cant breath very well. Makaila seems to have figured out the whole bottle idea. She is still trying 6 a day. Yesterday she finished 5 of them. Sandra tries one bottle a day. The nurses and doctors are surprised at how well she is doing with it. Yesterday she took 20 ccs of the 28 offered. Do not under estimate the peanut. The other day she literally crawled out of her diaper and made a mess. Last out of the isolette and first to crawl. ha ha Speaking of isolette, she is being weaned off the temperature controls and we hope to have her in a crib with Samantha this coming week. After one of Samanth'a bottles she was wide a wake so she had her first ride in a swing. She actually really liked it and finally feel asleep.

I love these pics. They are such "little people" and I am over-scrutinizing each picture to see personalities and likeness. They are ALL precious! The twins are so cute, and Samantha is a WATT baby :) She looks "all grown up" in her chair. Sandra is such a peanut! Love the pics of Deb-aka "the finger"
