One Month Old (May 13, 2011)

This is a little late since the babies are now 7 weeks old but I want to remember what they were doing at this time so here is a late update.


You weight 7 pounds 8 ounces you and are 20.25 inches long. You are growing so big and fast-such a different baby than the one we brought home from the hospital. You are in the first percentile for weight and in the fifth for length. You are a great sleeper, we joke that there are days we don't ever see your eyes. Your hair has a lot of red in it...I am anxious to see if it stays or if you will be more blond or brown. Your eyes are still blue-very dark. You are wearing newborn clothes and diapers but filling them out more and more everyday. You are such a sweet baby. You love to lay on mommy or daddy's chest. You have started to be a little fussy at night from around 9 to midnight. You are eating 75mL every 3 hours, you are a very slow eater-daddy just says that you are savoring your food. Daddy calls you wolverine since you fingernails grow extremely fast and are sharp.


You weigh 6 pounds 1 ounce and are 20 inches long. Your checks are filling out but the rest of you still has little meat. You feel so different to hold than your bother, you are so dainty. You are in the first percentile for weight (.08% to be exact) and seventh for length. You are wearing newborn clothes and preemie diapers-you are still swimming in most of your clothes and bloomers just fall off no matter how small, you are so skinny. You are our flailer and noise maker. You don't like silence and fill it often with one of your barn yard noises. You are awake alot more then your brother but sleep well too. You have the sweetest smile. You are eating right at 2 ounces (60 mL) every 3 hours and can put down a bottle in no time. You love to wear pretty hair bows with all of your outfits. Your hair has red in it as well and you have beautiful blue eyes for now.

You got to celebrate a lot this month with Daddy's birthday, Easter, Mommy's birthday and Mother's Day-but most importantly was coming home from the hospital Rigg's at 15 days and Jackson at 16. You had your first big outing to church on Mother's Day and were perfect-everyone wanted to see our little angels.

You both are perfect and we don't know what we ever did without you. We love you more than we ever knew we could and know that God has forever blessed our lives beyond our greatest dreams.

It is so hard to believe that you have been here a month already. In one moment it seems as you have always been here but then at the same time  I can't believe you are a month old. This has been the craziest but best month of our life.

We love you babies!

Here are a few more pictures of them that were too cute not to post.
