One month old!!

Where has this month gone?? I feel like we just brought our babies home from the hospital and here they are one month old. Time is just flying by. This past month has been the most wonderful month we've had!! Yes it has been tiring and time consuming but I wouldn't trade it for the world. Carson is still my easy going boy..... he just goes with the flow. He is starting to have a lot of awake time during the morning but still sleeps a lot in the afternoon and evening. He is such a sweet baby! He is already eating 4oz every 3 hours.... he's trying his hardest to catch up to his big sister's weight. Avery had found her voice!! She is a very spirited little girl and loves to be held and walked around with! She doesn't like to be still. She has been really fussy in the evening hours and wants us to keep her moving and bouncing till she finally gives out and falls asleep. She also has been much more awake and alert during the day and has the biggest, most beautiful eyes!! They are both growing so much. They have almost outgrown their "up to 7 pounds" clothes and are starting to fit into their newborn clothes. We are slowly making our way out of the house more. This past week I took the babies to Target by myself...... I was so proud of myself. I put them in the Moby wrap and did my shopping, they did great. I highly recommend the Moby wrap to anyone who wants to grocery shop with twins... they loved being all snuggly with each other up against me, and you have your hands free. Thanks Allison for letting me borrow it!! Here are some pictures from the past couple of weeks.
First time in the Moby wrap... at my friend Amber's baby shower!

One month picture (I've seen some of my friends do this on their blogs... take their picture every month next to the same stuffed animal so you can see how much they've grown month to month. So I'd like to introduce you all to "Bunny" this was one of the two stuffed animals Shane slept with when he was growing up, the other was a giant Panda bear named "Muffy"..... so funny)
Sweet boy
Avery wasn't very happy about getting her picture taken!


  1. I love Carson's little skinny legs and the picture of Avery crying is hilarious! Great idea of the pictures beside the stuff animal! It's so amazing how fast they grow! I'm so glad you're enjoying it so! It's going to get to be even more fun...just wait! They are always such a joy! Hugs!

  2. Oh how I remember the fussy evenings! Avery sounds a lot like Noelle at that point. The good news is, she hit 3 months and now she is the most smiley, happy, funny girl (for the most part). I'm so glad you guys are doing well. You look great and the kids are such cuties!

  3. Nothing like a girl to keep their family on their toes! hehe They are so sweet & adorable. Sweet babies & moments. Hang on tight to them. Before you know it, they'll be all over the place & they'll have done more than found their voice:)...thanks for sharing them!

  4. They are growing so much! They already look different from when we were there! You are super mom, putting them both in a sling and grocery shopping! Can't wait for out little guys to get to play together!
