Life here has been a little crazy but we are thoroughly enjoying having the girls home and finding a new normal. So far they are both very good babies so we are thankful for that. We are also thankful to have had my mom here for the last week. It was so nice to have some help for a few days and we all loved having Grandma around!

I had the girls in for a one week check up on Friday and they looked great. They had both gained quite a bit and were up to KR 5lbs 5oz, and KK 6lbs 2oz. KK is 19 1/2 in and KR is up to 18 in so she has grown a full inch since birth. They will not have to go back for another month now because they checked out so good. They are still both eating very well and sleep most of the time during the day. When they are awake, they are much more alert than they were before.

The boys are still really enjoying the girls. Last night the middle mas heard them crying when we did not so he came and told me, "Your babies are sad." They are all good about watching out for the girls. Even the little man is always bringing me their nuks and anything we drop of theirs.

We are planning on a quiet Christmas here at home with Todd's parents as we did not want to travel yet and everyone else had plans. It should be fun though. Then we will get together with Todd's family for a few days and then I think my family will all be coming out here for a few days. We are really looking forward to the time with our familes, that is always fun. We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

The middle man and little man playing together. I love to see that!

I wanted a pic of the boys Sunday morning in their Christmas clothes and this is what I got. They are such hams!

I got his sling as a gift and it is so great!

He helped dress KK

The middle man helped dress KR, they both did really well

This is just one of the many things I have found him doing when I am busy and not watching him

Thanks for the update & pictures. They were so fun to see. It is amazing what kids can get into when your busy. It looks & sounds like the boys will be a lot of help with the girls.
