15 Weeks Old - 10 pound babies

Hanging out in the pack-n-play
Tayden relaxing in his Nap Nanny
The twins have hit the 10 pound mark!!!  On Thursday Brooklyn weighed 10 lbs. 12 oz. and Tayden weighed 10 lbs. 2 oz.  This is great considering that they both lost some weight when they were sick.  Both babies are back to their old healthy selves and Tayden has developed a love for eating.  They have started sleeping through most of the night YEAH!!!  We usually feed them between 10 and midnight and they will sleep until 5 or 6 a.m.  During the afternoon hours they are very awake and are starting to be more interactive which is so much fun.  I went back to work on Friday - which was very hard, but very nice at the same time.  It was great to see all of the kids and all of my coworkers.  I had missed talked to them every day and I was able to get caught up on everything that has been going on.  My mom texted me throughout the day to keep me informed on all that was going on, so I felt very connected.  I start two weeks of training on Monday and then I will be off for another seven weeks before the school year starts.  My sweet Aunt Sara is flying in tomorrow evening from Houston to help my mom with the twins next week.  We are so blessed that she is coming and so excited for her to see how big the babies have gotten.  She came to the hospital the day after they were born, so they have definitely changed a lot.  We got out tonight and went to Dairy Queen - yeehaw!  When we got home we realized that the SueSue fairy had been to our house and brought Tayden his very own Nap Nanny!!!  We put him in it and he has been sacked out ever since.  I will never be able to thank my mom enough for all that she has done for us.  I pray that I can be the kind of mother that she has been to us - encouraging, caring, loving, and supportive.  Becoming a mom has shown me a whole new kind of love that she always told me I would understand one day.  I love you mom!
