11 Weeks Old: September 23, 2012

The Babies are 11 weeks old today. They were uber cute during their photo ops this week.

We are 100% biased but think they are adorable together. Everyone is doing really well and nights are most often going great.

Guess That Baby, Car seat Edition

Guess That Baby!

The kids went to their pediatric optometrist today. Their appointment was soon after a feed, so I was in the third row seat watching for reflux... and also taking photos. It was a perfect opportunity to take very neutral background pics that don't help with clues as to who is who.

Very interested to know your guesses! In no particular order.... Who are Rock, Paper & Scissors?


Happy Guessing!

10 Weeks Old!

On Sunday the 16th the babies turned 10 weeks old. Another big week at our house. We are loving having everyone together and are getting our routine down.

Not to jinx ourselves, but things are going really well so far. Big Big Thanks to the Nurses for getting the kids onto the same 4 hour schedule before they came home- that has been so helpful! Last night, everyone actually slept most of the night hours that they weren't feeding. Amazing!! We have become expect swaddle blanket wrappers but have now switched over to the velcro swaddlers as the kids are a little more active at night.

We are able to feed two at a time with the help of propping someone on their own Boppy pillow. But the last couple of days both Nonni & Grandma have been visiting so no need for efficient "advanced bottle feeding".

Everyone has been to see Dr. H their fantastic pediatrician. He has given the go ahead for visitors who are 110% healthy for now (no colds, sniffles...). During RSV & Flu seasons we will need to limit their contact (likely starting in November), so if you'd like to stop by to say hello let me know. The kids need to spend most of their non feeding time napping, but we can always use an extra hand.
Cant tell who is more tired - daddy or his girls

Edison Comes Home! September 14, 2012

Edison came home September 14th. It is great to be all together at home.

We are so grateful to all the wonderful Kaiser team members who helped our family get to this point.

Grandma and Grandpa Berrio were here the day Eddie came home. It gets exciting from here at our house. His first night home, Edison made sure we knew he was here. Not so much sleep for Mom and Dad, but that was to be expected. Good thing he is a sweet adorable boy!
