Happy two months girls!!

Happy two months Kendall and Kylie!!

Here are their stats:

Kendall Grace

10 lbs. 10 oz., 47 percentile

23" length, 73 percentile

Kylie Mae

10 lbs. 3 oz., 36 percentile

22" length, 35 percentile

The ironic part is they were 7 oz. apart in weight at birth and still are 7 oz. two months later.

As you can tell from the picture I think they are not identical. They are a joy to raise and very laid back. They are not sleeping through yet but will go around a 5 hour stretch. Hopefully sleep will be soon to come.

Guenter and Maddie are doing great. Guenter is still the third parent LOL! We just registered him for Kindergarten and he is very excited!

Maddie has hit the whining stage, but still so much fun! Below is a picture of Maddie A.K.A. 'Hollywood'.

Everyone asks "Do you have help??" and I am thankful to my MIL and mom for all their help! Thanks Moms!!

Here is a pic of my MIL, Lynn with the twins

This is my mom, Susan with the twins.

new milestone .. smiles!!

Kendall and Kylie have accomplished their first milestones .. smiles. Pictures will follow but, I am so proud of them ... they are 6 1/2 weeks old and have smiled right on time (amazing to me b/c they were 3 weeks early!). Of course their first smiles were at Daddy (don't they get all the credit) on Sunday .. but they have popped a few smiles at me and even more today!

I am also proud to say that I survived my first night with Guenter out of town. My MIL helped with the 8 pm feeding and I did the 12 and 4 feedings by myself ... and even made it to bootcamp this morning. I am proud to say that the girls slept in their stroller while I ran two miles ... with my one mile time @ 9 mins. not bad considering I was pushing over 50 lbs. in the stroller!

Too many toys!!!

Here is a pic of Maddie's room after her and Guenter were playing for the day. There was absolutey nothing left on the shelves or even her bed .. needless to say several boxes of toys have been removed from her room ... I am sick of cleaning this up :-) !!

Almost 6 weeks old

Here are some of the latest pics of the girls below. They are doing wonderful and are truely well adjusted babies. I even have them taking naps in their cribs (2 hours). I could never get Maddie and Guenter to do this until they were 4 months old.

Guenter is still like that expression "white on rice" when it comes to the girls. We call him the hoovering parent. Unlike Maddie who will say "that baby is crying" and really is not intrested!

Enjoy the pics below:
