So Many Changes!

We'll alot has changed around our house in the past couple of months and it seems like it keeps changing. I've offically quit my job and staying home with the girls. They had orginally told me that I would be able to work from home after I had the babies but then said I wouldn't be able to when it was time for me to start back. So, now I'm working for Duane and doing all the office work plus I'm going to be selling cabinets/ new jobs. Please keep us in your prayers as we step out in "Faith" and trust God. I know he will always provide for us!!

The girls are doing great and they keep changing so much. They have chubby little cheeks and have really started smiling alot. We are so blessed to have "TWO" very happy babies. Duane went out walking with us the other night for our first offical "Family Walk". LOL! The girls just love it!

Our new Jogging Stroller and the girls LOVED IT!!!

Our morning walk!

The girls turned 2 months old today. Duane & I took them to the doctor yesterday and boy have they grown. Emma weighs 10lbs 12oz and 21 inches long. Ava weighs 11 lbs 1oz and 21 1/2 inches long. They both got an A+ on the physical and developmental exam. They got a shot in both legs and an oral medicine which made them pretty cranky last night. They ran a little fever so we gave them some baby tylenol and they are feeling better today. The doctor told us that would be the side affect of the shots and it's normal. Besides all of that we are all doing great!

Duane found us a jogger stroller on Craigs List. I've been wanting to start exercising and taking the girls for a walk since it should start cooling off soon. My incession is pretty much healed now so we went for our first walk on Tuesday. It felt so great to get out and get some exercise and the girls loved it. My friend Alicia and her 3yr old daughter came to visit the girls on Tuesday and stayed the night with us. We had a great time catching up with each other!

7 Weeks Old Already!

The girls will turn 7 weeks old tomorrow and they are growing so fast. They are really starting to fill out and get some chubby cheeks. We've had more visitors come by the house to see them!

I had to go to the doctor Thursday because my incession split open in two places. Dr. Greenburg said I must of had some fluid behind the incession that needed to be released so thats what caused it to split. I have to clean it 4 times a day and then go back next week to make sure its better. He said it should heal just fine!

Ava loving her swing!

Duane & I have been reading to the girls at night and it really helps to calm the girls down. We are all doing very good and they seem to be sleeping much better. They turned 6 weeks old today and they slept for 5 straight hours last night. We were SHOCKED that they slept so long but it was WONDERFUL.
