Sibling Love

Niki sent me this pic last week. Isn't it adorable? She said they were getting fussy, so she picked them up to console. Kyla quickly settled, but Lucas did not. That's when Kyla reached over and took hold of Lucas' shirt and looked at him directly in the eyes. Niki said she couldn't tell if Kyla was saying, "It'll be okay, Lucas" or "Listen here, bub. Stop that!" LOL Either way, looks like it helped calm him down!

They also had their two month check up on August 11th and here were their stats:

weight: 11 lbs (52%)
length: 22.5 inches (51%)
head circumference: 15.25 inches (46%)

weight: 12 lbs 13 oz (71%)
length: 23.25 inches (57%)
head circumference: 15.75 inches (48%)

Look at them grow!!!!

Our story in pictures

I made a photo montage for Niki, Nathan, and the twins. It took me quite awhile and I had to keep tissues nearby because I kept tearing up...lol. It's just such a beautiful story with a happy ending...plus I miss them all. Anyway, here's the final product!

One month old! (Already?!?!)

Lucas and Kyla turned a month old yesterday! I can't believe it's already been a month since they came into the world! Nathan and Niki took them for their well child visit yesterday morning. Lucas weighs 9 lbs. 2 oz. and is 21.75 inches long! Kyla is 8 lbs. 1 oz. and 21 inches even! I asked Niki if they're feeding them Miracle Grow...lol. The babies also got their shots. :(

Here's a pic taken yesterday. Could they be any more adorable? I think not.

4th of July weekend visit

We spent the weekend with Nathan, Niki, Kyla, and Lucas and had a great time! I was able to see a lot of their extended family again and their extended family was able to meet David and my kiddos. We watched fireworks from Nathan's grandmother's backyard, as her house backs up to Southfork Ranch and they had a great fireworks show. Then, yesterday, we ate at Rainforest Cafe. My kids loved it and it was the twins first time to go to a restaurant. I think Nathan only dropped food on Lucas' head once. :)

Kyla and Lucas have both grown a lot, especially Lucas. He's so much heavier than his sister. And Kyla is very dramatic. She's pretty calm and content until she something makes her mad, like having her diaper changed. I honestly have never heard a little baby scream the way she does...lol. What a drama queen! I really enjoyed cuddling with them over the weekend. I'm happy to have had that time with them because we all know it won't be long until they'll push everyone away and only let very few cuddle...lol.

Here are some pics from our visit:

Niki snapped a pic of Kyla and me trying to get our beauty sleep

They don't quite fit in my lap like they did 4 weeks ago...lol.

Lucas is on the left, Kyla is on the right. Aren't they precious?

Happy Due Date Day!

Yep, today is the day the babies were due! Hard to believe they're here and 3 weeks old already...yet I can't imagine that I should've been pregnant up until today either!

They had an appointment with the orthopedist for Lucas' arm today and he said he's healing just fine! What a relief! Niki also said the babies have their own distinct personalities. I can't wait to see for myself...and I'll get the chance this weekend! I'm so excited! :)

More pics and an update

Here are some more pics of the big day!

This is what it's all about! The happy family's first picture together!

Sweet Kyla sleeping...

Precious Lucas holding on to his daddy...

Sleeping beauty

Poor Lucas with his cast

Lucas' x-ray :(
Lucas is doing better. They removed his cast last week and he's in a sling. However, Niki says the sling doesn't work well on a baby, so they often just swaddle him tightly and he's happy with that. :) He goes back on July 2nd (their due date) to be re-evaluated. He is also 1 oz over his birth weight and Kyla is now up 4 oz!

We will be visiting Nathan, Niki, Kyla and Lucas next weekend for the 4th of July! I can't wait to see them all again! I'm sure I'll have more pics to share. :)

As for me, I'm doing much better. My energy is coming back finally and I feel like me again. :) I have lost 40 pounds since the day the babies were born, which puts me at 21 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight. I've also gone from a size 14 to a size 10, so I'm happy...lol.

Here's a pic of me that was taken today:
