Richard Simmons step aside!
Sadie and Trista are getting their own personality and we are enjoying watching them grow and change. The past two weeks they have recognized themselves in the mirror and are smiling and laughing. Trista is over 8 lbs and Sadie is not far behind. They have one feeding in the middle of night giving me about 6.5 hours sleep in between 7pm when they go bed till 7AM when we wake them up.(the sacrifices we make for breastfed babies- but it is SO worth it). Sounds good huh? well it would be if I actually went to bed when they do but much is to be done after they are down but I wont go thru my list. We just didn't think we could love something so much other than each other. Chris and I have grown closer as a couple especially since having the twins--it requires team work. I am so thankful for his help with feeding, changing, burping and swaddling-he's the king of swaddling. As most of you know I have the best photographer at my fingertips. Look at these cuties-if I must say so myself. Benjamin get ready cause these girls are gonna give you a run for you money:)
Granddad Thurmond really enjoyed them smiling at him last weekend when we went to visit too.

They are not lacking for love in this family. Their Auntie Larce and Uncle Steve smother them with tons of love, butt pats and neck kisses.
Auntie Larce spent two weeks with us to help out. I must say it was therapy for me-as most sisters are when they get together-we laughed for 14 days straight! I would stumble to the nursery half asleep only to find Lara already changing and soothing the one crying. And yes many mornings I would feed and then we'd just fall back asleep with them in bed with us. Oh, I know what you're thinking. All I can say is you have NO idea until you have two at the same time.
Our two weeks consisted of lots of laughs, trip to Trader Joes where I fed in the parking lot, a walk around Green Hills mall where we were stopped by every passerby,walks at the park. Even jogged a little the other day while pushing them(that's going to take some time)tons of rocking, snuggling and love. Trista even took her first tumble off the couch-Auntie Larce felt real bad but decided after she was fine and didn't even cry that she would pass on calling me while Chris and I were out to dinner! Thanks Lara for all your help and my wonderful Indian Dinner for my birthday, it was the BEST!- I had so much fun. I even think the girls know you are missing today. WE LOVE YOU!
