6 weeks already!!

The lack of posts on the blog should be the first indication of how crazy life has been!! Sorry about that, we will try and do better. It is hard to believe that the twins are already over 6 weeks old already, however sometimes it feels like 6 months :) They are being typical babies: eating, sleeping, pooping, repeat.

The last two weeks have been very challenging, both boys have been extra fussy and whinny. I did a little snooping on the internet and apparently that is normal from weeks 3-6, so hopefully it will be over soon. I don't remember that with Emerson, but that was when life was simple with just one baby. The 'brothers' are very good at synchronizing though so it is two babies screaming their little heads for 30 mins and then two hours of quiet.

Feeding them has also been a challenge. In a perfect world I would love to have 20 mins of 'alone' time with each baby to nurse, snuggle, etc. As mentioned before they synchronize well so they want to feed at the same time. Tandem nursing has not worked yet for us, maybe when they are bigger. Also Finn has given me some trouble latching on so there is a lot of pumping and feeding with bottles which is extremely fustrating. But they are getting their breast milk and growing well. At their one month apt Oliver was 7 lb and Finn was 6 lb 2 oz.

We are all adjusting and doing pretty great. We leave for the Outer Banks in 4 days for vacation and CAN'T WAIT!!!! Oliver and Finn's first trip to the beach!!

Here are some professional pictures...
