NICU Reunion

We had quite a busy weekend! On Saturday, we attended the Seton Medical Center NICU Reunion. It was really fun to see a lot of the nurses and doctors that took such great care of the boys during the hardest time of their lives. They were all gladly excited to see how much the boys have grown. We really only have good things to say about the NICU at Seton. Evan and Aiden received such great care there.

Saturday night, the Rollands kept the boys for us while David and I went out. It was really nice to be able to eat with both hands!

The food of the week was butternut squash, and the boys really liked this one. We're still working with Evan on the swallowing part, but Aiden has caught on to this eating thing really well.

Places to Sit

The new food of the week was carrots, and the boys had a new place to eat them. They got new high chairs this weekend. Aiden and Evan really like to sit in them. Our new babysitter, Katie, starts today so that I can hopefully go back to working part time.

The carrots won.

Aiden liked his carrots.

So handsome.

More Peas, Please!!

Wow!! It is amazing how far the boys have progressed in the last month. They are both on their way to sitting up. Evan can sit for a few seconds by himself before he loses his balance. Aiden is a little too wiggly to sit by himself, but he has mastered grabbing his toes. Both boys are rolling over, although Evan still has not rolled back to tummy. They have really discovered their toys, as well. They love grabbing them and putting them (along with everthing else) in their mouths.

And, speaking of mouths.... I may or may not have felt a little bump on Aiden's gums this morning. I guess we'll find out in the next few days. We tried baby food peas this week (first baby food).

Aiden's turn.

They were not quite sure what to think.

Just another day on the farm for Aiden. He is all business in the exersaucer!!

Happy Easter!

We had a great first Easter with the boys. It is hard to believe that one year ago, we filled these same eggs with M&Ms that said "Twins" and "C-U October" to give to our families. Well.... half of the M&Ms were correct.

No Easter egg hunts this year, but the boys did go to church again this Sunday.



The boys helped Mommy and Daddy do yard work on Saturday.
