Life with Twins: 11 weeks Old

The twins are 11 weeks old tomorrow! Time is flying by! Woo!  I can't help but want it to slow down just a little, to take every moment in...and I do by photographing and videotaping my kids on my iPhone.  What did parents do before this great handheld technology?

Life with twins is so joyful.  I can't imagine anything different. Over dinner my husband and I frequently comment on how blessed our marriage has been by Franklin and Elizabeth.  We have so many ample opportunities to work together, side by side.  You have to remember with twins - each parent has a baby, man on man so we are constantly in tandem as a team.  Whether it is feeding the babies, bathing them, going on walks, or just playing together as a family - my husband and I have witnessed how in sync we are as a couple.  It's a blast to see this wonderful rhythm between the two and now the four of us as a family! 

I've gone back to work just part time, making for an easier transition.  We have a wonderful nanny who comes to the house and plays and takes care of the twins while Mom is at the office for 1/2 a day.  We love, love our nanny.  Not only do we not have to get two babies out of the house in the morning (can you imagine!), but they get to nap in their own beds, get the unique one on one attention as well as stay on their own little schedules.  We also hope to avoid germs this way too:) Again, truly a blessing to have found a christian nanny to come into our house and care for our little ones. 

Babies updates:
- Franklin is laughing and giggling.  It's too fun!
- Ella is like a frog, always with her legs bent and moving
- Ella has clearly found her tongue and loves sticking it out!
- They smile frequently
- Love walks and baths for their evening routine
- Are sleeping a solid 7-8 hours each night now (yay!!)
-Most definitely recognize their Mommy and Daddy:)
