Just a few new pics

Let me say - it is SO HARD to find time to take these babies' pictures! I'm doing the best I can, though, so here is a few new pictures of the twins. They'll be eight weeks old on Tuesday!

Six Weeks Old!

I can't believe the babies are six weeks old tonight! How unbelivably fast it is going already!

The boys are doing wonderfully. Tucker started showing some colicky signs a few weeks ago, and would scream unconsolably from about 10pm - 4am. Fortunately for us, our good friend, Preston, is a chiropractor and offered to adjust Tucker for us in hopes it would help with the colic. I am happy to report that after the very FIRST treatment, Tucker slept through the night only waking to eat and then right back to sleep. In fact, he hasn't had ONE MOMENT of colic since that first adjustment! Thank Goodness for good friends like Preston and Jeannie!

Here are a few new pictures of the boys. They're really changing quickly now, and starting to fill out. They're both getting chubby cheeks and chins, and little rolls in their thighs. I think they're both going to be chunky little guys!

6 Random Things About Me:

1.) Six weeks ago, I gave birth to twin boys and ended up with a drug-free vaginal birth AND an emergency c-section. Talk about a double-whammy!

2.) I was born and have lived in Kansas my whole life. Some may find the state of Kansas quite plain and boring, but I, for one, love it here, and wouldn't want to raise my family anywhere else!

3.) I have never been on an airplane. Sad, I know, but I hope to someday soon change this fact!

4.) I am a cancer survivor. In May 2003, I had a mole removed from my thigh that turned out to be melanoma. To date, I haven't had any other suspicious-looking spots pop up, and I hope to keep it that way!

5.) My favorite hobby is photography and digital creations. I love making beautiful, custom party invitations, birth announcements, thank you cards, etc. All my friends love my work, so feel free to inquire! I have lots of examples.

6.) I married my best friend. Dan is not only my husband, but my best friend, as well. Most days, I feel like I have the best husband in the world. He works hard as a State Trooper and feels as strongly about my staying home to raise our kids as I do. When he's not on duty, he's at home with me trying his best to help me in any way that he can - and NEVER, EVER complains! I'm so blessed. = )

* Annie, who I miss talking to! We need to catch up, Annie!

A Couple Baby Smiles

Okay, Tucker's smile is definitely a sleepy-time (gas? haha) smile, but Hunter is very much showing the beginnings of social smiles! Yay for baby smiles!
