a Rare Moment

Ahhh, a very rare moment when both girls have been fed / burped / pooped / changed / swaddled / and asleep at the same time. Thank God for small favors!

Their First Friend

The twins got to meet their first friend today. Brooke Latterell was born just nine days after they were. They're sure to be good friends as Ben and Maggie are the best of buddies with Brooke's older brother and sister. After looking at my tiny, fair-skinned girls for 3 weeks, it was a real shock to meet beautiful Brooke whose Korean mom gave her darker coloring and black hair (plus, tons of it!). Brooke, we're so glad you're here! Can't wait for all the years of fun to follow!

Velcro Monkey

Brian and I call this look the "Velcro Monkey" because the girls seem to cling to us like little monkey attached with velcro. I LOVE how babies keep their knees tucked up to their chests for a short time after their birth, and it makes me really sad when they outgrow this stage.

If it weren't for the blankets...

If it weren't for these blankets with the girls' names embroidered on them, we would be mixing them up much more often. We try to keep each girl with her respective blanket at bedtime, so when Brian and I are too exhausted to tell them apart in the middle of the night, we just look at the blanket wrapped around each one!

just like their sister

I snapped this shot of the Bree & Betsy today. They are 7 days old.
The picture below was taken of Maggie when she was 9 days old. If I had delivered them all at the same time, I think they could have passed for triplets.
