The twins went to the Dr. last week. They are 4 months already!! Here are the stats:
  • 13 pounds (25th percentile)
  • 25 3/4 inches
  • Head Circumference: 16 inches
  • smiles
  • laughs
  • coos
  • sometimes sucks his thumb
  • does not roll over yet
  • will not push up yet
  • does not like to take naps in his crib!
  • started eating rice cereal June 24th
  • Dr. says he will be long and thin, feed him as much as he wants, whenever he wants


  • 10 pounds 15 ounces (5th percentile)
  • 23 inches
  • head circumference: 16 inches
  • smiles
  • laughs
  • coos
  • rolled over from back to tummy June 27th and from tummy to back
  • pushes up when on her tummy
  • sucks her thumb
  • teething, may be getting a tooth on the side
  • likes to nap in her crib
  • started eating rice cereal June 24th
Al in all they are both doing very good. They got 3 shots again this time. Nicholas developed a fever that night and had me up about 5 times. Poor baby! Vanessa didn't seem to have any reaction.
Sarah also saw the Dr. becuase she said her ear hurt. I am never sure if she is just looking for attention or not, so since we were going there anyway, I had him look at it. He said her ears were clear, thank goodness!

Sarah "graduates" from preschool this coming Tuesday. It is at a park near us. Should be very cute! They have been practising their songs. Sarah also has started swim lessons. She seems to like it. She also is going camping this summer with Nanny (aunt Donna) and Uncle Randy. So her summer is booking up. She starts kindergarten August 26th. I will take that day off work because I want to drop her off and pick her up from school. There also an orientation for kindergarten parents. And the twins have their 6 month check-up that day. It will be a busy day!

Another Random Post

So it has been quite a while since I posted. Not much has changed. I went back to work on May 18th. So far it is going pretty good. I miss my kids terribly, but I am not the "Stay At Home Mom." type, I need the adult interaction. Which I think is very strange considering I have loved children ever since I can remember. I even wanted to be a kindergarten teacher. And now being home with my own kids is very stressful for me. Oh well, some women are meant to be home and some just are not. I love my kids very much and will do anything for them of course.

Now on to the children. Sarah is doing very well in preschool. The year is pretty much over, but they have a ton of stuff planned for the summer. Her preschool graduation is June 30th. It is at a local park, so it should be a lot of fun. She is so excited! She calls it her "gradulation."

Sarah went to Atascadero with Tim's parents last weekend. They stayed and Bob and Leah's. Sarah said she had a good time. I heard she went to the biys baseball game and was the "honorary cheerleader" for the team. So cute! I wish I had it on video. She told Leah she wants to go back to swim and see the horses. I told Leah anytime you want to take her this summer, just let me know!

Nicholas and Vanessa are doing good too. I cannot beleive how big Nicholas is! He has got to be about 14 pounds by now. And he is really long! He is in 3-6 mos clothes and will probably be out of them within the next month or so. I think he has the Thiele height. He is sleeping through the night (or has for the last 3 days). He smiles, coos, and just started to laugh.

Vanessa is just a little peanut. She is probably about 9 or 10 pounds. She has been sleeping through the night for about a week or so. I usually go in and get her at 6:45 when we leave for work. And she is usually just laying in her crib smiling away. She is smiling, cooing, laughing and talking. She does things quicker than Nicholas.

My parents have decided what the three kids will be doing when they grow up:
Sarah will be the actress (she is so drama!)
Vanessa will be the doctor (she does things ahead of Nicholas)
Nicholas will be the garbage truck driver (he is just slower, but hey, they make good money!)

I thought that was so true!

The next appoitment for the twins is at the end of the month. I will post stats then. I will also post pics soon too. I have some from Ted and Heather's wedding that I need to post.

Here are some pictures of bathtime. They both seem to like their baths. Nicholas loves the whole thing. Being washed, dried and lotioned up. Vanessa likes being washed, dried, but once you start the lotion, forget it! She cries every time! Weird! But we seem to have a good routine going. This is my last week of being off so we will see if we can get into a new routine next week.

Vanessa-wondering what is going on.

Nicholas-Look at that double chin!

9 1/2 week check-up

Well actually it is their 2 month but I was a little late getting them in. So here are the stats:

Nicholas-10 lbs. 12 ozs (25 percentile), 23 inches long (50 percentile), 15 1/2 inches head circumference

Vanessa-8 lbs. 13 ozs (10 percentile), 22 inches (50 percentile), 15 1/2 inches head circumference

Both got 2 shots and this other oral medication. Nicholas seems to be in a little pain from one of the shots so I gave him Tylenol. Vanessa seems okay. They are doing really well though. I am starting to sleep train them. The Dr. says don't let them sleep longer than 2 hours at a time during the day, hoping this will hekp them sleep a little more at night. I go back to work in 2 weeks, so hopefully we can get this started so it will help me.

This weekend is Ted and Heather's wedding! We are all so excited! The twins will be with their father overnight becuase the wedding is so late. The day will start at 10:30 when I drop the kids off! Sarah is getting excited to walk down the aisle. I will get lots of pictures and upload them next week. Well that is all for now.

Vanessa at the park

Nicholas at the park


At the playground


This morning I took the kids to the park. It is such a nice day here I thught we should get out a little. Plus my time at home is coming to an end, so I should make the best of it. I go back to work May 18th.

Sarah apperantly has 2 new pets. She has two dogs, Joseph and Alea. She says they are like Marley in "Marley and Me." So this morning when we went to the park we had to bring the dogs with us. She tied them to the stroller and when they had to go potty she let them off and even picked up after them! And when we got to the park she threw the bags in the trash. She has such an imagination!

6 weeks

Sarah feeding Vanessa

Time sure does fly! The twins are 6 weeks old and they are doing great, except for the sleeping part. I guess they aren't doing terrible, but during the day they can go about 4 hours without being fed. But at night they go about 2-3 hours! UGH! At least for the weekend my aunt Donna(Sarah's Nanny) and uncle Randy will be here. They had twins about 24 years ago, so they know what it is like. So while they are here they said they would do the night shift for me. I am so excited because I am so tired!
Last night Vanessa woke up at 3:15 am. I got her changed and made a bottle, then we went in to my room, turned on VH1, and guess what was on? New Kids on the Block! It was a show all about them! I was in heaven! Then as I was feeding Vanessa she gave me her first real smile! It was so big and so cute! Just melted my heart!
Sarah is doing good. We had a re-check appt. at the dr. yesterday for her ear infection. She is all clear. Then we went over to Uncle Ted's (Unc/Best Friend) and Heather Boss's (Heath) house. Sarah loves seeing her Best Friend! They played marbles and she helped him water his flowers. Heather and I sat inside and talked and fed babies. Aunt Heather is getting very good at feeding the babies. Maybe next time I can get her to change a diaper!
