Merry Christmas!!!

A few shots from our holiday-themed photo shoot. Hopefully we'll get our acts together and see you all soon in the New Year. Until then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Not that excited about the photo shoot.

Was that an elf in the window???

So, the pre-Christmas excitement hasn't really impacted George and Ollie- we're all settling into our eat/clean/snuggle/repeat lifestyle... it's best just to roll with it and put away the to-do lists. They're getting fussier, and bigger. Still wicked cute (4 AM meltdowns notwithstanding).

TONS of snow here in SoPo. I'm looking forward to having a team of four attack the driveway in the near future.

Big Day Out

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

So, the house is finally warmed up (all relative, with our miserly control of the thermostat), and we're settling into/coming to grips with our new 3-hour life cycle. The boys are up to 7 lbs 1 ounce (Jorgito) and 6 lbs 3 ounces (Ollito). BIG! It's starting to seem real that these are in fact our sons, or at least our new, fussy housemates.
We've learned that the baby monitor is not that effective with two in the crib ("well, at least one of them seems to be doing ok..."), and we're starting to differentiate between their whimpers and wails. All in all, some good progress.

Settling in...

After three long weeks, including an extra night in the hospital due to a power-outage, the boys made it home to a SUPER chilly house.

Finally home...

Still Waiting....

Today is Saturday, December 6th. The boys are officially 2 weeks old today! George and Oliver continue to make Maine Medical Center's Continuing Care Nursery their home. We are currently working on some feeding issues and dreaming of the day they can come home to South Portland.
