Caitlin waiting for sleep

Here's a nice picture of Caitlin as she thinks about going to sleep after a good feed and a bath. Cara was already asleep when I took this.

More Lego

Meghan doesn't have enough Lego yet so while we were visiting the new Toys'r'us near the house (they have been sending coupons for a month so it would have been rude not to go), we picked up a cement mixer figuring it had strong play value.
It goes well with the box of Lego that she got from cousin Geoffrey.

Really, we were at the store to pick up some extra supplies for the twins..

Sasha Came To Visit

Meghan had a little break today from the usual routine; Sasha came to visit and they had lots of fun. They tried out Meghan's new chairs, played with the water table, checked out the bicycle trailer. Dada didn't take a lot of pictures but Asel did..

The Tanning Beds Are Gone

We took Cara and Caitlin back to the hospital yesterday for another checkup and their jaundice is now down to normal levels so the tanning beds have gone home. They have also been eating so well that Cara put on 4-5 oz in one day! Caitlin put on 2-3 oz which is very good but still less than her little sister.

Tanning Beds

The twins have a little jaundice and have their own tanning beds to help them get over it.


Meghan was home from daycare today and helping to feed her baby sisters:

Meghan got a chariot and is zooming around the neighborhood, spurring on the horses with cries of 'Dada, ride!'.

We bought a trailer for the bike and Meghan loves it - she climbs in, straps herself in and then calls for me to come and ride around the neighborhood. This thing is well made, light-weight and has cup-holders! It also has a 5-point harness system for twins and can be converted into a stroller.

I was asleep on the couch (up late helping with babies) and she came and woke me up to tell me we were going for our second ride of the day..

Of course, being the helpful mini-engineer that she is, I couldn't just put it together and inflate the tyres without some sort of helpful assistance.


Look what I found!

I was trying to occupy Meghan this morning so I said, "Let's make a cake" so Meghan replied "Egg!" and walked to the fridge. She can also say butter but not sugar..

It's Late..

It's late and everyone else is asleep. As I type that, Caitlin wakes up behind me because she's hungry or needs changing. It's only been two days but I can tell them apart by their noises (Cara makes higher-pitched noises) and their feeding habits (Caitlin eats more and protests more when hungry).

Meghan Met Her Sisters

It was a long day but I remembered to pick up Meghan from daycare and then we went for a dad-daughter meal at Chick-Fil-A where, while we dined on chicken nuggets, I explained the new family order, got her saying 'babies' and 'antiseptic handwash' then took her to meet her sisters.

She seemed ok until one of the worms with heads started crying. She was comfortable pointing at noses and eyes but not holding them and looked a little distressed when we got too close. She was happier after we went for a walk to the jello fridge and we used the antiseptic handwash a couple of dozen times.. she actually wanted to check Mom's tummy to see if the babies were still in there.

On the way home, she asked about Mum and Grandma several times.. and as she falling asleep, she was asking about the babies.

The Twins Are Here

Cara (5 lbs, 11oz) and Caitlin (6lb, 4.7oz) were born today around 12.50 and took turns to cry. So far we think they look like each other but only some of the time. Everything went well and Mum is feeling lighter.

Here's a picture:

Today is the Day!

Today is the day that Meghan gets to meet her two baby sisters.

We are waiting in the hospital at the moment, Aey is sleeping and her Mum is watching tv, all of us getting some rest while we can.

The nurses have been and done their thing, the OB dropped in to see if everything is ok and now we are just waiting.

So far, the favorite names are Caitlin and Cara.. that may change.

Pictures later!
