1 Month: Twins

The twins are a month old. Actually, the official date was Sunday the 7th. I had good intentions on doing this Sunday, didn't happen. Then again yesterday. I did get the pictures taken yesterday but no post. Now its almost 9:00 pm 2 days later and I'm finally getting a chance to sit down and upload them (of course having to break every few minutes to calm Elliott down!). With Jack I would come up with a new place to take his picture and then spend as much time as I wanted with him, different poses etc... That won't be the case with Lillie and Elliott. I tried to catch Elliott awake, but Jack was awake too. I tried to take pictures of him on the bed, but Jack wanted up there too. Then I had to try to keep Jack off of Elliott, not an easy task. By the time I had things sort of under control Elliott was done, not interested in pictures anymore. So I had to take what I could right then with the sign and be happy with it. This was all yesterday morning. I didn't get around to Lillie till later last night. Since I only had a few pictures of Elliott I didn't have high expectations for my pictures of Lillie. So here you go. Lillie and Elliott 1 month old. We can't believe how fast time has gone by. We are so thankful for a short time in the NICU and getting to bring them home together. They are mostly sleeping and eatting. They are becoming more alert each day, but we haven't quite made it to the eat, play, sleep routine that we are working toward. Considering they techinically still have a week before their due date they are doing great!
