A Very Belated Easter April 5, 2008

Posted by mandsrix in Baltimore Ricks.

Due to popular demand, I am posting some pictures of the boys.  Several of the pictures are of the boys in their Easter outfits which they didn’t wear on Easter Sunday because I had the flu and didn’t do much of anything.  However, we still celebrated later and the babies “helped” me fill plastic eggs with candy and hide them around the house for Marc and Matt to find.  Elijah really enjoyed sucking on the eggs but Gabriel seemed bored by the whole thing.  If I posted all the pictures, you would be able to see that in a few minutes Elijah went through a wide range of emotions and activities while Gabe faced the camera the entire time wearing a face that seemed to say “Mom, this is lame.”

In other news, the boys recently had a doctor’s appointment and we are pleased to say that they are now both on the normal growth curve (albeit the 3rd percentile) and are weighing in at a chunky 12lbs 10oz(Gabe) and 11lbs 11oz(Elijah).  We feel very blessed to have made it through the winter without them catching an illness or having to visit the hospital.

Do I detect a hint of red in their hair, or is that just the pictures?

Yes- they definitely have some red in their hair… we’re not sure where it came from. But it sure makes things interesting when we hang out with Marc’s Irish friend and red-head Finnbar. Yesterday we went out for lunch between conference sessions and I think many people were assuming that Finn was the daddy, not Marc.

The boys are soooo cute! I’m so glad they’re on the normal growth curve and that they haven’t been sick. Do you still have to feed them every 3 hours?

They are still eating every 2-3 hours in the daytime, but are now sleeping for a 5 hour stretch every night. I feel much more rested and they are getting to be so fun. They are more interactive and cry a lot less. Now I know why people have more babies… you forget the really tough first months!

That’s so true! Thankfully things DO get better!

I’m happy to see some pictures of your cute little boys. I only have one and feel overwhelmed sometimes—I don’t even think I can imagine all that you have to do with twins. I am happy that you are feeling more rested and that the boys are having fun playing around. It sounds like they had fun on Easter. I think I am getting better at distinguishing Gabe from Elijah and Elijah from Gabe, but do you have any suggestions for those of us who haven’t had a chance to meet your little guys?
