Christmas is here!!!

We wanted to suprise some grandparents with pictures of Brandon and Brianna along with my sisters daughters Skyler and Madison in matching Christmas PJ's. The pictures came out pretty well consider how difficult it is to get two 8 month olds to cooperate for pictures at the same time. Also didn't help that Brandon was coming down with a viral infection that we didn't know about at the time and would end up later in the day running 102 degree fever.

I have some more pictures I will post in the next couple of days.

1st Halloween

Both babies got dressed up for Halloween. Brandon was a skeleton and Brianna was a pumpkin. Everyone loved their outfits that Grandpa and Grandma Kelley got them at daycare. Brianna crashed early in the evening (she had too much fun at school today). Brandon was a trouper and helped Mommy and Daddy pass out treats to the trick or treaters. He even visited his little girlfriend Nora (6 weeks old) to show off his outfit. He is definitely our night owl. Next year should be fun when we get to go trick or treating with them.

Old pictures

These are just a couple of pictures from last Halloween that I never got around to posting.

5 month update

Well, it's almost a full 5 months. Today was great day weather wise and the twins were in a great mood so we decided to snap some new pictures. This also turned out the be the first time we have been able to get both the twins to be somewhat cooperative at the same time.

Still daddys little girl

Brandon looking cool.

Talk about a big smile!!!

I get that same look after several drinks.

Brandon loves to play Superman.

Has it been long enough since I updated this? LOL! We don't have much to update on the twins other than they are growing like weeks. A recent Dr's visit showed Brianna to be slightly over 13 lbs with Brandon being just over 12 lbs. Both are now smiling regularly and Brianna has started to talk (baby talk that it). Brianna has been sleeping through the night for a good while now and we expect/hope Brandon will start to do the same pretty soon.

This past Labor Day weekend, we went to Jellystone Park for the day. It was a bit hot outside (mid 90's) and the twins were a little fussy. Was still a nice break from sitting at home as we have most of the summer with the twins being so young.

New/old pictures

Here are a couple of picture of the twins that I never got around to uploading.

Even though it was the day after they were born, this was Guens first time to hold the twins. The medicine they had Guen on was making her sick so this moment didn't get to last long before Guen had to return to her room to lay down.
Brianna was amazingly alert for only being one day old.
Brandon had to use a feeding tube for the first week while in the NICU.
This part really freeked me out. Within minutes of being born, the twins were put into my arms and the nurses told me to follow them. I had no idea where we were going till I realized we were going to show them off to the family. I was extremely nervous and was scared to death I was going to drop one of them. At this point they hadn't even been weighed or anything. They were literally only minutes old. This is both grandmothers getting to see them for the first time.
Brainna in the NICU right after getting her full check-up. Amazing how small she was. Here it is almost 10 weeks later and she has already doubled in size (literally).

This is just a quick update following the twins doctor visit today. Brianna has shot up to an amazing 9 lbs 9 ounces while Brandon is up to 8 lbs 2 ounces. Today was also the day of the first shots for them. They got a whopping 4 shots each which went suprisingly well. Both kids screamed when getting them, but quickly quieted down for mommy and daddy afterwards. It also seems like they might be finally getting to a point to where they want to start sleeping longer in one period. Unfotunately that one time seems to be happening durring the day instead of night. I guess we are going to have to work on that.

Lets try this again

Here are finally some pictures. Both are doing great although Brandon has been really fussy as of late with a cold. We took him to the doctor to get checked out and turns out he has put on almost 1-1/2 lbs in just the past week to reach 7 lbs 6 ounces. Since Brianna is usually about a pound bigger, she has to be well into the 8 lb range now. For twins, these two could not be more different. Mommy and daddy (mainly mommy) could reeeeeally use some sleep.

Brandon taking a nap with Grandma Kelley while Summer guards them.
Bath time. Even though they are only about 1 lb apart, Brianna looks huge compared to Brandon. They don't seem to mind baths that much as long as the warm water is running on them. Although, once they get cold, WATCH OUT!

Play time at home. Brandon's shirt could not be more accurate "Party all night, sleep all day (don't worry, I will keep you up too)".

Together again.
