OMG...we're getting sooo old! Oh no...kids don't say things like that...only adults! I can't believe it's been 4 months already...we've been parents for 4 months. We waited for so long and here we are. We were talking about where we were a year ago...we were so hoping that the IVF worked and we got sooo lucky!
Here's the latest:
Matthew - weighs 14 pounds even, is 24 1/4 inches long, and has a head circumference of 16 1/2 inches...he has a big dome! He's been smiling, laughing, and cooing. He also rolls over occasionally. He's a really funny kid and will smile at the wall if it suits his fancy. He falls asleep almost instantly, but gets really angry if he's woken up early. He loves to read with Mommy/Daddy and is doing a great job of following the pages of a book.
Hailey - weights 11 pounds 2 ounces, is 23 3/4 inches long, and has a head circumference of 15 1/2 inches...she's so much more petite! She is smiling a ton, talking to us (if you can call it talking), has rolled over (she tried to show the doctor this afternoon), and just loves playing and having conversations. She LOVES her Daddy and lights up when he looks at her or talks to her...she's definitely going to be a Daddy's girl...and he's wrapped around her finger. You have to work to get a smile out of Hailey, but when you do, it feels so good because you know she means it. She loves when you sing to her.
All in all, we're doing really well. We've adapted to having two more little beings to keep alive in our house...granted, all the plants have gone to shit, but the kids and the dog are still alive and that's what is important, right? It's just all so amazing b/c I never thought I'd be here and now I am...and I love every minute of it!
