Fern, so glad to hear you figured out a way to get what you want! I hope you succeed in your fet. Siblings are nothing less than wonderful. Stalking!

That's exciting Fern. Best of luck to you.

This week I made a bunch of purees. Plum, sweet potato, pea, carrot, apples. I put them in ice cube trays and froze them. DH is feeding them once per day. We will try to work up to 2 times per day. Today Oliver was on his knees and hands. That boy will be crawling soon! So crazy. Claire isn't that mobile but she can sit on her own now.

Hello everyone!

I apologize in advance for not commenting on each your posts. I have read and enjoyed hearing your updates with all the adorable kiddos. It's amazing that last year at this time we were all in the first trimester of pregnancy and here we are talking about our 4-6 mi th old kids!

So the twins are doing very well. Tomorrow (Friday, July 7) they will be 7 months! Due to their early arrival they are about 2.5 months behind where they should be for 7 month olds but eventually they will catch up. They are rolling both ways. Alisa does quite well with lifting her head, while Joe is rather weaker and can't hold up his head as long.
They're are still taking bottles only of pumped breast milk and I supplement 1 bottle at night and 1 in the morning of formula as I am a bit short on my supply. We are not eating solids yet, they are not nearly strong enough to sit in a high chair and they are very uninterested in food.
Last week they started sleeping through the night! They go in for the night about 7pm and usually go until 6:30am. It has been a wonderful week
As of August I will be leaving my job to stay home with them all day. I feel sad and guilty not spending more time with them so we made the decision last week that I will be a SAHM! I'm excited and nervous but I think it will be great for all of us.

Woo Hoo Rebecca. Glad you get to stay at home and you got that all worked out! Best of luck to you. Thank you for sharing a pic of your lovely cuties! SOOO adorable! They look so alike!! Claire and Oliver are so different so it is cute that yours look more like twins.

We are doing well here. Still getting situated in Florida but we are getting there. Only a few more boxes left in the house. :P
I found a photographer here and we are going to do 6 month photos (a little late) in a few weeks. I'm excited. It is so amazing how fast they change!
Babies are eating more solids and getting more mobile. Oliver actually crawled a few feet last week but hasn't crawled since. They are getting up on their hands and knees all the time. DH just bought a baby fence the other day. I think we will need it sooner rather than later.

Hope you are all doing well!
