Boys will be boys

So both the twins have been smiling and cooing and even giggling but tonight there was laughter. Anze laughed! It was the best sound in the world. I cannot believe they have grown so fast and are so strong. I am beyond proud of my little men. I can't wait to break out the video camera and tape the whole family laughing together! What a sweet, sweet sound!

4 months old!

We cannot believe our little guys are already 4 months old! It seems like yesterday we found we were having twins and then I realized that it's been almost a year since then! Geesh how time does fly! The boys had their 4month check up with the pediatrician. She was able to find their distinguishing features to tell them apart and was so excited to see Luca sans oxygen! She thinks they are doing well and said we can even try rice cereal to see how they fair with eating other than a bottle. It may be too early for them since they are only 2 months corrected but it can't hurt to try! Anyway... the dirty details everyone wants to know...

Luca: 10lbs 3oz, 22in
Anze: 10lbs 12oz, 22 3/4in

Luca has gained almost 7 lbs since birth (7lbs in 4 months is really good!) and 7in
Anze has gained 7lbs 1oz. and 7in

They are 5 lbs behind Jr when he was 4mos but he's HUGE and half his weight is in his feet and his head!

Everyone is happy and healthy. I can't believe they've been home for 2 months. We are starting to venture out more now that they've had 2 doses of shots. We've gone to the museum, the park, the towne center and on walks in the neighborhood. They love the outdoors.

Both boys are starting to really focus on sights and sounds as well as track them. They are also becoming great "cooers". They have a therapist coming to the house that works with them on fine and gross motor skills to ensure that they don't get behind developmentally. She is very nice and the boys seem to like her. They also sleep through the night... At LEAST 8 straight hours!!!

Jr is still being a great big brother. He gives them their bottles and pacifiers. He even throws away their dirty diapers! He is a wonderful helper (even if his idea of help is making a bigger mess!).

We are truly enjoying our time as a family of 5. Everything seems natural as if we weren't complete before but we are now!!!
