Four Months old

November 16th, 2010 — 9:45pm

Benjamin (left) & Michael (right)

Hard to believe the boys are 4 1/2 months old already.  Here are the stats from their doctor visit last week:

Michael – 15 lbs 7.5 oz  length – 25 1/4 ”

Benjamin – 15 lbs 3 oz length – 25″

They are both doing really well.  Michael’s cavernous hemangioma (big bump on his forehead) is hopefully gotten as big as its going to and will start to recede. 

Both boys are getting more active and grabbing at toys and love to try to stand.  They both do well at daycare and come home exhausted most days.  They’ve done finger painting, painting with their feet, playing in water, and reading books.

My favorite time of day is first thing in the morning.  They are full of smiles and “talk” up a storm while they are getting dressed.  They’ve even been good on the weekends allowing us to sleep in until about 8:00 am.

Meeting GGmom

November 1st, 2010 — 6:34pm

Benjamin is on the left and Michael is on the right.

Last weekend we took the boys on their first overnight road trip.  We went to Baltimore, MD to see my grandmother (the boys great grandmother aka ggmom).  This was the weekend before my grandmother turned 103!  The boys did great in the car and pretty good at night being in strange locations.  We also got to visit with my cousin Caroline and her family and my Uncle Gerry and Aunt Anne.

GGmom really enjoyed meeting the boys and I’m so glad we got a chance to take them to meet her.

Three months old

October 1st, 2010 — 8:22pm

Benjamin (left) and Michael (right)

Today the boys are 3 months old.  It’s amazing how quickly time has gone.  This past week was my first week back to work and the boys started going to daycare.  They are doing great at daycare and come home completely exhausted. 

I haven’t weighed them since they went to the doctor at 2 months but they are definately getting chunky.  They now smile at you and follow you accross the room.  They like playing with the toys hanging from their playmat.  The swing is the favorite thing for both of them.  

Both boys sleep through the night on a regular basis (hopefully I didnt just jinx myself) going from about 10:00pm to 6:30am when we wake them up to go to daycare.

Two months old

September 23rd, 2010 — 2:45pm


Benjamin (left) & Michael (right)

Well I guess I’d better post their 2 month old picture and stats before they turn 3 months old. 

Benjamin – 11 lbs 10 oz and 22 1/4″ long

Michael – 11 lbs 10 oz and 22″ long

They are both doing great.  They both have good head control, smile at you on occassion (and no it’s not just gas), and the big milestone is sleeping through the night!  They will generally sleep about 8 hours straight at night.  We still can’t tell them apart so Benjamin continues to have his toenail painted blue.

Look Mom no tags!

August 9th, 2010 — 4:07pm

On August 7th we decided that it was time to remove the hospital id tags since their legs had nearly out grown the tags.  Mom and Dad still can’t tell them apart so Benjamin now has blue nail polish on his big toe!

One Month Old

We survived the first month!  Benjamin and Michael are doing great.  At their one month appointment they both got the thumbs up from the doctor. Here are their stats:

Benjamin – 7 lbs 15 oz and 20 1/4″

Michael – 8 lbs 1 oz and 20″

Both have gained 2 lbs since birth and grown about 2″ .  WOW!

They have both settled into somewhat of a routine and usually only one of them gets fussy at a time.  The boys and Mom have been out on a  few outings including the bank, the library, and the grocery.  Automatic doors are my new best friend.

First OSU football game

June 16th, 2010 — 2:34pm

Saturday, November 14, 2009, started like any other football Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, until I decided to take a home pregnancy test.

Shocked that the test was positive, it put a whole new spin on things.

It was already going to be an exciting day as we were headed to the OSU-Iowa football game.  This game was going to determine which team from the Big 10 was going to go to the Rose Bowl.

It was a beautiful November day and the game turned into a nail biter as it went into overtime.  OSU did manage to win 27-24.  OSU went on to win the Rose Bowl 26-17 against Oregon.

It will forever be the day that changed our lives.  Little did we know at that time that there were two surprises instead of one.
