Ten Weeks

I can't believe that my tykes are 10 weeks old today. I actually had a dream this morning that I gave birth to another set of twins in the car that were enormous - all plump to begin with. Clearly a dream though since I also had these guys at home at this age.

A special thank you to Nancy, Mike and the littler members of the Zimmer crew for having us over for a yummy dinner last night. Penny and Ned behaved themselves (more or less) and it was wonderful to see Nancy and Mike interact with their twins who are almost 4 years old. They are wonderful parents - very easy going and loving and I hope Husband and I do half as well.

Here are some close-ups of the kids I took this weekend. Penny had her Mohawk hairstyle going on. It seems to be the natural state of things. They also have started smiling more and not just because they are gassy. In honor of their ten-week status Penny slept until 3:30 am and Ned until 4 am - 7.5 hours and 8 hours respectively (bedtime started at 7 pm and they were asleep by 8 pm)! Keep your fingers crossed that this is not a fluke.

All my blogging friends are doing the National Blog Posting Month. I didn't sign up but I'm going to try to post every day in solidarity. Tonight Husband is putting the kids to bed on his own because I am going to a finance department cocktail get together at the Firm. Since Penny has been so fussy lately with taking the bottle I hope it goes well for him.

Aww You make me blush :"> We had a great time with you guys as well! Ned and Penny were adorable and they were just fine. Hope we didn't scare you too much for what you have in store for a few years ;) LOL

And MAN - that dip was sooooo good. :) Thanks for coming to see us!

Look at the smiles you captured!! Great pictures!

Good luck at bedtime tonight, Husband.

Those are GREAT pictures! They already look so much older, and so alert and happy!

Have fun being out tonight, I'm sure it'll be nice to return to your "other" life for a few hours. :-)
