First Week

Here are a few pictures from the week. The babies are great - they are giving mom a little sleep at night and are eating all the time (but, still not back to birth weight). We wouldn't have been able to make it through the week without the help of Lisa's mom. The girls love the babies and keep themselves entertained so mom can sleep and feed the babies.

Oh my goodness! You have the most beautiful perfect cutest babies! Quite the wonder-woman you are Lisa. =o) Carrying twins to 39 weeks is quite an accomplishment. We had 11 or 12 sets of twins in our NICU at one time this past winter. Congrats to you too Joseph! Glad you have a little boy to help even out the odds. I bet you have your hands full trying to study and keep track of all the pitter-pattering that goes on in your home.

Take care and may God continue to bless your home.

LOVE the pics! I did think the b/w pic of Joseph was professional! See, good job! So, when does your mom have to go home? Then I can come!! :) So proud of you!

Your babies are precious! And I LOVE the picture with Malea reading the Book of Mormon! Hilarious!

What a sweet family you have... so complete, right?? Glad the babies are letting you get a LITTLE sleep, cause I'm sure it's hard!! Wish I were there to help you out a little!

Congrats on the beautiful family! I'm an old friend of Westovers, from Cornville Ward. Looks like you all have been very blessed with beautiful children.

Tarah gave me your blog address. And I can't believe that Joseph is 30! That makes me even older! Our family blog is pinestraw.blogspot, if you want to see pics.

Best wishes with the new babies. We really loved the velcro swaddle for our last one, but that'll work better as your babies get to 8# or so!

Lisa, this is Sarah Heder (Tricia's old roommate from college). You live in the same ward as my brother, Cal, and my sister-in-law, Mendy. She said you were so nice! I came across your blog from Tricia's. All I have to say is . . .

WHAT?! YOU HAD TWINS?! Congrats! You have a beautiful family. My husband, Dan's, dream is for us to have twin boys just like him and his brother. Of course, I'm pregnant with our third child and I assured him already, we are not having twins. Now, he's hoping for a boy, after two girls. We'll see!

Good to see you're doing well!

I am glad to hear that your week went so well. Isn't is great to have a mom to take care of you and those babies! I know Bryce is having a hard time keeping focused on school with the baby I would imagine that Joseph is going through the same thing.

I don't know how you're getting any sleep over there. Things are mellowing out here, but I can't imagine how you're doing it. VERY cute pictures.

Cheryl said...

They are such beautiful babies! Just like their sisters!

Hope you are getting some rest now and then. So glad Lisa's mom is there to help. It is busy, but I just read the comment about your friend with 2 boys, triplets and twins. Wow. Puts me to shame.

See you can ALWAYS find someone who gets less sleep than you.

Hope that makes it seems a bit easier. Maybe...

Miss you!!
