First two weeks

I can't believe Max and Claire are already two weeks old! (17 days to be exact) As of last Thursday they were both weighing in at 5lbs 14oz.  Max's body temp is finally staying over 97! That makes Mommy happy :) They have been very busy sleeping, visiting, shopping and riding in their new Honda Odyssey!

Mom stayed with us last Tuesday -Saturday and was very busy working on decorations for their rooms and traveled with us to Babies R Us and to meet their Great Grandfather, Papa!

Claire's initials
She made Max's more masculine :)
 Didn't she do a fabulous job?!

Trying our new sling while shopping at Babies R Us

Papa loved holding them - said it brought joy to his day!

Last Saturday, I met some of my girlfriends at Emily's house for dinner.  Emily had baby Jack earlier in January.  He is so cute! Claire looks itty bitty next to him :)  It was a girl's night so Max stayed home with Daddy!

I look so uncomfortable!

We finally bought the minivan!  We are loving it!  I keep forgetting to take a picture.. maybe tomorrow!

I had a two week check up with Dr. Cousins yesterday to check my incision.  She pulled off the tape and everything was good except one spot. She wasn't happy with how it was stitched back so she put something on it ( I don't remember what it's called, but it burns it)  If it doesn't get better by my six week appointment, she is going to have to cut and sew that spot again. :( ouch!  I have, however, lost 30 lbs!!  Less than 10 to go til I get to my  pre pregnancy weight!  I really need to get back on track and stop eating like crap.  I was hoping to get back to Weight Watchers this week.  I was a lifetime member when I got pregnant so I get to go back for free and have three months to get back to my goal weight.  I would like it to be 5-10 pounds lighter and hope I can do it.  It should help that I am not taking anymore hormones.
My in-laws come on Thursday. They are super excited bc it has been two weeks since they have seen Max and Claire!  They will be blown away with how different they already are!
they have such different personalities!  Max is just like Justin - looks like him and is super laid back, Claire on the other hand is a little diva!

That's about it for now.  Hopefully we'll have our professional pictures up by the weekend!


  1. Girl, you look amazing!! And (again) the babes are so beautiful. :)

  2. You do not look uncomfortable!!! I am still amazed at how great you looked and how you were so comfortable coming out like that!!! Those pictures of their papa brought tears to my eyes!!! We need to get together soon!!
