The Girls are 2 months old!!

So I’ve decided to start blogging primarily to update our families and friends who live many miles away. Also, I think it will be a really fun way to document the lives of our beautiful twin girls.

So first a little bit about how Justin & I have arrived at this point in our lives. I met Justin in 2003 in Wichita, Kansas. Just a few short months later I moved to Arizona to go to graduate school. We survived a long distance relationship for about a year, before Justin moved to Phoenix. We married in March 2008 and in November of 2008 we were pregnant!!!!

In December we received quite possibly the biggest shock of our lives…we would be having twins!!! It totally took us by suprise, especially since we found out the news in Kansas while visiting our families. Strangely enough our Dr. in Phoenix had told us that there was only 1 baby. Once we got over the initial shock, we couldn’t have been more excited. We knew it would be a lot of work, but we felt extremely blessed….We welcomed our little baby girls, Ellie Grace & Audrie Lee on June 16th, 2009. More on their entrance into the world in later posts.

The girls are now 8 weeks old. It has been a bit of a blur…much harder than I imagined but we have our shining moments. They both have already rolled over. In fact, Ellie rolled over the first week home from the hospital. She is tiny, but feisty. The doctor always comments on how strong she is. They are sleeping 4-5 hours at night, which is pretty good considering technically they are 2 weeks old adjusted, since they were born at 34 weeks. We are trying to enjoy every moment as times goes by so quickly. They are certainly giving us a run for our money…but it’s worth every minute.
