Double Trouble!

Sometimes when they get hungry they try to eat eachother

Ila is not so much a fan of the whole bathing thing
Fae doesn't mind baths so much

Man! Trying to keep up with two babies is becoming quite the feat. We are changing diapers, feeding, burping like crazy! We can hardly keep up! It’s pretty amazing they can both sleep right through each others crying.

Ila and Fae are doing so well and have already gained back their birth weights plus more. The Dr. says they’re gaining weight like gang busters! Ila is still our little peanut she seems so little compared to Fae but she’ll catch up sooner or later.

Fae is doing great and at one week and one day old has taught herself to roll over! We were doing a little tummy time and she hated it so much she decided to turn herself right over. Ezra and I could hardly believe our eyes. That must be some kind of record! Lol

It is so fun to see their little personalities come out. And even though I feel like all I ever do is feed babies and take naps I am loving being Mommy. I just can’t believe these two beautiful little humans are mine to keep.

The twins have arrived!

Final Belly Picture
Fae Lina Roper 6lbs 6oz, 18 1/2 inches, 7:31am Ila Jane Roper 5lbs 3oz, 18 1/2 inches, 7:32am

Twins and twins!

After 32 hours of labor and 4 1/2 hours of pushing, Fae's heart rate went way up so we ended up with a c-section! Let me just say- I definitly got the WHOLE experience!

We are just so happy to have two healthy beautiful baby girls. All the nurses were so surprised they didn't get sent to the nicu like most twins, we are so blessed.

Ezra and I are definitely in over our heads trying to take care of two babies but we wouldn't have it any other way!

No more watermelon please!

NO-Karlie is not pregnant! This is how she walked in the house after a trip to Costco.
YES-My belly has an uncanny resemblance to a watermelon (but weighs more).
YES-I wear this shirt a lot (it still fits okay)
YES-I am STILL pregnant! Grrrrrrr! I went to the Dr's yesterday and all the nurses were like "I thought we weren't going to see you again." I was like "yeah, you weren't supposed to." Then the Dr said that my belly measures 45 centimeters (huge) and said that I must be miserable. I was like "yeah I'm getting there."

So listen here little ones: "Over 50% of twins make their arrival by week 37--YOUR LEASE IS UP, AND THE RENT IS DUE! I know I've made you a very comfortable home for the last 8 1/2 months but I'm done! The sooner you come the less trouble you will be in when you are born. Love Mom

Just for fun here are baby pictures of Ezra and I.
