Introducing Oliver and Iris

As many of you know (or may have guessed), I've been absent from the blogosphere because the twins arrived!

Oliver Andrew and Iris Joy were born on June 19th at 10:44pm and 10:45pm, respectively.  Oliver weighed a whopping 7 lb 10 oz and Iris weighed a respectable 6 lb 13 oz.  They were both 20 inches long.  

I am so thankful (despite my extreme discomfort) that I was able to carry them to 38 weeks and that they were big, healthy babies.  

Oliver is solid.  He is eating and growing like a weed.  He is always moving and flailing and trying to go somewhere.  He is a pretty content baby except for when he is hungry.

Iris is more petite and the sweetest little thing.  She is overall a fussier baby and she will let you know as soon as her diaper needs to be changed.  She is a lady after all.  

And just in case you were wondering where their loyalties lie as football season approaches...

They will be two months old next week!  We are establishing somewhat of a schedule and some daily routines around here but they are babies and are still unpredictable little things.
