Two Weeks Old

Henry and Hudson Henry and Hudson are doing so well...We're getting the breast feeding thing down. It's not perfect - but it's going better than I expected. I haven't had to use formula since we arrived home from the hospital. These two boys are as sweet as can be...I always find it so amazing how quickly I learn to love a new baby. While I'm pregnant I always worry that I won't have enough love in me to share with a new baby (or two). But it just comes so instantly - such a miracle to love someone so quickly... I'm sure there's a better way to put it - but, hey I'm sleep deprived! Not that I'm complaining - there's nothing like waking up at 5 am to 5 children and a husband snuggled up in bed with me! (It does get rather warm though...)

Anyway...I love them all and I am very blessed. A big warm thank you to all the friends and family who have helped with my big kids, cleaned my house, and brought meals over - what would I do without you??? I'm thankful that the Lord is watching over our family through our thoughtful family and friends. THANKS!!!!

Oh Mandy they are so cute. I love all of these pictures. You honestly amaze me with all that you do. And I am so impressed with the feeding. You go girlfriend! I hope that we will be able to come and see them before we leave, Spencer seems huge now that I look at these pictures of Henry and Hudson! They grow so fast!

As much as I couldn't handle twins, there is just something so sweet about seeing two new babies side by side with their mommy. Makes my heart melt.

Sounds like things are going as smooth as could be with twins:) Hope the nursing continues to get better each day. That can be tough and draining on a mama!! Nursing sounds so simple in a book doesn't it?

You guys have been in my thoughts a lot lately. I need to make some time to come visit and drop a meal off or something!

They are so cute! I have a question... Their hair is straight, will it stay like that? They are so darling. You're so amazing!!!

Congratulations!!!

Hi Mandy~
I haven't checked your blog in a long time and finally did tonight. I have to chime in with all the rest of your family and friends and say that you have such a beautiful family!! All of the pictures of the new babies are so cute, but I have to say that this one with the two of them sleeping with you is one of my favorites! It really makes me miss having babies (mine are now 8 & 5). Time goes by so quickly!
Take care and keep posting those great photos!
Your ebay friend,
Kandi
