Gosh, I can't believe it has taken me so long to post about all the fun goings-on in our world lately. Well, first and foremost--our girls are doing great! Avery is now 5lbs 10 oz, and Matilda is not far behind at 5lbs 6oz! They are actually newborn sized now! Even though they are still tiny they look so huge to us. Also, they have graduated to nursery B--meaning they aren't "intensive" anymore! Babies in nursery B are pretty much only on a little bit of oxygen, or none at all, and receiving feedings by tube still--but that's pretty much it. We are also doing nutritive feeding with them both twice a day. I am so impressed with how well they do for their size. The doctors and nurses have assured us that it's pretty much just a matter of them getting the feeding down before they can come home. Although they are doing great, it still could be a while. As always we are just delighted with their progress! In other fun news, my mom and my brother Eric were able to come out for a quick visit last weekend. It was so fun to have them here!Eric meeting Matilda for the first time

Also, while mom was here, some cute friends in my ward threw me a shower...it was so fun! Thanks Carlee & friends!
Mmm, yummy food! Also, we bit the bullet and bought a mini-van. Unfortunately we couldn't fit two car seats in our little truck so we had to upgrade. We were hoping to get something smaller--kind of a half-step up to a mini-van, but we soon realized that between two car seats and a double stroller we would run out of room for anything else...so... never thought I'd say this, but I am a mini-van mom at age 25 and loving it!
Also, we have been receiving really cute crotchet booties and hats from a friend of Grandma Stutz's and I finally brought them in to the hospital for the girls to wear. Well, we put them on and never laughed so hard! Especially at Matilda... this hat makes her look like a little granny...
