twins are EXHAUSTING but the VERY BEST!

okay these are 2 decent photos of me..... but i blame good filters and good lighting for my decency because most times i'm sweating, my hair is a disheveled mess and the bags under my eyes are HUGE! so don't be fooled by 2 decent pictures. i should point out i'm blogging while exhausted but it's therapeutic so i'm gonna babble on a bit more.......

ahhh, family cuddle time and daddy/daughter naps and open eyes and pursed lips. these girls melt us. we've started the sleep schedule, from the book "Healthy Sleep Habits, Healthy Twins", and so far, so good:) the semblance of a schedule is what keeps me from going insane:)
(clockwise from upper left-hand corner)
i LOVE when the girls smile in their sleep. i was super pumped to have caught the moment with my iPhone:) we've been letting the girls cuddle a few times a day. they hold hands and put their arms in each others faces but it never seems to bother the other. i love how much they enjoy each others company. more baby feet!!! and lastly, Caroline was loving on ms. Lucy. and though half her face is covered i still love her opened eyes.
okay, it's way past bedtime, but i did nap for a long time today, so i'm done with this update.
Twins! i can't believe i have them
i cannot believe how much i ADORE them
xox, rachel


  1. Such precious photos, Rachel! And so adorable that they're cuddling each day. I bet they're used to the hands in the face because they were very close in the womb.. it's been like that their whole lives. :) Do you know if they're fraternal or identical?

  2. Very precious photos! They are the sweetest!
