Happy Birthday Aunt Sarah!

Tomorrow is my oldest sister Sarah's Birthday! The Twins wanted to wish their Aunt Sarah a very special Birthday so here it is...
The girls put on their cutest outfit (that they fit in) for this picture. These outfits are actually "Premmie" size and look how big they are on them. The tag says up to 5 lbs. As of Sunday Abby weighs 6 lbs. 11 1/2 oz. and as of Saturday Chloe weighs 5 lbs. 9 1/2 oz. Notice how Chloe's eyes are actually open for this picture and Abby's are shut. It is usually the other way around.

Happy Grandparents Day...a few days late

I wanted to wish the new grandparents a "Happy Grandparents Day", even if it is a few days late.

*Here is a picture of Grandma and Grandpa Knupke with Abby on Sunday, September 7th.

Abigail is officially home! She came home on Thursday, September 4th and has been doing great since. Breastfeeding has been demanding but definitely worthwhile! I have had to supplement by offering her a bottle after each feeding to ensure she continues to gain weight. I am going to continue this with both girls since exclusively breastfeeding two girls is really hard. Abby has been a great baby thus far, she only cries when she is hungry or has gas. Chloe gets to come home tomorrow-Thursday, September 11th. We will be bringing her home on a monitor for her Brady's (dips in her heartrate). I am extremely happy to be bringing her home and of course a bit nervous. I am looking forward to learning her personality over the next few days to follow just as I have Abby. My Mom has been staying with us since last Friday and has been an amazing help. Not only does she help out with the baby and the new mom, but the house work too. I'm not sure what we would do without her and her great mother advice. Experience is everything!

Twins Are Really Growing!

I have officially been given the okay from my doctor at my 2 week follow-up appointment to start driving again which I am really excited about. I have my freedom back to go to the hospital whenever I want or to just run to the store if I need to. I spent most of my day at the hospital with the girls yesterday and I can't wait to get them home. I was able to breastfeed both girls yesterday for the first time. It was a bit difficult at first, but soon enough Mommy and both girls will get it with no problem. Both girls have grown leaps and bounds. Joe and I think they look different with every new day. Abigail weighs 5 lbs. 5 oz. and Chloe weighs 4 lbs. 2 oz.

*Chloe and Abigail about a week ago. Both girls have since had their feeding tubes removed!
