5 Months Old!

I can't believe the girls are 5 months old already. This time has flown by! They are getting so big and chunky! They are not the little preemies that I had back in April anymore.

We are so super busy it is not even funny! I am now back to work full time and things are finally getting into a routine. They girls are doing excellent at Baby School. They did get their first cold after the first week of school - of course! Aubrey still is fighting her cough but things are getting better daily. I am finding it very hard to teach 20 5-year olds at school, then pick up my 2 girlies, then cook dinner, then do laundry, etc. Luckily, Jeff is here and willing to pitch in whenever I need him. But, I DO NOT allow him to cook. I do not feel like having Macaroni and Cheese nightly, icky!

Today we got called back to Baby School 2 hours after Jeff dropped them off. He watched them until I could get home at 11:15. Adison had a little fever (from teething) yesterday when Jeff picked her up and they forgot to tell us that she could not return until 24 hours after the fever. So, I came home and of course they slept ALL day other than their one feeding! I got so much done - I changed out their closet, did all the laundry, etc! I need days like this monthly!!!! I went through their clothes and took out all the ones that are too small now. We are going to take their preemie clothes to the NICU they were at. I know they would love to use them! We are now trying to decide what to do with the other ones. Do we save them for more babies????

Here are some pictures from tonight. The white sleeper on the right is the girls first outfit that they wore in the NICU. They were actually really big on them... Notice how big the girlies are now!!!

Here is Aubrey after her bath

Here is Adison after her bath, I guess she wants to show off her muscles too!

We have been working really hard on Tummy Time also, check out this picture

Don't forget that Auntie Linda has Mondays and Tuesdays off if you need a sitter. Even last minute! She would LOVE it!
