Seven weeks





Tomorrow the babies will be seven weeks old. I meant to stay on top of pictures, posting new ones every Thursday to mark their weekly growth, but that hasn't happened. Today I will post video instead in hopes to be a day ahead instead of behind.

This morning Elsie has been a bit demanding. We laugh at her because she falls asleep when we hold her, and then when I go to put her down she opens one eye as if to say, "Are you sure you want to do that?" Then, sure enough, she cries. This has dubbed her the nick-name, "baby one-eye." Elias is a true Mr. Cool. He still is pretty laid back. The only time he really gets upset is when he is hungry. They both are still eating every two hours.

Of course I had to also post a video of Miss Emily. She is doing her "dance moves" in one of her favorite dress-up outfits: cowboy vest (though it is backwards, don't try to tell her that. She INSISTS the ties go in the back!) cowgirl skirt, and a Madeline hat with matching wig. I think she gets her sense of style from her Aunt Mindy!

Many they are all so cute! I love the Ti Chi movement of the arms, I think I'll miss that the most when our babies grow and develop.

I can see both you and Scott in those babies faces. Man they are too cute!!!! I wish I could hold them.

I want to hold each of my beauties! Grandpa Paul & I call them the three E's!
I can almost smell the baby powder and lotion when they cuddle! I miss you all more and more each day. Kisses to all, including mom & dad...

Our girls will be bffs! Kennedy will be sound asleep in my bed or arms. As soon as I lay her down one eye pops open (pirate eye) then the other. She gives a test squeak then starts whining...then crying.... Every night the same thing.

"a test squeak" - That is so Elsie! That is exactly what she does! Too funny!

I kept waiting and waiting for Elsie to say something... That might be the longest I have ever seen her on her back without at least a hhhhhhnnnnnnnhhhhhh. I'm so glad she delivered at the end there!

Has your mom seen these? I bet not, as she has not yet called for a ride from the airport. :)
