Annie & Marcus’s Wedding…late!

Our dear friends, Annie and Marcus, got married on July 7th. We thought we’d have babies by then and not be able to make it, but it all worked out! Despite some rain right up until time for the ceremony, everything worked out well for a beautiful wedding at Red Rocks Trading Post.

Month One

The first month went by pretty quickly! Our babies slept a whole lot the first week home, and it was great. We woke them every 3rd hour to feed them, and I hated my alarm every night. We quit setting the alarm after the first 10 days or so, and the sleep hasn’t come quite as easily. From our wonderful parents helping out, I haven’t had a whole lot of days by myself, but it is quite the challenge! It’s amazing to watch the boys grow so quickly.

Baby Time!

Nearly a month later, I guess it’s high time we posted that we have babies! They were born about 20 minutes apart with Noah first and Luke second (born in the operating room, as is required for twins). It is a wonderful and challenging time so far! Here are some pictures from our first couple of days.

Note: In the operating room photos, Noah is in the swaddle with the footprints on it, and Luke is in the striped one. Noah is in the red car seat; Luke is in the brown one.
