I got a couple things done this morning on my list like make breakfast. While on that subject I have to say that I made some pancakes with flax meal, coconut flour, and a lot of eggs that turned out not to bad. I will make them again.
Then I had to go out to Heather and Dan’s to babysit. Dusty and David couldn’t do their paint job because it was raining, so they came with me. Dusty had to fix the two upstairs toilets. Grandpa David had to put together the girls new toy.
Becca really like it.
I was downstairs doing a little cleaning with the help of Kate.
The girls were so good today that I got a lot done.
That means I didn’t get much done on my checklist, but it was worth it to spend time with my two little girls.
Yes today was weigh in day. I lost 8lbs and David lost 6.5lbs. We are both chuffed. I guess so far the diet is working. Today it went good. We had a blueberry, avocado smoothie for breakfast, brisket for lunch and we were good at the concert and had burger with no bun. Liking our life change so far.
We went out to Eagle River to babysit our girls for Dan. This is how grandma and grandpa babysit.
Let sleeping babies lie. Just can’t stop taking photos of them.
Dan had a concert, so he headed to it after he showed a house. We waited for Heather to come home and we got babies ready, so we could head to the concert. Helped Heather get her girls in the car then we all headed out. The jazz band had already started. Dan had several solo’s.
They sounded great. Good time was had by all. We had a wonderful day.
So we got home yesterday and today we watched our granddaughters for a few hours. My daughter knew we would watch them so our Son in law could do some work because we had not seen them for 5 weeks. David and I couldn’t get over the fact that they each have started to get fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff t their own personality already. Rebecca is going to be the thinker we think. Katharinelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
This is what happens when you try to blog after a few beers, a shot of whiskey and jet lag. I kept falling asleep with my fingers on the key. I gave up and figured I would start again this morning.
As I was saying Rebecca is going to be the thinker. She is the smaller of the twins but doesn’t miss a thing. She is always looking and moving. David thinks her first words will be a sentence.
Katharine right now is the one that wants all the attention. She has always been the better eater and you can tell because she is catching up to her age faster than her little sister.
They were born 7 weeks early but they were healthy. They were never on oxygen. Katharine weighed 3lb7oz and Rebecca weighed 3lb2oz. They needed to learn how to suckle and weigh over 4lbs to get out of the hospital. They both left together after a month. Heather was only giving them breast milk but now she is having trouble keeping up, so they are having to get a little formula.
Heather just told me they went in for their 4 month check up and Katharine weighed 11lb2oz and Rebecca weighed 9lb7oz.
This is the girls when we left.
These are the photos that Heather sent me while we were gone to butter me up before she asked if I could watch the girls once a week when we got home. They don’t seem to be able to get anything done. Can’t imagine why. Let’s see they are raising twins, Heather is the CEO of the largest manufacturer in Alaska and Dan in trying to run his real estate business. So now Grandma and Grandpa are back and we can help out when needed.
These are the pictures that I took while we had them yesterday. They really are good babies. They fuss if they are hungry or fighting sleep. They are girls and are afraid they are going to miss something if they are sleeping. But to their surprise Grandma knew how to get them to sleep after raising 5 children and the 10 grandchildren before they were born.
If you can’t tell we are very proud of our little girls and will enjoy watching them grow up.
