Moby wrap, snow day, sweater buddys and more!

The kids are keeping me busy!  Matt went back to work, leaving me to fend for myself.  I knew the day was coming, but it still was a transition to being responsible for both kids by myself!  Good news is, everyone is alive and well!
 Trying out the Peanut Sling. I had this with Micah, but only tried it a few times.  He hated it! On a positive note, Adelie seems to like it, she fell right to sleep!
 Another day I tried the Moby wrap someone made for me. Come to find out I didn't do it quite right, so it will be better next time!  She fell asleep in this too!
 Last Thursday-Snow Day for Matt!  And if he was still working in Watervliet, he would have had 4 by now...

 My cutie pie!
Sorry, I can't seem to rotate my pics...will edit later!

Best friends, mommies and babies!
 Sweater buddys!

2 week update

I can't believe Adelie is two weeks old already.  Adjusting is still taking place at our house.  Micah does like to times. Other times he is especially whiny, clingy, and sensitive.  We will get there, and there will be a time that he doesn't remember life without her!  
 Saturday, Jan 5
 Sunday, Jan 6
 Tuesday, Jan 7-Adelie had her initial check-up at Dr Driscoll's office.  In 6 days, she gained 7 oz!  Dr Driscoll was impressed. Our little girl likes to eat!
 Wednesday, Jan 8

Thursday, Jan 9-Went to Matt's classroom to introduce Adelie to his class, and hung out in the teacher's lounge for a time for the teacher's to get their baby fix.
 Micah is using a hooter hider, he told me he was nursing his frog! 
He will even stop and say "Other side now"

 Micah loves holding his little sister
 Sneak a picture of out Kramer being ridiculous, as usual
 Monday, Jan 14-fireplace fiasco
Micah wanted to build a fire. Two minutes of unsupervised time, and we find him with ashes all over him and all over the carpet-which I had just vacuumed!
 Wednesday, Jan 16- 2 week check-up at Dr Driscoll's: Adelie weighs 7 lb 2 oz! That is a 13 oz gain from birth weight (initially most newborns lose weight, and they like to see them back to their birth weight by 2 weeks!). She is now 20in and head circumference is 14in.  She is riding along the 20-25% curve (Micah has never made it past 15%!)  Dr says she is looking great!
 Thursday, Jan 17-Micah wanted to hold Adelie again
She started crying, and suddenly Micah didn't want anything to do with her! Really have to watch him with her still, but I think he is getting the hang of the big brother role!

 Her first bow :)
 Friday 2:30pm-ready to go home!!

 I'm ready mom!

Kramer is very intrigued...Matt said he didn't know we had twins! He wants to be the baby again

 Milk coma
 Micah wanted to help feed her.  I had just pumped and she decided she was hungry again. She is a little eater!  Micah is getting used to me breastfeeding her. He has been talking about more anatomical terms than necessary in we are teaching him that Mommy is nursing Adelie
 These got a little out of order-Friday going home
Still adjusting, but we are so happy!
