All Clean and Cute!

We took a few photos of the babies today after their baths. Hey, they don’t stay clean for long, so we thought we’d take advantage of it! We also weighed them before their baths, and can’t believe how quickly they are growing!

Caleb: 8 lbs. 10 ½ oz.



 


Abby: 7 lbs. 5 ½ oz.



 


Elijah: 8 lbs. 8 ½ oz.



 


Ellie: 6 lbs. ½ oz.




The monogramed onesies were made by Judy. She was my math tutor in high school and has become a close friend since we graduated. I love that she put their names on them in their colors!

The shoes were crocheted by my friend Tina. She really ought to set up an Etsy store! My word! So cute! Here’s a close up of the little embellishments that each shoe has!



The blankets were made by a very sweet young lady who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet. Vivian is 10 years old and heard about our blog through Judy. She saved her money, bought the material, and made the blankets herself. So beautiful and thoughtful! The babies love them!

 


Could we be identical twins??




We brought the boys home, put them next to each other, and realized that they look a lot alike. Whoa. So much so that when a couple of their NICU nurses who took care of them since they were born stopped by to visit them last week, they got them mixed up! I even have a hard time telling them apart sometimes. Sean and I finally decided that some painted toenails were in order. Each of the boys now have their big toenails colored to help us keep them straight. I think we will probably give them a few years, but if they still look alike, we will probably have the twin test done to see if they are identicals. Apparently, even though they each had their own sacs in utero, they could still be identicals if the egg split early enough. Who knew!

 


The Girls!

    Rebecca & Sean u certainly seem to be doing so well for having your hands so full! The babies have grown so quickly & are so beautiful! I had double surgery on May 16th & just got my stitches out today & my cast came off today. The Doctor said I have about 6 months of physical therapy but hopefully then I will be able to help in some way. Your entire family is a miracle blessed by God! With love! Sharri Adkins

  15. We used to tell our twin boys apart by the top curve of their right ears. One was rounded, the other had more of a straight line. We also did the color thing, red for one, blue or green for the other. To this day we don't know if they are identical or not, they too had separate sacs, but even some relatives can't always tell them apart. How fun. Relax and enjoy these memorable days! I haven't posted before but have been praying for you since your mom sent me the link to this blog.

  18. It's hard to believe how much they've grown. How handsome and beautiful they are!! Thanks for taking the pics to let us all see and taking the time to fill us in on their progress. I'll bet it's a real challenge taking them all to the doctor's office. Continuing to pray for you ALL! God bless.
