An Unexpected Delivery

We had an unexpected delivery on January 20th...the twins were born! David and I are so excited to be an Auntie and an Uncle again. Ashton and Aiden made their entrance into the world two months early, which made us all very nervous. But, we are happy to report they are doing very well!

The boys are at the Children's Hospital in the cities in the NICU, they are off all IV's and oxygen. They call them the "big boys"...weighing it at - Ashton 4lb. 3oz., 18 inches long and Aiden 3lb. 11oz, 17.5 inches long (birth weight/length).

This weekend was a big weekend for the boys...and us, we got to hold them! It was the first time they have been held by anyone else beside mom/dad and nurses! The gramma's were eating it up!

It sure has been fun looking for boy clothing in pairs! We love spoiling the boys! We have been telling Elle all about her new cousins and she is so excited to meet them when they go home!

Now on to our baby...who is 6 months old! Where has the time gone? Elle had her six month appointment and all is well. She loved the paper on the bed while waiting for Dr. Stevenson, we didn't even need toys!

She is weighing in at 15.5lbs and is 25 inches long. She is in the 25% for weight and head circumference and just under 50% for length. We call her our little peanut!

What can our six month old do?

*Roll from front to back and back to front.
*She can sit unassisted.
*Rock on all fours.
*Loves to bounce in her jumperoo.
*Drink out of a sippy cup.

We are always thinking about camping and shopping for the latest and greatest accessories. Well, we found Elle's camping chair and she loves it.

Our Christmas celebration for the Rueber/Kiemel family was a little delayed this year, it was the first weekend that all four families could get together. And of course Grandma spoiled all of the grandchildren! Thanks for the wonderful afternoon Grandma Maureen and Papa Coach.

Jenna and Courtney enjoyed playing with Elle. Not the best picture of Elle, but she really did enjoy the girls!

I think we have a tummy sleeper. For the last week, I have found Elle on her tummy in the morning! She looks so tiny in her big girl crib and yes those are pacifiers. We keep about 6 of them in her crib so she can find one in the middle of the night! :)

Elle has moved from the infant tub to the sink! She loves bath time...but would rather play with the faucet, a Tupperware top than her bath toys! But they are fun to look at when they are all line up! ;)

This picture is too cute for words!

Claire pretend feeding Elle . They are going to be great friends as they grow!

Signs that our baby is getting bigger, she is using a sippy cup after meals! She kind of has the hang of it, but would still prefer a bottle!

The things you do to entertain your children while you are doing house work!

Elle would much rather find her own toy than you picking out a few toys for her to play with.

Elle and Daddy do funny things when they play.

Hope you enjoyed the RaNdOm pictures from the last two weeks!
