With much help from Aaron and my friends that rough week is now complete! It was a product of the flu and sleepiness. Sabrina is still a Mama's girl which makes things a tad complicated, but I find if I fill her with lots of food she is happier! They do play on their own without me around... Sabrina just lets the world know when I leave the room. As they were playing this morning I watched Bina as I cleaned the kitchen and she looks back occasionally to make sure I am still there. I have heard she will grow out of this by 1 year. Only 6 more months to go:) Hahahahaha!!! Sophia does the same but not to the same magnitude. She is a bully taking toys away from Bina all the time. Actually, Bina is a bully too... just depends on who decides to do it first! It is funny to watch! They are both well loved and happy babies. The boys are doing better too! Their health is back and the weather is getting nicer which will allow us to play outside much more! I can not wait for day light savings in March!!! Thank you to all my buddies who have helped. Tana... I look forward to our Thursday!!! Blessings to all!

There is a reason I have not posted in a while. I have taken pics, the girls have done so many new and wonderful things. today they both used their thumbs and index fingers to pick up donuts:) Sophia is also crawling forward. Have not caught it on tape yet, but i will. BUT... I am finding that having twins is really hard. I keep waiting for the next stage to think that it will get easier... which it does... but then there is something else very difficult in the next stage that I did not expect. What I am dealing with and having a hard time with right now is jealousy between all the kids. Sophia loves being in my lap and Bina cries. I hold Bina and Sophia cries. Then Alex wants my attention and is tired of hearing, "When I am done with the girls." (which I am never done with) and then Tyler is asked to help and take care of Alex so much he feels overwhlemed at times. My closest buddies have come to my rescue and have taken such good care of me. Aaron let me sleep in even after a full night of work. Natividad took all 4 kids with her mom for the night so I could start a Bible study for the first time since all the complications with the pregnancy, Betsy took the girls today so I could spend one on one time with the boys (and I am still haning out at her place so she can help with the girls). Tonight Audra is also coming to my rescue in some way shape or form. I am not sure yet what I need, but I am in need! After having a great talk with Aaron I realized the kids are prolly feeling the affect from the sickness we have all had, but still it is all so overwhelming. I usually write positives and great things and realized I have not written much and this is why. Everyone is now getting healthier and happier, so I am sure next week will be different! I will be connecting with a twins group soon to help with some things. Maybe there is an easy solution I don't know of because I do not have experience with twins. I will keep you posted!

As of Wednesday the girls weights are...
Sophia: 13lbs 9.8oz and Sabrina 14lbs 4.5 oz!
Sophia is def. catching up!
They are both making raspberries. Bina is saying A- dun, Ba-ba, Da-da, Pa-pa, Tah and H-ot!
She doesn't know what she is saying for sure but she is getting the hang of it!
A-dun is All Done. She does say this when she is done with a bottle.
Last night she said Ba-ba after seeing her bottle.
And I started teaching her Pa-pa when she hears my dad's voice on the phone. Same with Da-da for Aaron. We started to hear some Ma-ma but not quite yet.
Sophia talks and makes noises, but not as clear as Bina. This is the only area where they are different. Other than that they are doing all the same things... as if they were 31 weeks=almost 8 months. They are acting their corrected ages... which means they are acting 2-3 month ahead!!!!! COOL HUH???
