firsts...

i wanted to blog quickly this morning before we left for the weekend. it will be our first weekend away and we are excited to be going up to the cabin with grandma and grandpa. its amazing how much stuff i have to pack anticipating a whole weekend away. last night i said to dave "is 80 diapers enough?"
we have had a good week - many firsts.. first doctor appointment which went well she was happy with how much weight they are gaining. noah weighs 9lbs2oz and ari weighs 9lbs. little porkers. she wasn't too concerned with ari's hernia and told me what to look for if it should take a turn for the worse. its huge but not painful for him. they both are awake alot more and staring at me and SMILING!! oh my what a feeling when they gaze up at you with these goofy little smiles. i love it!
dave and i were looking through my birth pictures (our midwife was allowed to take crazy pictures of the c-section) anyways we came across this picture taken a minute before we walked into the operating room. scary - remember i had been in the hospital for 4 days already which doesn't do much for your looks (or hair ugg)... enjoy. i will post when we get back... love to you all.

that's a great pic!! it was so nice talking to you last night! I forgot to ask you about skype. I downloaded it because Dave said you had it, and I added you (or at least I think it's you). Are you guys on it usually?
