Well...the boys started solid food! Riley really enjoyed himself, opening his mouth wide and crying if it took me too long to give him another spoonful. He did a good job with getting the cereal off of the spoon and swallowing, too. Ross had a tougher time with the spoon and swallowing, but he laughed the entire time like it was the best game ever invented! I posted some pics so you can see the cutie pies trying to eat. I know the pics aren't that great, but I was trying to feed both babies and take pics at the same time, so forgive me. I'll get better ones soon. The boys had their RSV shots again this week, and their new weights are wonderful! Ross is now 14lbs 15oz and Riley is 15lbs 7oz. That's the first time that there has been less than a pound difference between them! Ross is catching up! I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Thanks to those of you who voted for the boys in the cutest twins photo contest on www.twinsights.com! Because they are so darn cute, the boys were chosen out of hundreds of entries as one of 19 sets of twin "Holiday Honeys." Then, thanks to all of your votes, they won a spot among the top five finalists! They won a Santa Sing-Along DVD and will be recognized on the website next week! The boys are enjoying (sort of....) their first Hanukkah. The first night, Ross was completely exhausted and cried for most of the evening. Then, tonight, Riley was worn out and fussy, so we cut our evening short and came home for a bath and bed. I am grateful that they are ready for bed around the same time each night, but it sure does make special events tough! I can't believe the boys will be 5 months old this Thursday. Time flies when you are having fun!! They'll be starting solid food next weekend, so hopefully I will have some very funny pics to post! Thanks for checking in with us!

Hi, everyone! We had a good weekend, although we did have to make a quick trip to the doctor's Saturday morning because both boys woke up with a cough and a little bit of a rash. But, the doctor said that their lungs sounded great and it was nothing to worry about! They are doing better today and we were able to go out to lunch with our wonderful friend, Carol, who was Riley's nurse in the NICU. We had a fabulous time visiting with her! The boys got weighed at the doctor's, of course, and Ross is now up to 14lbs 1oz and Riley is at 15lbs 1oz. They are really getting big! Check out the new pics I posted. I was playing around with the "sepia" option on my camera and I got some really cute shots of Ross laughing. Riley was in a more pensive mood and I didn't really get too many of him. I'll make sure to catch him next time!
