We had some professional photos done recently - here are a few:


We had a great weekend - hung out with the Goldman's, went on a long walk at Dry Creek, and just enjoyed the spring in Colorado.

It's so much fun to see Max & Elliot play with the babies. Hudson just stares at his future playmates.

I am still trying to catch Layla smiling - she is an elusive bugger. Here is the best I could do for now:

grossly normal

We are so relieved that Layla's MRI came back normal. The worst part was passing her to the nurse and kissing her goodbye. We were so scared. But, they took great care of her. When we came back in she was still asleep wrapped in warm blankets (and in her tiny hospital gown) with a hot pack underneath her. She looked so peaceful.
It was a rough night though of her being off her schedule - she ate about every 2- 2 1/2 hrs.
Plus, they expected a grown human to sleep on the tiny twin sized pullout in the room. We defied their odds and D and I both smushed into the bed until I decided to sleep in the chair with little Layla.

Hudson had quite an adventure with Grandma Suzie. I hear he got the oil changed, played with his cousins, napped on the spiderman couch and finished off his night with sushi with the girls. He's soon going to realize how boring his days are just drinking milk with me.

In other news, the babies are smiling more and more at us. It's so exciting to actually see them reacting to us and their surr0undings. Every day they are cuter.

Buddha baby

She wants to smile!

Snuggled in for the morning...

new day

Today I crossed over.

I was anointed a SAHM - I told the company my decision to stay home with my babies. I am so thrilled to spend time with the monkeys but also sad to leave my friends, my work, my career. I keep hearing I will never look back so here goes.

D and I always joke, "these babies are really going to owe us" but truthfully I think I am going to owe them. Today I cleaned out my office, the one that looks out over Pearl Street, natural light streaming in, here is what I thought of:
