Ok, now I'm just spoiled.

So last night the babies slept for 4 hours!!! IN A ROW!!! This is the first time in awhile that they have both stayed asleep for more than a 2 to 3 hour stretch - in fact, David has been running us ragged waking up screaming every hour to 2 hours. We've put so many hours on our rocker, I'm afraid we'll have to trade the poor thing in soon!

So, sweet things had their AM feed, played for awhile with 2 uncles and Momma (my older brother Damon is doing his first (half) Ironman in Austin this weekend. He and Kyle came here last night and left this morning. (Much luck and light speed to Damon - and hang in there with the crazy early hours Kyle!!) So, after playing for a good hour to an hour and half...they TOOK A NAP?! WHAT WHAT?! I was actually able to eat a hot breakfast - uninterrupted. There have been no tantrums (as of this morning) and they have been all smiles. Crazy. I suppose their hellatious growth spurt is coming to an end.

I've read that growth spurts can last up to 2 weeks - and can now attest to it. Please don't misunderstand, I LOVE the fact that they are growing. (Of course I do). But the screaming, eating every hour, spitting up, and eating again, wildness wildness wildness can weigh on a girl a bit and this morning is a much welcomed break in the chaos.

I am trying my hand at putting a video of Mary Louise on You Tube. Will post the link when it is done. I'm not really sure what I'm doing - but if successful, this will be a way for me to give access to some of the longer videos to our friends and family.

In the meantime, here are some of the latest photos...including... one of BOTH babies smiling at the SAME TIME!!!
