Week 3

It's now over 20 days since we brought our little guys home from the hospital and I can't believe how time is flying by!  The boys are definitely growing more and more alike by the day but James and I have managed to tell them apart so far, although occasionally we must admit that we have to do a double take.  Jackson's head is still longer and narrower then Tyler's - the only tell tale difference we have spotted.  We had a fun week and the boys are definitely staying awake more often and growing stronger by the day.  Both of them have managed to figure out how to break out of their swaddles - we are working on some tighter wrapping techniques.  We enjoyed some fashion shows of our new clothes...many still a little too big for us.  We said goodbye to Grammy today after 3 weeks of amazing help looking after all of us.  We will miss her tons!!  And finally, although we don't really recognize that the other brother is there most of the time, there have been a few moments (mostly involving dire hunger) when there may have been a glimmer of recognition.
And for those interested in the stats...over the last 3 weeks (well at least since we got home from the hospital on May 8), our handy dandy ipod app says that we have changed 369 diapers (188 for Tyler, 181 for Jackson - they are neck in neck). Oh my!

(unclear why he decided to leave his arms at his side)
Trying on some new looks...
might need to wait a little while for this one to fit
(doesn't he look like a Bishop?)
Ahh, brotherly love...actually they are just starving and after the shoulder and elbow didn't appear promising, they went for the lips
