One Month Old

Is this a miniature Elena, or a huge zucchini? If you guessed huge zuch, you're right. We pulled this out of the garden the other day to make Steve some zucchini bread with the last of our crop, and couldn't believe that it was almost the same size as our big girl. And big she and Clara both are. They are now weighing in at 7 lbs. 1 oz (Clara) and 7 lbs 8 1/2 oz (Elena). They are growing out of their preemie clothes, and almost fit into the 0-3 month size!

Although they still aren't sleeping very much at night, the girls are starting to be awake during the day for more extended periods of time. We're trying to figure out what is most fun for one month old girls to do (any hints are very appreciated!). We do a lot of carrying around to look at things, or as in this picture, lounging on Mom, which keeps everyone happy.

We also continue to find the little gym indispensable. There's a little more "grab your sister" going on now that they are getting bigger and are each taking up more of the gym. We're not really sure what to do about that, since they love to kick and stretch. So far, they aren't hurting each other, but you can see here that Clara isn't thrilled at Elena's grabs.

Although we don't sleep in the same bed at night, we've had some fun cuddling the babies while we're having family nap time whenever we can catch it during the day. Here, Christina and Elena enjoy snuggling up together, snug as two bugs.
