I graduated from Florida Atlantic University today with my MFA in creative writing. At least I think I graduated today, because I didn't walk and I really have no physical proof that I graduated until I get the diploma in the mail in about six weeks.
I don't think I missed out on anything by not walking. I was home with these two today!

And Kerrick was trying to eat Cullen AGAIN!

Here are the boys in their new jungle gym. Cullen really loves it and Kerrick just likes to look at himself in the mirror. I wonder if this is a sign of things to come...

Kerrick's the one with the binky. He loves his pacifier, while Cullen could care less.

Caught in the act...

The boys had a play date today with Rylin. Here's what transpired:

Cullen and Kerrick are doing really well and have had some real adventures lately. Last Thursday, they schlepped all over campus with me to finish necessary paperwork for my thesis and graduation. Then, on Friday, we went to Glades Day School to see everyone. Kerrick even attended psychology class! On Saturday, we went to a friend's birthday party and today was a doctor's appointment for me and a play date for the boys. Whew! We'll probably just hang in for the next couple of days. I have some writing I want to do and we should probably start packing...

As the moving date gets closer, I'm getting bummed. It's really bittersweet: we've made some great friends down here and are truly going to miss everyone, but we want so many friends and family back home to be an integral part of the boys' lives, too.

It won't be an easy move, logistically or emotionally.

Baby Bunnies

I couldn't resist...

One month update

It was four weeks ago today that the boys arrived. They hit a growth spurt last week and finally surpassed their birth weights, so we don't have to go to the doctor again for another month. Cullen weighed in at 7 lbs. 13 oz. and Kerrick was 7 lbs. 11 oz.

They boys also had their first friend over last night. Rylin is two weeks older than Kerrick and Cullen and I think she was a little overwhelmed by the boys.
We are doing great and getting out more. We've also set a loose schedule and are trying to follow it; therefore we're sleeping a little better these days. I like that they are staying awake for longer periods and are more alert. Sometimes I push their little Boppy pillows together and let them kick each other's feet. They seem to really like that.
The twin thing, I've discovered, is not half as demanding as I thought it would be. But, then again, I don't know what it's like to only have one baby...
