Noah lovin'

Has it really been 7 weeks since delivery? Sometimes it feels like forever ago, sometimes we feel like Noah is still a newborn! He's been doing well, he has quite a bit of reflux and colic. Some nights we get some sleep, others...well, thank goodness for coffee. No matter how tired we are, though, he brings smiles and laughter to our daily lives, and we are absolutely in love with this little man.

We found a great book online this week, called "Always My Twin" by Valerie Samuels. It's a book about being a surviving twin. We think it is very important for Noah to always know about Charlie, and know what a brave little soldier he was. We've also started to sort of get into a routine, somewhat, now that we are settled back at home. The next step, Mina begins the job hunt as an RN which is a little difficult at the time. Financially, because we are living with Josh's parents, it isn't completely necessary however, we'd like to work on what our primary goal of moving here was - saving to buy ourselves a house! So hopefully Mina will be able to find something soon. She'd love to go back to where she worked before, and hopefully it will work out!

Lastly, our friend and amazing photographer Janete came to take pictures of our little munchkin last weekend. She did such an incredible job, we can't thank her enough. Thanks Janete!!! Here they are...Mr. Noah, 7 weeks old, cutest baby ever (and we're pretty sure he knows it):


  1. I just love those pictures! He is so handsome. You guys are always in my prayers. Blessings to your sweet family.

  2. what a GREAT idea about the book for noah!!! i love it :) and it's always important to remember that you will always be a mom (dad) of twins too!

    i'm crossing my fingers that noah's colic doesn't last very long! i remember that cora had what i call a "mini" colicy stage that only lasted 4 weeks! every night (for 4 weeks) she SCREAMED at the top of her lungs from 11pm til 4am. i thought that she would wear herself out at some point...but NOOOOO...none stop screaming for 5 hrs straight.
