first off, i suck. ive been reading but not really posting, and thats pretty uncool.

huge congrats to angelina on her twins, they're soooo super adorable! and i cant wait for updates on 2themoonx2. i bet i missed other stuff--- i already said it, i suck!


anyway, this is a good update. dar is home with us now, since his bili levels came way down and his weight went back up a bit. he was 6lbs 7oz at birth, bottomed out at 5lbs 10 oz, and was back up to 5lbs 15.8oz by the time we left NICU. we had a follow up pediatrician appointment, and he's even up a bit more-- 6lbs 3oz! hes reluctant to wake up/stay awake for night feedings, but he must be getting enough calories anyway.


right now im stressing over 1) my mom's move-- a truck is coming today! and 2) birth announcements-- they need to match harvey's in terms of awesome-ness, so its proving a challenge. darwin's kind of a model, though, so maybe i'll run a zoolander angle? lol


love you guys, sorry ive been silent. im still trying to keep up and have been thinking about you all! hope to be able to check in again soon!

Don't worry about it, we'll all go through times we won't be posting much, it's normal with new babies at home! Glad things are going pretty well now though! Thanks for the update

I'm so glad to hear a good update! You've got a lot going on now, don't worry about not posting. Not that we don't miss you (and everyone with new babies) but you all definitely have lots on your plates and it makes sense you're a bit busy!

harvey is doing well with darwin- hes confused though. i dont know if he knows what to make of him, but hes still kinda fascinated by this tiny little creature. he pets him, like he pets our dogs, and i catch him on his tip toes at the side of the pack n play once in a while, trying to see the baby sleeping.

get this- dar is nine days old? he lost his umbilical cord on day five. and the rest sounds like bragging, but its more fascination with how fast things are normalizing-- my postpartum bleeding is basically over already, and ive lost half my pregnancy weight. im down 19 lbs today, and its certainly not from dieting (unless you count eating LOTS of pie as dieting.)

You sound amazing, so glad you are home and recovering so quickly. Harv sounds like a super big bro already and how cute it must seeing that little face peek over at his baby brother. Take tons of pictures! I've seen two things with Ben Stiller this week (after a looong absence), Zoolander would be pretty awesome for an announcement.

I really love this update.
LOL, Harvey sounds like me around babies... "What do I do with it now?" *Pat pat*

Whenever you finish the announcements and have time, we'd love to see a copy! They sound like they are going to be really good. I must admit, I'd forgotten birth announcements were a thing... Gotta add that to the to-do list.

i took more pictures of him yesterday-- i finally bought some preemie onesies for him to wear, so he looks less lost in clothing. but, i got a shot of him in a great punk rock pose, somehow. so i think im going to make the announcement a concert poster. lol

Everything sounds great! Can't wait to see that announcement! As far as your frequency of posting, I don't think anyone here faults you. I know once I've let you ladies know that baby girl has been born, you probably won't see me at all for 2 or 3 days. I'll be too busy trying not to break my child. Lol

i'm really crazy about protecting the boys' privacy, so i wont be posting a pic of darwin online. im sorry!!

but.... i'm ok with posting this *piece* of the (not posed!) picture i used for the announcement, since it's kind of hilarious.





he's 12 days old and already such a punk. he's makin' his momma soooo proud!!!
