Basic news with pics

We've been busy lately with VBS and the twins club picnic along with other daily common life stuff. Noelle has been at VBS learning digital photography for the week. I will post some of her pictures later since they are still on her camera. We had a great time at the twins club picnic with over 400 people in attendance - all families have some version of multiple births and there were soooo many babies there! It has been cold and rainy so we haven't gotten out very much lately - hopefully that will change. Enjoy the pics and new updates will come soon - another doc appt for Annie on Tuesday.

Lookin Good!

I had a doctor's visit and ultrasound today for baby #4. All is good to this point and the placenta is still working very well. Thank you all for your votes in the baby naming poll. While Abigail was the clear winner, we have elected to go off list and allowed Noelle to offer a name. We all really liked it and so, new baby girl will be named

Anna Joy Okrasinski aka Annie

She is currently in the 60th percentile for growth which is great for us and still projecting the same due date. The expected c-section delivery date is Oct 26th. Woo Hoo! Here is a pic of her smiling :) Keep praying and we will keep you all posted. She moved as the pic was taken. Sorry

Doctor visits today!

So I have huge children. Not really a surprise. I thought for sure Eli was over 30 lbs though and he wasn't on the doctor's scale today. Officially at 15 months here are their results:

Eli - 28.3 lbs 34 in (that's 90th and 97th percentiles on US charts - unbelieveable)

Ru - 26.3 lbs 31.5 in (90th and 75th percentiles - can u imagine my little 4 month old 6 lbs ruthie is now in the 90th percentile for weight!!)

Since the kids came home in Nov, they have always been 2 lbs apart. must be a twin thing :) Kids are doing great and only cried for a little while from their shots :(

Noelle did good too and we are now on a more frequent feeding schedule with her for hypoglycemia. She may outgrow it by age 8, but we will see. Otherwise, all is good!

First Haircut!

Eli had his first haircut by Dad today! It was okay at first, then not so fabulous but ended with big smiles and the reward of a bath! Both he and Ru love splashing in the tub! Enjoy the pics!
