free Lily!

Okay, so they're actually both free from their bili lights now, but "free babies!" didn't quite have the same ring to it. It's been so nice to hang out in the living room and not have to just hold and nurse babies back in a semi-darkened bedroom! They definitely look healthier too, and their poo has turned an oh-so-appetizing shade of yellow, which is yet another sign that the bilirubin is gone.

We had a lovely visit from Page and her youngest girl Emma Claire on Monday and Tuesday. Page has three little girls very close together, so I asked her a lot of novice mommy questions. Unfortunately, poor Emma Claire is teething and was feeling kind of puny and clingy while she was here. She did find time to give some of the twins' baby toys and books a test run, and highly approved of them.

We took our first non-mandatory outing with the babies today and went for a walk. Scott was the designated baby-pusher, which allowed me to hover relentlessly and adjust blankets and sunshades every five feet.

In case it wasn't obvious from the first picture, the kids were thoroughly impressed with their new experience:

They're excited. They're just hiding it really well.
