Big Brother Says

Monster and Miss A

Monster and Miss A

Since this blog has been a little light on the Monster man lately, it’s time to correct that and what better way to do that than by sharing some astute observations from the boy this blog is named for…

When visiting us for the first time in the hospital after the girls were born:
Monster: looks at my stomachMommy, is there still a baby growing in your belly?
Me: no, it’s just going to take some time to get smaller.
Upon arriving home from the hospital:
Monster: Is that as small as your belly is going to get?

While holding his sister for the first time.
Monster: Why are her feet so small?

While playing firefighter
Monster: I used to be a junior firefighter but now I’m the chief. The girls can be my junior firefighters now. (He then proceeds to place his firefighter hat on one of the girls, causing her to cry.) Don’t cry baby – you’re a junior firefighter now.

when asked why he put a pine cone and one very crumpled dry leaf in Aunt H’s bed
Monster: Well I had to put it somewhere.

Yelled out the front door at 9:30am on a Saturday
Monster: I’m thirsty for a beer!

They’re Here!

The twins finally made their debut on Monday, Oct 6th! Much to my surprise, they are girls (I was sure we were having boys).

Miss Audrey Lily weighed in at 7 lbs and Miss Juliet Lourdes weighed in at 6 lbs, 11 oz. They look an awful lot alike right now – we are actually not sure if they are fraternal or identical, so Audrey had her first pedicure so they wouldn’t get mixed up for now. 😉

Monster is loving being a big brother, and has been really helpful with the girls. He likes to help change diapers, although he has declared their umbilical cord stumps to “gross.”
