This is why we love having twins...

We had a great weekend in Benton! Boy, you forget the hot and humidity of home until you go back. That is one thing I do not miss about living in Central Arkansas!
Before we heading home Friday, we went to the Doctor for our 6 month checkup and shots. Elliot now weighs in at 11lbs 14ozs and Keaton is at 12lbs 4ozs. Still little squirts (I think we are still in the 5th percentile) but all is well and they are already advanced in development for their age and size. Dr. Cadle said don't be surprised if they are walking in the next few months! She also warned us to start babyproofing the house now so we are going to have to get busy around here! We also got to begin foods so I am sure I will have some good poop stories for you in the near future.
All of the family is doing well. My grandaddy looked great and you can really tell the physical therapy is helping him out. It was also great that Keaton and Elliot got to be with their other great cousins. It was fun seeing all the kids there and watching Keaton & Landon already begin to interact with each other. Before we know it, they will be fighting over the money eggs at Grandmurna's house. Of all the newest "greatgrands", poor Elliot is the only girl! She will just have to wait for her cousins Trae & Tori to come and visit this summer to play with the girls. Then poor Keaton will be in Barbie hell! Sorry I do not have any pictures of all the cousins to share. I was so busy visiting and keeping up with kids that I forgot to take any pics.

There was one pic we snapped this weekend though which will explain the title of this post. At 4 months, we had to separate the kids from sleeping together because they were waking each other up all night long. Once they had their own beds, they immediately began sleeping through the night. But this weekend, being at mom & dad's, we had to bunk the kids up again for the first time. The pic to the right is how we discovered them asleep when we came up to go to bed. I guess they had to be touching to go to sleep. We are so blessed to have twins and I hope they will always be this sweet and loving towards each other (although we did get into a hair pulling contest this morning...LOTS of screaming!). If you are out there and are trying for a baby, pray for twins! There is nothing better!
