Happy Father's Day!!

I just wanted to take a second to say Happy Father's Day to all the daddy's out there! This is a special one for Tim because it's his first one! And double-exciting because we are blessed enough to have two special little boys in our lives this year. Tim has been a great dad to the boys, and you can always tell how much he loves them and just loves being with them and playing with them.
Luke - 4 days old

 Logan - 7 days old
Any teeth in there yet??

 These swings are fun!
Getting so big (and we look alot alike here!)
Splashing around in the pool, fishing with Dad!

Also wanted to say thank you to all the other Dad's and Grandpas' in our life!!

Update on the Clouse's!

Hello everyone! Well I know I haven't posted much since 2 weeks before the babies were born, so here's a quick run-down.

October 20th - went into labor at 33 weeks and 2 days
October -21st - gave birth to 2 amazing little boys at 12:17 and 12:18 am, Luke 3 lbs 13 oz, Logan 4 lbs 6oz

November 2nd - took the boys home from the hospital (12 days later), Luke 4 lbs 3 oz, Logan 4 lbs 8 oz
November 10th - 1st doctors visit, Luke 5lbs 2 oz, Logan 5 lbs 5oz
November 21st - 1 month old, L&L love to sleep, eat every 3 hours like clockwork!
November 29 - Growing fast! Luke 7 lbs 8 oz, Logan 7 lbs 10 oz

December 7 - original due date for L&L, sleeping 3 to 5 hours at night, eating 4 oz. every 3 hours
December 21st -  2 months old, and 60 degrees outside!!

January 10th - Luke 11 lbs 2 oz, Logan 11 lbs 11 oz,  eating 4 to 5 oz 6x a day, sleeping 5 to 6 hours every night! Starting to smile :)
January 15th - Baptism at St. Paul's in Westerville
January 21st - 3 months old, sleeping from around 11pm to 5:30 or 6am in the morning!

February 10 - found our hands and started wearing size 2 diapers
February 17th -  Luke 14 lbs 10 oz, Luke 13 lbs 9 oz, starting to giggle and laugh
February 21st - 4 months old! the boys love laying on their playmat, and sitting in the bouncy, vibrating seats

March - really warm - feels like spring! The boys turned 5 months, started grasping objects and eating cereal. Also starting jumping in our jumperoo toys. Logan LOVES to jump, Luke likes to play with the toys. By the end of March, Luke weighs over 14 lbs, and Logan weighs over 15 lbs. The boys are also starting to push up when they are on their tummies and look around. They really like to stand up (with help of course!)

April -  6 months old! Not as warm as March :(, but still sleeping pretty good, taking longer naps and staying away more now. Eating 5 to 6 x/day and we started eating baby food this month, the really liked carrots! They also started rolling over this month. Logan went from his back to belly first and once he figured it out, he started doing it ALOT!  Luke was not quite as motivated, but started rolling from his belly to back first. By the end of April, Logan was 16 lbs 5 oz, and Luke was 15 lbs. The boys also really like to hear themselves talk, and have started screeching and talking alot more.

May - 7 months old this month! Can't believe how big they are getting! It's amazing! With age, the boys aren't sleeping as well, but I think it's partially because they are sometimes growing/hungry and their gums are hurting. (No teeth yet, but I think it's bothering them now...). L&L are happiest in the mornings. They smile and are so happy to see us when we go to get them from their cribs. Some milestones this month have been - big boy baths (in the tub in seats so we don't slip and fall over), they found their feet (Luke loves them!), changed to size 3 diapers, played in the baby pool for the first time outside, started sleeping on our bellies - or at least waking up that way,  starting to sit up on our own with no help! The boys were weighed around their 7 month birthday and Luke was 15 lbs 15 oz, 17 lbs 3 oz.

I'll try to post highlights at least monthly so you can all see how the boys are doing. I'll make sure to post a few pictures too!

(Oh yeah, mom and dad are doing well too!)
