Philip and Samuel

Philip and Samuel were born on today at 2:18pm, about 1 minute apart. Both were 18in long, Philip was 6lb11oz and Samuel was 6lb2oz. Kristin did great, and we are so happy to have everyone recovering well! Both have quite a bit of hair. Nana, Thomas and Andrew made a visit. Andrew thinks we may be hiding another one somewhere, but both boys are excited to have new baby brothers! Dad got to rock Samuel for the first time before saying goodnight after he was swaddled. Here are a few pictures - more coming.

Philip gets a little oxygen after birth and then has a sleep on his tummy.
Samuel opening his eyes, and then getting all comfy in his swaddle.

Baby Shower


My friends threw me a surprise baby shower last weekend - what a fun time! Karen was able to come too and was in on the surprise. We got some very nice things for the boys!

33 - 1/2!

We celebrated Steve's half birthday yesterday with a half cake that the boys helped me make.

Easter!


The Easter bunny came to the NYGustafson house! Here are some photos of the events, including: Dyeing Easter eggs (our first attempt at doing this at home - and we only dropped a few!), Easter baskets - with a few special treats for Steve, and the Easter egg hunt in the backyard, and a short movie where Kristin's huge tummy makes an appearance!

32 Weeks


These photos are getting scarier and scarier! I celebrated the 32 week milestone with my last day of work, and am looking forward to having more time at home to rest and get ready for our new arrivals.

Our next doctor appointment is next week, and if there are any changes we'll be sure to put the word out. Just don't ask me how I'm feeling - you'll get an earful! :)

Sleepy boys



Andrew sleeping on the couch while watching a movie, and Steve and the boys pretending to catch some 'zzz's - also on the couch! It must be the best place in the house for a quick nap.

Underoo boys



Andrew has started the long process of learning to use the potty! Here he is proudly modelling his Elmo pants. It's a work in progress for sure. Good thing he has a big brother to show him the way!

School Photos



Thomas' school photos for this year! We only ended up buying the composite photo (class picture + Thomas solo picture), but will do birthday photos for both boys this summer sometime.

Weekend Happenings


We manage to fill our weekends by accomplishing so little! We've got a long list of to-dos before these babies arrive in 7-9 weeks (hopefully no longer!) We went to a birthday party for one of Andrew's friends, and the host snapped our photo while watching the kids play. Are here are our very own superheros!

Thomas the artist

Thomas is really into artwork and coloring these days. Here are a few of his recent works.

























And a photo of the artiste himself with particularly nice bedhead.

28 weeks


The weeks are really flying by! Here we are at 28 weeks. The babies are weighing in at around 3lbs each. Everything is going well so far, and we're counting the days until Nana and Papa arrive.
