The Amazing Escape Artists!

The other day at bed time I decided to put the girls in gowns instead of footed pjs. One of the first pieces of clothing I had bought them while I was pregnant. They are preemie size but have looked too big to try until now. I put them on and swaddled like I always do. I go into my room and start to get myself ready for a nap before the next feeding. I check our video monitor because I hear a lot of moving around. I see Madelyn first and I see her arms and some shoulder. I walk into their room and this is what I see...

I look over at Kinley and she is getting out of her gown too. (notice they don't even look sleepy at 12 in the morning) I go grab the camera, take some pictures. I watch for a little while and before it's all over Madelyn pretty much gets out of the gown. I figured thats not going to work and change them both and put them back to bed. Ever since that night they seem to really good at getting out of their swaddling!

In other news!

On Sunday we took a picture of me and the girls. I realized that we don't really have any pictures of me and them. How sad is that? I have so many pictures of them and other people but forgot about taking one of us.We took the girls to the doctor today for a weight check. I always dress them up to go to the doctor because that is one of the only times we really leave the house.
Kinley is finally over six pounds. She weighs 6.5 pounds and Madelyn is one oz away seven pounds!!!

How funny....you'll have more and more stories to share as the days go on. I always dressed Thomas and Madelynn in onesies and then swaddled. I do hope all is going well for you...you look great!

I am cracking up because you got the camera out at midnight! It sounds like you are keeping your spirits up and enjoying all the funny moments, whenever they happen.

If you still want to swaddle, give the Miracle Blanket a try. It's pricey, but so awesome. I used it with my twins until they were over 6 months old. It's like a straightjacket swaddle blanket and very hard to wiggle out of.
