Newborn Twin Photos, Vol. 2

31 May

India, Day 18: Matt and Ellen went down to the FRRO yesterday to apply for the babies’ exit visas, the final step before we can leave the country. Matt called to check up on things today and was informed that everything is “in process.” We’re still crossing our fingers for getting out of here on Tuesday, June 4, but there’s always a chance it could take longer than that. We’ve had a good time here, but I think we’re all ready to be home, sleep in our own beds, and let the twins enjoy their nursery for the first time.

In meantime, some more newborn photos. 🙂

Well hello, Henry! The little guy has been awake a bit more often and appears to be a more interested in checking out his surroundings. He’s getting so big so fast that it’s almost alarming.

Daddy Matt, Henry, Julianne, and Ellen on FaceTime with Great-Grandma Dot, 86, in Wilmington, NC. She was so excited to see her great-grandbabies for the first time. Looking forward to Dot getting to hold them soon.

    Congrats Matt and Josh – just found your blog! The babies look adorable and I wish all 4 of you much joy.
    One thing that worked for my kids when on planes was to have a bottle ready for when pressure changes affected them (more landing than take off) – the sucking helped pop ears – and if they dont settle when home, check for ear infections caused by the pressure changes.
    Hope you get to go home soon

    Beautiful babies, handsome daddies. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful loving family. You all bring joy to the world.
    Fingers crossed the Supreme Court does the right thing.

    Gosh, these babes are growing so fast, so cute….here is a tip for air travel too, I used to stuff some cottonballs in my babies ears to help with the change in pressure and getting them to suck on a bottle for takeoff and landing does really help….hope all goes well getting your papers and getting home soon…

    Wishing you such a wonderful life! I’m unsure how I got on this blog today, but appreciate you sharing your journey. I have a daughter adopted from Calcutta. She is the light of my life. So glad you were able to form such a lovely little family. Best Wishes.

    Hi guys just found your blog. A friend of mine from Canada posted your video of you picking your babies up and she said it made he think of us and how it brought her such happy tears. What a beautiful video. It truly brought back such a flood of emotions and amazing memories or our past trips. Congratulations on your gorgeous twins!
