It's an exciting time for the twins.  They took a trip home from the hospital, had their 1-week birthay party on the porch with some neighbors (note the pink and blue cupcakes!), visited Libby (our neighbor and dula) at the follow-up clinic, and still managed to find time to keep Mom and Dad pretty busy!
