Way Back When-esday

Cheryl, at Twinfatuation, always hosts Way back When-esday - where you share a picture (and correlating story if you'd like) of days gone by. I normally don't participate (because I wasn't sure if there really is a "way back when" if it's been less than a year!), but due to a dead camera battery and a charger mixup (our charger is in Michigan and Lucas' parents have a similar dead camera battery and a charger that is here...), I cannot take any new pictures or get any of the existing pictures out of my camera. BUT I do have pictures of Uncle Nic's last visit to see the twins (which I thought would be fitting since we've been featuring adventures from his and Matt's current visit). So I figured I would jump in and participate this week :)
A lot has changed, don't you think?...

Uncle Nic with Allie

Uncle Nic, Allie, Lucas, Ryan

note: Since Allie was Baby A, she was scheduled to be the first to eat at the NICU, which meant that visitors got to hold Allie while we fed Ryan. It was a rare & brief occassion when visitors got to hold him (and if both Lucas and I were there, visitors often only got to watch because our time with them was so precious).

That being said...Uncle Nic gets a rare photo of himself with both babies (I was the only other person to have a photo with both while they were in the NICU). But he did use his last college spring break to come and visit them, so I guess he earned this privilege!

And if you want to see some more adorable duos, check out Way Back When-esday at Twinfatuation!

Were the babies ever that small? Nic is holding them like a pro. He had to be scared but he looks so cool and calm! What great memories for Uncle Nic. And Matt is making a lot of his own. What joy in family!!! Life is good! G-grandma

Oh what fantastic shots! Uncle Nic clearly is a natural at Dual Uncle-dom!

Thank you so much for playing along with Way Back When-esday...hope you will often!
(Sometimes yesterday feels like "Way Back"!)

Kim this is so sweet. Our babies were so helpless and small. Hard to believe they are the same two babies. The camera charger was sent out yesterday 1-6-10, you should have it soon. Thanks for the blog it was interesting and educational at the same time. You don't realize how many multiple births are out there. Love to all. Nana
