Almost 6 months old (3 months gestational age)

sweet little sleepers

Relaxing on the boppies.

On September 20, there will be a reunion of the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital NICU patients and their families. It is an annual event. The Hoff Family is excited to have a chance to visit with the wonderful staff at Stanford and show them how the twins have grown. A great event to look forward to.

I am beginning to think that they might be the most photographed babies ever. I simply can't help myself. Love to all of you.

Thank you for your continued prayers and interest in our family.

I love the expressions on their faces. Blessings abound.

A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer,
bankrolls smaller, homes happier, clothers shabbier and the
future worth living for.

Wherever we go, whatever we do
We're going to go through it together
We may not go far, but sure as a star
Wherever we are, it's together.

Taking Turns

Pops, Oscar, Katie and the twins are checking the progress of the new house.
Olivia plus sunscreen and hat.

Clara is ready to go.

I am ready.

On our walking field trip, Clara cried all the way there and Olivia cried all the way home. Oscar is dog tired. We did get to go in the house and see the progress being made. September 24Th is moving day, hopefully.
Katie goes back to work tomorrow. Please keep everyone in your prayers, it is going to be difficult for everyone.
