are part of our missing package (yup, still missing!). They are what attaches the slats of our bed to the frame, and without these, the rest of the bed frame is pretty much useless! Luckily, I managed to find some replacements on TradeMe a couple of weeks ago. I got them sent to my parents place in NZ, and my wonderful Mum forwarded them onto us. They are slightly different, but they do the job. That means that we FINALLY are sleeping on our bed!!!!!!! We've had it up for a couple of days now, and it's still a novelty to walk past, or into, our room and see the bed! Oh, and let me tell you, it's SO much easier to get in and out of a bed at normal height when 31 weeks pregnant than it is getting on and off of a mattress on the floor!

*Sigh* So it appears that the measurements taken of the boys two weeks ago were off, and they are not, in fact, both measuring in the 50th percentiles for size. They are instead measuring in the 8th and 5th percentiles respectively. Our obstetrician is not worried that they are small, it's not unusual for twins. Nonetheless, I don't like the fact that they are so little...I guess as long as they are both growing it's ok, but still! All their measurements are looking great, and they are growing, so that is a little reassuring. But the 5th and 8th percentiles - that's TINY.
