More Pictures

The last week of our lives have been very busy. We are so glad to have two new additions to our family. It has been exhausting going back and forth from the NICU, but the twins are doing better and we hope to bring them home soon. Lily has been having a harder time than Carter. She had to have a feeding tube until yesterday, but now they are both breastfeeding and they also no longer need IVs. I have been meaning to post pictures for all to see but after spending everyday at the NICU I just want to come home and sleep but tonight I finally got around to putting some up. They are out of order but it is late, just enjoy pictures of these cute little ones. I know you will. Out little Lily 4 days old

They're Here!!!!!!

Well, I made it to 34 weeks and 3 days and our little ones decided to make their debut. They came very quickly and we could not be more thrilled to have them with us. Both of them are doing well. Baby girl came in weighing 4 lbs. 8 oz and baby boy was 4 lb. 11 oz. They were both sent right to the NICU but they are doing great! We are so happy they are a part of our family and we can't wait to bring them home in the near future. So, here they are: Not the best pictures since we were taking them through an isolet and they were still unbathed but they are still cute!!!

I think the time has come

No, not the babies! going private! I know a lot of you have gone private after getting comments from strangers or weirdos and I guess I was naive in thinking that it wouldn't happen to me. I was wrong, very wrong. I didn't want to take my blog private because I liked finding people and connecting again, but it has come time to protect my family from this weird world that we live in. I guess I have to think of it this way. Do I want pedofiles looking at my children? NO!!! I need to protect them so if you want to keep reading my blog please send me an email or leave a comment with you email and I will invite you.

Against My Better Judgment

I haven't updated in a while but I just wanted to let you know that I am still here on bedrest and we have reached the 33 week mark. I am so glad that we have made it this far even though it has been really hard. I have been admitted to the hospital 3 times and on bedrest now going into the fourth month, but we are in the home stretch. I will be completley down until 34 weeks and then I can get up and move around my house a little until 36 but I hope to go into labor before then! I think I will. I have had tough contractions and I think it will be in the next few weeks.

Anyway, I have talked to my sisters on the phone and I can tell that they are curious to see how big I really am. I am normally a pretty small pregnant woman but this time there are two in there so I am quite large. At least it is pretty much just my belly, thank goodness. I got up yesterday to use the restroom (that's all I can get up for) and I decided to ask Jeff to snap some shots. I didn't think I would put more photos up but I guess I was bored. Enjoy the funny shots. I hope the beach ball I swallowed will be two very cute babies in a few weeks and my spine will go back to its normal shape. Looks painful huh? It is!!!

Just the belly (or beach ball if you prefer)
The full shot. No makeup and lame hair but I can't do it so this is me in my natural state.
