In the News...

There are some very exciting things going on in the NICU these days...

There is a most perfect, beautiful little girl who is NO LONGER on oxygen! This same girl has been taking all her feedings by mouth for 24 hours. This, my friends, is a very, very, very good sign that she could be coming home soon.

By soon, I mean maybe this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh. my. goodness!!!

And my sweet little Jacob man...well, he wants to catch up with his sister, but he has a bad case of reflux. He needs oxygen when eating, but otherwise is doing really well. I bet he will catch up with Audrey in a few days.

Miss Ella started preschool at a little church about a mile from home. She went right to her class without crying. We are hoping this will provide us with the balance we need with two babies at home. She sang "Jesus loves me" over and over again on the car ride home. I'd say that is a good sign.

Otherwise, we are trying to pull together last minute details before the babes come home...like finding a car that actually holds everyone. This brings me to my next statement...

Never say you'll never buy a minivan. When you have three car seats (two which you have to continually get in and out entirely), you basically have one option. Yes, my friends, this mommy will soon be the proud owner of a swagger wagon. Andrew keeps reminding me that this is a good problem to have because it means we are going to have three kids!

But, don't worry...I'll class it up with some high heels and red lipstick now and then. I'm going to make a minivan look so cool you are all going to wish you had one too!

I hope my next post is telling of a certain babes homecoming!!!

Hey! I have no idea how I found your blog. I'm currently pregnant with twin boys and I have a soon to be 3 year old boy! I had to laugh at your post today because I've learned to never say never! I am too a proud owner of a mini van! I hope to keep up with your blog and see how your babies are doing! I hope they make it home soon!

awesome that they are doing so good! Won't be long and you will have a van full! I always said I would never own a mini van, however, my husband has 2 older kids from his previous marriage and then we had twins, so that gave us 4 kids in carseats! Now I don't know what I would do without the van, however, as the twins get older I keep thinking maybe we'll get a 3rd row suv sometime!

Awesome news! and little man will catch up soon. I agree with the never say never. I always said that I would never puchase a mini van but then God gave our family of three a set of twins to make us a family of 5. The freedom that a mini van gives us is more than words can say and I have not ever regretted getting it. Good luck on your search! Praise God for the babies strength!

Awesome news! and little man will be home soon too! I am with you on the never say never. God gave our little family of three a set of twins as well and made us a family of 5. I said I would never have a minivan either but...as the story goes we did! I do not regret it either. Have a great week and enjoy those last few moments at home with just your oldest because the twins will take over! God bless :)
