I'm Back!

Sorry about abandoning you guys for so long. The last four months have been crazy! We not only had twins but we bought a house in April. Things are finally starting to settle down and I'm slowly getting a routine with the kids so I should be posting on a more regular basis from now on. I missed everyone here in the blogging world. Just so you know although I didn't leave any comments, I have been keeping up with everyone through my phone. It's just kind of hard to leave comments through a cellphone.

Here are a few highlights from the last few months. I was going to try and catch up on all the pics we've taken but that was too overwhelming. Love you guys!

Just Because

Who's who? Hmmmm?

Big Brother

Considering, Danny has adjusted beautifully to his little sisters. He has become so independent and not to mention he is such a good helper. Of course he does have his days but for the most part he's been a champ! He loves them so much, we often have to tell him to give them space because he always wants to be kissing and hugging them. I'm so proud of him. Sometimes I feel guilty because he doesn't get close to the attention he used to, but honestly, I don't think it even bothers him. He's in his own little world playing and pretending to be super heroes! I love him so much.

Baby(s) Blessing

Ella & Emma
Blessed on the second day of May

Here's a picture of them on their blessing day. My talented sister made their dresses and headbands. Aren't they adorable. Thank you Tia Arnnette. It made the day even more special. This is pretty much the only picture we took, we've been terrible about taking pictures!

They're Here! Please Welcome...

I know I'm posting this three months later but I thought better late than never! Sorry I abandoned my blog for so long but I'm back!

Ella Blue

Emma Blue

7.5 lbs 21 inches

I woke up to go to the bathroom at about two in the morning and as I laid down I felt a little pop in my stomach. I thought, "Hmmm, maybe one of the babies just kicked me." It kind of felt like it did when my water broke with Danny but I just brushed it off. I wasn't very comfortable so I stood up to change position and...it was confirmed, my water had broken! Now usually I would of been nervous but I can't tell you how relieved and excited I was. This pregnancy had been particularly brutal and I was so ready to be done with it! We had a c-section scheduled for a couple weeks out, but knowing they were ready on their own was a big relief!

Now, although it was a big relief, my heart ached. It ached for Danny. My mother in law was in town to help, but leaving him at night just broke my heart because that meant he'd wake up to no mommy at home. It felt like I was abandoning him. As much as I wanted to wake him up to let him know, I knew it would be worse if I did. We had never been apart for so long and that's what killed me! What made it worse is that the hospital did not allow kids in due to the swine flu. So that meant I wouldn't see Danny for three days!! I missed him already.

Once we got to the hospital, everything went very smoothly. We got there about three-ish and my doctor was scheduled to be there to deliver someone else at six so they were going to keep an eye on me until she got there. I didn't have contractions yet, so they figured I would be ok, but, uggghhh, three more hours, I didn't know if I could wait that long! I was just so anxious. Well last minute, my doctor changed her mind and didn't want me to have to wait. Bless her heart! Ella came out first and weighed 5.5 lbs, next was Emma, I remember as they were taking her out the doctor said, "whoa!" She weighed 7.5 pounds! That means I was carrying 13 pounds of baby around! Now wonder I was so miserable. I was so happy though, they were beautiful and healthy. I STILL can't believer there's two of them!
