A Mostly Picture Post

I have so much that I would like to write about: our birth story, life in the NICU, what it's been like since we've been home.... Let's just say it's been extremely busy and time is not my own anymore.  Our life is now run by two one month old preemies.  We are loving every minute of it, but it is truly exhausting!  I promise I will get to those other posts, but in order for me to put all my thoughts in writing, I am going to need more than just a few minutes at a time.

So I will leave you with some pictures of two of the cutest babies ever to tide you over!

After spending 19 days in the NICU, the babies were discharged and we were finally bringing them home!  It was very scary to think about having them home and being on our own, without them hooked up to the monitors that would alarm if something weren't right.  However, we have managed to keep them alive so far...

Ayden James

Rylee Viola

So VERY tiny in their car seats!

We had storks welcome us home!  It was a very sweet surprise done by a friend.


On the way home from a visit to the doctor

Rylee now weights 6 lbs

Ayden weights 7 lbs, 3 oz!


Snuggle time with Mommy and Daddy




I managed to catch a smile on camera!

He melts my heart

The babies celebrated their One Month Birthday yesterday!  I can't believe it's been one month already.

She wasn't so sure about this picture taking business

She talked her brother into not liking the pictures either.  Either that or he didn't like her screaming in his ear!

Mom and Dad decided to feed the babies and let them go to sleep before trying another attempt at pictures.  It worked!

  5. One month already? Wow! They are adorable. Glad everyone is home and doing so well
    I remember it being so scary those first few days we had them home and they weren't hooked up to monitors anymore. We were constantly checking them to see if they were still breathing. Although, I think most new parents do that anyway.
    Welcome to the challenge of getting both babies to cooperate for the same picture. haha.
