Happy Birthday Boys!

It’s really crazy that the boys are now 365 days old! It truly does fly by like everyone says. We were sitting on the floor looking at the boys’ preemie diapers & clothes this week, and we just couldn’t believe that they were ever that small.  They were both less than 4 pounds, on feeding tubes, extra oxygen, IV’s, & had reflux … and now they are eating food (well one kid is), pulling up, standing, giggling and talking. It truly amazes us in every way. I’m so proud of the progress they have made & it’s been an incredible journey.

We couldn’t have survived this first year without the support and help from family and friends. The first 5 months or so were very challenging, so we appreciate everyone that helped in any way possible. Thank you! We feel so blessed to have these two precious boys as our sons, and we look forward to many more memories ahead!

Happy 1st Birthday, Hudson & Landon!

Snow is better than Ice!

Last Friday when the snow came down, we took the boys out in it again.  At least we were able to get outside & not see just ice! Jason also took a break from work and made some snow ice cream.  He also thought skiing sounded like a great idea, and I wasn’t too sure about this. It lasted all of 10 min, and he managed to not break any bones. Needless to say, we’ve had a lot of fun! But, like everyone else, we are ready for SPRING!

6 inches of snow- 2/4/10


When can we go out?


How about now?

Ice Ice Baby… too cold too cold!

Alright. Stop. Collaborate and listen… going stir crazy here did I need to mention? 

Just like everyone else, we are stuck inside for days on end. It actually hasn’t been that bad, just lots of playin’ and stayin’ in our jammies most days. :0  Jason has been able to work from home all week, which has been nice. I am really glad we went to Gram’s on Monday. I think it’s safe for me to say, we are ready for another outing or two! Come on warmer weather! Hope everyone is staying warm & finding things to do at home.
