Life as we know it has changed!!

So, this is the scene of the crime! Most of you know that G flipped out of the Pack and Play on Sunday, we had been talking about how we needed to lower the bassinet part of it & we just never got to it, until Sunday that is!! He is fine, I cried much longer than he did!! We have officially came to the point in our lives, where it's time to lower cribs, they have outgrown the swings, they are crawling around, eating plants and falling out of pack and plays!! I never would have thought that 1-year ago, I would be rearranging my house and getting ready to babyproof!!! We are so excited about the progress the babies have made!!

And here he is that SAME afternoon, trying to pull himself up again!! I guess we have found out who the little daredevil is going to be!

They are officially on the move! I was doing dishes in the kitchen & they were on the quilt in the living room..... or they were supposed to be & this is where I found L! I will catch another picture of G & post soon!

April 2009

So I haven't posted in a while & I know I need to be better about it so, I will start trying to update at least once a week. The babies are doing great, they are both working so hard on learning how to crawl, G just about has it mastered. He also has 4 and a half! teeth and little Miss L has none yet, but she is getting close. We go back on April 29th for G's followup on his eye surgery, at that time he will do an Acid Test?! (Sounds scary!) and will hopefully be able to determine if he has to have any more surgery, if the retina has stayed attached & what, if any vision he has in that eye. We have had a busy past couple of weeks, we have had a yard sale, bought a new vehicle, celebrated Easter, L & I had our first girls only shopping trip and we had the March of Dimes Walk this past Sunday in the pouring down rain!! Needless to say, this paranoid momma didn't have her babies out there, they were tucked away dry and warm with Grandma & Aunt Leann!! Here is a picture of them decked out in their Team Beard gear!

The past week or so I have been spending my time at night after the babies have gone to bed (Todd included!) and reading other blogs that people have told me about or ones that I have found on other blogs. Most of these blogs tell a story of babies, and some of them include stories that don't have a Happy Ending. I honestly believe that I have shed as many tears in the last week or so reading these blogs as I did when the babies were born. Believe me, I know that my last year has been tough and I have had plenty of pity parties for myself but to go through what some of these families have, I feel even more Blessed than I already did, if that's possible b/c I know for certain how Blessed we are. Some of these stories, the families knew months before giving birth that their babies wouldn't live days or hours in some cases. I can't even begin to imagine how to prepare to say goodbye to a precious baby that you just met, but many families have had to do this very thing. I just ask that each of you that read this blog, hug your children a little tighter tonight. I don't know what the future holds for my 2 babies, they are doing so good right now, but we still have a long way to go with them, I do know that God has a special plan for them, he has already used them to touch so many people's lives, I can only imagine what the future holds for them! I will leave you all tonight with some pictures of my precious babies from Easter!!!
