Getting into the Spirit of Christmas

As we started decorating the house this year it became clear just hiw much bigger the girls have grown since last year. They are all about the decorations and lights. We've gone Christmas light looking probably 5 times already and all we hear is "I want to see more lights Daddy". The girls loved decorting the tree. If only I could convince them that the ornaments are meant to saty on the tree so Mommy doesn't have to redecorate it every day.

Visit with Santa

We took the girls and Matthew to our annual Jackpotts Christmas party last Saturday. Although we talked about Santa Claus all week long, the girls were still not thrilled with the idea of sitting on this strange man's lap. Check out the picture with Santa as the girls are clinging to Joe. Matthew liked his big white beard!

Moms of multiples are freaks of nature

Being a Mommy to twins, this video cracks me up. You would be surprised what people ask and how personal it gets. By far the most common question is if I had an infertility procedure. And no our twins were spontaneous.

Let the Imagination Play Begin...

Abby and Chloe have really started getting into imagination play and I just love watching them think, explore and have fun. With the addition of Matthew the girls have really gotten into playing with their baby dolls. They copy everything I do with him including changing diapers, feeding, burping and now playing. I am so happy they have each other when I cannot give them one on one time:)

Growing So Fast Already...

It's hard to believe Matthew will be 6 weeks old this week. He is already growing so fast. He looks different from the pictures on his birth announcements, he is awake more and he started smiling at us about 4 days ago. I am proud to say he smiled at his Momma first. This is huge to me because the girls smiled at Joe first. He smiled so big at me this morning at 4am that I didn't even care what time it was. He enjoys watching his sisters play and is not quite as fussy as when he was a week old(although he definitely still has his moments). Once we get him to sleep at night (usually between 11-12) he is good about sleeping for 3 hours, breastfeeding and then goes right back to sleep, which I certainly appreciate. I found that he loves the sling wrap I bought for the girls which they hated. We walked to our voting precinct last Tuesday and he slept the whole way in the wrap. Looking forward to when he starts to play with some of his toys.

Little Mommies...

Abby and Chloe received Cabbage Patch kids for their birthday. They are so in love with their babies and have watched Mommy with Matthew enough to know exactly what to do. Watch in the video as Abby swaddles, rocks, burps, kisses and feeds her baby. So sweet! Their babies have turned into the take along in the car toy.

Open Eyes!

Matthew is a really good baby. He has been opening his eyes more and more the last few days. He is also so strong and lifts his head already! Sometimes we have to remind ourselves he is only a week old.

C-Section is Scheduled...


After having my appointment today with my OBGYN, we have scheduled a c-section for tomorrow at 12pm. I was 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced. My doctor was not comfortable inducing with this little progress made and a prior c-section. At first I was really bummed and felt like I was giving up on my VBAC attempt, but after some time to think I am now pretty excited to have our baby boy tomorrow. Our doctor is estimating the baby to be close to if not 9 lbs. and he felt my body was at its limit for a baby this size. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow!
