Wordless Wednesday... I am going to add some words! This picture was taken at 2 am this morning. Paxton had been screaming bloody murder since midnight, with a few minutes of quiet only to catch his breath. At 2am when I started to feed him...TOTALLY passed out. I mean dead to the world, wouldnt budge, wouldnt move a muscle. Seriously...AGHHHH!!! I just looked at Aaron and said, "It is a good thing they are so freaking cute. Nights like this would have stopped mommys and daddys from having babies a long time ago!!!" And the sleep didnt get any better. I called Aaron at work this morning and said, "Well, last night was fun." To which he responded, "Yep, I look like a meth addict!!" LOLOLOL!!!! Oh, you have to laugh or you would most certainly weep...and who has time for that with twins. :-)

Pics of the Day!!



I love toes!!!

Happy 1 Month B-Day little bugs!

Dear Paxton and Kellen-
Today the two of you have been on this earth for one whole month! Wow, what a month. It has been so much fun for mommy and daddy to watch you eat, sleep, and poop your way through these first weeks. And fellas, those three activities have taken up the majority of your time. The two of you are very different, and we cant wait to watch those little personalities blossum.

Paxton- You are older by one minute, and weigh over a pound more than your little brother. Lucky for you, Kellen took on the projectile vomitting and you didnt! After you eat you smack your lips, you always sneeze twice and the second one always sounds different (and is the cutest noise in the world), you grunt like an 80 year old man, you rolled over for the first time at two weeks, and your nicknames are neverending...Pax, Pac, PacMan, Pac Daddy. But ofcourse, your my little bug.

Kellen- We got to see early, at three weeks and a day to be exact, that size does not determine strength. You laid perfectly still during your ultrasound, the sonographer could not believe how good you were. The nurses and doctors had to poke you seven times before they could find a vein to run an IV, you cried...but laid still until they were done. Mommy and daddy took turns rocking you for six hours in recovery after your surgery. You quietly whimpered in pain, but never cried. You love to curl up on my chest and sleep. Your nickname is Kel Bug, and you will always be my little bug.

Funniest Moment: Kellen when you were in the hospital Paxton came to visit you the day after your surgery. We laid Paxton in the crib with you, and I quickly smelled Pax's dirty diaper. I realized I needed wipes, and there were none in our hospital room. While trying to find a substitute, you began to pee...pee all over Kellen's hospital crib, pee all over Kellen, pee all over your self, and everyone standing in a foot radius of you!! It went everywhere!!!! We thought a reunion between you two would make Kellen feel better, instead Kellen needed a bath when you left!!

For nearly 38 weeks I couldnt wait to meet the pair of you, and my sweethearts, you have not disappointed. I am so proud to be your mommy and love you to pieces.

XOXO- Mommy

Kellen Has Surgery :-(

As many of you know, Kellen underwent surgery Wednesday night around 11 pm for Pyloric Stenosis. He had been vomitting his food (almost since birth), and the vomitting got worse projectiling sometimes two feet in distance. Aaron and I took him and Paxton to their new Nashville peditrician on Wednesday. We discussed Kellen's vomitting, and to be cautious the doctor sent us to Vanderbilt Children's for an abdominal ultrasound. Mainly to assure that Kellen didnt have pyloric stenosis. We had the ultrasound, and within an hour and half we were told Kellen would be having surgery that night. I cannot explain the shock Aaron and I felt, it was certainly the last thing we expected. We had no idea what this condition was or what the surgery entailed.

Fortunately we were at one of the best children's hospitals in the country and this surgery is very common there. The procedure lasted about an hour, we spent two nights in the hospital. Kellen just needed to keep two feedings of all formula down and we could go home. He was successful on Friday, and we are now resting at home.

Thank you to everyone for the calls, texts, and prayers. As my dad told me, we have officially been inducted into the 'Parents Club of the World'...and we feel it!! Kellen and Paxton are very happy to be reunited, they are now sleeping together and all is right in the world again!!

Our First Peditrician Visit

The babies look fantastic, weighing almost what they did at delivery. Paxton weighed 6lbs4oz, Kellen weighed 5lb12oz. One ounce and two ounces shy of birth weight. All else checked out, and we dont have to go back until their second month b-day.

Sure, waking up at 4 am in the morning for feedings is difficult...but pales in comparison to what some families are up against with newborn twins and singletons. We are so blessed, prayers have no doubt been answered.

Too Funny!

So I was holding the little bugs after their dinner tonight and Kellen started kicking Paxton in the face. It was a little glimpse into what their world was like in mommy's tummy! And Paxton didnt even wake up! Twins are constant entertainment!!

All limbs!!
