Halloween & Babies Blessings

Things have been crazy!.... but fun! The babies are doing good and we all had a fun Halloween despite the rain. The Boys were able to go out and still get way to much candy, while me and the babies stayed home and handed out "scarrots" (bags of baby carrots!) Milo was so embarrassed he said he didn't want to be here when kids came so they didn't see that we were handing out carrots instead of candy! it was pretty funny to see every ones reaction when they realized it was carrots, some kids wouldn't even take them! it was a "trick" and a "treat"!
We also Blessed the babies this week, they were really great blessings and we had a little family get-together after, which was lots of fun and chaos! My friend Nicole made Lola's blessing dress, it is SO cute! I almost didn't get any pictures of them in their clothes, because they got so cranky after everyone left that I just wanted to put them to bed! but we managed to get a few..

And just for fun.........

I cant believe it! after 36 long days in the NICU we were able to bring home our babies! it was just like everyone told me, "once they get "it" you will be out so quick" and that's just how it was, the Dr. changed their feeds to "on demand" which is pretty much what you would do at home right? and after a whole day and night of that he said "come and get them, their ready!" and here we are home at last with our beautiful babies which are just heavenly and are already on the most perfect schedule!

Twins 1 month old! First day of school!

Oscar and Lola turned 1 month old today!! they are still in the NICU :( but continuing to improve....slowly. Oscar now weighs 5lbs 14oz and Lola weighs 5lbs 12 oz, they are getting so big! They are still just struggling to eat, without getting distracted or falling asleep.
Till then, we will just celebrate the month we have had with these sweet babies and treasure all the fun times which we will have in the near future when we get to bring them home!

I made them these little onesies to celebrate their first month... of course Lola peed on hers before the day was even half over!

Lola and her googly eyes.

Oscar without his tube!!! (because he ripped it out! and then ripped Lolas out too! they finally had to put socks on his hands and then he learned how to get the socks off so they finally taped them on!)

Milos first day of school (3rd grade) he refused to wear any of the new clothes I got him? Russ and I have decided... 8 year olds are weird.

Auggie outside of his preschool class! he was so excited!

And of course.... the classic auggie picture. ok, 2 year olds are weird too.

3 weeks old... still in the NICU

Poor little Lola and Oscar, Still not home! I really am ready for them to be here in our home. we had a little step backward this week, which made us have to pretty much start all over with feedings again! they both had a little problem with their stomachs, so we needed to stop all feedings and hook them back up to IVs to let their stomachs rest and recover for a while. it was so sad because we have been trying to train them to eat, and then we just stop, they were a little used to getting fed and having full belly's, that you could tell they were hungry! it was so heartbreaking to watch! after a bunch of tests and x-rays the doctors feel that it is ok to start them slowly back on to tube feedings again, but we have to slowly do this, so it does not irritate their stomachs anymore. So.... little step back, hopefully it wont take us long to get back to where we were!? man we love these little kiddos!

Almost 2 weeks old!

I Cant believe that these little babies will be 2 weeks old tomorrow! they have changed so much! they are slowly but surely improving. They are still in the NICU, but are generally really healthy! they aren't on any oxygen, but they just need to learn to eat without the feeding tube. they need to be able to eat all their feeds through a bottle... and right now, they don't even do half a feed through their twice a day feedings! so we are working on it. everyday they seem to do a little better. so hopefully in a few more weeks we can have them come home!

has it been that long?!

Whew! I have been slacking on this blog! since there is no way I can blog everything that has happened from now since last time i blogged, I will just give a quick update...

baby news... Still cooking! I am at 34 weeks! I cant believe I have made it this far! I seriously feel like my body is falling apart! my back and my hips kill! but hey, it will all be worth it....right? I am feeling pretty prepared? We have our two cribs, two bassinets, two swings, two car seats, two rocking chairs..... you get the idea..TWO! still seems pretty unreal that we are close to having TWO babies that are going to throw us for one crazy ride!
( me, Milo and Lexi at Nana and Papas for a little firework fun! I know, I know I look like i have one of those huge exercise balls under my shirt!)

Milo, is turning 8 tomorrow! I cant even believe it! he is SO excited to get baptised this Saturday! (hopefully the babies will cooperate till then!) he is having a day of fun tomorrow, I will have to post pictures after! AND he decided he wanted to cut his hair! he looks so grown up!

Auggie... where do i begin!? he is definitely in the terrible 2 stage of life! and i can only imagine it might get a little worse when the babies come? but we love him to death anyway! even though he spends the majority of his day in timeout for hitting, pinching or yelling. its all just a phase.....right?...please?

(Milo, Russ and Auggie wearing there Argentine Jerseys that my mom brought back from Argentina.... cute boys!)

Russ, has been an allstar husband taking care of me, the boys, the house and work! while I have been on bed rest. I really am so lucky!

well I will hopefully be blogging more soon!

2 + 2 = 4

Yes, those are blue storks and you know what blue storks carry right?.... BOYS! we are adding two more boys to the bunch! We are so excited! 4 boys! I hadn't quite imagined having 4 boys, but the more I think about it the more excited I get! I think it will be good because Auggie is really going to toughen those boys right up! Wish us luck!

Potty Time

Here's the situation...


Here's the dilemma... I tried one day of "big boy" underware with Auggie and he only went in the potty ONCE and peed his pants all day long! What do I do!? I need some serious help in the potty training department! I feel like I don't remember this at all with milo? I was thinking of trying some instructional DVD's that would get him "pumped" to go pee-pee in the potty! but I have no idea where to begin?

So if any one is reading this... and you have any helpful ideas, please let me know! I'm desperate! I have about 5 months to get him OUT of diapers! HELP!

Two Babies, Two Heartbeats, Two Happy Parents, Two Excited Brothers.

MiLo'S 7th BiRtHDaY!

Look at this sweet little baby! I cant believe he is 7 now! time has gone by so fast! we used to call this his "Tommy boy" face. He would smile really big and pull his chin back, and get all... chubby! and he had some CRAZY hair! he still is just as sweet as he was when he was a baby.

we started the day off right with Milo's favorite Birthday breakfast! which consisted of hash browns sausage and bacon and dutch babies (aka Swedish pancakes in mini muffin tins) mmmmm mmmmm!
This year all Milo wanted for his birthday was his room to be redone, so we gave him a little older room by painting it and adding a few new things and cool posters to it. He was really specific on the colors we could use and he really wanted under his loft bed to be an art studio! he was thinking that when kids came over they could purchase his art work, and that way he can earn money! what a great idea! LOVE IT!
The next day he had a luau/pool party with some Friends and family. It was tons of fun and as usual way to much food! but it was a great wrap up of Milo's Big Birthday Weekend! WE LOVE YOU MILO! HaPpy BiRThDaY!!!
I just had to throw in this picture of Auggie relaxing in Milo's new chair! he is so jealous of his big
brothers new room!

Bike Rides! we LOVE going on bike rides right now! Auggie likes to grab the back of my hair and pull on it, OUCH! Milo is such a good little rider, he loves to try and do jumps off the curb.

First Zucchini of the season! We have a garden at Nana and Papas house. It is amazing to see everything grow so fast!

Auggie's shoe fascination... Aug is obsessed with putting every ones shoes on, but I think these ones are my favorite! heels really do help the legs look more slender!

This is what you get when you you leave two bored boys with a roll of tape!

... And of course Aug had to see what all the fun was about!

Shirt off, outside, getting messy.... pretty much sums up our summer so far!
