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!
