Dressing the boys alike

So, I've run into several people that still ask me if I dress the boys alike. I do. I love it! I was driving down the road a couple days ago and as I was stopping at a red light, I saw this dad and his two little girls getting out of the car to run into Old Navy. The girls were dressed identical..same size, same hair..they had to be twins. I LOVED seeing that. I love seeing twins in general and when they are dressed alike I think it makes it that much cuter! The girls were probably 5 or 6 years old but I loved everything about it. So, I ask myself will I ever stop dressing them alike? Well, yes eventually but I"m not really in any hurry to stop. I love showing off our twins.

Carter, Luke

It's been quite awhile since my last update but since the school year is ending I am hoping to keep up with the blog a little more during the summer. The boys are doing great. Both are very healthy and staying out of the doctors office. They come home everyday with new words. Carter can read half of Brown Bear Brown Bear to us and it is precious. Luke just loves to repeat everything we say! These boys are such blessings and we are so thankful everyday for them. They keep us busy but always smiling.

The boys love this old school popper toy that they can push and pull around like a vacuum. Lately, all we hear is Pop pop pop poppopoppopopopoppppp around the house! Thank you Auntie Mel for stealing any last bit of silence that we had left. The boys are obsessed with this toy, OBSESSED! It's the first thing they pick up in the morning and the last thing they put down before bed. They even park it outside the bedroom door as if it has it's own parking spot. We eat with this toy, we snuggle with this toy and if we allowed it in their bedroom, they would sleep with the thing.  Let me just give you a little idea of the connection the boys have with this new loud, popcorn popper!

Thank you Auntie Mel.

NICU Reunion

This update is for all the nurses and Doctor who are still following us.. Thank you and we love you guys!!! You played a huge part in our lives two years ago and we still think about you guys all the time. You were family to us and we could not have asked for better care for the boys.

The reunion was great and it was soo good to see all of our friends. We missed little Joshua though. We'll have to meet up sometime soon for a playdate. Here's a few pictures from the event.

I swear they are Identical.

The boys are both doing great! They eat everything and they keep us on our toes. They are in to everything as a normal "almost" two year old probably should be. They are still great sleepers and never put up a fuss about going to bed. I think we can thank the NICU for the schedule they put them on. They are still attending the same daycare as last year. We cannot believe how much they have learned and we really love the place as a whole. The boys are almost TWO and we are planning to have a bigger party this year.

ECI Visit

The boys are so active and keeping this Momma busy! We are all four off for the Summer so there's been a lot of Q.T. happening around here. The boys got baptized this last weekend with their little cousin Avery. It was a wonderful day and we got to celebrate with a lot of family. Here's a little update on the boys. Luke: He is finally walking as of 2-3 weeks ago and doing a little talking (dat, ball, uh oh and whoa are a few of his favorite words). He loves to know where brother is at all times and tends to copy Carter in most things. Luke loves when someone gets hiccups because it makes him laugh hysterically, only to end up with hiccups himself! He is still the super sweet snuggle bunny that we always said he was. We had ECI come out to evaluate Luke on physical developments and check on his speech and it turns out, he does not qualify for any services. He is doing great and developing just fine. Carter: He is basically running! He is very active and constantly loves to find Mommy. He amazes us everyday with new sounds or new words. Some of his favorite words are Uh oh, ball, whoaaaa, no no, more, and everything is labeled d-buh. He loves to woof,woof when he sees a bird, a bunny, a cat or a dog. Carter enjoys playing hide and seek and making lots of noise. We are staying pretty busy between the pool, toddler story time and playdates! The boys love a cool morning walk and a long afternoon nap.

Blue Bonnets

Carter is walking now..he's quick too! Luke is trying to get the hang of it and I'm sure he will pick it up really soon. We had a great Easter with my family at our house. The boys enjoy entertaining anyone who comes over so it is quite fun.

We took some pictures in the blue bonnets and they turned out absolutely gorgeous! Model babies...I think so!

 Boy, have we come a long way! We are so thankful. I read an article the other night about premature births and it just gives me chills. We have such an amazing God for all the blessings we have been given.

We're still on the Land of the Living!!

It's been awhile since our last update... Here's the boys now. They are 16 months old.


Both boys are happy, healthy and handsome!!!
They both weigh a whopping 24 lbs with full heads of hair and already needing (badly) haircut #2.
Carter is walking a lot at school and a little a home for us and Luke is eager to begin.

Let me jump back a month or two....

When Luke was admitted to the hospital with RSV..
Carter missed his brother tremendously! It broke our hearts and I thought this was just priceless. ; (

He knew something was missing...
10 days later...we got to bring Luke home
