Introducing Aidan Taylor & Brody Thomas...

What a St. Patrick's Day we had!!! Twin boys will look forward to celebrating their birthday with some green beer (hopefully about 21 years in the future). We all got to come home on Friday and we're so thankful that all of us got to come home together. Aidan did have to spend a few days in the NICU, but is doing well now. He does have to have a billi blanket for a few days, but hopefully by Monday we can get rid of that. I will post more information later, but I'm sure what everyone wants to see is pictures, so here's a link to an album I've created. Thanks for looking!

False Alarm, but...

...we have a birthday! Well, we kind of thought today was going to be the day. Lynn asked us to come in to get checked out after two straight hours of cramping and some kind of bad news from our appointment last week (we just found out today). It turns out that baby B is not the five pounds that the doctor said, but is 4 lbs, 3 oz. and almost one pound behind baby A. This is cause for concern, so they want to take the babies at 36 weeks. If they decide not to show before, we will be going in next Thursday morning at 5:30 for a c-section due to the babies positions. I can't believe I'm going to meet my babies in 10 days. I am so excited!!

34 Weeks, 4 Days - Kissing Butt!

Today is definitely a sad day as I sit here and type this update. The UWSP Women's Basketball season came to a disappointing end last night on our home court in the first round of the NCAA tournament. What a rough week, first Brett Favre and now this!!! It was hard to swallow that we lost to a team that is not as talented as us, but there's nothing we can do now. We had a great year and its definitely going to be sad to see our six seniors go. I think the only thing that has helped keep me in an okay frame-of-mind with this loss, is the quick approaching birth of the twins. I cannot believe we made it to 34.5 weeks. I am so thankful, and now that our season is over, I am ready for these twins to make their debut any time.

We went to see Dr. Jazz this week and he said that both babies are measuring at 5 pounds and look great. He said that I just need to get some contractions going this week because they look ready to go. My real goal throughout this pregnancy was to make it through our season, which I have now, so please say your prayers. Ten pounds of baby is a lot to be carrying around - especially with them growing every day. Baby A is head down and ready, but Baby B is transverse right now. It looks like we're looking at a c-section right now, but a girl can always hope! I am going to post a few pics of my beautiful babes. It's a little hard to see because they're in black and white and not as high quality but I think we got a money shot.
Here is Baby A - head down and ready to go.

Here is Baby B - guess what s/he is kissing? That's right - Baby A's butt!!
