Thirty-three days ago my life forever changed. Before I could hop in my car and drive to the grocery store without thinking a thing of it. Need toothpaste, I'll go get it. We attended all of the Thunder games. I could go to the gym whenever I pleased and sleep, showering and makeup were never considered a luxury.

Now in one day I change roughly 16 diapers, wash, fill and feed 16 bottles, use the big blue bulb to remove green stuff from little tiny nasal passages, do massive amounts of laundry and after a sleepless night and a long day of fussy babies I hope to have a smile on my face when Trent gets home from work.

BUT...when I look at these faces it makes everything all worth it. I never knew I could love something so much. I love to kiss their tiny cheeks, their tiny toes and their little button noses. My heart melts when I feed them a bottle and they look up at me with those big eyes that tell me they feel safe. Oh how I love these boys.

In a few weeks I will return to work; I will so miss those 16 bottles and 16 diaper changes.

Christmas Shopping

I can't believe Christmas is just a few weeks away. I've done a little shopping, but have more to do. This post is just a reminder that Kathleen's Etsy shop has been updated with lots of fabulous handmade items and all proceeds benefit their adoption fund.

What a great way to get some Christmas shopping done and to help them in their quest, which will give Jackson and Brooks another cousin.

She made us the stockings and they are adorable!

Got Milk?

Here is a video Trent took of Jackson rooting around...all he could only find was his brothers head.

Pretty cute!

They went to the doctor yesterday and in 10 days they each gained 1 lb. Jackson now weighs 6 lbs 6 oz and Brooks weighs 6 lbs 3 oz. Way to GROW Boys!
