Feelin' the Sibling Love

Here is one of the pics of their photo session we had last week or maybe s few weeks ago. My good friend Becky gave me pics for my baby shower. She did an amazing job. I love all of them. But as I started to load pics the baby's wanted to eat so, I had to stop for the moment.

Living the Life

So last week Justin mom came in town to help us out with the babies. It was SUCH a huge blessing and it made our lives a little bit easier, but we still lack sleep. We still lack a lot of sleep. Anyway, we were sitting around Sunday afternoon living the life,

Yes that's right we are living the life 2 in the afternoon, no shower, teeth not brushed and we have visitors knocking at the door. Yep life is great!!!!!!!

One Month Check Up

Last week we went to our one month check up. I was not prepared for the news stats that came with this visit.

Our little man has gained a little weight.
6lbs 10oz
19.5 inches
That's right folks he has gained 3 lbs and about 3 inches.
He is such a funny little boy. He is so uptight, and then can be so chill the next minute. We love having him around and his occasional smile. He has proven to be a little protected of his sister, those pictures are to come.

Brooklyn is growing just as well, but Brody has been so tiny that we are amazed with his chubby checks.

She weighed in at:
6lbs 11oz
18.5 inches

Here is the little princess in training and having a photo shoot.
I'm ready for the flu season and rsv season to be over because I love getting her all dressed up and putting bows on her head, but her dad hates hates fixing them all day so he has exed them. Her dad said that once we start leaving the house she can start wearing bows.

Together at Last

So today was a big day! Today was the day that our little family became complete. Today was the last day of traveling back and forth to see our kids. Brooklyn got to come home last Friday and Brody came home today. Justin has completed his 67 days of going to the hospital EVERYDAY, he did have his own little stint there for 3 days. With everything going on with me giving birth, and our kids in the NICU, we were getting ready to go to the hospital Justin's back had been giving him some problems so he was doing some exercises to strengthen his back and it went out. It was so bad he couldn't get off the floor and it took 4 men to carry him out into the living room ( Side note he texted his brother " help I've fallen and I can't get up" so he still had his sence of humor) so that he could get a ride to the hospital in the ambulance. It was a mess. It turned out that his 1 herniated disk turned into 4 over time. Anyway back to the babies. Here are some pictures of their first day home together.
A little sibling love!! She beat him up in the womb, so she didn't want him to forget who's boss.
Dad giving Brooklyn a pep talk that it's not nice to hit her brother. We want him to feel our love not our fists.
Brooklyn in all her glory. She just makes us laugh all the time. She is SOOOO laid back and chill, not much bothers her. When she first came home we started to get worried because she wasn't pooping, and she seemed pretty backed up. Today is has been a poop factory around here. Every time I turn around I hear her pooping her pants, if not her her brother is picking up her slack.

Brody enjoying his bath. I know that it doesn't really look like it, but he loved how warm it was and that his dad kept pouring more warm water on him to make it like a shower.

It's so great to have these two home. Now we are just waiting for their big brother to come visit to have everyone under one roof. I guess I need to work on that.

Ms. Squeakers!!!

Brooklyn is so funny to feed. She makes noise and talks to us the whole time. Brody is a more serious eater, he is down to business and finishes fast.
