They are finally home!

The twins are both home!!! I am so happy for Kim, John, Kate, and Colt! I hope to see them this week and get some pics on here to share!

As far as my family, My little Lexi turned 5! WoW ! We had her party today, and there was lots of good food, friends, and family! My niece Jessica, brought her horse and gave all the kids a ride! The theme was horse/cowgirl, and Lexi has talked about this party since her last birthday. She had so much fun, and after a long day of fun a tired little girl while brushing her teeth tonight looked at me and said "Jessica can bring Jet(her horse) to my another birthday next time? right? Mom?" Happy Birthday Alexis Kalynn!

update Sept 19th

I talked to John this morning. Kate was suppose to be released today, but she stopped breathing last night, they call it a (brady) so she is in there for 5 more days, hopefully no more brady's! She is weighing 5 lbs, and Colton is right behind her at 4 lbs 14 oz. They are talking about releasing Colton on Friday, so maybe the babies will get to leave together!

working on the twins room

So today Mom, Jennifer, and I worked on Kate and Cole's bedroom. Yvonne and Charles brought over the second baby bed and the changing table. I put up the baby bed. Jennifer and I hung the boy and girl john deere plates, and their names we found at Canton and had personalized for them. Jennifer brought her John Deere glass lamp and it looks great in the room. My mom is making the curtains 2 are up and 2 to go. We cleared out the dresser and started putting away baby clothes. The room is going to be adorable and hopefully ready when they get to come home.


Good Morning everyone! Sorry I have not updated for a couple of days. We were out of town this weekend. I talked to John last night, and he said the twins are doing good. They are out of their incubators now, and they are gaining a little weight everyday. Katherine has started to nurse some, but is taking a bottle too. John said he changed 5 diapers yesterday and 4 were dirty. I had to laugh, but he said it wasn't funny! But I think it is!! The family has been moved out of nicu, first to a very small room which was for one baby, but now they have a bigger room. Hopefully, the next move will be to their home.

update update, read all about it!

So much has changed since the last post. The twins are beautiful and GREAT! I will start with Colton! He is up to 3 lbs 7.9 ozs, eating 27 cc's in one feeding, he is off his oxygen tube, and they have moved the feeding tube to his nose. Here is before and after pic Monday and then last night. The first 2 pics are on Monday and then 3rd pic is from last night. You can see a definate change. He is filling out and less wires. Not that you can see, but he is more peaceful! He loves to be talked too and he moves his little head around now. He is wonderful, I just want to hold him and love on him.

Ok so now for Kate. She is 3 lbs and 11 oz, eating great, and she is so alert! She has been nuzzling with mom, taking a bottle now a couple of times, and it will be no time before she can nurse. She is an absolute doll. I am not bias by my nephew and niece at all but they are sooooo pretty! hahaha! I'm serious really they are!

So the best news is that they all may me moved today to level 2 care. Which means the babies are doing so great they don't need the NICU, and more room for Kim and John.

Kim is doing wonderful too, just trying to schedule her pumping and diaper changing and holding her babies as much as she can. She does have her hands full, tired and overwhelmed. John and Kim share and sleep on a fold out couch that makes a twin. Not sure how a woman can share a twin after an emergency c-section with twins. She is a strong woman! Lets all pray for the tired parents and for continued improvement on the babies health!

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Not sure when I will get to post next, but I will try to get something on here over the weekend. God Bless!

yesterday's update

Kate and Colt are improving daily. They are both off their picc valves, and they are both in the room with Kim and John. As of yesterday Colton is eating 25 cc's per feeding and doing good and oxygen is at 24. 21% is room air so he is close! Mom said Kate is very alert and looking around a lot more. Her feeding tube has been moved to her nose so she can nuzzle with Kim during feeding time to get ready for eating herself. Going to see them tonight and will not be back home till very late thursday so I will update friday and hope to have more pics.
