This year we decided to be sporadic and drive to Fresno to be with my family for Christmas Eve, and then back to the Bay Area for Christmas morning to be with Aaron's family. Many people think we must be insane to do such a thing with month old babies, but we decided to go for it. For Christmas my hubby got me a new Volvo SUV. I am happy to have a safe, yet sporty vehicle to lug all the baby stuff as well as the babies! Things were going well for us until we were ready for bed on Christmas night. I started feeling nauseous and Aaron complained of a sore throat and a major headache. Not long after I went to bed, I was up and sprinting for the bathroom. It seems like I had the flu (which annoyes me because I got the flu shot!)...I had to basically sleep on the bathroom floor. I was really upset about the whole ordeal because I did not want to get the babies sick. Thank goodness for Mother in Laws. She rushed right over and stayed up with the boys all day and all night. She cleaned, cooked, and made bottles and fed the boys every 3 hours!! We would not have been able to do it without her. I am feeling better but have a migraine. The boys seem to be doing well, thank God! I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas!

Well it has been quite some time since my last post. I had my boys' on November 27, 2009. I have barely had 5 minutes of alone time/peace and quiet since then. I am so exhausted but my boys are well worth it. The boys were born by C-section. Dylan James was born first...5 lbs. 13 oz. Brayden Tyler was second coming it at 6 lbs. 7 oz. That is pretty good for them being a month premature and the fact that my pregnancy was so high risk. Brayden had to stay in the NICU for a wekk. He had fluid in his lungs, and infection they couldn't diagnose, a heart murmur, and he simply wouldn't gain any weight. Now both boys are home and are thriving. You can already see that they have two different personalities. I must say I am a bit jealous that everyone says they look like Aaron. I really want them to have some of my features so people will know they are mine!! I never know I could love anyone as much as I love these boys. They are amazing and they have my heart. I feel like I have changed so much. Thank the good lord that Aaron took 6 weeks off of work. Without him here, I would seriously wig out! I have had a few melt downs but nothing serious. I really need some kind of help but all of my family lives 3 hours away. I am scared for January 4th when Aaron has to go back to work. Well I hear some grunts coming from the nursery so I guess my 5 minutes of alone time is up. I will try to update more often! Miss all of you bloggers!!
