Today/tonight I have the boys all to myself, Brian is at work then meeting up with some guys from church. It has been a great day and I truly can not believe how blessed I am. These two little boys just amaze me. For the first time the boys played in the grass. They love being outside but on a blanket, wagon or stroller. Today the boys were swinging and I got tired of pushing them so I took them out and just sat them in the grass, after 5 minutes they were playing with the grass and a few minutes later they were crawling and exploring the yard. It was so cool to see. I am so happy that they like being outside but so sad that I did not have my camera to document it. I just had to share that they did something new today!

In a couple of days it will be a year to the day that we brought John home from the NICU and Brandon followed two days later. As I remember those days my eyes tear up. It has been one amazing trip and I can not wait to put up pictures from the past year's journey. I remember the entire day that the boys were born, hearing John cry and being told Brandon was peeing as he came out, answering the phone in the recovery room and telling my cousin Jay that the boys were here and doing well. I remember trying to feel my legs and loving the feeling of being all warm. I can remember trying to change the twins diaper from an isolete. I remember holding a 4 pound baby for the first time, I was so nervous but the moment that little boy was in my arms it was so natural. I remember getting so frustrated that they would not take a bottle yet so excited that they drank 4ml of milk. I remember having to be so scheduled after getting home from the hospital while the boys were still there and trying to see them as much as possible. I loved hearing that they kept gaining weight. I was so excited the first time they had a bowel movement. The best thing was the day Brandon came home though, having both boys home with us after a month in the NICU. That was just the best feeling. Staying awake all night just to make sure they were ok and made it through the night. Getting up every three hours to feed and change them. Seeing them roll over, crawl, now walking (Brandon doing it solo and John with push toys). I just can now believe it has almost been a year that they have been home. It is just amazing. Thanks to all the help we have had, especially to my mother-in-law for coming over and spending the night and putting up with me and my MOM who has been there for me through everything. She does so well with the boys and I am so glad she is here. Pictures are to come of the past years journey for each boys. Be on the look out!

I am alittle late on this post since the boys had their check-up a week ago but so much has been going on that this is the first time I have had time to post it.
He is such a ham.... his personality is really shining. He is laughing and will try and imitate you do. He can put balls into shape sorters. He has taken steps and walks behind everything. He is biting and slapping as well!

He is very observant.... he loves to ride in the car and look outside. He loves his blanket and lights up when you bring it to him. He likes anything that spins and loves to smile and laugh when you play peek-a-boo. He is also walking behind everything.

Colorado was so great. The boys did such a great job on the flight there and back, sleeping most the way. We had no issues which was so awesome! The altitude did not seem too bad either for them. We has such fun hanging out with family, going out to eat and playing in the snow. Here are some pictures from the trip!
