Still kickin'

Yes. We are still alive. Although, after a weekend with the flu, I was beginning to wonder if we were going to make it. Brooklyn came down with it at Grandma and Grandpa's house on Saturday. She is such a tough cookie, though. She trekked right through it. I woke up about 2:30 in the morning on Sunday with it. Jack ended up with it Tuesday night. It was all fairly short lived, but icky, nonetheless. Zac has stayed clear of it. So far. We need to keep it that way, as he doesn't handle those things well!
Watching the "twinkies" everyday has definitely put a damper on my computer time, so I do apologize for being MIA for so long. I do have, however, a new found respect for all parents of multiples. My goodness. It's hard work! Feeding, burping, playing, feeding, changing, burping, playing, changing, napping, changing, feeding...well, you get the picture.
I have been having some mixed emotions lately. Here in a couple of days, it will mark the one year anniversary of Olivia's last day at home with us. She went in for a routine platelet transfusion on Mar. 8 and was admitted for the last time. It's going to be hard to think about those days, but there are so many significant "bad days" that I hope don't overwhelm me. I think keeping so busy with the babies will definitely be a good distraction.
Anyway, another feeding awaits me. Just wanted everyone to know we are still alive and kickin'!

Great to hear from you! I was wondering how it was going with the twins. I'm sure you are super busy!!!

Praying for you all the time.

Hi, I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I just wanted you to know that I will be praying for you and your family. You see, 19 years ago this spring,our son was born with Down Syndrome and a heart defect. He went to heaven that same year after a heart surgery. I remember well the many 'firsts'. I found that the anticipation of the actual date can sometimes (I say sometimes) be worse than the actual dates. Do something special for yourself and with your family is at all possible. The memories will live on and know that you are thought of by me during this difficult time. Olivia is a beautiful angel and maybe she is running and playing with our sweet son. Jmkay
