We're ALL Home!

Sorry for the delay in my posting...life is officially busy :) We brought Camden home this last week followed by Christian yesterday morning! The boys have been champ eaters and Camden now weighs 5lbs 10.4oz and Christian is at 5lbs 14oz! They also both grew about an inch in length!

I am still tandem nursing, although without my husband's help I'm not sure it would be happening. It might work for now, but I'm also thinking of trying some other things (one at a time, one with a bottle of breast milk etc) just to see what works for us.

We got them on a schedule at the hospital, and so far they are doing pretty well! Sometimes still confused as to when it's night and when it's day :) Camden is quite a spitty baby, but we don't think it's reflux...just a loose sphincter muscle from being a bit premature. They both have quite the distinguishable personality already.

Jack is doing better each day. He's definitely been acting out and doing things he has NEVER done before which makes me sad...but he isn't directing it at the boys so that's good. I know it will just take time. He's such a sensitive little man and I know we've rocked his world.

Today we woke up to snow! So Trev and Jack spent some time out there and then inside we painted a bird house! Trying to keep the fun up for Jack and keep his schedule regular.

Here are a bunch of pictures from the last several days. Thank you all so much for your prayers...they have been felt.
As we settle in to this new crazy, continue praying for rest, patience and wisdom. Thank you for loving on us!!

    You guys are doing great and yes your schedule will surely ease up as time goes by! One thing I have learned since the girls is just as you settle into a routine they change it up but thats kinda how us girls are..we like to keep people guessing! The boys are thriving being at home surrounded by love and thats so nice to see after a difficult start..your doing great and with an awesome partner by your side anything is possible...YAY for wonderful husbands! Hoping for as much sleep as possible and praying for patience and wisdom!
    Take care and much love,

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care!
When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better!
I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!


Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence Kit! Um, yummy.



It includes *…

I Believe He is Faithful

This past Tuesday I got a phone call from our caseworker that was nothing short of a gut punch. After hanging up the phone I started sobbing right there in the Pilot gas station parking lot. I had just had my hair cut for the first time in over a year, and was coming off of weeks of illness and texted Trevor that I was going to drive around for a bit and enjoy some quiet and fresh air. I pulled off to grab a bite from good ol Taco Bell when the phone call came through.  The words she spoke were the last things we wanted to hear- in fact they were the things we’ve been praying we would not hear this entire past year. It seemed unfathomable, and in fact is quite ludicrous which she herself admitted to thinking as well. I cannot imagine working for a system that so blatantly traumatizes children who have been victims of trauma already. It is hard enough as a foster parent to watch this happen. I cried, I texted Trevor I couldn’t come home until she was in bed, that I had gotten a phone …
