One Month Old Today!

The twins are ONE MONTH old today! I cannot believe it! Especially since they've only been home for two weeks...it just is surreal!

We had a follow-up visit with our pediatrician yesterday and the boys are doing wonderful! They both gained 10oz in 7 days, which is an ounce and a half a day, and that is from exclusive breastfeeding!! So Camden weighs 6.13 and Christian 6.14 :) I was one proud Momma! They are both ON the growth curve for height...I got some long boys :)
We started Camden on Zantac to see if it helps his puke issue...although it's probably more a laundry problem than a medical problem we thought we'd give it a shot.

His newborn screen test came back with elevated thyroid levels but they are thinking it was a false positive because I have no thyroid issues and he is showing no symptoms. So we will just keep an eye on him and trust that all is fine.

They are both focusing so well on our faces and I feel they are both on the verge of a huge smile :)
They are fitting better in their newborn clothes, and this was about the weight Jack was when he was born.

Tomorrow we are doing newborn pictures, a little late because of the NICU stay, but I'm super excited and I hope it all goes well. Check out my photographer's website...Catching Memories

Well, the boys are swinging away and Jack is asleep so it's time for me to snooze!

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! Face Lift Line 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

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
