The Boys

It's amazing that at just shy of 5 weeks these two boys can be so different and have such distinct personalities.

Camden. You of course are our 'puker'. You give us quite a fright when we wake up to you gagging on your puke. We cannot wait for you to outgrow this stage and although we love our new washer, we have come to use it several times a day.
You like riding in the car as long as it's moving, we hit a red light and you let us know it's time to get going! You like a pacifier, but you don't rely on it too heavily.
You have the biggest eyes ever. And they are so blue, I hope they stay that blue. You look bald but you have a fair amount of hair...it's just white blonde. You love to cuddle up with Mommy and rest your head on her chin. You are beautiful. When you cry you sound like a baby velociraptor (see Jurassic Park)...it's super high pitched. We hope you outgrow that before you are in Jr. High....for your sake. Oh and you just graduated and are no longer using the shield! So proud of you!

Christian. You are our dark haired, olive skinned beauty. You have some big cheeks. You have a chin dimple. No one in our family has a chin dimple. But you do. Oh wait....you are named for Cary Grant and HE has a chin dimple....this makes your Mommy very happy. :)
You have an extremely angry cry. Like...you sound downright mad when you cry. And there is no medium with you...you are silent or you are angry. You love to eat. You'd eat all day long if I let you. You are not a fan of bottles or pacifiers. You love the swing. You sleep your best in the swing. You smiled a real smile at your Mommy two days ago. You are beautiful.

And what is Jack up to these days? Well, he is Mr. Helper. He loves to feed to kitty, help with laundry, throw away dirty diapers, do dishes and sweep the floor. He likes his brother's feet. He doesn't seem to be bothered by their crying...in fact, it's kind of like they aren't even here. He always makes sure we don't forget them if we are headed out. He asks us "where's Canen an Chirt-shun Daddy Mommy??" "Why's Canen crying? Canen hungry?"
He is enjoying his Bible stories...in fact the only one he wants to read is David and Goliath. And he says "Jack do it"...and this is how it sounds
"Goliath was mean man. He want hurt God's people. He make mean faces. David picked up one, two, three, four, five stones..." I love that my 2 year old is learning his Bible stories! He also loves to sing Zacchaeus and Tiki Tiki Tiki Room. Disneyland is right up there with the Bible for us. Just joking just joking!!!!
He is pretty darn cute.

Camden was tested today for hyperthyroidism (his initial newborn screen said he had it) Turns out it was wrong, a false positive. PRAISE THE LORD!
Christian has what is called breastmilk jaundice...basically there is a protein in the breastmilk that can sometimes inhibit the bilirubin from being removed by the liver and it just takes a bit longer for the jaundice to clear up. His level is pretty low so there are no worries there...it will just take another week or so to completely leave.

  2. You sound so happy. That makes my heart smile! Enjoy all of your boys!

    My girls are so different too! Our Elizabeth was the bigger twin and a puker as well. She has totally outgrown it now. Emily is tiny and mellow, but man does she have a temper!

    I have so enjoyed getting to know them side by side and I know that you will too!

  4. One of my boys was a puker also I gave him small amounts of water after his feeding to settle his stomach. Give it to him slowly he is not used to the texture of water and will choke but it worked great.

  5. That picture of Trev holding the twins on a pillow is the greatest!
    I look forward to being able to take all three of my grandsons at the same time to do something fun.

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

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
