What A Week!

What little travelers we have!  After a few days in South Texas, we drove back to North Texas on Wednesday.  Finally, I was feeling like myself again.  Thursday Drake had one appointment in Dallas; then we rested a bit and headed back to East Texas.  Drake had 2 appointments here in Tyler today, and he continues to do very well.  I wasn't sure, as he has not been feeling too well the last few days.  The travel to various areas of Texas seems to have made it clear that he does have allergies!  

We were planning to head back to Gran & Poppy's this evening, but now Brian is sick like I was last weekend.  Kennedy keeps calling for Daddy and wants to go to him, but she can't.  She can only look at him from outside the room.  I don't know who is more upset, Daddy or Kennedy!  

To top off our week, the twins are 14 months old today!  We weighed both babies yesterday.  Drake weighs 19 lbs.  Kennedy weighs 16 lbs 3 ozs.  

Overall, it has been one crazy, busy week!  The one thing I know is that these babies are very good travelers, and they definitely enjoyed being with all of their relatives--East, South and North Texas!

On a final note, I want to ask for prayers for a family in our home church in McKinney.  Their little boy was born at 27 weeks 3 days.  They are now experiencing the NICU life and the roller coaster of emotions and fears.  We pray that this little guy will be home with his family in the very near future.  It is so hard to believe that this time last year, we were there ourselves praying for weight gain, lung function improvement and how blessed we were to have those little, tiny angels in our lives.  We still give thanks for them every single day!  


  1. how beautiful the babies are drake and his big eyes AND HIS CURLY HAIR AND OF COURSE BEAUTIFUL KENNEDY such a blessing glad u r feeling better momy wish for dad to feel better soon i love you all keep up the great work

  2. I don't know if I've mentioned this before, if so I apologize. It's hard to believe that your little ones were born micro premies and at 14 mths weigh around what my second did at that time. She weighed in at 7 lbs 5 oz and 19 inches long at birth. But very soon after dropped into the 3rd% of her age group. She was only 16lbs at a year. At 4 she is 28-30 lbs depending on time of day ;)Your two are miracles, beautiful sweet miracles. I don't miss a post!

  3. I'm praying Bryan is feeling better.Glad you're feeling better.
    Those babies are so precious.Will be praying for the newborn in NICU.
