To our new friends of Surrogacy..

We have made some friends and shared some experiences with several couples doing surrogacy in India, and I just want to offer them some words of encouragement. This can and does work. Don’t give up your dreams of starting a family. I know that a negative is heart-breaking, a real kick in the gut. Lisa and I had many negatives while trying to get her pregnant. We got very lucky in that our first try in India was successful x2 and we wish the same for all those couples that are taking the same route we did to having a happy family. I await the day you all get your positives and I get to read of the joy you feel when it happens. And it will happen for you, I have faith. You all are in our prayers and thoughts. My best to you all.

Babies on Tour!

But first, I was kidding in my last post. I wouldn’t dare put the girls on the bike this early..I was just funnin’…

Lisa took the girls to see the nurse’s in the NICU at Downtown Baptist Hospital, where Lisa used to work.. The nurses in the NICU have been so important to teaching Lisa how to feed, diaper, and just generally care for preemies. Good thing too, because it just dawned on us all the other day, that the girls, by all rights, should not even have been born yet. They weren’t due until early August. Yet here they are, just chillin’ in life. They are growing and gaining weight. And they can be so funny. They can already do something I have never been able to do..the one eyebrow raise..it kills me when they do it..
Anyhoo…I thank all the nurses at the NICU, we really appreciate all you girls do and have done for us..

Here are some new pics of our little peanuts..

She Ain’t Havin’ It…

(Or I’ll kill you if you do!!)

I think I could remove the backrest, mount a cross plate and bolt the twins’ car seats on here. Of course I would never do it, but Lisa, just to be safe, threatened not only my life, but my manhood if I tried. I think Kelsey would love it. But alas, their first ride will have to wait.. lol

Baby Shower in Mississippi

While we were in MS for the 4th of July weekend, my family threw the twins a baby shower. We thank you all so very much for the gifts. Here are a few pictures of the family and some more of the girls.

They have taken over our bed, as they sleep longer in there than they do in their cribs. But we don’t mind as we love snuggling up to them.

A small update..

My apologies for the lack of updates. We have been busy with guests and the girls keep us on our toes. If anyone has any hints to help the girls sleep thru the night sooner, please..do tell in the comments section. The twins and Lisa and I will appreciate it. 🙂

The girls have been looking so cute in all the outfits that friends and family have given them. The girls have grown to the point that the outfits are fitting much better. I hope to have some more pics up either tomorrow or thursday. Pretty soon they will be big enough to put in the carrier that we received. The kind that fits like a backpack, but on the front. Then I can get some stuff done around the house. Right now our free time is consumed by holding one while we feed the other. On one hand I like the girls being on a different schedule. It means one is calm while the other is fed. But at night, that also means you’re up longer than if they were on the same schedule. Can’t have your cake and eat it too, I’m told.. but regardless of how tiring the girls can be to us, we cherish every moment with them. The faces Kelsey makes are just priceless. And Riley is getting a chubby face, it is too darn cute. Their hair is getting longer, and Lisa is looking for some little clip in bows.

Posts are about to really start kicking in, with more pictures and stories of the girls and their new introduction into life. Lisa has started her new job in Austin, so things are happening and changing quickly. Stay tuned…
