There is a mama at Kaiser Roseville who delivered twins at 24 weeks. She even had the same high risk perinatologist that we had for Aiden and Isabella's kidney issues (remember all those Level 2 Ultrasounds I mentioned...Dr. Moreno Hunt was the doctor we worked with).
She was released from the hospital and now they are traveling back and forth to the NICU to visit Carter and Easton. I know that she could use your good thoughts and prayers as she goes through the ups and downs of having two babies in the NICU. I can only guess what they are going through right now.

There was even a mom of quads! There's nothing more humbling than talking to a woman who is doing three times more work than you (she also has a four year old).
I can't wait to go to many many more! There is a sense of comraderie and sisterhood with moms of any types, but there's also something so special about talking to moms of twins who are getting the same sort of comments, going through the same struggles (e.g. breastfeeding twins), who've been through the NICU experience, and who you can just laugh with.

I am LOVING the newborn photos my sister took of my family! She truly is fabulous! I'm going to do a post of just these photos, but here's a little sneak
HERE is the link for the daily deals for boy/girl twins. But they have Twin Girl Daily Deals and Twin Boy Daily Deals. They have such good prices. I haven't ordered anything from there, but I can't wait to find some deals (maybe some day when we have money...hehe)!

I, as a teacher, am on a pay scale that is dependent on how many educational units I have. The more education I get, the more I can get paid (up to a certain point). Because of this and because of our recent family additions (and the cost of daycare tripling), I found it necessary to get more units. Last year I attended classes in the evenings, but it takes a long time to accumulate enough hours to actually make a dent in the amount of units I need to move over. So, we saw an opportunity for me to take a week long class this week and jumped at it (Mr. Howard VERY graciously agreed to watch all the babies).
I didn't think I would have a rough time leaving the babies... as I've done it before when I went back to work after Connor AND it's only from 8:30-3:30 AND Mr. Howard was bringing the babies to me at lunch so that I could nurse them...but boy was I wrong. I almost burst into tears seeing my babies in Mr. Howard's car as I was driving away.
I know they didn't miss me a bit, but I sure did miss them. I'm so thankful I have several weeks before I have to go back to work full time!!
