snakes, snails, and puppy dog tails. That's what little boys are made of.
McCoy Tayton Draygen Ayden Corbin Jiovan Briggs. (I was watching my sister's boys and of course Ayden was over playing as well)
My brother and his wife just moved in two houses down... I have LOVED it. My amazing brother and sister in-law? maybe not so much.
They are such great help and never say no. They watch my kids when they're sleeping so i don't have to wake them up to take them, when someone has a dr. appointment either me or the babies, and last but not least if I plain ol don't want to take them somewhere with me.

It has also been great because Their kids come down to my house all the time. Jiovan and Corbin LOVE playing with them and cry every time they have to (or want to) go home. They are also lots of help with the babies. They are a bit older (8 and 9) so they are a little more trustworthy with the twins.


The twin's 2 month check up.

(Andre is on the left, Xavier on the right)

Has it only been 2 months?! So much has happened in that much time.
It seams like they spent a lifetime in the NICU, and it seems like they have been home forever!
well they had their 2 month check-up today here are the stats.

9.52 lbs 8%
21.26 inches 4%
head 14.8 inches 7%

9.22 lbs 6%
21.46 inches 6%
head 14.8 inches 7%

Both babies have a herniated belly button. Dr. Marsden said they will heal up on their own. Andre's is really small and Xavier's is 3x the size of Andre's but still nothing to worry about.
What a relief.
They are also ahead of when they should be. Dr. M says they are really close to catching up to a regular 2 month old baby.

I'm so lucky. They are such good babies. Only cry when they are hungry or need a bum change. Jiovan and Corbin love to help with everything from putting dirty diapers away, getting new diapers/clothes to holding them or giving them their binkis. Love those two boys as well!
What a lucky Mami I am!

Jiovan starts Preschool

First of all I can't freaking believe I have a kid old enough for preschool.
Jiovan started school on the 8th of September. He goes 3 times a week and is LOVING it!
Corbin on the other hand does not like being home with his best bud. The whole 3 hours Jiovan is at preschool Corbin is asking where he is, wanting me to hold him, and just plain ol being bored. Glad they're such good friends.

Jiovan's teacher says he is a perfectionist when practicing his letters.
(this i know. i swear the kid is borderline OCD)
She also says in the activity room he just likes to watch. Not so much participation. But getting better everyday.

Corbin did not want to get near the babies. We got him close enough to take a picture and just as the nurse was going to take it Xavier puked all over Corbin. He didn't like that too much. :)
