Growing Babies

So the boys are growing although I think that they are in a pretty low % for their age. Tristin now weighs 7 lbs 4 oz and Gavin weighs 7 lbs 10 oz. We have been busy with doctor visit and other things so my mom and even dad have been good enough to watch the boys this week for me so I could get some things done. Jillian and Mom took some pictures with the boys together. I think it's cute when they hang out together.

vacation, nope hospital stay!

So I ended up taking Tristin in to the Urgent care last week on Monday since my Doctor wasn't in. The doctor there told me to go to the ER and get x-rays of his chest done. At the ER they said that Tristin was the worst that they had seen at his age, his oxygen was low and he had RSV bronchitis. So we spent monday thru friday in the Hospital while Gavin was with his Dad. Then on Saturday after we got out of the hospital Gavin was admitted and Tristin stayed with his Dad.
I guess it is true what they say about everything happening in doubles. But I really can't complain too much because I ate really well and it was delivered to me. It was kind of like a little vacation. Only having one really not that much easier, you are already doing it for one so it isn't that much more to do it for two. Man I really missed my kids when they weren't with me.

It snowed while we where at the hospital really bad, I think it was like 9 inches but I could be wrong. So we didn't get many visitors with Gavin, which just means that we didn't get any pictures of him in the hospital. Luckily my sister Bailey and her son Kooper where able to come up from Utah and she came and kept me sane while I was in the Hospital the first week with Tristin.

sick and tired

I really like the cleavage on this one, But of course Tristin is sleeping

Gavin is awake and alert like always

Tristin looking pretty tired

Gavin Suprised!! He is always getting startled

Today the Boys are one month old I am so excited for themt o be one month old. They have changed so much since they were born. I took some pictures the other day it shows a little of their personallity.
We where just finally getting used to the boys and we had a schedule. Then Tristin came down with a cold, it was just a little cough then yesterday it got worse. I tried to call the Dr. but of course she is leaving early. Today we finally got a humidifier so hopefully it will help so I can get some sleep.
I was so worried every time he coughed that I haven't been able to get any sleep. I was getting at least 5-6 hrs but it has been more like 2-3 hrs the last couple of days.

Red & Blue

Red & Blue help me to tell which babies things are which, it helps a lot. Red is Tristin's unless there is no red then it is any other color but blue. Blue is Gavin's which pretty much every thing has at least one blue color.
We went to the doctor and she said that the babies need to gain more weight. So we have started to give the babies formula once or twice a day. It is nice because everyone else can help feed the babies! Both the babies are in the 6 lbs range now. Tristin is 20 inch, and Gavin is 20 2/3 inch.

I was Tagged(5 things you didn't know about Aron)

I was Tagged awhile ago but I have been so busy it seems like I have no time for anything. So I am supposed to share 5 things that no one knows about Aron.

1) Aron loves to travel and has gone to a lot of different places, It isn't the place that make it interesting it is what Aron is able to do with the time he is in each new place. He always has fun no matter what it is and can always finds the best things to do in each new place. He is a very fun person and loves to play.

2) Aron loves Animals!!! He has owned many different Animals, usually unique ones that no one else has. Currently he has an Alligator in a pond he made for him on his backyard, a huge snake that has it's own cage made out of the side of his built in Entertainment center and he has had many Blue Pitbulls, but is down to just one now. At one time he had Paranas. He mother recently informed me that he had lots of animals that he broght home over his years.

3) Aron has a house that he has been working on for the last couple of years and has made it a awesome Pad. He is forever cleaning it and keeping it up to date. He take pride in the work that he has done to it. He would be great at flipping houses.

4) Aron is a caring person that likes to give to people. He is easy going which helps, because he is very tolerant of people. If he is able to help someone he will. But he is level headed and never lets people take advantage of him. I think I like these things that most about him!!!

5) Most people already know this but he was determined to train as a UFC fighter and did all the things that he needed to make it happen, he is good at that. So two months ago after a month of training he fought a good fight but lost. But nothing deters him and is now training for another fight coming up in just a month or two. If you ask me I would never want to do what he does but I support him 100%.

I don't think that he ever reads this but I hope that he knows that I appreciate the things that he is willing to do and the person that he is. He is a great dad, and helps when and where he can.
