Photostory Friday-Momo Twin Meeting

Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeekA few months ago I had the chance to meet a long-time friend and her twins. She and I “met” in a forum for parents of monoamniotic twins. Momo twins are really rare, so having a connection with someone that had experienced what I had was really special……vital, really.We decide a […]

Wordful Wednesday-The Twins

One of the greatest parts of blogging is meeting wonderful people. One of my older blogging pals (as in she is one of my first blogging acquaintances) is Tammie. She has TRIPLETS (and NO lines on her face-can you see my the envy on MY face?) and is a photographer here in Southern CA. When […]

NICU terms every parent of a preemie knows

1. Ventilator-breathes for the baby when they are too sick to breathe by themselves. I cried when I found out Jacob had to be vented. 2. Surfactant-drug given to help babies lung mature if they are having respiratory distress. 2. CPAP-a step down from the ventilator, this is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, or mechanical ventilation. […]

He’s following the leader…..{John walking}

John walked tonight. A lot. Today I was by the stairs and I saw Jacob walk around the corner from the kitchen, down the hall and into the family room. So weird. Now John is following his lead. John is so cute. He claps for himself after he reaches his goal. They’re OFF! Oh, and […]

Jacob is walking!

Jacob John with his walking machine…. Tonight we were over at the Bush’s house and Susan was playing with Jacob. Ryan called to Jacob and he walked over to him with a unique side step, but like he’s been doing it for awhile. I couldn’t believe my eyes. After he realized that he walked across […]


Everyone asks me about Jacob and John’s personality differences. Their temperaments are quite similar though, and until recently there were alot more similarities than differences. Here’s a few new developments though: *Jacob is our more aggressive twin when it comes to toys and food and basically anything he wants. As you know from a previous […]

Toe biting fetish?

I’m starting to wonder about Jacob. Does he have a toe biting fetish, or what? When we were in CA my sister was feeding her baby in her high chair while Jacob was standing up and playing by Sofia’s feet. All of a sudden, Sofia starts crying and there’s Jacob standing innocently by with her […]

Laid to rest! {Jacobs CT scan results}

No, no one died, the results from Jacob’s CT scan came in. Normal range. Not a huge surprise. But, I’m relieved all the same. Update: The doctor called today and went into the report in more detail with me. Yesterday’s report was from the nurse. Anyway, NORMAL, but his parietal bones are asymetrical. So, in […]

The stats are in….{twins at one year}

Jacob and John had their ONE YEAR well check this afternoon, accompanied with 4 shots each. The weight gap has widened, and Jacob is now a half a pound heavier than John. Both boys are holding strong in the 10th percentile for weight and height (you’d never guess it by holding them though….they feel pretty […]

It’s official! The twins turn ONE!

John really wanted the cake Jacob enjoyed his cupcake……a lot! One of our cowboys (Jacob) They are ONE! We celebrated the boys first birthday with a themed party at Rachelle’s house. We had a barnyard party that turned out really well. The twins wore plaid shirts, jeans and cowboy hats (for about 30 seconds, that […]

bath time

Jacob John and Jacob John I LOVE the look and smell of clean babies…..

Our momo’s are going to be ONE!

I can’t stop thinking about the passage of time and that our little momo’s are going to be ONE on Thanksgiving. I thought I’d post a few pictures of them “then” and “now”(OK, THAT didn’t work, will try later) and share “our story” that I have posted on monoamniotic.org, a site that has been very […]

the greatest discovery – {the twins and toilet paper}

Need I say more? Toilet paper, AND their bottles? (Jack on left, Jacob on right)
