Boys are 2 months

We made it to 2 months with these little fellas. It certainly hasn't been easy but they are smiling now and that's when things start to get fun. They are such a happy addition to our family!

Anna Ruth's 4th Birthday

I'm still in disbelief that Anna Ruth is 4 years old. It is SO hard for this mama to believe. I think I may want to keep her this age forever, she is so much fun!

We decided to celebrate her birthday at the Hands on Children's Museum with her cousins. They had a blast! We then went over to Nana and Pappy's house for pizza, cake and every little kids favorite- presents. 

On her actual birthday, Anna Ruth got to celebrate at school. We took cupcakes for the class and her teachers went out of their way to make her day special.

Birth of our Boys

June 2, 2016 our boys made their entrance into this world. I was scheduled to have a c-section on Monday, June 6th but they decided to come on their own terms. My water broke that Weds night and they were born at 2:07 am  and 2:08 am on Thursday morning. I labored for a good long while before they got everything ready for the emergency c-section. It was certainly a night I will never forget!

We waited to share the names we had selected until they were born...for various reasons. But, we had their names selected for awhile. Clint wanted to see the boys before we decided who was going to be who. Baby A came first and we knew immediately that he was going to be Bond Scott. Baby B, Sullivan Lawrence quickly followed. Both were considered premature because they were born at 35.5 weeks. Bond was 6lbs 3oz and Sullivan was 4lbs 11oz. Clearly, Bond had been stealing a little food from brother!

All my prayers were answered because neither had to spend any time in the NICU. My sweet boys were finally here!

Such a different experience from Anna Ruth's c-section
