Welcome to our most precious Elle Taylor and Taylee Jean Smith!

After 36 and 1/2 weeks, millions of injections, ultrasounds, exams, and lots of anticipation, and a bout with Cholestasis in the final 24 hours, our beautiful daughters Elle and Taylee entered this world at 10:22 PM on 12/29/09 by C-section. They each weighed 5lbs 7 oz and had APGAR's of 9/9 and 9/8. Melissa did great and was an instant Mom! The babies are perfect, healthy, but pretty sleepy so far and trying to learn how to chow down. The outcome is better than we could have ever hoped for. As you can see, they are pretty dang cute!

Nesting...or trying not to go stir crazy!

I though I would share with you my new found hobby...crocheting. My aunt Bonnie came over a week ago to show me some of the basic stitches. I started with a washcloth, which did not turn out very well I must admit. I decided to move on to a hat to see if I had made any progress. I am happy with the way they have turned out, now I am just hoping that they will fit.

33 weeks

Well I can't believe that tomorrow we will be at 33 weeks. I can't believe that I have been at this whole bed rest deal for 2 weeks now. I promised some of you that I would give you the update after my last appt (Tues). It turns out that I don't have much to report. The doctor decided not to check me based on the fact that it could start me into having contractions again. The non-stress test showed that I am still contracting, but not nearly as much as I was when I was admitted to the hospital. So, I am just continuing with the same medication and have a follow up appt. on Tuesday.
