Friends!  I have not abandoned you!  Even though it has been a week since I've last posted, it has been one of the craziest, BEST weeks of my life.  I have so much to update everyone on, which I will work on doing in a few posts.

Let's start with the best news... the babies are here!!!!  And.. we have one sneaky little trickster on our hands, because Baby Girl was actually a Baby BOY!  Yes.  That was a shock to say the least.  So our little girl name, Annabelle Grace, was not going to work.  So poor little guy was just "Baby B" for the first day of his life while we pondered his new name.  Mark and I knew right away though, but just wanted to sleep on it to make sure.


Henry Alan and Parker Alan
Born October 29, 2013
4:21 and 4:23 p.m.

Henry came in at 5 pounds, 9 ounces (it's his big head), Parker at 5 pounds, 3 ounces

It's been a whirlwind of a week.  I am home now, but both boys are still in the NICU at the hospital.  I have so much to share, so I'll start updating more on the blog today.  But in the meantime, they are doing great, we are in love, and I'm trying to catch up on all that nesting I missed while I was on bed rest and before they come home... hopefully soon!

Thank you to everyone for the prayers, good thoughts, gifts, calls and visits while I was waiting out these little guys' arrival.  I can't believe I missed the entire month of October inside those hospital walls. But it was 100% worth it!

  1. Hi Parker and Henry!
    Welcome to the world little ones! You'll just have to convince daddy to give mommy a little sister so she can use that adorable baby girl name! Glad you guys stayed put, so you are going to be healthy! Can't wait to meet you!!
