Where have we been???

Sweet sleeping sick angels!! The twins both tested positive for RSV. That was something that we have been trying so hard to protect them from. Emily has been getting a shot every 28 days to try to prevent it. Because of the hole in her heart they were afraid that it would put her straight in the hospital! But yeah, they are doing surprisingly well. Ben and our neighbor gave them both a priesthood blessing and from that moment on they have been able to eat again and no more throwing up. Emily was hit the hardest by this whole thing, she is suppose to be gaining weight for her upcoming surgery but with all the throwing up she is back down to 9lbs 8ounces!


This was just today both awake and smiling while they look at books. They still cough a lot but are eating better and staying awake for longer spurts! They are the sweetest babies, even sick they sleep through the night! I just had to get up a couple of times to put their pacifiers back in their mouths!! I am so grateful for the priesthood in my home, to be able to see the power and watch my children regain their strength.
Isn't that the cutest pic of them hanging out together, they are quarantined to their room with a humidifier and Vick's plug ins! FOUR MONTHS OLD already!!

How I miss peeking in on those sleeping angels -- soon... I laughed when I saw them hanging out in their crib with their books. They seem so grown up, comparing and contrasting their literary pursuits. Love, Grandma Linda
