Adelyn and Briar are home!

Adelyn Kole and Briar Lynley were born on July 1st, 2009.

It's been a long time since I've posted anything. I finally have some great news to share. Our sweet Briar came home on July 8th, just one week in the NICU! She was a bit lazy at first but has been on the fast track to gaining and growing since we've been home. She weighed 5lbs 7oz at her 2 week check up. Everything has been in normal baby mode around our house, but that is changing.
Adelyn was released from the hospital today July 20th. It was a wonderful day for our family. Adelyn weighed only 3lbs 14.2oz. She is making wonderful progress though. Eating like a champ. She will be a chunk just like Briar in no time.

Of course, Konleigh and Peighton are excited about having another baby in our house but I expect that will change in time. Jealousy always rears its ugly head when a new person is welcomed into the family much less 2 new people. Only time will tell.

Jake and I are on a slight high right now. Having our family all home together is a blessing. Like Jake always says, "we discussed having a third child but never even talked about having 4" but I truely believe our family is complete now. Koko, Peighters, Adelyn & Briar will someday know how lucky they are to have sisters to share their lives with. Children are the true blessing of this world.

Welcome home sweet girls. We are overjoyed to have you in our family! Love, Mom
