26 week check-up goes well!

Friends and Family,

We wanted to let you all know that the appointment went really well this morning. We are so excited to have made it this far with virtually no complications. God has chosen to be gracious to us in spite of our lack of faith on a daily basis. He continues to reassure and remind us that we HAVE to trust Him through this process.

Please continue to pray for safety for the boys for a few more weeks. 28 weeks is the next big mark, but we would love to get to 30-32 for a very safe delivery.

We have so much to be thankful for this week. Our boys are doing wonderful, and God provided for them last night with an awesome shower put on by some of Jen's co-workers. It was such an encouragement to have so many come out to support us. Everyone has been so generous with their time and resources and we are very thankful for that.

We have had a lot of people offer to help us out in different ways once the babies arrive. So many, in fact, that it is difficult to remember everyone. So, in the next week or two, I am planning to post a list of things that we anticipate needing help with once we get to bring our boys home. I am going to ask all of you who are interested in helping to e-mail me at that time with what you are willing to help with from the list. (or anything else you think of) Then, as our needs arise, we will have a list of names and phone numbers to call. Now, please dont think this means that you cannot turn us down when we call, we realize everyone is busy, but it will at least give us a good list of names/numbers when the going gets tough.

Thank you all so much for your prayers! We are so thankful for how well things have gone so far.

We got the best look so far at one of the boys faces today at the appointment, check it out!

Presh picture of the face! I think he looks like you, Jen. :) Just kidding, I can't tell at all. I am terrible at that stuff.

Hope you had a Merry Christmas!
