Babies Eat, Sleep, Poop and Pose for Photo Shoots

Charles and I are having more fun than we had ever imagined with these two little miracles.  I am so very happy.
Here are a few pictures from the last few days.

Molly comes home!

Wooooooooooooo Hooooooooooooo!

Charles, Macy and I came home from the hospital Thursday evening but Molly couldn't come with us.  They told us they thought it would be the beginning of the week before they handled that. 

Yesterday, when we went to visit Molly at the hospital, we learned that if Molly passed the carseat test and another Jaundice test, she'd be allowed to come home!

They asked Charles and I to take a CPR course and then released us!  More details coming....but for now, click on the scrolling slideshows and it'll get bigger for you.  :) 

Macy & Molly are Here!

Charles and I are "over the moon" with thankfulness and are loving everything about these girls.  The girls came earlier than expected...they were born Monday, May 17 around 7:45 PM.  Macy weighed 5 pounds and Molly weighed 4 pounds 13 ounces.  Molly has been in the NICU since Monday and has worked hard to prove herself in all the areas they were concerned about.  Macy was able to stay in the Newborn Nursery.   We don't have many pictures at all of the two of them together....YET! 

I will post more details later, but look to the right for a scrolling slideshow of pictures.  Click it to make it bigger.

Thanks for caring about what's going on in our lives and I promise to put more pictures and info up soon.

We are hopefully heading to the NICU this morning to pick up Molly and bring her home!  We're waiting on the big phone call!

35 Weeks ---- 9 days to go!!

We had a good visit today.... we got to see the girls on the big screen.  Mrs. Sylvia did our last ultrasound. It is such a treat to have such a kind soul lead you through the ultrasounds.  She estimated that each of the girls weigh 5 pounds and 10 ounces!  They have longggg legs and at least one of them has hair that measured around an inch long!!  That's longer than their Daddy's hair!

The countdown is on....and Momma is R-E-A-D-Y!!!!!

Showers of Blessing Indeed!

I wanted to share some pictures from the showers that generous friends have hosted for us.   

I don't take it lightly at all that friends have been so giving and supportive.  It means the world to me.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Showered by SEAGUL-ians

Showered by friends at Doby's Mill

Showered by Friends and Family

And then, there are a few 'secret angels' out there who have done some mighty generous things 'on the sly'.  I have learned a lot about sacrificial giving and what a thoughtful gesture can mean to someone.  You ladies know who you are, and I am forever touched.

Why Macaroni & Cheese???

The reason for the blog address.......

On the day that I told my students at school about my expecting twins....one of my students, Adrianna, quickly suggested that I could name the babies "Macaroni and Cheese".  The kids (sadly, I know) know how much I like Macaroni and Cheese....so, it was a thoughtful suggestion!

That became the twins' nickname...and it really caught on.  For Christmas treats, I gave the kids a box of mac and cheese.   At the wonderful shower some friends gave me at school, my Principal made deee-licious Macaroni and Cheese in her crock pot!  Wonderful!  On my last day before leaving for bedrest, we had a Stomach Activity which included .... mac and cheese!

Can't Sleep...

It is mighty hard to sleep these days .... trying to get up from a lying position is very much like when a bug is turned over on its back....and can't get up. 

A little bit of an update - when I was at the doctor last, the girls had flipped.  Their heads were both down.  That's a good sign, huh?

Charles and I have almost finished THE LIST :).   I'm so thankful!

There are two bouncy seats in our den and soon to be two swings.  I got the swings from consignment type places....great deals....and they match!

I'm excited to know my sister, Ginger, has bought plane tickets to be down here to help for a few days when Charles goes back to work after the babies come.  I look forward to that! 

Any tips you want to share with me?  I'd love to learn from your experience....click "Comments" below to leave a note. 

Hope you're doing well.  :)
