Together Again!!!

We got to put the babies together for 30 minutes over the weekend!!



Our First Family Picture

The Howells When we unwrapped the babies to see what they would do, it was hilarious!!! Baby limbs were everywhere... Poking each other, sucking on each other, pulling each other. Here is just a small video clip of what it was like. I LOVED having them all together. It pooped them out, but it was sooo worth it.

    Enjoy each moment, and let us know how we can best support you!
