Snow babies

After months of prayer, reflection and preparation, Hugh and I have decided to transfer our remaining two embryos. We're excited and anxious. After not being able to have children - to have a healthy boy and girl seems like it should be enough. We frequently say that we have already hit the jackpot of life with our precious babies. And yet the idea of Kate and Connor's brother or sister not having a chance at life is incomprehensible... and so we are trying again.

Since both of our snow babies are frozen together, we have to take both at the same time and have the risk of having twins again. The Doctor asked us what we'd do if we ended up with a second set of twins, and all I could think was that God has a sense of humor and we'd have to laugh.

A Boo Boo

Connor was walking around with a book in his hand (he just loves books!) and he tripped and fell. Unfortunately - he hit his nose and ended up with a bloody nose and lot's of tears. Hugh was comforting him, when Kate came over to see what was happening. Hugh asked Kate to get Connor his favorite blanket, and she went right over and picked up his blue blanket (not her pink one) and brought it to him. How cute is that???

Nose and Eyes

Today, Kate and Connor both showed off how they are learning to understand new words. You can now ask them "where is your nose?" or "where is you ear?" - and they can both point to the correct place. Even more fun for them seems to be pointing to MY nose (ok, and excitedly hitting it too).
