Baby Girls are Here!

Callie and Talyor Merritt arrived this afternoon...2 pds 8 oz and 2 pds 11 oz. Mom and babies are doing great. One of the babies is having some minor respiratory problems and the other is breathing on her own. They are looking at a 2 month stay in NICU at Cabrini. Christene and Jim will be staying in guest lodging so they can watch their baby girls grow and get healthy! Please keep the prayers coming :)

Prayers Needed

Please pray for Jim and Christene Merritt. Christene is 27 weeks with twin girls. She went into premature labor on Thursday. They were able to stop her contractions. As they were wheeling her to her car this morning she had a major contraction and when checked, she was 4 cm. She was taken by ambulance to Cabrini for a possible delivery. Cabrini has a awesome NICU. I will update when we hear more.

Celebrating 5 Years

On July 10 Paul and I will celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary! Its hard to describe how it feels when you meet "the one", but I knew it on our first date. He caught my eye with his smile and how we could spend hours talking about anything. One thing I loved about him was how much he loved his Chloe! His whole face would light up talking about her. Being that I loved kids, I knew that he would be such a great dad someday. So I was sold...hook, line, and sinker! I was so happy when after a year of dating he asked me to marry him!

Five years later, I am truely blessed and so happy. Our family started out with two dogs and now we have a beautiful baby boy! Our Cole man is the center of our world. I am so lucky to have such an amazing family! Life is wonderful :)

We are taking a trip to San Antonio this week. I am a little nervous because it will be our first trip without Cole. But, we decided when we got married that we would take a trip every 5 years. Someone once told me that you have to make memories. So, here we go!
