Jake & Ben at 5 months old
Here are my big guys!!! Jake is over 14 pounds and Ben is over 10!!! They are doing very well and keeping us on our toes! Ben is still on his meds. for his premature lungs. However, after a visit to the pulmonologist this week we have decided to start to wean him off of his mediacation which is very exciting! His reflux is almost gone too! He is eating well and trying really hard to catch up to his big bro. The big news with Jake is that he rolled over at about 4 1/2 months! They are both all over the place these days!
As for Kevin and I, we are doing pretty well. We did have a major set back with our new house. We were suppose to move into our new home last week but a pipe froze in the upstairs bathroom and flooded most of the house. We have been pretty bummed about the situation. My gracious parents continue to house our big family and we will stay here while construction is under way. The floors, drywall, etc. have to all be replaced so we will be here for a few more months. No matter how stressed out we are..all it takes is one look at my little angels and it melts the stress away!!! We have a new lease on life since we were blessed with Ben and Jake.
Hope all is well and you are staying warm!!
Lots of Love, Danielle, Kevin, Ben and Jake

Oh My! Those two boys are adorable and they are definately going to break some hearts. I think Jake looks like Kevin and Ben looks like Danielle. I am so glad to hear they are doing well. I have definately enjoyed all of the pictures and watching them grow.

WOW!!! I have been waiting anxiously to see more pics of those guys--they look great!! I can't wait to see them in person next month....we are all very excited. I am so sorry to hear about your house. I actually thought you were already in it after the New Year. Hopefully, it gets fixed up soon. Send my love to them all!!!!

Just wanted to send you a quick note and let you know how wonderful your blog has been to read. I found it from the ttts foundation site. My sister is expecting twin girls (26 wks Monday). It has been wondeful to check where you guys were at every week and see your hope and progress your boys have made. Your boys are just beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing your story.
