Home Sleepy Home

Hello to all from twinsville. Please excuse us for our tardiness in posting. We made it home from the hospital Sunday afternoon grateful for our healthy girls. Bryson was napping when we got home and when he woke up, he came into the living room and once he noticed one of the girls, he looked at us all and put his finger to his mouth to shush us and telling us to be quiet cause the babies were sleeping. How precious is that! He has been eager to help with getting his sisters' pacifiers to them at times and then sometimes I think he wants to put them in the closet so he can get more attention. We are making time for all and although it's a bit tough, we are so blessed and wouldn't change a thing. Stone's reaction was typical of a 13 year old, "man, they are so little". As he held them for the first time, a grin came over his face as to say" I'm your big brother and I'll always protect you". The girls are doing well. Like all newborns, they eat, sleep and poop! Avery is a little more fussier and gassy. They had their first doctor's appointment yesterday and all went well. The objectives as of now for us are to get the girls on the best schedule that will allow mommy more sleep. We don't have all the answers yet, actually not even a few, but we have a bigger Pearce family to do this life with and that's pretty dang cool! Thanks everyone for your prayers. We have had so much support from Hilary's co-workers (go Wolfpack!), our friends, our church family has been amazing in providing meals this week and our family.... We can't even begin to thank you for every moment you have walked along with us up to this point and now the assurance and calm we feel knowing you are just a phone call away. Did you hear that? Yeah that's your phone.... it's us. Heeeeeeeeeeeeeelp!

  1. They are so beautiful!! I can't wait to come meet them. I know how it is to have a newborn so I'll let you guys get settled a bit before we come to visit. Please give the girls kisses for us!

  2. Glad to here things are going well, the routine will come in time. Just don't do what my parents did with my sister's and feed one twin twice!!! they ended up having to keep a written list of who fed when. :)
    There will be an Australian package for the girls in the mail in the next few weeks. I will email when I have sent it so you can look out for it. Lizxx
