It's been a week since we have been home!

With the twins already! Things are going well. Probably a little easier for me to say though, or let me just speak for myself. The nights are still a little bit hard in the sense that you don't get straight sleep, but I think that we have had more good nights than bad nights. Again, I can only speak for myself!

The Girls are doing well. They were born a month early, but they seem to be adapting well to the outside world. I can see some change in their faces already, and like I said, we are just over a week with them. It's going to go by quickly, I know. I am going to end up with pretty much three weeks off of work when every thing is said and done. I don't know if that is good or bad. For me, it's probably a good thing! Being off of work is always great! Right now, or probably every night, I dread thinking about going back to work. I need to hit that lotto soon!

Raymond has been super fantastic with these girls! I don't know what to say about it. He is affectionate towards them, and just great. It's a little tough to try to explain to a three year old that you can't really handle premature newborns, but still we try. We really missed him while we were at the hospital for those four days. He did some growing on us too! He either hit a growth spurt, or he just looks huge now compared to the Girls, maybe a little of both.

Most of my time right now is trying to keep Raymond occupied. I think I am doing a good enough job, but then I feel a little bad that I am not spending some time with the girls either. I know that right now we are still trying to figure things out and that it probably will work out in the end, at least I hope so. For now, I will just keep on doing what I can, and doing my best to help out as much as I can in the early morning hours.

It's been cool so far, and I am sure that it will continue to be a learning process and more fun as time goes on! Man, it's just about October already?!?! Wow! It's almost christmas time! Watch, I am not joking!

Tomorrow I will chime in with quick hits and random crap!

Tomorrow could be a big day...

...maybe...maybe not. Somehow I think that we will end up waiting yet another week or so which wouldn't be a bad thing for the babies, but part of me is a little eager for them to meet all of us.

I took the day off of work. We are going to be at doctor's appointments from like 1:00 until about 3:00...I am just guessing. I am going to have to get up and get ready bright and early. In case you didn't know, while Ruby went on the weekly doctor visit, her doctor told he to bring her bags, "just in case"! Yikes! Exciting to hear for sure, whether or not something actually happens still remains to be seen. Just the same, I am charging my iPod, my iPhone, and our digital camera....

I am sure to be busy tomorrow. I have the alarm set early even though I am not going to work. I have to pack my bag, get the car seats set in the Xterra, and then a lot of little cleaning to do. I am sure to update my facebook throughout the day, so be on the lookout! We will definitely see what tomorrow brings.

It's been an exhausting two weeks with a lot of things going on. Heavy hearts, minds, and long work weeks came crashing in a bit. Very weird week, but a week that makes you think about how things can change your life in a blink of an eye. For the good, and for the bad. Make sure to hug a loved one, tell someone that you care about them and just be glad to wake up in the morning and go through a normal day. Having said that, I am still hesitant to say that knowing that someone we now is laying in a hospital while their loved one just isn't the same person. Because of this, I choose to listen to Pearl Jam all day tomorrow as a sort of "tribute" to someone on all or our minds. Maybe you can too?!?!

Random Hits....

Well, the Texans came out flat on their face to start off the 2009 Football season. I hope that they can bounce back and not start 0-4 and ultimately 8-8 yet again. This town will turn on them very fast, if they haven't already. About the only bright spot was first round pick Brian Cushing. He played intense and was in on a couple of tackles! Let's all hope that the rest of the defense and team took notice and do the same.

The U of H Cougars are ranked number 21 after upsetting number 5 Oklahoma St in their own house! It was a great victory. They have a HUGE game in two weeks as they take on Texas Tech at Robertson Stadium on National, Primetime Television! If that place isn't sold out and absolutely insane, something is wrong! I wish I could go, but I might be a little busy and/or tired around then.

Raymond told me the other day, "My house is broken." It is indeed son, it is indeed.

Well, I think I will call it a night as I prepare for a long and maybe eventful day tomorrow! Be on the lookout for updates via the ol' facebook tomorrow!
