Happy Thanksgiving

We are very THANKFUL for our family, friends, blog family, and complete strangers that have been there for us the past year and throughout entire lives at that. Without all of you and all of your support there are so many things that would have seemed impossible. Every single one of you have been their for support no matter what the need, you are all amazing in our book.

Through this blog we have met many wonderful people, people that we hope will be in our lives for a very long time. And to us many of you are still complete strangers, however you support us and have prayed for us, we just cannot thank you enough.

Both of our Mothers came to stay with us/me last year, dropping everything and being here when we needed them. Thank you Mom and Dena. Thank you to my parents for being here for every holiday last year to make things a little easier. We love you all so very much!

All of our family and friends that have been here to help us with the kids, while I was in the hospital and just to support us and feed us once we were home. We love you all so much and are so lucky to have you in our lives...thank you, thank you, thank you.

Most of all we are thankful for our miracles. They have changed our life so much and we can not imagine one day without them. We are so glad they fought to survive and are happy and healthy today.

We wish all of you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving. We have an abundance to be thankful for and are so excited to have this first Thanksgiving with our little miracles.

Love to you all!

Amy-Jo and Brandon

I am very thankful for my caring, loving, smarty pants husband. He is such a fabulous husband and a wonderful father. He keeps me laughing every day no matter what and I need that. Brandon looks forward to the weekend so he can spend time with his children and loves every second of it.

Most importantly he lets me sleep in on the weekend until I feel like getting up. Brandon also makes sure there is always coffee for me as he knows what happens if I don't have something to get me going in the morning, not a pretty picture. He puts up with my quirks or has he would say my OCD every day and I think he doesn't mind it so much.

Brandon helps around the house when he can. He chose to stay in the hospital with me every single night last year, a long time, and helped me any way he could.

I could not ask for a better husband or father for our children. Love you Brandon and I am so thankful every day that you chose to spend your life with me. Daddy we love you so, Logan, Elizabeth, and Madison!!!!

Brandon no longer looks this happy when it comes to Michigan :(

Doing neck stretches with Logan, he is so good with him.

Always smiling, Miss Lizy LOVES her Daddy...

Brandon feeds the kids every chance he gets...he is so great!

All you need is a Daddy and a box...weeeeeeeee!!!!

With Madison after a bath, Daddy despises bath night.

Rattle dance time...YAY!!

The girls love to wrestle with Daddy and climb all over him.

Daddy napping with his Madi Belle and sweet.

The kiddos are always so tired for the last feed.

We are THANKFUL for...

Our beautiful 9 month old babies, as of this past Wednesday. Time sure is going by quickly lately. I tell people every single day and I tell our wonderful children every single day just how blessed we are to have them in our lives. Every morning I wake up and no matter how much sleep I had or how I feel I know everything is going to be wonderful because of our little miracles.

Of course we are behind on getting to their 9 month appointment and will have all their stats posted after that appointment. The girls are army crawling everywhere and are going fast and sitting up on their own. I turn around for a second and one of them will be in the kitchen sitting up, for that second my heart skips a beat as I am TERRIFIED of them falling backwards.

The girls are doing great with eating, we are still working with Logan but they all eat at the same time and approximately the same amount. There are times we have to stop Madison because she would eat until she got sick, trust me on this.

Here are some recent photos...I just LOVE them all so very much! Warning, this may be picture overload.

Madison trying to make a break for the hard floor (their new favorite game).

Lizy chasing Blue. Very determined.

"This is how the rattle dance is suppose to go daddy."

Madison needed some privacy for her reading.

The girls both love to come torture...ummm I mean play with their brother.

Bath time fun. Still Daddy's least favorite activity.

Mr. Happy Pants. He's come a long way since is Mr. Crank Pants days!

Love that grin, anytime the camera is on she is still such a ham.

Madi showing off her sitting skills.

Logan still working on his tummy time.

Umm ya that's the end table, and no they are not suppose to be there.

I swear we used to have some carpet in here, now its just a floor made of toys.

Jumper time!

The girls planning a jail break.

This moose is very tasty thanks for asking.

99% of the day the girls look like this, I wish I was kidding.

Ha! Madi you should see whats on your head you look funny!

A little back massage for Lizy.

Amy-Jo decided to clean out the washer and the case of the missing socks was solved! It was the washer in the study with the candle stick.

We are handsome I know..Brandon obviously wrote this :)

The girls on their way to visit sweet!

Fight for Preemies...

I plan to do a few posts on what we or I am thankful for throughout the month, a late start maybe but today is the perfect day.

Tomorrow (11/17/09) is the day, National Prematurity Awareness Day, that we FIGHT FOR PREEMIES everywhere and thank the March of Dimes. Having our precious MIRACLES so early and so tiny we are thankful every single day that there are people fighting for babies just like them. We are so THANKFUL for the NICU and medical advances that helped me carry them as long as I did and kept them safe in this world when they were still suppose to be cooking away. Please take the time to let others know of today as premature birth is the number one of newborns, you can visit to learn more.

Premature births are taking place every day, it is not something most people expect. If you read all the statistics you can see how this could affect anyone and if you had to go through this wouldn't you want to know that all would be fine?

Below are some of the first pictures of our sweet babies we are so lucky to have been blessed with. Spending any time in the NICU is so scary, every second you wonder what is going to happen next and with every alarm (which seemed to be constant) your heart skips a beat.




Thank you for taking the time to read about National Prematurity Awareness Day. March of Dimes is a cause we have always supported and now do more than ever. We are not asking for any donations just thoughts, prayers, and awareness.

Halloween 09 and more

It may bee a few days late, but here are the cutest bumble bees I have ever seen (no bias at all)! It was a beautiful weekend and we were able to take the kiddos on a walk early in the day.

Madison trying to sting her brother...

Logan looking handsome as ever

Elizabeth and her ever so happy self...

Madisons only thought is, how do I get that camera...

YAY...I finally am free of the bee costume!

Our adorable Madison, her poor chin looks painful from all the drooling.

Mama, why are these on my ears, Lizy in a not so happy moment.

We were so lucky to get away to the Bahamas after months of planning. My parents came down to stay with the kids while we took a little break. Not only were we able to get away, we were also with GREAT friends! Here are a few of our pictures from the trip, Casey did a great post on the trip, click here to see the fun. Love you Gerwers! We were only able to go because we were able to use a time share Brandons family has...Thank you so much!

Love to you all!!
