Korbin & Baxlyn

A year ago today my little "Baby Boy D" and "Baby Girl B" were released from the hospital. I remember it like it was yesterday. We woke up bright and early super excited to be bringing home Kylee and Baxlyn. I called the NICU as usual to see how everyone did over night and the nurses informed me that Miss Kylee had had a recordable brady (she had to be stimulated to breathe) therefore had to stay another 5 consecutive days without having one. As fast as I was bummed, I was happy again when the nurse on the other line said "You wanna take Korbin?!" We were going to leave him behind to stay with Brody as long as possible, but Kylee apparently wanted that role and wasn't quite ready to break free!
Their last group picture in the NICU. We will pretend Kylee's kissin' him goodbye rather that biting him for takin' her place!

I remember as we drove away sitting in the back seat looking down at them thinking "WOW.... they are really ours now. Ours to take care of. No doctors, no nurses, no machines, leads, or monitors - just. us." Bret and I slept with one eye open that night and checked to make sure they were breathing I don't know how many times!

It's so hard to believe it's already been a year.

We love you Baxlyn & Korbin!


  1. So sweet! I'm so glad your babies have been so healthy. You are very blessed!

  2. That was a pretty cool day! I love you both so much!

  3. What a blessing they are. They will always be in my prayers.

    Love all of you.
