Yesterday (10/26) the twins turned two months old. Oh my goodness I can’t believe how fast they are growing up. Things are seriously going by too fast – Ryan and I agree that we both feel like we are living in a fog right now because we are so very busy, but we are trying to enjoy every single minute. Taylor and Emma Grace are doing very well with the new babies. Emma Grace love to help out and she is very good at helping with the babies. She is gentle, and she loves to help me put their passies in their mouth. Taylor states “that he helps by staying out of the way.” Funny little guy!
While the twins were getting their shots today, the sweetest thing happened. Preston went first, and when he started to scream bloody murder his sister immediately started to scream bloody murder. I think she felt his pain.
Length: 21 ½ inches (10th percentile)
Weight: 9 pounds 4 ounces (10th percentile)
Head Circumference: 15 inches (25th percentile)
Length: 22 ½ inches (10th percentile)
Weight: 10 pounds 3 ounces (10th percentile)
Head Circumference: 15 inches (10th percentile)
Did you know that boys and girls have different growth curves? Both twins’ heads measured the same at 15”. I know that is hard to believe that Preston’s is not twice the size of Addison, but I made them measure twice. But Preston is in the 10% percentile and Addison is in the 25% percentile. Interesting isn’t it – I never would have know this if I had not had twins!!!! Makes it all worthwhile.
These two love each other! Even when they are mad they can calm each other down when they are side by side. I love the bond they have, and look forward to watching it grow more closely.

Uncle Aaron came over extra early to go hunting with Ryan and Taylor, and they got a deer. Which was Taylor's first. He was pretty excited.
We love family time!

Memaw, Aunt Gwyn, and Preston. My Aunt Gwyn's daughter Laurie (my cousin) has twin girls. I guess you can say they run in the family!
Memaw and Addison:
I love these pictures - check out Emma Grace's precious little facial expressions:
She loves her daddy!
My handsome big boy!
And for every celebration we must have a Rick's Cake!
Little snake lovie!
On October 9, 2011 the twins were baptized. It was such a beautiful service and Ryan and I felt so very blessed to be able to baptize two healthy babies at just six weeks old. We were reminded how blessed we were with these babies, and we had the opportunity to publicly thank our family, families, and church congregation for their on going prayers for our babies. Without these prayers and support Ryan and I fear where would we would be now. I am so moved by God’s plan for our babies. I don’t know why some of us are blessed in different ways. We tried to deliver our twins at 25 weeks, but luckily the doctors were able to stop my labor, and then the same thing happened at 34 weeks. Only by the grace of God were we able to carry the twins to 37 weeks! Thanks be to God!!!
Reverend Rex Dickey and Addison:
Mommy and Daddy and Reverend Ben Hines. Special story - Rev. Hines has helped baptize all four of our children and he married me and Ryan. He is a very special man in our live and we are so blessed that he shared in this special day with us.
Proof that I do fix my hair, make-up, and wear dresses! It does not happen very often these days, but this was one of those special occasions!
Reverend Susan, Reverend Ben, Reverend Rex:
Love the little outfits that the babies wore, they had matching blankets, hats, and gowns.
G-Daddy, and the babies:
