Our cute kids - personality!

So, we recently got a new stroller. I love it and so do the kids!! However, it brings many more "Ohhhh, cute twins." comments than I expected. We got a new one because Owen really didn't like our other stroller. He was always uncomfortable and couldn't sit in it for very long. He loves our new one! I am just tired of the twin comments. I guess they do look a little like twins, they are only 6ounces apart in weight. Take a look at this picture of them in the stroller, what do you think?
Anyway, they have really been enjoying this stroller. Here are a few pics of them. They are so fun!

I just love them!

Last easter we were still in the hospital with Owen. We were still unsure of when he would be home but we knew it wouldn't be too much longer.
This easter we are just reminded of how blessed we are to have two beautiful baby boys home with us to celebrate the risen Lord.
To celebrate we first colored eggs the monday prior. It was great fun for Kassidy, Matt, Heath, and I lol. The boys are a little too young to really understand what was going on.

Heath and Owen. Owen is having fun coloring

Heath's egg! It says Hill on the other side :)

 Isaiah's egg!

 Owen's egg!

 Owen wanted to play with the eggs! He even broke Isaiah's egg

The pretty eggs!

 On easter sunday we woke the boys up to play with their easter baskets before church.

 The easter baskets!

 Isaiah's Basket

 Owen's Basket

 Owen LOVED the orange eggs :)

 Isaiah was so excited, he just dumped his over

 Isaiah is sooo excited!

These two pictures aren't very good but I had to add them because I think the boys looks sooo similar in these! Don't they?

Owen eating cheerios before church

Next, Heath and I went to church together and then to lunch at Dennys. It was great to spend that time, just the four of us.
Here are a couple pics of the boys in their suits!

 Isaiah wouldn't sit still long enough to get a picture lol

Both my boys!

After lunch we went home and got the kids ready to go to my grandpa's house. Heath had to work and was unable to come with us :(  The boys got to meet a couple more cousins. It was a short time spent with family but we all had fun. Owen didn't feel too well so he did not have any interest in the eggs. You will see in the pictures lol

Owen did not want to get the egg

so grandma had to get it before carson did lol

He really did not care about the egg lol

Isaiah crawled straight to it!

and tried to eat it, shell and all!

Our Tough Guy

Owens battle scar :) A few days ago we took a walk. When we got back I put the boys in the house and went back outside to deal with the stroller. Naturally, they both crawled to the door. The door was open but the screen door was closed. My mom was right there so I wasn't really paying attention to them like I should have been. Well, both boys decide that they are going to use the screen door to stand up. However, this screen door doesn't really lock. My mom and I didn't even think about it. So, both boys put their weight on the screen door . . . not good. The screen door opened and both boys came tumling out. There is a good size step from the front door to the porch. I caught Isaiah before he really hit the porch. My mom caught Owen but it was too late. He scratched his head on the porch. Here are a couple pictures of the damage. Poor guy

He was a trooper. Didn't cry when I washed it with soap and water :)

Owen's Miracle Update

In case there is someone reading this who does not know what Owen's Miracle is, let me give a brief overview.

Owen's Miracle is a branch of Project Sweet Peas. Project Sweet Peas is a non-profit organization which strives to help NICU families in their time of need. They donate gift bags to families with children in intensive care units. Owen's Miracle was started in honor of Owen. We are so blessed to have him home and we just would like to give back to people who are going through what we went through with Owen.

On April 23, 2010 Owen was discharged from the NICU after an 8month stay. This means that Owen has been home for almost a year!! In honor of Owen being home for a year, Owen's Miracle is making its first bag donation to Oakland Children's Hospital NICU. We are currently working very hard to put 40 gift bags together so we can deliver them next friday!! We are so excited for our first gift bag delivery and cannot wait for the many more deliveries we hope are in the future!
