Hello Everyone

Hello all. Just wanted to let you know that the kids went to the doctor's office today. All three of them are sick. Not to worry it is nothing major just a cold. I just thought I would let everyone know that the girls got weighed today. Lorelei now weighs 13 pounds 8 ounces and Rebecca weighs 13 pounds 9 ounces. Other than being sick everyone is doing well. I hope that all of you are doing well also. Have a nice week.

New Pics

I promised I would provide pics of Kaitlyn when I got them and here they are. Vikki and Jason went to see a specialist in Houston and they told them that she would definitely need surgery, but when she is older. For right now the doctor said that they have a healthy baby and to take her home and enjoy her, but to come back in a month.
As you can kind of get a glimpse of in the pic above Kaitlyn has some long fingers and big hands. My mother always said children with long fingers make good piano players so you never know. On the last ultrasound they did they measured her feet at three inches. Just to let you know newborn booties measure three inches. I think that this just proves that she will grow up just fine and grow into those feet and hands. In the mean time they are very cute to look at. Thanks everyone for all of your prayers and support of this little one. Vikki and Jason have already said that they appreciate it very much. Love you all!

New Arrival

I am sure most of you have heard me talk about my very close friends Jason and Vikki (the people who introduced me to Tony). Well they have struggled to have a child for about two years now. On August 16, 2005 at 2:29 am their baby was finally born. She weighed 6 pounds 3 ounces and was 19.5 inches long. Her name is Kaitlyn Nichole Hall. Now that you all have gone Oohh and Ahh here is the bad news. I am sending out a prayer request. This precious life has joined us with some problems attached. Only hours after her entrance into this world it was found that this sweet child has two holes in her heart. According to Tony all children have these holes while in the womb but they are supposed to close before birth and apparently hers didn't. The doctors are now saying that one of the holes will not heal on its own and they will have to do surgery by the time she is 12 months old. The last we heard they were sending her home tomorrow on an apnea monitor. I ask that you pray for my friends and their family and for this little girl. I am sorry but right now I don't have a picture for you guys to see. I will put one up as soon as I get one. I hope that all is well with all of you.

Update on The Babb Family

Hello everyone just wanted to let you guys know what is going on with us. Tony got a new job with a company called STAT Care EMS. He is still looking for another job but this one will do for now. The girls are growing like weeds. At their last doctor's appointment Lorelei weighed 11 lbs 8 oz and was 22 1/2 inches long, Rebecca weighed 11 lbs 14 oz and was 22 3/4 inches long. They have already gotten too big to sleep in their bassinet in our room so I am currently adjusting them to sleep in their crib.
Lane recently had his 4th birthday. We celebrated it at the fire museum as you can see above. He really had a great time. I am so glad too because I know that things have been a little crazy around here with the girls. I have taken some new pics of the girls which I hope you all have seen but I would like to show you what a big difference there is between now and when they were born. The first picture was taken after they had been in the NICU for a few weeks and they had put them in the same Isolette. You can see how tiny they were. They just looked so very helpless. I am so glad that we were able to have these beautiful little miracles. Everyday they are here is just a wonderful experience. These little girls have definitely added a special light to my life. The second picture was taken a couple of nights ago, if you really look at it you can see that Rebecca has her thumb in her mouth. This is something that she has recently figured out to do. Lorelei continues to stick her entire hand in her mouth. Sometimes it seems like Becca would rather suck on her thumb than her pacifier. Right now it is kind of cute but I am hoping that she will grow out of it. Well that is all for now I hope you all enjoy this site. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
