Hello! It's Jo Ann. Sorry it has been so long since I've posted! As you can imagine life has changed so much for us in the last few weeks!! Wow! What a blessing!! I want to say how grateful we are to you all....we want to thank you all for your prayers, thoughts, cards, phone calls, visits, gifts and wonderful meals. You guys have really allowed us to just enjoy this time with our new family..the Crim 6 pack! It's so funny to think we went from a family of 2 to 6 in less than 5 minutes!!! Dr. Conrad..we love you and appreciate you beyond words...you took on this high risk pregnancy knowing that God would see us through....I appreciate your prayers and your expertise....you are not only an amazing ob/gyn but an amazing surgeon! THANK YOU FOR HELPING US TO HAVE THESE WONDERFUL BABIES!! (And yes...your Misson Impossible theme music for the surgery was fitting!) The surgical team really went above and beyond the call of duty...you guys are incredible!! I will just say that the birth of our babies was an experience like no other...first of all it was super easy...and then the sounds of our babies crying..WOW .it still brings tears to my eyes now....every mom wants to hear that sound....but when you are told that you may not hear that with your preemies and you do....you just thank God for the sweetest sound ever heard! We also want to thank Huntsville Hospital. We had the best experience there! Our nurses were incredible! Thanks for keeping me partially sane while I was waiting for the birth of our little ones! Debbie and Kristy, we really enjoyed seeing you guys every day! Thanks for bringing a smile and encouraging us daily! Debbie, the babies look adorable in thier outfits you made!! We also want to thank all the NICU staff as well....you not only took care of our babies...but taught us how to as well....THANK YOU FOR HELPING US TO GET OFF TO A GREAT START!
I am loving every minute of being a Mommy! I have already told Benjy that we need more babies...lol! Of course we are sleep deprived...but I can sleep when they no longer want me to hold them and cuddle them...or when they get 50!! I am just overwhelmed at how blessed we are...and that these are actually OUR babies!! I want to remember all the little sounds and the expressions they make! Hopefully we will have more pictures posted soon for you guys! The babies are changing so fast....by the time we get one picture posted they have a new look! Anna Claire is our first born and our little diva....she looks just like her daddy...but we are HOPING she will act like her mommy!! Price came second...he is our sweet patient boy...he looks like his mommy and fortunatly acts just like her too...lol!! Our third born baby is Finn....who is growing way too fast!!!..he was 6 pounds and 4 ounces at his last doctors appointment which as 10 days ago...he is getting heavier and heavier by the day!!...He is my alarm clock...he lets us know when it's getting close to feeding time..and he also has his Nana wrapped around his little finger...she can not stand if he so much as grunts and she runs to him! Our little man is Carter....who was 4 pounds 15 ounces 10 days ago....he eats like a mad man!!...and is our patient little charmer...he is going to be our ladies man! The nurses all wanted to take him home...guess we will have to nail his windows shut like his Dad's had to be nailed shut to keep him from sneaking out with his ladies...haha! It's fun to watch thier personalities develop...we hope we keep our two patient boys and Finn and Anna Claire will learn to be like them...:)! Well speaking of Finn...he is letting me know that it is feeding time....lol...I LOVE IT.....BEING A MOM IS INCREDIBLE!!
