Olivia's 6th Birthday

On Sunday March 22nd my cousin Olivia had us to her house for her 6th birthday party. We had a fabulous time!!. I even played with another baby for the very first time. Until now I never paid any attention to other kiddos or babies....It really worried my Mommy...but at the party I spotted a little baby and crawled right up to her to see who she was and what she was playing with. My Mommy was so happy!!!! I even noticed she was wearing socks (which I DO NOT like to wear) I decided to try to pull them off for her :) She'll thank me later!!

Update on the Twins: I am sad to say that not only did the one twin have a bladder obstruction that was very large (LUTO), but they also have developed Twin to Twin Transfusion. This is a complication that occurs in identical twin pregnancies. Unfortunately we could not save the one twin(B) and we now must wait to see how the other Twin will do. Currently because of the TTTS he also has developed a large bladder and fetal hydrops of the heart. Mommy had surgery last week and hopefully that will help Twin A get better. We were also told that after surgery most babies are born 11 weeks later. WHOA!!! that will only make mommy 28 weeks so we are hoping that she will go a little longer :)

Thank you to Aage, Caren, Auntie Alea, Big Daddy aka:my grandpa (yes.. Mommy hates that name), Auntie Robin, Auntie Danie, the BEST nurse Mary, Granmma Zoo, and everyone else who helped this past few weeks.

Evie, you and Viv would get along famously! She loves to pull of her shoes and socks (but especially the right foot!) and she has been known to spend a lot of time and energy pulling of daddy's socks, too!

Dearest Heather, I am so sad for your loss, and I am so full of hope for Sweet Twin A. I will be thinking of your sweet family with hope, love and faith during this time.

Much Love, Hannah (+Vivian)

I am so sorry for your loss of Twin B, Heather. It sounds like (from your list of helpers) that you have tremendous love and support surrounding you. I hope that the 11 week mark comes and goes and that Twin A will come much later. Thinking of you...

Miss Evie... like you and Miss Vivian, Gracie wasn't a fan of socks or shoes (on either foot!) for a very long time! We went a summer without any shoes or socks and we spent the next two years trying to get them back on!
So very happy to see you interested in other babies! That's a wonderful developmental milestone that I am sure gives your mommy such relief and happiness!

I'm sorry to hear about Twin B, I will pray for twin A. I am currently carrying my 2nd son who suffers from a severe case of LUTO. We had to stop intervention at 22wks and we are carrying to term with comfort care post birth unless the urine results and u/s findings have been wrong.

Stay strong
