They’re here!

July 27th, 2008 by Allan · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of our twin girls, Lydia and Hadley Lydia and Hadley announced their impending arrival late in the day, but carried on a tradition in their Mother’s family of being born on family member’s birthdays and waited until their Grandfather Carscaddon’s birthday, following each other quickly at 1:37 and 1:38 […]

Good day

July 21st, 2008 by Eleanor · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Lots of good news today.  I’m officially 35 weeks and all is looking well – so well in fact that my doc said I could go off of bed rest!  The girls could still come any day, but I’ve passed some important milestones so there is less of a risk if they do.  Plus apparently, there is murky […]

This is only a test

July 20th, 2008 by Allan · Comments Off on This is only a test · family

There are supposed to be improved WYSIWYG image mangement features, so I am playing with those. What to say… Oh yeah, we have a grandfather clock: Eleanor’s grandmother passed away last year, and when her children were dividing up the furniture, we had a chance to get this clock.  Since we both think that the […]

Today I’m officially 34 weeks – still much too early for babies to arrive (stay in there girls), but not scary-early like 32 and 33 weeks felt.  Mentally, I feel much better.  I went to the doctor today and it looks like the girls will arrive before their official August 5 due date.  Of course, no […]

Team Effort

So this bed rest thing is harder than I would have thought.  I suppose I should have known it wouldn’t be easy since relaxing is not part of my core skill set.  It’s amazing how much I took for granted – watering plants, doing laundry, general picking up, fixing meals, etc.  All of those things […]

Bed rest

July 4th, 2008 by Eleanor · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

It’s official.  I’m on bed rest.  The series of things that got me here has been a little scary.  I’m hoping to just write this once and then I can direct people here or cut and paste so that I don’t have to keep describing it.   I was feeling really good toward the end of […]

Getting ready

July 4th, 2008 by Allan · Comments Off on Getting ready · family

Eleanor’s Mom was here last weekend and for the first part of this week, and worked with Eleanor to help get things ready for the twins’ arrival (though not too soon, we hope).  Things are in pretty good shape– they washed all the clothes (new gifts and all the clothes that people were so nice […]
