I am so behind!!!!

Me in the hospital . I'm looking rough but they are sweet.
This is more recent.

Since the boys were born on July 31st I have been so unbelievably busy! Twins are hard but fun.
The boys were born via c-section. I went into the Dr on the 30th and was walking around at 4 centimeters!! So even though I was only 34 weeks he had be come back the next morning for a c-section. This was my first and only c-section. To say I was terrified was putting it mildly. At 7:58 Mr Logan Hansel (family name) Thomas was born. He weigh 5 lbs and 5 ounces. He only got to be the baby of the family for 1 min. At 7:59 Connor Lawrence (family name) Thomas was born weighing only 4 lbs and 10 ounces. I cannot begin to tell you how over the next few day we felt and knew gods love. My babies were premature but never spent a moment in the nicu. They were healthy and beautiful! Over the next several days we had so many visitors. My sister-in-law Sarah really became a huge part of our lives and we became so close. I will always be so thankful for that time together!
Our home life is very different for sure! I am a stay at home mom now. I worked for years so it is defiantly different but I love it. I am here for every smile and when the big kids get home from school and it is amazing. I'm looking forward to all my time with my babies.
Logan has severe reflux so we have had to learn how to deal with that. He is on medication and special formula. It scared us the first time he threw up and choked on it in his sleep, as you can imagine. So we moved to the living room and the boys sleep in their swings. While that doesn't win me any mother of the year awards at least I know he won't choke anymore. I realize now that it will be a struggle to get back in our bed now. ANY TIPS ANYONE HAS IS MUCH APPRECIATED!!!!!! Mr Connor is a laid back baby but very serious. When he does reward you with a smile it melts your heart.
Hopefully I can post a little more often and keep everyone up to date on the babies. We are all so in love with them, they are amazing!!!!
