A lot has happened in a year.


Wow it’s been almost a year since I last posted. Kendrick is sitting up no problem, crawling with ease, and pulling himself up to standing all the time. Just got done with a bout of Roseola, but hopefully today he is back to normal.


Donovan is a little pistol. Doing great but doesn’t eat well yet or sleep through the night ever. Loves his brother, but the sibling rivalry has started already. He likes to get up in Kendrick’s grill a lot and just generally annoy him. All in all, both are doing great, and they keep us on our toes.

So there is your quick yearly update. OK, hopefully that’s not true, I hope to post more as my free time decreases.


After 3 weeks in the hospital, Kendrick is home.


Kendrick just kept kicking ass and taking names until they had no choice but to send him home. I’m so proud of him, and so glad our entire family is together at home. Note: he came home at 4lb 1oz, still really tiny.

Boo joins Smidgen on his journey.


Kendrick Jack joined us on July 4th! Shannon was calling him boo while he was in the womb, and sure enough he scared us on the 4th. We didn’t know until later, but Shannon had a placental abruption and was rushed away for an emergency c-section. Later we were told that if we got there 10 minutes later, they may not have been able to save the baby. Thank god everything worked the way it did after her water broke.

Kendrick is doing very well. He was born 32 weeks 3 day, and weighed 3 pounds 10 ounces, almost 1 pound heavier than Donovan. This Wednesday will be 3 weeks in the hospital, and it’s looking like he could come home next week! Welcome Kendrick, to Smidgen’s journey.
