I love this picture! Joseph and his oldest nephew Brett had a wonderful time hanging out together and getting to spend some quality time. Brett loves to fish so they went to Castaic and were able to catch some good trout. they had one good day weh nthey caught the maximum and one day when they caught nothing. I guess thats the way that life goes. It didnt matter to them what they got it was just being able to hang out!


Christmas has come and gone. It was a very special and buisy Christmas this year. Joseph's parents, sister and nephew came from South Carolina to California to visit us and meet the babies for the first time. The top picture is my mother in law Margaret holding both Ethan and Bridget. Christmas morning was wonderful! We went to my partents house and took losts of pictures thanks the my father in law David. We all recieved and gave so many wonderful presents and had a really fun time habging out together thanks to Rock Band! Next year will be a crazy one I feel like I need to start preparing now. Lol!

My Birthday!

Yesterday was my birthday and it was a great day. I am 28 years old now (I cant believe it). I celebrated the day on Sunday with my family, with a great dinner and cupcakes. I got some really great gifts from everyone. Then yesterday the doorbell rings and this beautiful flower arrangement arrived for me. I looked at the card at it was from Joseph, Ethan and Bridget to the best mom in the world! It really was wonderful. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband who loves me so much and was really made to be a dad. Its fantastic to see him with the babies and to have him be so comfortable with them. What a wonderful birthday to be so loved and cared for!! I cant ask for anything more :)

Our story

Bridget and Ethan are the joys of my life. I love being home with them every day. It is such a gift to have them home and healthy. It has been a very bumpy road to get here. when I was only 24 weeks pregnant I went to the hospital having pre-term labor. They were fortunate to be able to stop the labor at that time but I was told that I was going to remain in the hospital for the remainder of my pregnancy. This was Aug 28 and the babies were due Dec 9th! we new that they would be coming earlier than that but they wanted to hold off as long as possible. Well the labor continued to happen and with the help of a lot of medication (magnesium sulfate) they were able to stop it every time, but I was very sick. We hung on for a few weeks and then at 26 1/2 weeks Bridget's water broke. My care stayed the same as I stayed on bed rest. finally at 29 1/2 weeks they couldn't stop the labor any longer and it was time. By a miracle Joseph was already on his way to the hospital to visit me in the middle of the afternoon and was just able to make it as they ran me down the hall to delivery. At 3:45pm Sept 26, 2007 Bridget Rose Wilson was born. She was 2 pounds and 6 ounces. She came out crying which is amazing so early. The doctors quickly started to work on her but they were nice enough to let Joseph come over and take some pictures of her so he could show me. She was a tiny little fighter. She was moving all around and trying to pull out her breathing tubes. At 3:46 Ethan Joseph Wilson was born. He was 3 pounds. He came out crying as well and Joseph took pictures to show me. It was wonderful to see them safe and doing so well. They rushed them off to the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) and I went off the recovery. When they were then transferring me from recovery to my room for the night I asked when I would be able to see the babies. the nurse said probably the next day when I can get out of bed. At that time one of the neonatologist was there and gave then permission to take me into the NICU at that time. They are all so surprised because they never let people do that. I was very lucky to have that experience. So I got to go in and see my beautiful babies for the first time! It was so wonderful, it got me through the night until I was able to go the next day to visit them. Ethan spent 59 days in the NICU and Bridget spent 66 days.
