 Here I am at 34 weeks pregnant... and HUGE
Here I am right before they hooked me up to all sorts of things.  The Dr decided to induce me because I was dilated to 5 cm at 35 weeks 2 days.
 September 21, 2012 at 11:05 am and 11:16 our 2 little babies entered this world. Hardison Lloyd was first weighing 5 lbs 2 oz. 17 in. and Mckinley Linette was second weighing 5 lbs 1 oz. 17 in. long. Both breathing on their own and very healthy.
Here is a picture of our awesome Dr., Dr. Doug Burgett.

 Here is Mike in his sexy get up! ha ha.
 Our first picture together with the twins. Just moments after they were born.
 They took the twins to the NICU right after they were born. Both were doing really well but Mckinley needed an IV because her blood sugar level was really low. The next day Hardison needed one. They were both off of IV's within the next day and they placed feeding tubes and put them under the lights for Bili Reubon.. Sp? 

 They only let us hold them twice a day when they were under the lights. But at least they were only under the lights for 2 1/2 days.
 One night we had a great nurse in the NICU who let us take the babies down to the windows so that Seppi could see them for the first time! He thought they were adorable (his words) and so tiny. I had envisioned how the moment would be that Seppi met his little brother and sister and it was nothing like this... But he handled them and us being in the hospital way better than I would've ever thought. He's such a great kid.
 FINALLY after 11 days in the NICU, a lot of emotions and traveling back and forth we were able to bring our sweet babies home!
 Corie with Hardison
 Corie with Mckinley
 Mike with both!
 Leaving the hospital with the WHOLE FAMILY!
 This was such a happy moment, Seppi couldn't wait to be a big brother. He tells everyone that he is "the big brother".
 Seppi feeding his baby, whom he has decided to call LOGAN.
 They LOVE looking at each other, we try and let them be by each other like this as much as possible.
 Most of our mornings start like this. Mom and dad feeding a baby and Seppi feeding his baby. We have been all snuggling in our bed all together a lot lately.
 Mike LOVES holding both babies at the same time, it is very sweet.
 in this picture Mckinley is playing with Seppi's hair. ha ha. ALL 3 of my kids are the CUTEST ever!
 Tummy time.
We have been truly blessed. Thank you everyone for your sweet messages, thoughtful service and prayers on our behalf. We are very grateful.

It's been forever since I last posted anything.. It seems like I don't really like taking pictures of myself while I am ever expanding... ha ha
We went to Lagoon with Mike's work party and Seppi had a great time! he LOVED the fast roller coasters and was super social in the lines, saying Hi to everyone and stealing their hearts!

Seppi and Mike really had a fun time together and bonded a lot. It was really great for them.

I came to watch and sit in the lazy river at Lagoon-A-Beach.. But here I am folks.. pregnant with twins at about 30 weeks. maybe 29. Mike had to help me get in and out of my tube but after that I just sat and floated all my cares away. ha ha.

We had a lot of fun. What is more fun than getting into Lagoon for free and enjoying time with your family? NOTHING!!

***In other news, we are finally settled into our new house and loving it. The babies room is ready to roll, and I'm 32 weeks. I am told that they'll induce me at 37 if I don't go on my own. It is crazy to think that this time next month I could be taking care of 2 more babies. AHH, I'm not sure if I'm ready yet. ha ha. Everything and everyone is going and doing well though.***

Summer update!

 We have had a great summer so far. Lots of laughs, friends, family and fun.
 Most days our neighbors will fill up their pool and the kids enjoy a little dip!
 Seppi turned 3... WHAT? I can not believe that he is 3 already. He is such a sweet kid, we feel lucky to have him in our lives, he has changed it for good. We had a fun party, he wanted a "Lightning McQueen, Pajama, Pizza party." How could you say no to that? ha ha.
 His new bike has been his new hobby since then. He loves it. (he usually is wearing a helmet- what kind of parents do you think we are?).
 We went to San Diego with some of our great friends!!! It was a fantastic vacation... full of Sea World, Beach, San Diego Zoo, Golfing, swimming, BBQing, etc. etc. etc.!!!

 Mike graduated!!!! I am so proud of him! It was such a great day! We have wonderful parents and families who have helped us get here!! THANKS.
Other than that, We have had a TON of new changes that have happened and will happen soon. Mike started a new job at RPT, in West Jordan, which he loves. We are having TWINS!!! a boy and a girl in Sept. or Oct. and we are waiting on closing day for a new house in Sandy, UT. Then the whole move out of the village (our home for 6 years... it's bitter-sweet). THATS IT... ha ha. It's crazy how several years will go by with not a single BIG change and others are FULL of them. ha ha. We are really excited though, we just hope that all these transitions go smoothly. Wish us Luck!

Mike is Graduating for the University of Utah on May 4th, 2012.
He will have a Doctorate of Physical Therapy.
He finished his last day EVER on April 20, 2012... He really ENDURED it all!!
Mike has been hard at work for a long long journey and it is finally all paid off and we are so proud of him!
We have been living at the University Village for 6 years (the whole time that we've been married) So this will be so exciting and a big change to move on. It's weird I feel like we are all of a sudden growing up. HA HA.
