Let me just say that I have never been able to juggle. I have tried and tried throughout the years with no success. I throw three objects up in the air, and feel very lucky if I can catch just ONE! That is how I kinda feel right now...

Brian is back at work full-time and the help is gone. It's all me during the day with the two little ones. Feeding times are definitely the most chaotic! It's kinda like walking into a tsunami at times. This is by far the most challenging and rewarding work I have ever done. I am loving it...even though it can be stressful at times. Brian is fantastic! He helps me until the minute he walks out the door in the morning...and the second he comes home at night.

Growing and Growing

Here are a few random photos of Lila and Lincoln. They are sweet, sweet babies. Lila is definitely the more verbal of the two. We have given her the name Lila-bear as she grunts, moans and stretches all day. Lincoln is very alert and chill most of the time. When he is awake, his big blue eyes just wander around and take in the views. They are sleeping at the same times throughout the day and night. Our blessings are infinite!

Lincoln.....Meet Lincoln

So today was the day that the big Lincoln met the lil' Lincoln.  Karla and I had two of our great friends visit from Yakima and meet the two newest Swishers.  

It was quite an eventful time.  Lincoln volunteered to change Lila's diaper, and upon lifting her shirt, her umbilical stub flew off.  Lincoln said, 'Oh no, stuff is falling off!'  (It was just about to come off anyway.)  The look on his face was quit priceless.  Timi brought over great photos of the kids, and once again as proud parents we were able to see just how special these two are.  

It was great to see Lincoln and his little namesake in the same room.  Awesome!

Thanks guys for a great afternoon and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Let it Rain...

We are waist deep in dirty diapers here at the Swisher house.  Here is picture of Brian's reaction to the first time he got peed on.  Lila had the honor of his baptism by urine!  :)

Baby Mug Shots

If you would like to see the hospital's pictures of Lincoln and Lila, here is a link to the website.  I think you just need to know what our last name is, that they were born on February 3rd and that we live in Covington.

They are funny looking photos, but fun to look at nevertheless.  Enjoy!

1 + 1 = 4

Tuesday was the day!  For 29 years, February 3rd was just another day on the calendar.  This year, February 3rd became the most special day of our lives.  Here are some photos of the day we met Lila & Lincoln and became a family.

Here I am a few days before.  More than 12 lbs of baby in there!!!
