Isaac and daddy
After surgery sleeping away with his faithful companion Wizard the dog.

Isaac is still at the NICU in Everett and being transferred to Children's today if all goes as planned for surgery on Monday. Since he is older now he requires a lot more stimulation so the nurses have had their hands full trying to keep him entertained. He gets to swing, listen to music, have a mobile on his bed, and sit in the vibrating chair in his doorway to watch the nurses work (and hopefully get tired). Hopefully he will recover quickly from his surgery and get to come home on Christmas. If not, Santa will have to make another trip out to the Lake.
Brewster is surprisingly a good big brother. He is only jealous of the babies pacifiers and will take off with any left sitting around. He likes to kiss the babies on their heads and often has to be told to stop as he tries to give them a bath. He does not like the unpredictable arm flailing and is confused as to whether or not they are trying to play with him. I do think that Brewster tries to establish his dominance by eating his treats in front of them though. He has no idea how bad things will get for him once these little guys are mobile:)
Finger nails are good for getting baby boogies
Finger nails are bad when changing dirty diapers
Baby farts are funny
It is not funny when a baby can't fart
I should always have my hair pulled back when burping a baby over my shoulder
Babies can burp like grown men
I should never wear anything nice
It is so sweet when babies start to grab and hang on to you
It is not sweet when babies pull your hair
Babies know exactly when you get comfortable in bed
Babies hide cheese in their fat rolls
Babies like to pee when changing their diapers with no lights on
and many other things I can't think of due to lack of sleep...

We are hoping that everyone can keep Little Isaac in their thoughts and prayers as he is very sick. We had to take him to the emergency room Saturday morning and he has been admitted back into the ICU. Isaac either aspirated a lot of fluid into his lungs or has pneumonia. In any case he is on a ventilator and receiving antibiotics, all of which are helping keep his little body going. It is slow going to clear fluid out of the lungs but our little Mighty Mouse has made progress every day and I'm sure will continue to do so.

Here is Drew after a nice bath. He sure was relaxed after his spa treatment.
Here is a little reminder that even angels (Evan) can get upset:)

I am finally out among the real world today. I was discharged from the hospital last night and my departure was quite anti-climactic. I guess I was expecting a parade of sorts to celebrate my extended stay at Hotel Providence. So now begins the days of traveling back and forth to the hospital to hang out with the boys. Poor Casey has a very busy work schedule right now and fighting off some germ bugs. He stops by to admire his boy band every chance he gets. Every day I go to see the boys the nurse has some new task for me to practice. So far I have completed temperature checking, diaper changing, and putting on clothes (with a little help due to all of the wires). Casey was actually the first one to attempt these tasks and did a great job. By the way, the diaper changing is not bad as far as stinkiness, but what in the heck is that sticky goo the nurses call poo? The boys sure think it is funny to watch me try to wipe that stuff off:)

Party girls, Grace and Ella.
This is my impression of an old man who still wears size 32 jeans even with a huge beer belly.
