Well it's official... we got ourselves a lemon! Our poor weiner daughter Bacon has had a rough life, and we're coming to find our kids don't come cheap! We figured out the other night that we've spent a good $5,000 on this dog, and I'm pretty sure we haven't seen the end of it. The issues began a few years back with her diagnosis of Hemolytic Anemia (basically her body was attacking its own red blood cells). Well one week in the animal hospital and a blood transfusion later (yes, that's real) ... SHE LIVES! So that was a little miracle in and of itself, but unfortunately, she's back in the hospital. This time she's dealing with a Mega Colon (pretty common in cats but not so much for dogs). Her body just can't pass things through like it used to, which means that her sweet dad has to give her enemas a couple of times a week. If that isn't love, I don't know what is! She's slowly getting worse, and we're trying to be optimistic but aren't sure how much longer she'll be around. She has been an amazing dog these past 6 years and a great companion for us while we were waiting for our kids to get here. We sure love you Bacon!

MODEL BABIES! Tyler's sister, Bryn, came out to take some "Newborn Pics" (2 months) of our handsome, little men. She has such an amazing talent, and the pictures turned out so cute! Check out her photography blog: http://brynsphotos.blogspot.com. I'd also like to give a shout-out to Tyler's sister, Haley, for the DARLING monkey hats... please believe she hand-made them! Talk about some talented aunts we got here! Can you guess which twin is which??

Well it's official... we've hit the 7 lb. mark at 9 weeks! We got some jumbo babies on our hands! Life couldn't be better with our sweet boys at home! We've had them home 5 weeks now, but it feels like forever. Life is definitely crazy, but we're loving every minute of it! The boys sleep a lot of the time, but they conveniently wake up at the exact same time starving when it's just mom at home... and they DON'T like to be hungry. Good times!
Beckham & Turner
