2: Well 5 weeks early and here we go, It was getting a little scary for Mommy and Daddy as I was having so many complications. Dr.Tam decided it was going to be your birthday today. Although the morning on March 5th started off calm and quiet at 8:22am all heck broke loose and we were off to have an emergency C-section.
3: There was so many people in our room within a matter of minutes and there was not much time to think but I had to choose between being put out completely or to get a epidural and stay awake. The doctor told me that both choices came with complications but I wanted nothing more than to be able to see your precious faces so we chose the epidural.
4: Ethan Gray | Our little Man You came out screaming but it turned into laughter and now you have nothing but big smiles for mommy and daddy.
5: Ella Gray | Our little Princess You needed a little help when you came out but that's because you had the cord wrapped around your neck 4 times!!! but that didn't stop you from becoming a chatterbox.
6: Week 1 in N.I.C.U.
8: Cozy in our crib! | Well it's been a couple of weeks now and you are doing great. Ethan you are still having trouble keeping your food down but it's getting better. Ella you are doing so amazing and they say that you may be able to come home in a few days. We love you both so much.... | Week 2 at N.I.C.U.

24: I promise I do feed you but you seems to like to eat the chair | These pictures are some of our favorites right now, they make us laugh you are both such characters. | One of the questions we get asked the most is if you are identical twins!!!! People are crazy if they think you look a like as well as not very smart because you are a boy and a girls so how can you be identical?
25: Well you are almost 6 months now and we couldn't be more proud of you two. You are growing like crazy and doing all sorts of things. Ella you have been rolling over for the last month now, mommy has to be so careful when I put you down as you roll everywhere. You just started saying da da da da so I know it wont be long before you know what you're saying and your Daddy can't wait. You don't laugh as much as your brother but your smile melts our hearts.. Ethan you have not been the best at rolling over but when I put you in your jolly jumper I swear you could jump over the moon. You make Mommy laugh all the time with your infectious giggle, you have started to say ma ma but you don't know how to say it right yet but you will get it soon. You are both teething right now so you can be a little fussy at night but we know you don't mean it, we are looking forward to going to Disneyland in a couple months with you. I know you wont remember but I promise we will have fun | Love Mommy
26: Your visit to the Chiro. You had a couple issue's from when the doctors used the forceps to take you out. So Dr.Lali gave you a few adjustment to straighten you out.
27: Ella you also had a few problems, we had to hang you upside down once a day for a few months to help you stretch out your spine you love to do it. You also had some problems with your bones in your head and those you didn't like Dr.Lali working on.
