We are: Dave (Daddy), Cyndi (Mommy), Solana (2nd Grader), and identical twins Chloe (Pre-K'er and former micro-preemie) and Leila (angel). I began blogging at Our Young Shoot when Chloe was born at 24weeks and 1pound 7oz. I had no idea what was in store for us but I'm so glad to have documented her 5 month NICU adventure. I decided I enjoy blogging and am now keeping this one as a way to document memories for our girls and to share fun stories and pictures for friends and family members.

My girls love to read and that makes me so happy. As a parent I'm constantly worrying about the influence I have on the girls. If I tell her to brush her hair does that send her the wrong message about the importance of appearance or am I teaching her to take pride in herself? If I make her finish her vegetables am I teaching her that healthy eating is important or am I removing an opportunity for her to make a right choice. It's not easy knowing the right thing to do. But when I see how much they love reading I know we've done something right. Yay!
Solana was reading and Chloe decided to join her. She brought a book and her pink blankie and climbed up on the couch with her sister. Love this.
What?!? The TV is on and Solana's back is turned? Is it a full moon or something?
This picture also makes me giddy because this marks the week when Chloe began drinking on her own. I think it was a combination of something Dave did, the cups with straws vs. sippy cups, and Chloe wanting to be like Solana. But a lightbulb went on somewhere and Chloe randomly began drinking. Now we don't have to worry about her hydration all the time. Yay!
