Jenni Meeting Tatum and Westin
A PERFECT Team and the best friends we could ever ask for!!
Thank you Lord!
Our Amazing OB/GYN she is truly one of my heros!!
On that morning we woke up and had to be at the hospital at 6:00am. They took Jenni back around 7:30ish. Once Justin, Thaddeus and I got dressed in our Pillsbury doughboy outfits we made our way to the OR. At 8:03 sweet Westin arrived. I will never forget the moment I saw that sweet face. I remember being relieved that he was healthy and crying. Ay 8:05 came Tatum my sweet girl :) From that moment we left Jenni. Thaddeus went with Westin and me Tatum. After they did the usual clean them off etc. We knew Westin was going to have to go to NICU so they let me Thaddeus and the twins go back in the OR and spend some time with Jenni and Justin before Westin went to NICU. I think they let us back because we knew his issues was going to be eating not anything life threatening, but that's just my theory. After our time with Jenni Thaddeus went to NICU with W and me to transition with T. That's when my family got to see Tatum. After transition we got to bring Tatum in to NICU so that I could see Westin too. I won't ever forget that moment. Over the next couple of days Westin was on a feeding tube and learning how to use a bottle with his cleft and Tatum went under the Billi lights on day 2 for jaundice. Westin spent 2 weeks in NICU and came home with us!!
For Jenni's story I wil let her post. Let's just say thank goodness she is okay, and that we had some wonderful nurses, doctor and Him!!

So life since then...
I will start with Westin. He got off his feeding tube about 4 days after he left the hospital. From then he has done SO well. He has a incomplete bilateral cleft palate and lip. So what is that? It is where his lip is not a full cleft lip and his palate is only a partial. He has his hard palate in tact the soft one is the part that will have to be repaired. YAY thats great news because this means he will have less surgeries. Right now he has an appliance put in and it reshapes his nose. This means he will not have to have reconstructive surgery on his nose. His first surgery to repair his lip on September 22nd.
Tatum is doing great! She has had an Ear infection, Strep throat and her ears pierced!!
Last week at the doctor Westin weighed 11lbs 6oz and Tatum weighed 11lbs and 1oz. I have posted some pictured below!!
