Daddy, daddy, daddy...

Last night Mark and I were going through a baby name book trying to agree on even one name for the next little Watson. So as we were scanning the "M's" we came across the meaning for McKenna:

McKenna- daughter of the handsome man

Well this was all my husband (the man who gives himself a pat on the back for changing a diaper) needed to feed his ego. It's been more than 12 hours and I am still hearing about it... "McKenna, come see your handsome Daddy, Parker, you are the son of a handsome man etc, etc, etc." The comments go on and on (insert eye roll here).

In all seriousness though, Mark is a phenomenal daddy. My kids truly could not have anyone better. He has become a more wonderful dad to our children than I could have ever imagined. We have made it through the most awful thing a parent should ever go through and his strength and support have carried me through it all. Not many people can say that their marriage was stronger after suffering the loss of a child but ours is and it is because of his continued love and support of me through the good times and bad. He is truly a hands-on father and I know there are million things he does now that he would have never imagined himself doing doing a few short years ago. How his life has completely changed, but I know he loves and appreciates every minute. I can't wait to bring one more little Watson to this "handsome" Daddy. We love you!

Everyone's walking

Parker is walking! He started just how we thought he would, one minute he was taking a step or two every now and the next thing we know he is off and almost running. His walk is almost more of a dance, he sort of waddles side to side to keep himself up and gain momentum. Go Parker!!

Line up

I am determined to get belly pics to chronicle my pregnancy this time. We tried with the triplets but never got enough so tonight Mark was going to take my 14 week shot and the next thing we knew there was a line up at my belly. I can only imagine how fascinated they will be when I'm really big...

McKenna giving me a little pat.
This one is my favorite, he was particularly interested in my belly button.

Just a sweet pic of McKenna in her jammies.

Back to the chair

Last Christmas Aunt Casey bought the kids the cutest matching sweaters and I was so excited that they finally fit (thanks Aunt Casey!). They looked so cute that we decide it was time to attempt a photo shoot in the chair again. Needless to say no one sat still and this was the best we could do. I love the one where McKenna is moving so fast her little arms are a blur!

A few other pics Daddy took today...

The Watson Salon

Brushing hair is a big hit around here right now, do you need a cut, style or one-year-old to pull your hair??

14 months ago...

So last night I started watching NICU videos, most of them I have never seen. That time was such a blur and it has taken me a long time to even be able to go back and reflect on the long journey we spent there. I came across this video from Thanksgiving last year and it just amazed me that the two babies in this video are the same one-year-olds running around my house right now. Many people didn't see the kids in the NICU so this video is a glimpse at life about a month and a half after they were born. By this time they had doubled their weights since birth, weaned off the ventilators and lost their iv's. So even though they look so tiny and fragile this is nothing compared to where they started. Amazing, amazing, amazing...

The best Christmas present

We had an extra surprise this Christmas, here is the video of the babies telling Mark all about it. I apologize in advance for the semi-swearing, Mark said apparently he reverts to street slang when he is in shock :)
