So alot of craziness has happened since i posted last week. First off we no longer have to wait until november to have the twins. On monday (oct11) Tammy was having alot of contractions and couldn't get them to stop, so the doctors office advised us to come in and see what was going on. Well come to find out Tammy was in the early stages of preeclampsia. She had really high blood pressure and toxins in her blood test and alot of protein in her urine. Well the doctor decided that it was gonna be best for mom and kids to get them out into this world of ours. So on Oct 12, 2010 Tammy and I became the parents of two prescious little boys! Tammy had to have a c-section so she has been trying to recover from that and then also recover from all the medications they gave her to treat her condition. She is now doing well and even though she had to wait to see her kids she now has been able to hold them and love them even more!

The babies for the first day of there lives were known has Baby A and Baby B. We did have names picked out but i wasn't gonna choose who got what name without mamas input. So after Tammy got well enough to see them and hold them we decided that Baby A was now known has William Joseph Mendenhall and Baby B was now known as Jaxon Lee Mendenhall. William was born at 10:25 am (on oct 12) weighing in at 5lbs 1oz and being pretty darn close to 18 inches long. Jaxon was born two minutes later at 10:27 am, and he weighed in at 4lbs 10oz and was 18 inches long too!

After the little dudes were born they have needed help breathing and have received it in a variety of ways but now they are barely getting any help breathing and are doing superb!

I am so grateful that our Father in Heaven was and still is watching over my tiny family. After what everyone has gone through in the last two days i know that it is only because of him and his power that everyone is doing as well as they are. I'm grateful for all the love and support that has been poured upon us from family, friends, and the hospital staff. You all have made this alot easier upon Tammy, The Boys, and me. Thank you thank you thank you!

So hopefully William and Jaxon keep on making the physical improvements that they need too. and hopefully Tammy keeps improving also. Its my goal to have everyone home asap.

Thanks again for everything!

So we went to the doctors yesterday and found out all is going well with the twins! I've thought we have been going to the doctor alot up to this point but now they tell us we get to do non stress tests twice a week until they are born. Oh boy was I excited! This is on top of all the other doctor appointments. We also found out that the bigger baby is still in the breach position and unless this little guy gets with the program and rotates then Tammy will need to have a C-section. Its not her only option but its the safest and whats most likely the best choice for her and the babies. So unless the baby turns before November 9th she will have a c-section that day. Or it is still possible she could go into labor before then too. Thats the update on the twins!

We are getting closer and closer to getting the babies room done! We are finally done with all the wall decor that we are doing. And there is a picture of how the cradles turned out all finished and put together. Hopefully we will have it all done before the kids decide to grace us with there presence on this earth! Next its on to finish the refinishing of the changing table.

So we have been busy getting things ready for the babies to get here. There room is almost all done and ready for them to move right in. Mom Jackson made two very beautiful cradles for them to sleep in. They look amazing! We went with a sports theme in the room and have managed to make most of the wall hangings and other decor in the room ourselves. that has saved us alot of money. You definitely can tell they weren't done professionally but they still look pretty dang good!

Other than the baby stuff not much has changed in our lives. Tammy still works at the cinema, even if its only fir a bit longer. I still work at deseret dairy. As far as church callings go Tammy still doesn't have a calling and i am still teaching primary.

Hopefully in the next few days we will get pictures of some things posted on here, and maybe we will update this thing more often but don't hold your breath.
