So they have been preparing us that not everyday would be good. I had put that at the back of my mind and would just focus on the present. Well today was stressful for our little family. I went into the hospital a bit late because I finally went and got my haircut. That took [...]

I had to repost the video that was attached to last nights post. For some reason it would ruin all the margins for the previous posts. I’m not that computer savvy to fine tune it so I just put it in its own post. A real update will be later after I get to see [...]

It was especially funny considering a [...]

I had written a post before about making the babies some blankets once I was on maternity leave. As you can guess I never got the chance to do that. The other day a nurse suggested we bring in a couple of personal items to put on the incubator and it would be good if [...]

Currently, 4 out of 5 McKenzie’s that live in Santa Barbara are in Cottage Hospital. What are the chances? Hava is recovering from the c-section, the twins are in the NICU, and my dad, Jim, is in the CCU.
With all that was going on yesterday I almost forgot that my dad had to [...]
