We had two baby showers scheduled for us last week, but as we were in the hospital for the whole week, we had to miss them. We would be remiss though not to thank the folks that worked hard to put everything together! Fortunately, one of the showers was for us and another couple expecting twins (that’s right, presents for four babies at that party) so they were able to carry on without us. We were very grateful however, that they delivered the presents (and cake! pictured above) to our house.

Nothing else new to report. Adriene is resting comfortably on the bed and Jeff has so far been pretty successful in cooking dinner and keeping the house clean.

After a week at the hospital, Adriene is back home! She is on strict bedrest for the rest of the pregnancy, so no marathons for Adriene and Jeff is going to be her butler and chef for the next few weeks. He would like to think he can prepare food at least as good as hospital food.

Even though she’s home, Adriene will still be off her feet and have plenty of time on her hands. Phone calls, e-mails, and even visits by the house are still welcome. Just give us a heads up if you are planning to drop by!

Thanks so much for your prayers, calls, e-mails, and well-wishes. We again say we are very blessed.

We’re here at Kennestone Hospital for a couple of days. Fortunately, the hospital has wireless! Adriene is having some minor contractions and the doctors want to verify that she is not going into pre-term labor. They given her some steroid shots to help develop the babies and also some medication to stop the contractions, but we’re in a bit of a wait-and-see phase right now. We are guessing they will send her home when the contractions stop, but she will likely be on bedrest for the rest of the pregnancy. We’re also coming to the realization that the babies may be here sooner than later! Yikes!

The important part is mom feels good and the babies are growing, so that’s all good news! Just give us a heads-up if you’d like to drop by. We’re not doing much right now here other than watching Scrubs and Office DVD’s and trying to guess what’s going to happen in the last Harry Potter book. We appreciate everyone’s prayers. We feel blessed. Our prayer is that God will let our girls “cook” for just a little longer!
