Today is celebrate conjoined twins day!

Hello everyone I just wanted to let you all know that today is Celebrate Conjoined Twins Day!

From Melody Joy and Madison Hope

After we found out we were having conjoined twins last year we felt so alone we didn't know anyone one who knew anyone that knew anyone with conjoined twins. Thankfully Jason's Aunt Stephanie found a support group for families of conjoined twins online. There are about 30 families that are members of that group. The more we talked with everyone the more we felt like we were not alone but a part of a very special group of people!

Today families of conjoined twins will remember the babies who have passed away be releasing balloons in their memory and rejoice with the families who's twins are still alive.

Jason and I wont be able to celebrate until next week because we are about 12 hours away from each other right now but after we do celebrate I will post pictures!

Have a blessed day and don't forget to pray for all of the families of conjoined twins!

one year ago today/ 14 week sonogram

One year ago today I was 19 weeks pregnant, my Mom, Destinee, Jason, Kenya and I all loaded up and headed to my midwifes office to have our first sonogram for that pregnancy (see that video here). We couldn't wait to see the baby. I was wondering, "could it be twins???" We were all shocked and surprised to find out that we would not only be having twins but they were conjoined. I wrote more about that here.

Our lives were forever changed that day. Thinking back to everything we went through with the twins it just amazes me that is has already been a year. When I remember that day I remember calling our closest family and friends so excited to tell them we were having twins but then I always had to follow the exciting news with, "but wait we need you to pray because they are conjoined." You see I was so excited to be having twins, I loved my babies. I was also devastated at the news that they may not make it but at the same time I was so proud to be their Mom. I have never had so many emotions run through my head in one day. God has brought us so far in a year.

One year ago it was all I could do to try to breath and not completely have a melt down now a year later we are praising God for the new life He is growing inside of me. We talk about Melody and Madison almost every day. Kenya always talks about her little sisters how much she loves them and how cute they are, she even remembers holding them and singing to them. We have not forgotten them and we never will but God has indeed turned our mourning into dancing (Psalm 30:11).

I want to introduce you to Baby Delgado #4 (yes I realize you have already seen pictures)
Here is the video and pictures from my 14 week appointment enjoy this sweet baby the Lord has blessed us with.

Little Gym

Thanks to Papa T and Wita (Jason's parents) Kenya is now enrolled in Little Gym.
She had her first class Saturday and it was so much fun. She is in a parent and me class so I got to be in there and help her, which I loved!

Kenya has so much fun exploring the gym and learning some gymnastics moves.

Kenya's first library card

Mandy and I took the kids to the Library for story time and we had such a blast. (I have not taken Kenya to story time since she was a baby, it was really fun to take her again.) We sang songs, heard a story and then the kids got to play for a few minutes. I don't know why I didn't take more pictures but I will try to get some next week.

After story time we went and got library cards. Kenya has her very own card and could not be more excited about it.
I know it's a movie but we did get lots of books also :)

Kenya's future husband

Well I just wanted to announce that I have chosen a husband for Kenya.
His name is Zef and he is just the cutest thing ever.
Kenya and Zef enjoy reading their Bibles together, pretending to be dogs and dancing at church.
(Yes, I realize that they are 2 and can't read but still its way too cute!)
Plus, Kenya also loves Zef's sister, Sara. What could be better than having your friend be your sister in law?
Are they not just way too cute!?!

Oh and please don't tell Jason about the fact that Kenya has a future husband
it just might make him cry!
