Take a peek into our life as a big family in Houston, TX. Welcome to the electronic journal for the Texas T family. This blog was created to share some moments of our life with you. Often having 11 children, homeschooling, and being incredibly active in our Catholic faith we are asked “How do you do it?” We invite you to look around, sign up as a follower, and peek into the answer to that question. Remember we are not a perfect family; but I won't post the bad stuff.
Thanks for visiting, Neen

Just a Few Pictures from the week
Pooker admires Beautiful
Goobers with Beautiful
I was really bad at taking pictures this week. It was a very hard week. Going home but leaving babies at the hospital is something that you can't prepare for. My body is not healing like it did in past pregnancies and I feel sick. My legs and belly are still swollen and sore with fluid. In that respect it is a small blessing that the Twins are being well cared for. I am pumping my breast milk, but I am not even near babies when pumping so it feels very mechanical. It is best for premie babies so I will continue but it adds to the odd emotions of the week. Saturday The older kids had their swim meet and I stayed home and slept all morning into the afternoon. We all rushed to hospital after swim to spend as much time with babies as we could. Twin Adorable is now off IV and we were so hopeful that we could hug on her. Possible was taking the first turn in holding her and her oxygen levels kept dropping. She remained stable once we put her back in her crib, but that really was hard to see. Poor Possible felt like it was her, it wasn't. Adorable just can't handle all of that stimulation. Twin Beautiful is much more accommodating. We have all held her except for Pickle, who had a cold. She is so tiny but really so strong. Medically they are both doing great and making advances each day. Thank you for reading our updates. I am sure that the babies will be getting bigger and stronger all week. I just ask that you continue to pray in thanksgiving for our health and request that the twins continue to mature so we can bring them home.
