Our Little Men


Well everyone, what a day this has been. Yesterday we got up, took our showers, and decided to go ahead and swing by the hospital to get things checked out. I had been having pretty steady contractions since Friday evening and since my doctor was on call for Saturday I wanted to just see if it was amounting to anything. We didn't grab car seats or bags, we really thought we were just going to be sent home. In our minds it was a "better safe than sorry" trip.I was admitted at 7:30 and was watched on the monitors until around 11:30. At 11:30 when the doctor checked me, I had begun to dilate! The decision was made by 11:40 and c-section was scheduled for 1 o'clock. It all happened VERY quickly :) Kale's mom was at a soccer game, my mom was grocery shopping, Kale's dad was at the Razorback game with the boy scout troop, and my dad was putting out corn for the deer... in HOUSTON. Once we knew for sure it was going to be at 1:30 we called everyone as quick as we could. Moms made it before I went back to surgery. Carrie and Mamie also stopped by to see us. I got to see all of my siblings and then back we went.

Surgery went great. It was the strangest feeling in the world. I could feel everything they were doing, but there was no pain... just pressure. Fletcher entered the world butt first and Anderson came out feet first . He was kind enough to pee all over the doctor and the nurses. I can understand though... it was a pretty traumatic experience!

Fletcher was born at 2:04 and was 19.5 inches long, weighing 5# 12oz. Anderson was born at 2:06 and was 20 inches long, weighing 6# 3oz. Neither boy is on any support and they are eating like champs.

We let them sleep with us last night and they woke up twice. I didn't even know the first time because Kale had taken care of it so quickly! I slept pretty good. I am a little sore, but that is to be expected. Please keep the boys and me in your prayers. I hope to be mobile again soon.

If you want to see them we are at Mercy room 522. Come on by! We will go home tomorrow, Monday. Enjoy your Sunday.

Love, Mommy and Daddy Farmer


  1. It sounds like you had an incredible experience. I am glad that it happened so quickly. It's weird, I'm sure you had no idea that morning what was in store. 10-23-10 is a cool birthday! The boys are absolutely beautiful and I am so proud of you. I would love to see them but I will wait until all of the hubbub dies down a little. Hopefully, Justin and I can bring you dinner one evening and see the little cuties. Love you guys and congratulations on the new additions! Care for some celebration champagne?

  2. Girl, God has blessed you with such an amazing experience! I am so happy for you!! They are beautiful! That is so awesome that they are so healthy and everything went smooth! Stay rested and enjoy this time! I loved every moment of it! Congrats, we miss you!

  3. Congrats!! Can't wait to meet the boys!! I am so glad you all are doing well and everything went so smooth. Enjoy your time getting to know those precious babies.
