The Twins

I thought I would start out with the twins, they have come a long way from how they started. The babies were born on September 17th 2009. They were 6 weeks early. Karson Kent Bennett was born at 11:34 pm and weighed 4lbs 14oz and was 17 1/2in long. Shortly after Kole Richard Bennett was born at 11:39pm and weighed 3lbs 13oz and was 17in long. They were both rushed to the NICU where they spent the first couple weeks of their lives. It was really hard for us to deal with, but luckily we have a great family support system that helped us through it all. We really appreciate everyone! Both babies luckily have no health problems. They were just early and had to learn to breathe and eat on their own. Karson ended up spending 17 days in the NICU, and Kole spent 22 days. We couldnt wait to get them home!
