my children are the reason i get up in the morning… and the reason i drink at night

meet our family

We were blessed with two boys, Bruce Fulton III & Salvatore Stephen, on March 22, 2011.

Meet Twin A: Bruce

bruce III hospitalBruce was the first to join us. He was lower in my belly, and took care of all the bladder kicking. He weighed in at just 4 lbs 14 oz, and 18 inches long.

Bruce was full of personality from the moment he arrived. He was extremely alert, and his eyes followed me everywhere. An hour after he was born, I remember him looking at me like “OK mom, now what?!?!” He still makes me laugh every day with his spunky attitude. He is mega independent and very sharp. For that reason, he gets upset when things don’t go his way, but he also gets so excited when he figures things out on his own. He has amazing fine motor skills, and loves playing with little toys like trains, bugs, and anything tiny he can find on the floor.

Meet Twin B: Sal

Sal day 2

Sal joined us right after Bruce. He was 5 lbs 13 oz, and 19.5 inches. Sal was the upper twin, and did a good deal of damage to my rib cage.

Sal is a true blue momma’s boy. He was a quieter baby, and loved (still loves) to sleep from the start. He is my shadow, and gets upset when I drop him off places. He gives the best hugs and kisses, and would be perfectly OK with me carrying him around all day. Sal can physically get in/out and on/off anything he wants. He was an early walker, and figured out how to climb out of his crib at 18 months. Because he hurt himself, and hasn’t tried again since. He loves anything to do with sports- bats, balls, hockey sticks, golf clubs, football and basketballs.

Meet the Mom & Dad

My husband Bruce and I met and started dating in 1999, when we were 17. We had a big beautiful wedding in 2007 and love spending time with our friends and family. We are extremely blessed to have our boys and excited to be welcoming a third baby in July of this year! Kids are amazing, but a huge life changing experience. I am glad we had some time on our own. No marriage is perfect, and children bring new tests daily. One thing we always agree on is being a united front, and definitely having some sort of game plan when we approach new challenges with our boys. When If we get annoyed with each other, usually the boys will do something totally crazy and funny to make us start cracking up. Bruce went from never being around babies to a totally involved father who was showing me how to change their diapers a few hours after they were born. He stayed at the hospital with me every second for the 3 nights and 4 days I was there. He was my lifeline during those first few months, physically and emotionally. We were both exhausted and drained, but every second was worth it!
