Transition Day

It is so nice to be home.

After 13 days of hospital stuff, it’s just plain sweet to be around the house, and not go anywhere. We’re happy to just to stay here and try to get adjusted to life with twins and an intense feeding rotation at least every three hours.

Today was our last day with Grandma Peg—for now. Grandpa Tom and Auntie Kim came down from Aitkin, had dinner with us, and took Grandma Peg back with them tonight.

She’s headed home, for now, because we have reinforcements on the way for the next 10 days.

On Friday morning, Grandpa Rick and Grandma Jane leave home in South Carolina to fly here and replace their Summer vacation with diaper duty. Okay, not just diaper duty. That’s such a small part of this. This will be a vacation unlike any other—and maybe their best, even as tiring as it may be.

It’s so amazing to hold these little guys in our arms and get to know their differences and peculiarities. They are astoundingly beautiful creations. How wonderful must the God be who made babies like this—and two at time!

Thank you, God, for Carson and Coleman.

It is a beautiful morning on Cedar Lake and I hope my little guys get to visit here soon. To the Grandma Jane and Grandpa Rick – enjoy your week. Hugs to all of you ..Grandma Peg

    Congratulations Mathis family! They are so beautiful. I tear up as I look through the pictures and imagine the season you all are in. What a glorious God to give such good gifts, and to give us the strength and ability to train them up. Enjoy each moment, even the delirious ones, which are the majority of where you guys are now. 🙂

    Your boys are SO beautiful! It is so fun to see you enjoying all your precious “firsts” with them! I am noticing a Coleman/blue, Carson/green theme…is this intentional?

    • mathises says:


      Good eye! Yes, a little bit of a Carson-green, Coleman-blue pattern is emerging. Their wear green and blue pairs for blankets, hats, and bids, and so far we’ve put the green with Carson and blue with Coleman. Also we have green and blue bottle tops that help us keep straight whose bottle is whose.

    I just have to say, Megan you look great for having two babies a couple weeks ago. I love all the pictures and tidbits of info on the boys. Thanks for keeping everyone in the loop.
    Love Colleen and Elise
