Barrett & Jack Morrill The Morrill Boys

First post: Apr 19, 2016 Latest post: Jul 14, 2016
Hi everyone! We are Barrett and Jack Morrill and our awesome moms are Amy and Jayna and we'd like to share our greatest adventures we have had so far! 
On March 30, all three of us decided that it was time to check out this crazy world. We heard people talking about us as the "Morrill trips" or "the boys" and plus it sounded like our moms were pretty cool so we figured lets go check out what this world is like. Apparently, we were told to stay inside and grow bigger and stronger and that's why mom got so boring and laid around all the time. But we didn't enjoy that as much so it was time! We guess that 24 weeks of growing wasn't long enough but we like a challenge so here we are. We came in to the world with lights everywhere and people running around-rather exciting but moms weren't too happy with us sorry mom! 
The first couple days after our birthday were crazy! We finally got to meet our moms and Grandma and Grandpa Torgerson and Grandma and Grandpa Morrill😍 I (Barrett) being the older brother by one minute, behaved like I was supposed to because Jack and Leighton needed a little more attention and help from the doctors. On Saturday April 2nd, Leighton told us that we needed someone to watch over us from heaven since we have quite a journey ahead. He told us he wishes he could stay in this world and meet everyone but he will wait in heaven; he has brothers to watch out for💖 Leighton left peacefully in mama A and mama Js arms and now he checks in on us all the time. 
Because I (Jack) am the youngest brother, I've decided I want to be the first to do as many things as possible! So one night, I wasn't feeling very well and figured that was a perfect time to have my first airplane ride! Mama J flew with me and we went to Sioux Falls for my first surgery! I had a hole in my small intestine so Dr. Jones took some of my intestine and now I have a ileostomy with my poop bag. It's almost as big as me but I don't mind. Now I'm at Sanford Hospital for a while with my own special room. I miss being with my brother but eventually we will all be back in Rapid City together.
So that's the beginning of our adventures! We may be small but we are fighters and we are showing everyone how strong we are. Thank you to everyone that has prayed for us and our mommies. We love them so much and can't wait to meet all our new family and friends! We know there are so many people looking out for us, especially our brother Leighton so watch out world cause here are the Morrill boys!
