They're here!

After a few days on bed rest, Baby A and Baby B decide that it "was time", so off we went to the hospital on Saturday night.

Delivered by C-section, we are pleased to announce the birth of our daughters on Saturday, June 21.

A was born at 9:48 PM and weighed 3 lbs., 2 ounces and 15 1/2 inches.
B was born at 9:50 PM and weighed 4 lbs., 9 ounces and 17 3/4 inches.
Both are recovering nicely in the NICU. A is breathing fine on her own & B is using oxygen, but is getting better every day.
We really went through the range of emotions yesterday, but we feel so blessed and amazed by these two little girls. We are still working on finalizing names and downloading pictures, so hopefully a better introduction soon!

I am so happy for your husband and you. As a mother of two beautiful girls, your life will be blessed with lots of love from your new Angel Girls!

And as for decisions on the names...Bryleigh didn't have a name until she was almost 4 days old! There were 3 choices listed on papers hung up in the room. Everyone that came in gave their opinion...but my husband & I took the time to learn a little about our precious baby girl and then decided what name fit her best.

What ever the two of you decide, I am sure that the names will be beautiful...just like your girls.

Congratulations!!! It is a complete emotional roller coaster. the first time I saw my 2 in the NICU I bawled my eyes out. It's hard to see them in there - but your beautiful girls will thrive and grow. And in the meantime you have the best nurses in the world to help you look after them! So rest up!
