Baby Pictures

Thank you, one and all, for your congratulations and well wishes. I'm a pretty happy grandma!

Here they are, our newest little bundles of joy:

They are swaddled in about 3 blankets each because they are having trouble keeping their body temps up. They have next to no body fat to keep them warm. Other than that they seem to be perfectly healthy and will be released from the hospital as soon as they can maintain acceptable temperatures for 24 hours.

"Baby A," the first one out:


And "Baby B:"
They are most likely fraternal twins, not the identical ones we thought they might be. I see elements of DH's mother in Baby B's face, although not necessarily from this angle.

DH and I had the whole afternoon with DD and the babies yesterday. It was heavenly. Because there were so few other people in and out of the room I was able to hold up pretty well. I feel very tired today but it could have been so much worse! I don't know when I'll get to spend that kind of time with the babies again. DD and family will probably be staying with other family until their check-ups next week. After that they may finally return to their own home. The problem is that most baby gear is scented in a way that is too much for my system to handle and DD's house will be full of it. {sigh}

And now I have an idea what I'm going to do for my official February Bead Journal Project. I'm just not sure how soon I'm going to tackle it. ;- )

Don't they look sweet?! Glad you got to go see them already. Maybe you could visit sometime via a park or some place where scents would be out in the air.

I posted a comment on your BJP blog post titled "Revelation" -- thought you might not see it unless I directed you there.

Susan ~ Congratulations! The babies are beautiful. Makes me want another grandbaby, but none of the kids seem to be in a hurry to have another one. Not just yet, anyway. LOL
