They're Here!

My two newest granddaughters have arrived! They were delivered by C-section yesterday afternoon. The first one weighed in at 4 pounds 6 ounces and the second one was 4 pounds 3 ounces. Both are about 17" long. I've seen a few cell phone photos of them but don't have anything I can post yet. I also have not seen them in person yet nor spoken with my DD since before the procedure. I want to call her to see how she's doing but I know she needs what rest she can get and is probably pretty busy inbetween times.

I'm debating about whether or not to risk the trip down to the hospital on my own today. If DH can take a personal day from work we may just go down together tomorrow. We're waiting for a second car seat to be delivered too. If that comes today we can just take it with us tomorrow and save ourselves an extra trip.

My oh my, so exciting!

CONGRATULATIONS to one and all . . . as tempting as it is to visit the hospital, I think I'd wait to savor it all where the atmosphere doesn't harm you or disrupt many hours after the brief encounter.

Oh, what joy ~ two babies!!

Congratulations! The only thing better than a new baby is two new babies! I have twin grandsons so I know what I'm talking about. Too bad they're 18 now. How time flies!

Congratulations to you and your family. I'm glad the babies have arrived, and that they're pretty good size for twins.

Great blog. Thanks for the link. The links on my web site weren't working for a few months but I finally found out about it and got them fixed.

I may have told you this already, but my dh is a twin and weighed only 2 lbs 8 oz when he was born. Quite a medical miracle back then.

Congratulations Grandma!
