They're here!

Oh yeah, the twins have been here for almost two weeks...  But it's hard to take pictures & blog with both hands full!
 
 
Somehow all our pictures got deleted when my little brother got a hold of our camera at Thanksgiving, so this is all I have!  Looks like I should have backed up all those vacation pictures :(
 
Anyway, on the left is Elizabeth, and Mary Claire is on the right.  We put them on the couch to take a picture a few days ago and they stayed asleep, so John Paul HAD to very gently place baby blankets over them.
 
The babies were born early Wednesday morning (3:06 and 3:17 AM) on November 14, weighing in at 5 lbs 8 oz (Elizabeth) and 6 lbs 2 oz (Mary Claire).  Thankfully the delivery was totally uncomplicated & we were able to leave the hospital about 36 hours after the babies were born.
 
Things are going well so far - obviously very little sleep, but both babies are nursing well and John Paul and Cecilia absolutely ADORE them.

  2. Well, not totally natural - there were definitely drugs involved! But no surgery + no catheter after delivery was pretty awesome!
