Julie, I am so happy for you! It's strange how I can be in tears about a woman who I've never met in real life, but I am seriously sending you and your family lots of love and am so happy to hear that you are all doing well!

Julie so glad to hear that Oliver & Lydia are here and you are recovering. You have done an amazing job of growing and now birthing these wonderful babies. Enjoy all the squishy snuggles you can get, you totally deserve it.

 

I'm so excited to see pics and hear the full birth story once you've recovered a bit and have both the time & energy.

Oh Julie, I am so happy to hear that you are stable, and your babies are healthy.  I cannot wait to hear the story, or see the photos.  But for now, I am SO very overjoyed that you are able to bask in TWO little newborn lives!  I hope that you not only feel honored to usher them into the world today, but that you also feel as proud as you should.  Having only ever birthed just one baby at once, I can only imagine what strength and beauty it takes to bring two lives into the world.  In addition to resting, recovering, and enjoying your new family, I hope that you are able to bask in the triumph of what you have just done today.

 

Congrats mama, and so very much love to you!!

Dear ladies, you are so kind, I am in tears.  Thank you for all your exceptional love and kindness and support.  We are doing well, but it's just the two of us, for now, so I am very busy and exhausted... and, I suppose, ought to see if I can learn to post on MDC from my phone.  (For those brief moments when I have a hand free.)

 

I don't know if I'll have the energy to give more details about the birth, tonight, but here are some photos:

Oh Julie, I love the family photos!  Such fantastic lighting, and you look so beautiful!  And the twins, of course, are just cute as buttons.  Thanks for sharing...  I know how hard it is to get a moment with just one...  Phew!  I hope that you are able to find moments to catch your breath and know your strength, however few and far between they might be!

You make a very beautiful family, what a precious anniversary gift to be home with the twins.

 

I can't even imagine how busy you must be right now with two newborns to care for and feed, but you look so amazing that it appears to agree with you Mama.
