Babies!

My boys are here! They showed up via c-section on Monday night--twin B flipped around between our appointment on Thursday and the one Monday morning, so we did a c-section instead of an induction. It turned out to be a good move, because twin B was larger than A, so they would have had a harder time with the breech delivery. In any case, they are such sweet little guys, and we're all really happy to be home! Everett Marion was born first, at 5:17pm, weighing in at 7lbs, 12oz. His brother Theodore Lewis came a minute later at 8lbs, 3oz. Both 20" long. 38weeks, 4 days. No one can believe how huge they are! Milk is in already and I'm managing the surgery pain pretty well, though it's harder at my house in some ways. Can't wait to see more babies!!

She's here!
And so are the boys!

Wow! Congrats!

I have a friend due in 6 weeks and her twins are measuring very small and she is already dilating and effacing with a lot of contrax. You did amazing to keep them in for so long and at such a healthy weight!

Okay, so ditto! I had one at 8 lb 13 oz and that was hard enough! What a great job! Welcome to the world little guys. I wish you quick healing and amazing bonding. Feels so good to finally get to meet and hold our babies and smell their sweet newness! Congratulations to you and blessings on the boys!

Mama to 4yo dd Piper, loving wife to Dave and preggo for the second time...due in Early July!  Hurray!

Thanks, everyone! They are really large--my DD was only a little bigger when she was born (8lbs9oz) and she was alone in there, plus had an extra three weeks. We're really grateful for them being so large and healthy!

They are handsome! They look so alert and you can already see their little independent personalities in their faces - wow!

Oh my!!! They are absolutely precious! Congrats mama on having such wonderful, big and healthy twins. I wish you well on nursing and surgery recovery. My 3yo DD saw the pic when I pulled it up and screamed "Oh mommy me want them babies! Them sooooo cute!!!" LOL

Yep, fraternal for sure! I am glad of that--I have no idea how parents of identical s tell them apart. My friend has 8 year old identical boys and I swear she just guesses half the time...

She's here!
And so are the boys!
