I am headed to bed and I will post more tomorrow, but I wanted to say that my twin boys are here! I went into labor on my own... started Saturday, went to the hospital on Sunday by 1:00pm and had them by 4:00pm. They are SO incredibly sweet and perfect. We were able to come home last night (after a bit of a struggle with a nursery nurse), so I was thrilled to only have to stay in the hospital for one night. :

Their names are Pilot & Finn (no middle names yet) and weighed 4 lb 15 oz and 5 lb (actually only 5 oz difference, and they rounded one to 5 lb). Super nursers, too!! Tell more tomorrow.

eta: Oh! And had them all-natural! SO happy about that.
