Our twins were born on March 20th, just about 7 weeks prior to their due date. Thanks be to God that they were both born healthy – with no real medical issues, other than being small. Each weighed just a bit over 4 pounds. They spent about 3 weeks in the hospital. The day after Easter, it was time to come home! Here are the happy parents about to take those precious babies home. Suddenly their family grew from two to four!
Here is our new family, headed into their home together for the first time. Something they had hoped and dreamed and prayed for, for a long long time.
I was very lucky to be able to get some time off work to help out with the twins when they came home from the hospital. We parked the “Granny Express” (AKA our Motorhome) in the driveway, which worked out great. I had a place to escape to at night time! Yep, Grammie loves to help out, but she determined she was just TOO OLD to be up during the night for feedings.
I call this photo “keepin’ it real”… as we were so busy those first few days! Not only were we busy, but the new parents were adjusting to life without much sleep. Ahhhh yes, a fact of real life, especially when there are TWO babies in the house! Now that the kids have been home for almost 3 weeks, I think mom and dad have figured out a system. Not sure what it is, but it sounds like they are doing a little more sleeping than they did at first. Which is a GOOD thing!
I am hoping to get back over to see the rapidly growing twins sometime in the month of May. I have this funny feeling these babies are going to grow up waaAAAyyy too fast!
