Merry Christmas everyone! As you can tell by the earlier post, our precious little baby girls arrived on December 22 and have been the best Christmas gift we could ever ask for. Things have been absolutely crazy, but I just wanted to post a couple of pictures and introduce you to our newsest additions. Labor went well and I was able to deliver both girls without a C-Section! Yeah! There were a few minor complications, but all in all, I could not have expected it to go any better. I know that I was being watched over and protected throughout the whole process. They are the sweetest, tinest little things and we are loving them so much already. Their big sisters love them and are so eager to help. I could write about it all forever, but I am quickly learning that there really is NEVER a dull moment in our home anymore. (As if there ever was). I have hungry babies calling and so off I go. But first . . .

She is perfectly beautiful and doing really well. She was the first baby born and surprised us with a healthy cry and a very high Apgar score. She is doing great. She just seems so teeny when we are used to almost 9 lb babies!

She impressed us with an equally high Apgar and insured their spot in the regular nursery- no NICU! Aubrey has a sweet disposition and loves to look around. We can tell her apart from her sis by the shape of her head and her perma -scrunchy face! She is sweet.
We just love these girls and could hold them and kiss them all day! They truly are a miracle and an amazing blessing that we are so grateful for. Wish us luck as we figure out how to make this all work in our family! We are excited and up for the challenge!
