Update on the Momo's

The girls are here and doing great!

"Mary Kate" arrived at 12:26pm, weighing 4 lbs 6 oz. "Ashley" was out at 12:28pm, weighing 4 lbs 7 oz, both 17 inches long.

"Mary Kate" was breathing great on her own, and "Ashley" needed a si-pap for about 24 hours. Both girls are now off of everything except a small IV, and Ashley is eating more than I can pump.

Things are so different than with the Munchkin, it seems weird that I have to ask complete strangers to update me on my babies, and ask them for permission to hold or touch them. "Ashley" is eating every 3 hours, and they have allowed me to bottle feed her twice so far. Now we just need to get the Doctor to give some orders for "Mary Kate" to eat, and she will get caught up very soon.

Here are a couple pf pictures that were taken on Thursday. They look so different already, I will update again with new pictures soon!

I have been waiting for these pictures. They, of course, are adorable!!! I can't get over how beautiful their skin is and I've never seen blonde hair on new borns. I'm so glad everyone is doing well. I can't wait to see them in person. Your mom said you are going home tomorrow. I'll bet Munchkin will be so happy to have you back. Congrats again. With much love, Your Aunt

Oh! The babies... Congratulations. This is such great news. Now you can begin to breathe easy. And they are sleeping on their tummies! My daughter is a huge fan of her tummy too!

You had a lot of people praying for a safe delivery. I'm thrilled to see it happened. Enjoy this time of recovery.
