My Twin Girls Are Here!!!!!!

On Friday, May 21st my twin girls were delivered by c-section at 36 weeks, 3 days.

Greer Anne was born at 4:45 pm, weighing 5 lbs 4 oz, 19 inches long.

Shea Carolyn was born at 4:46 pm, weighing 5 lbs 12 oz, 19 inches long.

No NICU time, and I was able to start nursing both of them right away.  We're supplementing breastfeeding with some high calorie formula for a little while to build up some body fat for them.  Greer lost a lot of weight quickly and had trouble holding her temperature, and then Shea started losing weight too quickly. They are so tiny that it's hard for them to stay awake long enough to get their food!  They are doing very well and supplementing has really helped them. 

I am completely and totally in love and amazed that they are here.  They couldn't be sweeter or more cuddly!

I also have to say that we've had FANTASTIC nurses the last few days who have made my hospital stay so wonderful.  I think it wil be hard to leave tomorrow!

If someone tells me how to post a picture, I will!

    Congrats mama!!  Enjoy every second of it.....I was scared/sad to leave the hospital too, and really missed being able to call the nursery to take the babies for a few hours when I wanted a nap those first few days at home :)
