The wee ones

So much to say... SO EXHUASTED. Short story:

Twin A was 8 pounds; he's our gentle giant. Twin B was only 6 lbs 6 oz, and he's a spunky little guy. I am head over heels for both.

Surgery went fine, I am recovering okay. (Aside: writing a blog post on morphine is NO EASY TASK.)

Longer story coming soon.

A few pics to tide you over in the meantime.


I do plan to use only nicknames for these little ones on my blog, but I will give you a sneak peak of who they really are. The one on top is Twin A.


We did it.

Congrats! Beautiful Boys. Love the names you chose for them. The idea for nicknames, Spunky and Truck/Tank (though Tank is my little grandsons Nickname I adore it. Anyways, I am sure you probably have nicknames. Again Congrats!

Sarah said...

Nicholas was one of my boy names before we got Georgie! Len, being a family name guy, didn't agree. Joseph, a family name, was my first runner up in names right until Georgie came out...he was a George. Needless to say, I love the names! Alexander is my nephew and the boys were born on my moms birthday!!! There are zero excuses for me to forget their names or birthdays ever in their lives!!! So glad that you all are doing so well! Very proud and super thrilled that they are here! Congratulations!!!

Mary said...

Well done! They arte gorgerous. I LOVE the pic of bean meeting his brother.

The names are lovely and match so well with Bean's name. A question for whenever you get time to answer - how do you choose which name goes with which twin?
