Today is THE Day!

Just a short little post here to say that TODAY is the girls' DUE DATE!
I've tried to snuggle them extra today and imagine having carried them all the way until today.
Mercy - I can't imagine!
Tomorrow is mine and Charles' 4th Anniversary.
We are so blessed.
I do not take it for granted.
I'm so very thankful and wish this amount of happiness for everybody.

One Month - HOW??

How has a WHOLE entire month passed?  
I now understand why people say, "They grow up so fast...." 
We are so in love with these girls.
Thanks so much for checking in on our blog!

Today I had my postpartum doctor's appointment and that reminded me that my visits with those wonderful folks are coming to an end.  Dr. Risinger said my blood pressure seems to be back under I can stop taking the medicine - yay!  I'll see her one more time in two weeks and then my withdrawals from seeing Mrs. Sylvia and Dr. R and the others will begin.  :(  I owe Melissa Hilton big time for sending me in the direction of that practice.

3 Weeks Old

Somebody slow down time!!!  I don't understand how they can be almost a month old already.

We took the girls to the Doctor yesterday and got a great, "They're perfect", report!
Macy now weighs SIX POUNDS!
Molly now weighs 5 pounds 12 1/2 ounces!
This means they've each gained a pound since their birth!  I think it is all in their cheeks.
I love them SO much I can't stand it!!!

Two Weeks Old

Well.....can you believe it?  The girls are a little over two weeks old.  Kids grow up so fast.  :)  I cannot believe how happy I am.  Macy and Molly are absolutely precious and I'm thrilled to call them mine.

The girls first two weeks have been BUSY!  As you may know, Molly came home from the NICU on Sunday, May 23.  And life with twins at our home began. 

Each of the girls has had their Newborn Check Up with the Pediatrician.  He said they were "perfect"!
They also had a weight check/follow up type appointment.........and........drumroll......each of them weigh over 5 pounds!

Molly went up from 4 pounds 11.5 ounces to 5 pounds 1 ounce!
Macy went up from 4 pounds 13.5 ounces to 5 pounds 3 ounces!

Aunt Ginger came to visit from Massachusetts and her timing was perfect.  The doctor sent me to the hospital to get a blood transfusion due to toxemia/excessive swelling/anemia.  So, Charles stayed with the girls at home...and Ginger stayed at the hospital with me as we watched the clock for 12 hours.  I couldn't WAIT to get home to see the girls.  Ginger was a great conversationalist...and I showed all the nurses and techs pictures of the girls.   They very sweetly obliged.

Here are some pictures from the last few days.  Thanks for visiting our blog.
