Charlotte Jane & Tessa Mabel
the newest members of our (not so) little family
Born Tuesday, Feb. 26th, 2013
We've had a whirlwind week with the arrival of our girls a month early. I am glad to be done with pregnancy and that I didn't need a c-section. We are all doing great and
loving these perfect, tiny sweethearts.
In the meantime, I am still at the hospital, waiting for the girls to perfect the art of body temperature maintenance and bilirubin testing with the hope of going home sometime this weekend.
Charlotte was born with some bruising and swelling on her face, which has made it easy to tell them apart for now. They look similar, but we don't think they are identical. There is a blood test we can have done to know for sure, but for now, we are just enjoying conducting tests of our own which involve many hours of staring at their tiny little faces.
Lucy and Henry are very sweet with their bitty new siblings. They haven't gotten to spend a whole lot of time with them yet. So, their feelings towards the girls are akin to seeing puppies at a pet store.
We' are feeling the love from so many well wishers and appreciate all your words of kindness. It may be a while before I post again here, but I will try to get an update or two out as I find time.
