37w3d: May I Introduce To You…

Posted by auntiem10 on September 13, 2011

I am over-the-moon ecstatic to introduce our newborn daughters to you…

Violet Hope – 7 lbs 10 oz – born first at 2:13 p.m.

and Layla June – 5 lbs 14 oz – born second at 2:14 p.m.

Please forgive the big black boxes on her cap… I wanted to block out personal info but am too tired to do it in a classy way tonight.

More later, but all is well. They are breathing great on their own and are starting to show interest in eating from a bottle, although it seems like they’ve been on a hunger strike today. We are so grateful that everything is going well so far. I better end this so I can feed them, but I will add another post with more info when I get a chance!
