I have to admit though, it was a lengthy post (especially compared to all the others I've written), poorly written (I was so emotional and in desperate need of an outlet for it), I didn't really advertise my blog like I usually do, and the birth of babies (even multiples) tends to be relevant/meaningful only if you know or are related to the parents. I've had someone tell me once they didn't find any birth special at all and I'm sure he's not the only one who feels that way. I for one think every birth is special because the same person is never born twice. =)
Anyway, a couple of people showed interest in seeing a few pictures and L (the Mom!) finally sent me a few. The girls are doing great! Mom is out of the hospital but the twins are not. They were 3 weeks premature and are currently in NICU but they are doing great, getting healthier by the day, and have a high probability of going home maybe even early next week.
Earlier this week they were put in the same incubator. M is the one in the front (she was born first) and J is behind her:
I got to feed J the other day and she held her bottle in such a cute way that L (Mom) took a picture:
I also love just holding them while they sleep. L (Dad) thought it was hilarious how I kept staring at his daughter with such an idiotic expression and L (Mom) was amused as well. Here I am with the goofiest smile:
I should get back to writing short, (hopefully) humorous, sarcastic posts after this. But man, this experience was fucking awesome!
