Baby Pics and Info!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

At long last, here's the baby blog! I have been just a bit busy, so getting to the blog took longer than I would have liked. But better late than never!

Me just before my c-section:



Both babies in the OR:



Baby A: Caitlin Clare, 3:46 pm, January 11 2013, 5 pounds 11 ounces, 18.5 inches



Baby B: Madelyn Rose, 3:48 pm, January 11 2013, 6 pounds 7 ounces, 20 inches



Four generations of DH's family:



We caused a gawker's traffic jam while exiting the hospital:



Our brand new family at home:



DH is holding Caitlin and I'm holding Madelyn. Caitlin is sweet, sensitive, and a slow eater and Madelyn is a little feist ball who tolerates no delays in getting what she wants. Caitlin continues to be noticeably smaller, has a fairer and pinker complexion, lighter hair, and attached ear lobes. Madelyn is a bit darker and more sallow but her hair is lighter and her ear lobes are detached. So no matter how much they look alike later, we'll always have a way to tell them apart!

We're settling into a routine and managing to get enough sleep to function. Things get a little easier most days and we're proud of how well we're making it work.

I hope you all are doing well!

    How absolutely wonderful to catch up with Caitlin and Madelyn at last, Dear Family!! For some reason, Jen, I did not get any notice of a new blog wayyyy back at the end of January, so assumed you have been too busy to post new ... came by to have a snoop today, and VOILA!!

How absolutely marvellicious, and not least that the two sweethearts are already so distinctive as well as beyond beautiful. Many, many happy hugs and supremely best wishes to them, to you two, and to all the legion of family and fans who've fallen in love with these glorious little girls. Wow oh WOW oh WOWWWWWW!!!

    Big, huge, congratulations! My daughter's baby was born 3 weeks early (induced) and Little Rebecca Joyce weighed in at 4 pounds, 14 ounces. So I am proud of how you managed to keep those little buns in the oven as long as you did.

They are ADORABLE, and I know you are so proud! Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures!!!
