A Happy Home!...The Twins Are Born!

Yesterday, my daughter Tina and I drove with her 3 little kids to Rochelle's, my other daughter's house. She was scheduled early the next morning to have a C section to deliver twins.

I took a picture again of the nursery and it is all ready to welcome the twins home.

The next day, Rochelle who was having the twin girls went to the hospital with her hubby, Derek, at 5:30 AM. Tina, I and Rochelle's 13 year old daughter AJ, followed at 7 because OR was scheduled at 7:30 AM.

Below are the 2 sisters taken before Rochelle was taken to surgery.
As soon as they took her, the 3 of us went to get something to eat. After a while,Tina went to check
on her and then came back to tell me they are allowing one member of the family to observe in that restricted area. Of course, the husband was already allowed inside the surgery room.
Tina said she would love to watch but she will be nice because she knows I would love to go in
so she will let me go instead. Of course I jumped on the opportunity.
I went in and then the anaesthesiologist brought AJ in too and told her "We can't have the big sister not see her baby sisters be born!".
And so there is AJ and me watching the whole procedure from the window in the observation room

AJ got so emotional and started crying.

And the babies were born. First was Rea Jaelyn with lots of black hair at 6 lbs, 5.6 oz and 19 inches long.

Then Baby B followed. We call her Halle Joselyn at 5 lbs, 12 oz and 18.75 inches long. She has very little and very light hair.

I have pictures of them being born but I deleted them cause they might be too graphic for people who are not in the medical field.

First picture with mom and dad. Too bad big sister AJ could not be in the picture.
And here are the twin girls all cleaned up and bundled. They are not identical twins but it is very hard to tell them apart when ther heads are covered.
I think they both look like Derek, especially with their eyes closed. He could not get enough of them, always holding or touching them. He is a very proud daddy for sure!
Actually, we all couldn't get enough of them, lol. They are really so cute and so precious!

Tina and Halle
And as most of you know, Tina just had a baby girl too last Dec. 26. I am definitely in grandkids heaven. We put baby Reese in between the twins, lol. We call them the Triplets!

Mom, big sister and Rea.
Rochelle was groggy most of the day because of the anesthesia but started getting more alert by late afternoon.
AJ just loves the babies! We all do! We were always racing to get to them first. Good thing there were 3 baby girls there cause Reese was there too.
4 granddaughters and me!
What a wonderful feeling to have them all at the same time.
Thank you so much for stopping by to join me during this very special day.
