And then there were six

Lucy Joy and Lane Noel made their grand entrances at 12:49 and 12:52, respectively, on the afternoon of November 29th, 2006. Lucy weighed in at a hefty 3 lbs. 14 oz. and Laney was 4 lbs. 10 oz. They spent their first week in the hospital, but were then able to come home to their thrilled sister and brother. They are amazing and although it's hard, I can't quite bring myself to complain. It may be the post-partum, sleep-deprived crazies talking, but after having two, I can't imagine only ever having one at a time. I feel like I would just be sad for that one and keep asking, "Where's your friend, you poor thing?" (Probably not really, otherwise my friends with new babies won't invite me over) We're glad they're here, safe and sound, and I can't imagine a better way to start off the New Year then to present the past month in pictures. (FYI: Lucy is always the skinnier, paler one)

You asked for it (albeit three months ago...)

For those of you who know that my twins are five weeks old today, this post is so past due. However, I'm a little slow these days. Just give me credit for coming through, even if I'm a few months behind!

The first pic was taken in early November, I believe. The second was taken the morning of the day I gave birth, in between five minute contractions. "Hurry! Take a picture!" I yelled at Ben frantically, "I promised people!" Right after that, we were en route to the hospital. Am I devoted to my peeps or what?
