The girls are just minutes old in these two pictures- I was actually still in the OR while daddy came back to recovery with our healthy baby girls where they were introduced to Jordan’s parents, BB and Papa, for the first time.  Both were very alert and so curious!

Ours sweet babies have overwhelmed us with joy.  It is something that cannot be described- and it brings me to tears just typing this..

..but, if I’m being honest, everything brings me to tears at the moment.

They have been true snuggle bunnies from the very beginning.  They were literally on top of each other in the womb- so it is no surprise now that they are still always touching.

Little Miss Diva: sweet Jolie Grace

Our totally chilled out baby girl Parker Jane

Us going home with our girls.  So blessed to have brought both of them home with us.  These little babies fought hard for their momma, just as she fought hard for them while they were in her belly.  

I am overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of everyone around us- from the doctors, to the nursing staff, to family, and friends.. and especially from people we don’t even know wishing us well with congrats.  

Our hospital room was filled with gifts and a rainforest of flower bouquets- making our side of the post-partum floor smell like a florist had moved in.  We both cried on our way home- we didn’t want to leave such a wonderful environment.

Every day (and all night long..) I wake up to these sweet baby faces and thank God for His great hands in our lives with these girls.  They seem to change every time I look at them!

If you have been following me on Instagram (masseya) I’m sorry that I’m not sorry for sharing tons of pictures over that last week or so.  I promise I’ve refrained.  I have hundreds!  I just want to capture every single move they make so I can remember it all.  Taking time to soak it all in.  

Parker and Jolie’s birth story to come- but for now.. going to spend some momma time with my little bits.  They are already 8 days old!!

    Congratulations! Found you via Camp Patton and couldn't resist coming over after reading you had twin girls! We have twins girls as well…five months old. 🙂 Excited to see them grow!

  12. Ashley says:

    Oh my goodness! They're precious. I follow you on instagram and love seeing the photos you post of them. I have to laugh when you say you cry all the time, because I did, too. It wasn't that I had baby blues… I had just had SO MANY HORMONES from housing 2 extra women in my body–that, and going from having no babies to two at once! You look great and like you're doing well. Congrats!

  13. Jessica B says:

    Congrats! I found you on Camp Patton as well and I also have twin girls who are 6.5 months old.

    And as Ashley said the hormones are crazy. I was probably worse in those first weeks PP than I ever was during the pregnancy!
