..some bath time cuteness..

Ok, so as you could assume the girls keep me kinda busy :) Since they were born a little early, they've had more doctor visits than normal, just mainly for weight checks. But they're back up to their birth weights now so everything is going great!

Just wanted to share a couple of cute bath time pictures. And yes, there will be posts that consist of nothing but cute baby pictures. I'm a mommy, that's what I do now :D

Layla, getting coiffed :D

Piper's turn! Love that little curl on top :)

..we have babies!!!..

*Mommy on Cloud 9 over here!*

The girls are snoozing, so I thought I would take a few to post all the good details. They were born Thursday, October 7, 2010 at 36.5 weeks. Piper Ann was born at 1:08pm, weighed 4lbs 12oz, and was 18.5" long. Layla Marie was born six minutes later at 1:14pm, weighed 5lbs 6oz, and was 19.5" long. Piper looks just like Jeff did when he was born, and Layla looks just like I did when I was born. It's really a crazy thing to see :)

Even though it wasn't the norm, the pediatrician and nurses let us take the girls home with us after 48 hours. Even though technically they're "preemies" they all said they have never seen 36-weekers do so well, and they just didn't see a need to keep them. *ahem, superstars!* :D

So today they're 4 days old, had their first doctor visit, and got more good news that they weigh the same as they did when they left the hospital (4lbs 8oz and 5lbs). Good news because they didn't lose as much as most babies do.

Lots more to tell, since I do want to post my birth story, but it's about feeding time again. They may be small, but they like to eat! (They get that from me, lol)

Don't worry, many more pictures to come :)

It looks like we will have babies tomorrow :D I've been in labor (early stage) for the last couple of days now. I'm having contractions but they're not painful. I'm dilated to 3cm but completely effaced. And I won't go into the gross details, but let's just say Piper is making it known to the Dr. that she's ready to come out!! :)

So I go to the hospital at 5:00am tomorrow to start my induction, if my water doesn't break on its own before that, which it very well could.

Can we say anxious?! :D I'm not nervous, it's the waiting part that's getting me. Now that I know it's happening, I just want to get started, lol. But I'm using tonight to wash some baby clothes and bassinet sheets, get the hospital bag together, and then hopefully get some sleep.

Don't fret though, I will be updating from the hospital if I have time! :D
