Aunt Randi

Ok, I know my name sounds super dumb like that but I am very excited to announce the birth of my niece - and nephew! That's right, twins. My brother-in-law & his fiance (whom I adore!) had their babies today (I didn't get a good picture of Mama F so I'll wait to post one of her & the kids). But here's Papa J with the kids - he really is so proud you can just tell!

Mr. W came first weighing 7lbs 5oz and 20.5 in

Miss S was 6lbs 9oz and 19.25 in.

Aren't those good-sized twins? She came out all wrong - backwards and upside down but apparently she only needed a little oxygen and was doing great. No time in the NICU, thank God.

He is the spitting image of his daddy, and she is the spitting image of their older sister, Miss T and their mommy. It's adorable. I am happy as a clam.

We went to see them tonight. I held both of them as did Big A. Even Moose got in on it and held Miss S. Squirt got in on some pictures himself.

Grandma P stopped by on her way home from work. She TOLD MOOSE SHE LOVED HIM. She has NEVER (in 2 years) told him that. I about peed my pants. And she was all over Squirt and held him and...was all fussing over how cute the twins were. Maybe her heart has melted??? I hope so. I told Big A that maybe she'll even start to like me....maybe?

But I can't wait until there's not a room full of other people (and other aunts - 2 of her 3 sisters were up there) so I can love on my little niece and nephew. Oh I am just so happy! And Mama F looked fantastic, just a bit tired, of course. Papa J was doing great, making everyone wash their hands. He said he's already overprotective. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Everyone gave him such a hard time about being a dad because he's really rough around the edges. I always told him he'd be just fine, and he already is. I'm very proud of my brother. :)

Anyway, keep me in your prayers. Big A stayed home today due to rain so tomorrow night is my big debut as a lonely only overnight parent. :) Keep my kids in your prayers lol.
