I am so excited to announce the safe arrival of my twins – Zoe Renee and Bailey Grayson. We actually got home from the hospital Saturday evening, but as you can guess, I’ve been a bit busy since then. I’m finally getting a chance to write everything down about their birth.

Carol -

Thanks for sharing all of the details from your babies' birth! It was interesting to hear about you and your SIL in the race! The three kids will have fun celebrating their birthdays together:)

Sorry to hear about all of the complications you had in the beginning - and that the babies had too. It sounds like you are on the road to recovery though. Glad to hear that the BF is going well too - at least with Zoe. My DD - also baby A - was able to nurse a lot easier than DS. He did finally catch on though.

Hmmm. Tips for the first week...so far I can think of: sleep when you can, if possible keep the twins on the same schedule (that's been a lifesaver for us), remember that bouncy seats are your friends (also a lifesaver for us), and no matter how you decide to feed them (i.e. BF, formula or combination) they will grow - don't stress out if you want to BF and it just doesn't work.


Oh, and the most important...hire a night nanny. :o) (If only I could afford that!! LOL!)


(((hugs))) and good luck to you too! I can't wait to hear about your birth story!
