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.
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.
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!!
