On monday morning at a little over 6 I woke up with the phone ringing in my ear. It was the mother of my sister-in-law (SIL) telling me that the twin had been born via a c-section and that SIL and twin was doing fine. Later that morning I received a phonecall of a super proud but exhausted brother-in-law (BIL) telling me more details of the how-where and when. Since that phonecall I have been in a frenzy of shopping for baby clothes, since Roy and Mandy were born 4 week premature they are like 46-47 centimeters and so very tiny...which means very teeny tiny cloths. My ovaries were doing a jingle just by shopping...can you imagine what I will be like when I can hold them for a first smooch session ;)
Each day BIL has called to keep us updated on how SIL and twin is doing, which I love him to death for. Due to visiting hours being very early in the evening and hubby is working late we have a date set on sunday to come see them all. SIL is discharged today due to good behavior and recovery of the surgery and it looks like the twin has to stay for another two weeks. No fun for BIL and SIL but the health of the twin is the most important of course.
Every night around eleven I receive an e-mail with pics of Roy and Mandy, and I asked BIL if I could post one of each to share with everyone the bundles of joy they and we get to love in our lifetime. *I'm so gushing right now*
I proudly present god son Roy:
