It was a treat to spend a small part of my day with Dawn's boys this morning. These two troublemakers are keeping their momma busy worrying! Both boys are still in the NICU and will be for a few more days. I know this info has been hard on Dawn who desperately wishes to be able to take her boys and their siblings all home. Please keep them all in your thoughts and send healthy " get-to-go-home-soon" vibes their way.
Dawn and I spent some time comparing the twins, trying to figure out how they are different so we can tell them apart in the photos down the road. We have decided that...
No matter the differences or "sameness" the boys grow to have, one thing is clear, Dawn loves them both utterly and completely.
Dawn has had alot of ups and downs this unexpected twin pregnancy. Early labour, a big move to another town, her momma being ill, bedrest, painful prodromal labor, sitting on a cot waiting to be induced for 8+ hours & too many more obstacles to list... have all tried to dampen her spirits. But this girl is like the Blackbird in the Beatles song, she was just waiting for her moment to arise. I am happy to announce (with permission) this morning after a really long 24 sleepless hours first Leo (head down) and then Sterling (breech) made their arrival earthside! It is worth it to note this was less than half an hour after the Dr. pronounced it would be at least three more hours, lol. These boys are already causing mischief!
Little Noah, is not so little anymore. I met with him and his momma recently and got to snap a few photos of his sweet face.
Surprisingly, Noah (at only 6 weeks) has already cut two teeth!
