They have arrived

Wednesday December 15th at 12:00pm in the afternoon Madison Elizabeth made her big debut into the world. She weighted 4lbs. 4oz and was 16 and 3/4 inches long. And one minute later followed her little sister Madelynne Mae weighing in at 3lbs. 6oz and was 16 inches long. True to their form in my belly Madison was spunky crying making it known she was not happy and Madelynne laid on the table wide eyed and just took in the world around her. The littles were taken into the NICU after we got to take a quick peak at them. They had to go on Cpap but within a few days they were both taken off and breaking in regular air on their own. Aunt Brandi and Daddy got to be in the room while the c-section took place. It took about 45 minutes all together. Davis was in the waiting room and everyone else waited patiently for the news.
We were beyond surprised that we had two little girls because mommy thought for sure she saw boy parts in a sonogram. Mommy is still in shock that I gave birth to two beautiful little girls.
Mimi flew in to help take care of everyone on Friday and Papa Wayne and Momma Stacy got here on Sunday to help out as well. But Aunt Kathy, Uncle Cooper,  Greg and Alicia were the ones that got us through the entire month of mommy being on bedrest at the hospital. The saying it takes a village has never been more true in my whole life. Daddy and I could not have managed life without any of them these last few weeks.
While on bedrest mommy made a new friend. Her name is Jill and she was one of our many nurses that took such good care of us in the antepartum part of our stay. I am excited because her husband and daddy seem to have lots in common aka their love for trucks.
Your brother has been one of the best troopers during this time of craziness. He has been shuffled from one house to another so that daddy could come up and help take care of me. He is so excited to help take care of you. The saddest thing for mommy is that he hasn't been able to hold you or see you. He has only experienced you through the window of the NICU but seriously it made his day. There is so much more to say about each of you but for today we will leave it at this we love you and my heart is so full right now. We love you littles and are so glad you are ok.
