The sweet babes are here!!

I am so excited to blog about this HUGE event in our family.
One that makes me so happy!
And, makes me cry.
All emotions wrapped into one.
Brittney's water broke last Saturday.
She went to the hospital but her DR.s didn't want her to have the boys yet.
She was too early.
So she had to stay at the hospital in her room
and wait.
and wait.
poor girl.
But, then on Tuesday morning, she went into labor.
Dr. Marten decided to schedule a c-section that morning.
I was so glad I was there for a little while before.
I fixed up her nails....and just chatted.
Then they came to get her.
About 30 minutes later, Brad was back with the news!

TWIN BABY BOYS Born : 3-29-11 1:21 p.m.

Baby A was named Grady Ross 4 lbs 15 oz 18 1/2 inches long

BABY B was named Tate Hollis 5 lbs 13 oz 18 1/2 inches long

Since they were 7 weeks early, they were put into NICU and will have to stay there until they are at least 36 weeks. They are doing so good though! I haven't been able to see them yet. Only grandparents and siblings.Brittney is thinking of a way to sneak me in. Just for one peek.It's killing me! Being an aunt is the best thing I have! I love babies. I love their soft skin. Their smell. I cannot wait.

So, in no particular order (sorry I was too tired to figure out all that)

here are grady and tate. with love, from their GREAT aunt jen

I love you Brittney! I'm so proud of you and know that you are going to be the best mother to these boys! Can't wait till they can come home and get spoiled rotten from all of us!
Love you!
