THE GIRLS ARE HERE!!!!!!!!!

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Alyssa Renee and Kaitlyn Marie were born today!!! It was very unexpected as we had just gone in for a routine checkup with our OB...(insert long story here)....our babies were born a couple hours later.

Alyssa Renee was born at 2:17pm and weighed 3 pounds, 4.5 ounces
Kaitlyn Marie was born at 2:18pm and weighed 3 pounds, 8 ounces


Everybody is doing great. The word "perfect" has been used many times to describe our babies. They are. They look IDENTICAL! They both have the same amount of blonde hair, it's pretty sweet.

Lisa is recovering from her emergency c-section. I am home right now to arrange for our dog to be taken care of, grab a cell phone!, and Lisa's hospital bag that we JUST packed last night! That's foresight.

Pictures will come soon but I wanted to just quickly announce that they have arrived.

We were at 31 weeks and 1 day today.

Thank you again for your prayers and keep us in them as our family has just doubled in size today.

Congratulations!!!! I am glad to hear the girls have been born, safe and sound. Great weights....good job on the Boost and bedrest, Mom. :)

I am breathing a huge sigh of relief, and I'm sure all of your loved ones are doing the same. Give the girls kisses and tell them that a lady and her twins in Ohio are thrilled they are here.....the answers to many prayers.

We are so excited to hear the girls are here! Songs of praise are being sung for what sounds like a smooth and perfect delivery resulting in two perfect little girls. I wish we could jump on a plane and come see you four! Lisa, my advise is rest while you can in the hospital, it will be the last rest you will get for quite sometime...but think of all the love and fun you are in for!

Much Love,
Jerry, Sue and Coleman

DUH - the second comment from Ohio came from Laurie in OH....from the TTTS board. I had a blonde moment and forgot to identify myself.

The pictures are wonderful. You have some beautiful twins.
