Our Twin Granddaughters Are Here!

Last night our twin granddaughters were born at 33 weeks. Weighing 4.10 and 4.11, they are stable and doing well. They aren't identical. The son-in-law and I stood in front of them this morning comparing ears, noses, lips, and chins. Definitely not identical.

The one on top is Piper Jane to be called Piper. She is already a feisty little thing. Screamed her head off when they stuck her heel to draw blood. She wiggles all the time flailing her arms and legs around.

On the bottom is Della Scout to be called Scout. She's more laid back, likes to sleep, and doesn't make much noise. Piper and Scout; love the names! Good job, Mom and Dad. They're named after their great grandmothers Jane and Della.

With four older brothers protecting them, these little ladies will do just fine!

Thanks so much for sharing. It seems like only a few years ago that Laurel herself was just a bit bigger than these beautiful angel babies. love to all of y'all!

Aw congratulations! I have twin daughters and when they were born I remember my mum saying they were a gift from God. She was right.
