20 fingers and 20 toes

They are here!! I'll spare you all the details and give you a the rough story. I started to go into labor the evening of the 13th. We went into the hospital and then my water much for stopping the labor. There was already someone in the surgery room so I was next in line. Half an hour later they pulled them out. Since they were born at 34 weeks they showed them to me and then they went into the NICU until thursday and then transferred to the pediatrics floor. They has no breathing issues, just some jaundice and they had a hard time learning how to eat. They finally let them go home a week later. Here are some picture...
Amy Marie 5 lbs 4 oz and Cody Joseph 4 lbs 9 oz

they had to go under some lights so they got to wear some cool shades.
Cody looks just like Travis when he was born and Amy looks just like Tyler when he was born too.
They both lost some weight and I was just glad the let us take them home. They had to do a car seat check and they barely made it. They don't look all that small in these pictures but they are tiny things.
The boys were able to see them and hold them in the hospital a lot and when we finally got home they were so excited. Yes Tyler does hold Amy too.
Travis is great with them! He loves to help and is really curious.
My mom has been here to help and Joe Finished teaching school earlier in June so it's been really nice to have the help around here. But that will soon come to an end. My mom leaves soon and Joe starts his summer job shortly after that. We will see just how much I'm able to handle.
