A huge double congratulations to you and hubby. You certainly are genius! Seperate identities just to confuse their school teachers. Hugs Cherrie

And the twins combined weight is bigger than any of my two childrens birth weights put together. It truly is amazing how your belly button coped. Cherrie

Gina said...

Oh. My. Your boys were ENOURMOUS for twins, you are officially my superheroine for breeding and carrying giants, and THEN managing to land them on separate birth dates!

Not to mention giving them great names.

Welcome, Arlo and Tavish.
Rest well, Mama.

Congratulations on the arrival of your twins. Fantastic sizes!

I too have twins born on different days! My daughter was born at 11.37pm (naturally)on the 10th and her brother arrived 2hrs 2min later (emergency c/s) at 1.39am on the 11th July.

Enjoy these early days, they go so quickly!

Hey Gemma, FELICITATIONS girlie, they are so beautiful, your precious twins!! Wow I can't wait to catch up with you...maybe when mine has popped out and we can call around and have cups of tea and breast feed together?! ;-)
I hope you're all well and life is settling into a pattern (and you're getting some sleep)?
Biggest hugs and again, you're amazing and your babies are divine!

they are adorable.....and what good weights! mine were 6pds 10 and 7pds 3 so you did well there!

trust me when I say time flies, they challenge me everyday but are so much fun and before you know it you're wanting another baby - or maybe that was just me!

enjoy! After they were 3 months i started to feel normal again!
