...because it is impossible to decide on a title for a post announcing to the world the arrival of our baby girls!

yep,  on January 15th, in the wee hours, we were blessed with

delivery and recovery went / are going surprisingly well...the real challenge has been feeding such tiny bugs.  the problem is that they're so small that they lack the energy to eat, but without food it's kind of hard to muster up more energy. 

we've been trying different things to help them out and its made for a bit of stress, very litttle sleep, lots of tears, some success and some failure.  the doctors / nurses / midwives have been a great support and source of information and i think things are finally starting to look up.  you can certainly keep us in your prayers on that front. 

all that being said, i've decided to go on a bit of a blog vacation to focus on growing and getting to know these little muffins.  there may be a random post here and there and i don't know how long it will be before i'm back full force, but for now, the girlies are my priority. 

*note:  many of you have sent me notes, facebook messages, texts etc and I just haven't had much time to get on the computer (hence this announcement being 5 days after their birthday).  i'm still working through many of them and i realistically don't have time to respond to all of them, but i wanted to thank you for all your kind thoughts and notes! 


  1. Hey Angie! So happy to see your birth announcement - I watched your amazing belly pics and was waiting in such anticipation! Congratulations to you both!

  2. thanks! sometimes its hard to believe they're finally here, and other times it feels like they've been around forever - funny how that happens!
