Just a quick update:
We are all doing very well - the babies are healthy and strong, I'm recovering nicely from the c-section, and Martin is one happy daddy :)
Lots of people have asked why I suddenly had to deliver the babies. Long story short, at my weekly ultrasound they found that Madilyn's amniotic fluid level was fairly low and the Dr's were concerned about my placenta detaching. It wasn't urgent to deliver them, but we didn't want to delay very long because of the risks associated with a placenta detaching before giving birth. So, they sent me on over to the
hospital and 9 hrs later we had our two beautiful babies in our arms.
The babies got to come home with us yesterday and we are figuring out our new schedule with these sweet little bundles of joy. Thank goodness for my wonderful mom here helping us. We are busy busy but it is amazing because no matter how tired we get or how many times we need to feed them or change them or soothe them it isn't a hassle at all. It is so incredibly wonderful to be their parents. I LOVE being their mom. We are blessed beyond comprehension.
I am BEYOND thankful for my sweet little babies and how healthy they are. I feel so deeply blessed to be their mommy and to be able to hold their precious little bodies in my arms. They are just SO SO sweet. Marty and I love them so much - SO much.
Here are some pics of our beautiful little babies
In the operation room. Our first picture as a new family :)
They are so precious. We keep them in the same crib and they snuggle together, it is so tender.

Ready to go home.
Leaving the hospital!
We are loving life as a new family with our darling little babies. Words cannot express the new-found love we have for each other and for our babies. Life is simply incredible.
