Happy Birthday Thomas and Maddy

I am excited to say that Thomas made his debut at 8:31 pm weighing in at 5lbs and 14 ounces. He is a healthy and strong little man. Madelynn arrived shortly after at 8:35 weighing in at 6lbs and 4 ounces. It was amazing how quickly they came. Thomas came in 3 contractions and about 7 pushes and Maddy took only one contraction and 2 pushes. Everyone in the ER commented on how quickly they came once we got started. It was amazing...I could see the whole thing through a reflection in the overhead OR lights. (We delivered in the OR due to the chance of a C-Section with twins). What an amazing God we have!!! I will post pictures soon but I am afraid I am exhausted for now. Shannon just ran to get a bite to eat. It is 1:20 am and Shannon and I have been up since 3:30 am....not that we really even slept last night. Thank you all for your prayers!!! Again, pictures will come tomorrow! Blessings!

Oh..I have to give a shout out to our wonderful nurses and doctors: Dr. Holsten of course (our angel) and nurse Becky and nurse Nicki and nurse Kara (she stayed to see the delivery even after her shift ended....we bonded as she put it) and nurses Emily and Penny. Thank you all for your wonderful care and support!!

Kelli and Shannon,
I am so very happy for both of you! You are so blessed. But so is Thomas and Maddy.

They are absolutely adorable. I am also amazed at how "big" they both are. I can not wait to share with pictures with Maggie and Dawson.

It's a good thing you were at the hospital when the contractions started. Did not take long...

I look forward to seeing these beautiful "angels" over the years. Thank you for sharing pictures.
