Jack and Braley!

We have been blessed two more times!

Jack David (left) - born on 11/16/2010 at 9:08 AM - 6 lbs 3 oz - 19 inches long
Braley James (right) - born on 11/16/2010 at 9:09 AM - 5 lbs 10 oz - 20 inches long

Birth story will come later - but I have to say that it was rough! I was very sick, shaking - the works. Jack was also born with bruises on his sweet little face. He was very low in my pelvic, which caused some of it, and then he had to really be pulled to get out. Poor thing : ( But he looks a lot better today and most of his swelling has gone down.

They are beautiful and David and I are totally in love.

Breastfeeding is going well! I am really happy about this, as I want so badly to nurse these boys. They are eager eaters and have been easy to latch on. We are going to start working on tandem feeding today.

My mom put it perfectly last night: "It would be right for one of them to be here and not the other. They were meant to come together."

I totally feel the same. My twin pregnancy was rough, their C-Section was rough, recovery has been much harder this time than last, and we know we have many rough days/nights ahead...but this is right.

Congratulations!!!! They are absolutely adorable!!! I hope you start feeling better soon. Yay for good breastfeeders! Those second babies seem to know what to do (or maybe it is because we know more about what we are doing?)! I am so glad you posted... I totally admit to checking blogger more than usual yesterday! Can't wait to see more pics and to hear how the big sister meeting went!!!

Congratulations. Is Braley a family name or just something you made up. James Braley would sound so much better with Jack and Paige.
