The day Stacey and I have been planning for almost three years finally came and we now have two beautiful bundles of joy! I still can't believe it and I still can't believe they're here, even though they took their sweet time. As disappointed as we were to have to leave them behind for two excruciating hours after we first met them, we couldn't have been more thrilled than when we were able to hold, feed, and generally just be with them for more than 5 hours during the day. Rooney even blessed us by blowing out her too-big diaper, her little outfit, and her blanket, all on her first shot...she made her daddy proud (not so much her mommy though). Our time with our babies sadly had to come to an end for the day following their first official photo shoot - gotta love that the passport photo guy makes house or hospital calls. Due to their later than expected arrival, we're doing all we can, and getting a lot of cooperation from everyone who have the liberty, to try to get us back home so Brady and Rooney can meet all their wonderful friends and family. We wrapped today with yet another shopping trip to get some much-needed preemie diapers, a specific type of formula to help our little ones bulk-up (at a cheap price of $5 per can vs $20+ at home), and some gender-specific preemie onesies and other clothing for Rooney, who, unlike her one-minute-older big brother, did not have the benefit of having an older cousin (thanks again Ben) who was so generous with little girl clothes.
Thanks to all for the well wishes. Here are a couple pics from today, but we'll share more soon. The plan is to pick our healthy babies up from the hospital in the morning!
