For months, my family has talked and dreamed and guessed what my brother and sister-in-law were having. They decided not to find out the gender of their twins which might have driven me a little crazy. After all, how can a first-time aunt fully spoil these babies…There is only so much yellow and gray a girl can buy, right! But the time passed buy fairly quickly. Sara had a pretty uneventful pregnancy (exactly what everyone wants!) She made it until the twins were considered full term and went in Friday morning for a scheduled C-section. Perfect pregnancy!
I wasn’t able to go down Friday to be there when the babies were born, so I obsessively checked my phone for text. Then, FINALLY, a little after nine I got my mom’s text! My brother had just come out to announce the twins…
TWO GIRLS!!! EEEk!!! The overwhelming majority of us thought the twins were going to be a boy/girl combo. Several thought 2 boys, but almost no one thought two girls! Everyone was surprised. Both girls are perfectly healthy and beautiful.
Here are some pictures of Audrey Harper Dewitt. She is the older, wiser sister by all of 1 minute. She was born at 8:48 am at 5 lbs 12 oz and 18 inches long.
Next came Eva Lillian at 8:49am! The baby (but bigger) sister with the sweetest little cheeks. She weighed in at 6 lbs 14 oz and 20 inches long.
Lane and Bethany adore their new little cousins! (I can’t wait to watch these four run around and play together)
Here are just a couple more pictures of the beautiful baby girls!
