I’m (almost) a week late in announcing this, but for those as yet unaware…
MY NIECES ARE HERE!
They are actually here, in the flesh. Twin girls born on Valentine’s Day, and SURPRISE!, they are identical! It doesn’t get better. They are perfect. (Not that there was ever any question about that.) And gorgeous. (Or that.) And healthy. And so is mom. I already have approximately 100 pictures, and I’m planning to go see them this weekend, so I’m sure I will amass a few hundred more to share.
Now, let’s get to the good stuff!
Raelyne Lee Gilmore: born at 2:41 AM, weighing in at 4lbs 12oz and 16 inches long.
Berklee Lyne Gilmore: born at 2:52 AM, weighing in at 5lbs 6oz and 17 inches long.
I can’t seem to get over the fact that they exist. They fill me with so much joy. Friends and family–other aunts–tried to tell me what it was like, becoming an aunt. And they were right – you can’t really put it into words. I already love these girls more than I could ever put into words. I
would will doing anything for them.
I cried when I had to leave them and come back home last weekend. I just wanted to stay there and hold them and stare at them. They have occupied pretty much every thought. I feel as if I’m about to burst open with the excitement I feel at the thought of getting to see them tomorrow. So, girls, Auntie Sydney is coming tomorrow, so save the extra-special cuteness until I get there!
