A Wonderful Surprise!!

Justin's parents came into town tonight to see the boys, so we took them over to the hospital for a quick peek tonight.  Little did we know that our nurse, Cathy, was going to orchestrate such a wonderful surprise for us with the boys!  I just told Justin yesterday that I could hardly wait for the day that I would be able to hold both my boys at the same time...thinking it was still a little ways off.  But, it happened tonight!  Justin and I both got to hold our boys, and we got our first family pictures!!  We even got pictures of us with Mammaw and Pappaw (Justin's parents) and we're planning on going back tomorrow night with Gigi and Grandpa (my parents)!  What an amazing, wonderful, and precious surprise.  I wanted to cry tonight because of what was happening, but I was just too happy and smiling too much to have any tears come!

(Just so you can tell them apart, Jack is the one I'm holding most of the time with the cannula on his nose.  But that is coming off tomorrow, so we'll have to make sure we have another way of telling them apart ready to go!)

Happy Daddy

Ecstatic Mommy...I've dreamed of this moment!

Our little family!

Reunited...not too sure what to make of each other!

I've been following your story since right before Will and Jack were born, what a HUGE blessing that you got to hold these little guys together. They are SO adorable in their football outfits! Love it. Congratulations. Continuing to pray for your family.
