BLESSINGS, TWO BY TWO......

So the SUO challenge for today was GLITTER.  Glitter has it's place.  It's beautiful when used in the right place.  This card says, "You're in my thoughts, you're in my heart" and tonite and for the last few days, 2 special little babies are in my thoughts and in my heart.  The long awaited and prayed for twins made their grand entrance into this world on December 6, 2012.  Eva Rose was born first weighing four pounds.  So grandchild number 8 was another girl, and then grandchild number nine broke the chain of girls,,,,and Luca Daniel made his grand entrance.  Luca weighed 5 pounds 2 ounces.  Both were born and immediately breathed on their own, they both scored 9 out of 9 on their apgar tests....they both had good vitals.....Luca only spent one night in the nicuu, where Eva spent several due to her petite size.  But tonite they were reunited when Eva was released from the nicuu, and tomorrow they go home.  I am still in a state of wonder and shock,,,that we now have 2, not one but 2 new babies, after all those years of praying,,,,it seems surreal.  I will travel to see them on Dec 28th, with my husband, and we are counting the days.  Here is a little peek into our emotions leading up to their birth, more texts between Bethany and I.  me: u working today? it's tomorrow beth, the long awaited and prayed for and anticipated and beautiful event.   TOMORROW, TOMORROW, I LOVE YOU TOMORROW, YOU'RE ONLY A DAY AWAY"  beth: :) I'm working for another hour and then lunch with my girlfriend.  I'm scared, excited, in love, and just so grateful.  I can't believe this is really happening!!!!!!  me: it's happening baby girl!!  And then, the next day, the miracle of birth, and the miracle of two tiny little children coming into this world in all their innocence and perfection.  God is so good, and I just want to thank him publically from the bottom of my mama heart.  Thank you sweet Jesus.  You have blessed us beyond our wildest imaginations.  Until next time........Karen

So glad to hear the babies have arrived and safely too. I have been praying for them and Mama (and Grandma too). By the way, I love your card, very feminine.
