I figured out how to email the pictures to myself! Here are the boys! Aren't they so cute???!!!

This is David. He loves to sleep. He hates the light and you have to shield it from him so he doesn't furrow his brow. He's just so little!

This is baby Erik. I could only take a couple pictures of him and they all look the same because we couldn't take him out of his incubator. It was so cute though. Steve took me in to see him and he was crying really loud. We walked over to his bed and Steve started talking to him and instantly Erik stopped crying and fell right back to sleep. He knows his Daddy's voice! :)

After being fed, David started to wake up and was looking around a little. He's really alert and will just stare at you! When we were holding him, he kept hearing Kristi and tried to look for her to find her. He knows who Mommy is! :) We have a Momma's boy on our hands!

This is just a picture of David with his binky and you can see how small he really is. That is a normal sized binky they give you at the hospital. It is about half the size of his face. :) He's the sweetest thing ever though! Well, I guess one of the 2 sweetest things ever! :) I love them so much and have only seen them for a few minutes! I can't wait to see them grow and learn and learn to say my name! :)

My sister Kristi had her twin boys yesterday. :) Both babies are doing good. The first baby took a long time to come out. He played peek a boo with the doctor. He kept getting low in the canal when she would push and then sneak back up when she stopped. Finally the doctor got the suction thing and got his head and sucked him out. He got out and was handed to my brother in law, Steve. The doctor then got ready for the second one and shoved his hand up there to get the second baby turned around so that he could come out (ouch!). He was all ready to go and then the doctor got a really serious face (which is weird for him because he's the happiest man I've ever met) so they shoved my brother in law out the door while the doctor was demanding for a scapel that second. They cut her open and pulled the second baby out. He had the umbilical cord wrapped around his body and he wasn't able to breathe. They hooked him up to breathing tubes and took him to the NICU. They had settled on two names for the boys before they got to the hospital (but probably on the way there) but as Steve was in the hall with the brand new baby, it just didn't stick. So as he sat in the hall, he decided that baby A is David, he was 5 pounds 2 ounces and 18 inches long. After baby B came out, Steve came back into the room and said to Kristi, this is David (which was a name he hated while they were trying to pick out names but she loved it) and Kristi says baby B is now Erik (she named him after the doctor because he saved his life). Baby B (Erik) was 5 pounds 7 ounces and 19 inches long. Erik was in the incubator when I saw him this afternoon, but he is off his breathing tubes and can sustain his body temperature. He will probably be out of the incubator tomorrow (Friday) so he can spend some time with David, Kristi, and Steve. David is eating like a pro and will snuggle into you. The nurses guess that my sister will be able to go home Saturday or Sunday. They are the cutest babies I've ever seen! I took pictures on my phone but I failed to remember my digital camera! Boo on me! We will be seeing them this coming Monday and I promise I will remember then! :) Kristi is doing great after delivering a baby each way. She was up walking (well more shuffling) around. She is pretty drugged up but it makes for some fun conversations! (hee hee). I'm so happy to be an Aunt again and now we just have one more addition to the family to wait for. My brother John and his wife Holly's baby should be arriving shortly!

Baby Alert!

Kristi's twins arrived today. One vaginally and one by c-section. I don't know many details but they are healthy and pretty big! Both are over 5 pounds. I will see them tomorrow and make sure to post some pictures!

With the olympics in full swing, I felt a little patriotic! :) I haven't been watching a lot of it but I love gymnastics so that's mostly what I've been watching. I was so sad that there were so many falls at the preliminaries but they will do awesome at the real thing! :) Go Shawn Johnson! :) She rocks! Tune in tomorrow night (Tuesday) to see the US Women's team win the Gold!
