We opted to have Maggie come to the hospital to capture photos of us when the boys were about twelve hours old, plus pictures of our families meeting the babies. I'm so glad we did this. These images are priceless to me. She did an amazing job. Here are a few (or a ton) of my favorites.
|Gus getting all clean and ready to meet the fam.|
|I was getting so excited to introduce Harriet to the boys that my heart rate monitor kept going off.|
|snuggling with Lou|
|the absolute best big sister|
|love this expression|
|Trying to wrap my brain around the fact that I have three children...still trying to wrap my brain around it.|
And here comes the rest of the family! They didn't know anything about the babies beyond the fact that they were here and healthy, so the next couple of pictures capture the grandmas' reactions to Harriet's announcement, "These are my brothers!"
|My mom is on the left. Andrew's mom is on the right.|
|Harriet picked out special gifts for the babies.|
|Andrew's dad with Gussy.|
|Uncle Brad (my brother) and his girlfriend, Alyssa, who is now his FIANCE!!!! Woohoo!|
|My mom had to unwrap the babies and check out their little arms and legs.|
|Harriet's gift from the babies - Clifford and Clifford books.|
|Watching the birth video.|
|I wasn't sure whether nursing would freak Harriet out, but she was totally fine with it.|
|Harriet calls her Sasa. Soon she'll be Auntie Sasa.|
Welcome to the family, beautiful boys. You can't even imagine how much you're loved.
