The Twins: They’re heeee-eeerre!!!

As of this morning, everything is different. Something in my heart got unlocked. It got shaken loose, and now it’s flowing through me. I’ve heard parents say it, but I never understood. So this is love. That unconditional, universal, unbeatable love of a parent for his baby. Make that babies.

Ladies and gentlemen … meet Finley and Fiona.

Finley, 4 lbs. 6 oz., 18 inches long

Fiona, 4 lbs. 13 oz., 19 inches long

Cutting the cord. One of the cords.

Hey Mom, look what you made!

Hey Ian, meet your baby sisters.

Dude … it’s bright! Fiona (left) and Finley.

Oh, so that’s what you look like.

After the weigh-in, Fiona went to sleep. Finley fussed.

Settling in.

I don’t have all the words yet, but I’ll tell you this: Everything has changed. Everything.

The girls are little — only in the 10th percentile sizewise for their gestational age — but they are breathing, eating and looking great. As long as we keep them fed and warm, they’ll soon be having tea parties, snapping BMX gates and breaking boys’ hearts!
