Welcome Shayna and Sophie!

Shayna Maleah and Sophie Rose were born yesterday, March 27, 2010!
Shayna is named after both of Sherri's grandmothers (Maleah means peaceful, which is the same meaning as Frieda.) Also, Shayna is named after my grandmother Sylvia. Sophie is named after my greatgrandmother.
So far they are doing well. Shayna may have to be treated a bit for jaundice, but everything seems good besides that.
Shayna was born at 7:11 p.m. Weighing in at 5 lbs 11 ozs, and 18.9 inches.
Sophie was born at 7:23 p.m. Weighing in at 4 lbs 15 ozs, and also 18.9 inches.
Once things got going everything went very quickly. The hospital has a policy that all "multiple" births happen in the OR. Sherri was taken to the OR about 7:00 p.m. (Not that she didn't labor before that, but everything happened at once when she did get in the OR.) It was a natural birth, but Sophie was delivered "breach" (feet first).

Anyway, here's some pictures:

Can't quite tell from here, but 90% sure that is Sophie.

Sarah has been doing very well with her siblings so far. She keeps wanting to touch them. When both the babies started to cry, Sarah jumped right in there and cried with them. They seem like they will get along just fine.

Long Blog of Updates

Okay... so it's been forever since we have updated the blog so this entry will be quite long. Sorry! A lot has happened since the last post.

We took Sarah to Disneyland for a few hours to play..

Daddy dressed up as the new Mad Hatter.

We went to a family friends wedding that was catered by In N Out burger! Yum!! They also had a sundae bar... Best wedding food ever!
Here is a picture of my sister and I with Sarah

All dressed up in her party dress..

Sarah turned 11 months old..
and then a year (I can't believe she is already 1 year old!)
We took her to have professional pics taken on her birthday but I don't seem to have those on my computer at the moment so I will have to post those separately.

Playing in her ball pit on her birthday.

We just about finished the nursery.
I am just waiting for letters with the twins names to come so I can paint them and hang them above each crib. We decided to go with something that wasn't to "baby".. so we opted out of the options I had previously posted of birds and butterflies etc and went with this more modern approach. I absolutely love how the room came out.

We met my sister and nephew for lunch and then went to a new park to play for a while. Sarah loves to play in the sand and luckily has not tried to eat it yet. The sun was in her eyes, but otherwise I liked this pic.

I am sure there is much more that I am forgetting to post but for now this will have to do. :)
